I believe the reason the beduins preferred grey (especially) was because the black and darker horses would be more easily overheated, because their coats absorbed the sun, rather than reflecting it (like a grey, or chestnut would). So it wasn't necessarily because they were "evil" as much as they might not handle the work as well.

My favorite Arabians are the Khemosabi lines. I own a bay grandson and a bay Great Grandson of Khemosabi. I would recommend that line to anyone. I also have a son of AE Psymbolic that has a wonderful temperment. He is very young and waiting to see how he fills out and what comes of him.

Debi Spitzfaden says the following in an article appearing in the Pacific & Southwest Arabian Magazine:
Black horses have been rare, coveted and surrounded by mystique since antiquity. In the ancient Arab world, the horse's color was often associated with certain characteristics. Bays were said to be surefooted and enduring; chestnuts the most swift, grey were ceremonial favorites and the black horse was said to be the bearer of good fortune. The Prophet Mohammed, founder of Islam, is thought to be responsible for much of the Bedouins' color symbolism for horses. It is said that his favorite mare was a black and led a force 300 horses strong during the first battle of Islam.
It is perhaps because of this symbolism as well as the extreme rarity of true black Arabian horses that they were typically reserved only for the stables of sheiks and high government officials.”
Prince Mohammed Aly of Egypt, taken from his notes on Arab, type and colour states: “The black horse, being very rare and more full-blooded was reserved for chiefs!”
There are several other theories as well however as to why they are so scarce, such as them being too visible in battle in the desert to them being considered evil because of their black coat, hence being culled at birth.
For me, ever since I watched the Black Stallion movies, I have been obsessed with them. Back then, here in South Africa, they are very scarce, quality ones even more so. After years of searching and praying, Shazaar stepped out of my dream. He has many greats in his pedigree including Ruminaja Ali, The Minstril, Bey Shah and Aladdin. To me, he is a dream come true, the most beautiful horse and I love him dearly.
I have no idea how to upload photos from here - I tried but it's either me or our systems here work differently to yours or aren't as advanced. However, I invite you to see photos of my black Arabian stallion at the following pages:
http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/profile.php?id=100000407156217 (My facebook page - you will be able to access the photo albums of him)
http://www.retreat2eden.co.za/arabian_stud_farms.htm - under Shareef Arabians. You will also find an article I wrote there on black Arabians.
Keep the photos coming, Arabians are the best!
