    This is MY preference for an Arabian head:



    NOO! Not the fat guy with glasses! I'm talking about the overburdened mare! Jeez...

I know someone who breeds, trains, and shows halter Mini's, and I watched him shave a rather fuzzy mini with a huge winter coat. He was doing a show that weekend, and man, the difference between the horse with the "normal" fuzzy winter coat, and the horse all shaved up, you almost wouldn't think it was the same horse. So there are many different ways to make the horse look different than it maybe really is.

    I tried to ask someone who used to show Arabians, trains them still but no longer shows, about the whole dished head thing, and I loved my mare so much that I want to find another Arabian like her, I wanted to know what type of breeding she was, I.e. Egyptian, Russian, etc. The answer to the dished head thing wasn't really an answer at all, so I've been kind of wondering myself, I thought that the jibbah was a very desired trait if the horse had it, but I got a "what's that, it's got nothing to do with the dished face" type of answer which made no sense to me. He also said that my horse was a "domestic" bred with a little Egyptian I believe, which leaves me scratching my head as I've never heard the term "domestic bred". But anyways, just goes to show you that everyone had a little different opinion, or explanation, and there are many different types out there, which is the same with any breed. You can get TB's that look more like Quarter Horses etc. People always thought my Arabian was a Quarab. They had a hard time believing she was purebred, as they were used to the skinny, very refined Arabs. Anyways, great information.
    If you can put her pedigree on allbreedpedigree.com, we can check her out and tell you a little about her

    She's on allbreedpedigree already, Alada Dreame V.S. She also is the horse in my avatar. She I think is more the old style Arabian, topped out at 14.1 or 2, pretty stocky compared to some of the Arabians I've seen, and like I said, people don't believe she's purebred, they think she's half Quarter Horse. She's quite flashy when she wants to be, but she loved jumping, and had more of a dressage/flat type movement than high stepping knee and hock action. She's currently being trained for HUS by the person I gave her to, and she cleaned up at her first breed show. Nice to have the small sport horse type Arabian win in a show!

    Okay. Cool, thanks for the info. The grey is really cute! Definitely similar to my mare, and the type of Arabian I like.

    I was absolutely stunned when I saw his pedigree. I'm German, and I only ever saw two Bask sons and fell in love. But they were sooooo out of reach( of course, an ocean in between lol).
    Of course I had to have him! I would have taken him anyway, he was in a bad bad situation and had already signaled that he wanted to come with me

    There are pedigrees that tend to produce more extreme dishy faces than others. There are breeders that like to focus on those lines first and foremost. Faces and how they mature out are as pointed out a lot of times much different than what the foal is born with.

    Here are a few faces of GCA & Sport Horses that we love however..........we appreciate their mind and correct structure much more than their pretty faces.....after all we try to breed for longevity and the betterment of the breed

    I love Arabs and I love dished faces but I really don't like the extreme dish.
