    I think that sound like a fabulous combo! I have no experience with Anglo Arabs, but there are some nice traits in each breed that would probably turn out to die for when combined.

    Of course I could see how the foal could get the "spirit" from both breeds and be a handful for someone who didn't realize what they were getting into. It sounds like you will have no problem with that though. After my VEEEERRRRY chilled out stallion(though I love him), I think it would be exciting to get such an animated breed.

    It will be fun to see the baby in about a year :)

    ^^ I can't wait to post those pics :)

    I went out to visit the stallion today and he is a perfect prospect for a daddy. Him and the other stallion there quite often run together in the paddock when there are no mares to sire and they don't kill each other. While we were there, jet came up to the fence with his herum in toe and the palomino stallion was at the fence. Jet charged at him when he was sniffing one of his mares but other than that they sniffed over the fence and even started grooming each other :) aaww very cute!! His temperament is impeccable. I felt totally safe walking into the paddock with him and walking up to him to give him a pet and a close look over.

    I've added some pics of him and his latest daughter born only a couple of days ago. The filly is doing well but she has contracted tendons. Is this something that could be passed on my a parent or is it a random thing? There has never been anything like this in any of his foals before but, it worries me if its something that could come from him.

    Foal
    He is very pretty, and temperment is very important. I have an Anglo Arabian gelding and really like him.

    One question though. That first foal you posted of his, out of a TB mom, is spotted. How do you get a spotted foal from a TB dam and a solid black Arabian stallion? Perhaps that foal is out of a paint in his herd, not a TB? I have seem painted TBs, but they are quite rare and usually Sabino, not Sabino & Tobiano, as that foal appears to be.

    the mare in that field is a frame overo, the foal is quite clearly a tobiano so it is not possible for the foal to be out of that mare (overo plus black arab CAN NOT produce a tobiano it is genetically impossible)

    Sabino is also not a term to be thrown around as they have a genetic test to determine wether a horse carries the OLW gene. You are only permitted to call a horse Sabino if they have tested negative to OLWS (overo lethal white syndrome for those of you not familiar with the term ) Overos and Sabinos can look very similar so it is often hard to tell - although I do understand what you are trying to get across that tb's typically express the Sabino type of markings

    Yeah that's my bad. I just checked through the email she sent me when she sent the pics and no, its not the one with the tb mum. So, my bad and I apologise. What she actually said was she didnt have the pic of the foal to the tb mum but in my hasty reading, I read it wrong oops

    The two foals are to different mums too if that's what was being referred to

    my comment wasnt at all about the foals mine was simply about the fact that genetically the comment that luvs2ride79 made about the colour pattern was impossible. (not that I am trying to put anyone down or anything nasty like that )
