Thank you girl..
Stay tuned for more in the future.. ;)

But the way, there's more to come in a few months, but, as much as I'd LOVE to, I'm not ruining the surprise just yet.. ;)

A little blurb about the Spanish Arabian:

In "The Spanish Significance," S. Gordon Shreffler wrote: "[Spanish Arabians] have superb top lines and powerful hindquarters, and remarkable trainable and cooperative dispositions. They tend to produce size, and many, though not all, of the most prominent imported Spanish stallion are actually 15 hands or a little more. All Arabian horses have one region of origin. The significance of the Spanish Arabians ancestry is the selection process that gave strong importance to good dispositions. Mares that rejected or savaged foals or even were disruptive in the mare band, as well as untrainable, obstreperous stallions, were rigorously culled from the gene stream. After all, these horses would be military mounts or working horses - they had to be reliable under difficult conditions."

These qualities can still be found in the modern Spanish Arabian. Today, there are 40 to 50 private breeders in Spain, and Spanish Arabs are rapidly gaining popularity on the American show scene. Proportionally, Spanish Arabs win in American show rings at a higher rate than other strains. American breeders are developing their own American-bred strains of Spanish Arabians, and the willing nature, quality confirmation, and undeniable presence of the Spanish Arab continues to win over a new generation of Arabian enthusiasts.
