If you're that interested, reading the history of the "Adam and Eve" of the horse world, as I like to call them, will provide you with a lot of information, not to mention historical value and entertainment.
My Arab is 26 and goes directly to Skowronek. He is old polish Arab royalty and wears a "do you KNOW who I am?" look when he doesn't get his curmudgeonly way. Generally he gets his way - he's an elder, I rescued him 19 years ago, he can pretty much have what he wants because he's not a bully, just a fuss-budget.
He has a big chocolate drop, just above his left rear coronet band on his white anklet that, according to lore, is the Blessing of Allah mark.
Here's a couple historical ariticles to get you started. If you click on the horses clear back on your own horse's papers, you will see the older generations and will recognize some of the names as they appear in many historical articles. Arabian horse history The History of the Arabian Horse
Arabs are an entity unto themselves. They have extreme intelligence and loyalty must be earned.
They are smart to their own un-doing which gets them into a lot of trouble with so-called trainers that don't allow them enough to time to learn what's being asked. Arab's mostly have to think it's their idea, not yours. Sort of like training a husband - lollollol
That is not my Arab in my avatar; that is my Tennessee Walker who was 16 in that pic but is now coming 25. My Arab is second-in-command behind this fella and they have been BFF's since they met 19 years ago.
