    You are probably right on that part, the make -up doesn't help mine, and others, opinions that the "exotic" look is unnatural looking. I imagine it can be night and day difference, just like women who wear a lot of make-up.

    Funny thing is I only fairly recently found out about horse make-up. Before then I always just thought they greased them up with Vaseline or something

    Thanks for your post deserthorsewoman! I love my Arab's head - the refined look, the large eyes, the large airways and floating nostrils, the tippy ears, the wedge shape, everything.

    I don't like heads on most other riding type breeds. I think they are clunky, plain, and generally just uninteresting. That's my opinion. Not everyone likes the unique Arabian shape (head and body) and that's fine.

    As far as the extreme dishes, there are some instances of health being negatively impacted at high exertion. That's only with the very extreme cases as far as I've seen. I've never seen anything for the most extreme cases having every day breathing problems, but it may be possible. That being said, it's so very rare. I imagine it's much easier to find a horse positive for HERDA.

    I like the mild dished head. My mare has a dished face but not overly so.

    I definitely can appreciate a nice Arab head, they are gorgeous! Like I said, I'm certainly not anti-arabian...It's just the extreme dishing that has been described as "exotic" and "typey" that I find bother some, it seems like too much of a good thing in my opinion.

    Just remember that in addition to the "makeup" and very carefully sculpted clip jobs, MOST of those ultra dishy and exotic pics are photoshopped all to Hades and back again. If you saw those horses in the flesh, you wouldn't think it was the same horse in MANY if not MOST cases.

    I didn't want to suggest that....I know it's being done...
    I remember many moons ago in Germany, a breeder from Austria, named Trummer was the first to do it. So word was " oh, these pics are trummered"...

    Its like most things "show" take a great horse then do everything in the world they can to ruin and change the breed . Those overly dished faces create horses that can't breath efficiently, pretty much negating the entire advantage of the Arabian to begin with.
    Arabians with dainty legs and dished out faces that can't breath or hold up long term,
    QH's that look like steroid infused freaks on such little feet they are lame by the time they are 7
    TWH, with rail thin narrow backs and shoulders, with no runwalk only a high stepping rack and bone jarring ragged half trot,
    Very little in so called show breeding I find attractive at all. SOmeone wants to breed some kinda useless freak because of it's look go for it, but at least have the decency to call it something different than the original breed.

    This is my Egyptian Arabian mare. I used to dislike her head, having owned some very typey arabs before, but I have grown to like it. She happens to be the best saddle horse I have ever owned.
