This, to me, is an Arabian where the breeding for that dish has gone a little too far for my liking:
Is it just me, or does that image look photoshopped? I'm seeing a diagonal line across the face of the horse, starting just below the "eyebrow" area just visible to the right of the head, and ending near the point where the curve of the jaw changes angle. That diagonal line, with the slight change in colour/shading on either side of it, says "cut and paste job" to me - specifically, that someone altered that image to make the horse's head shape appear MORE extreme.
If someone can reference other images of the same horse that look similarly extreme, I'll be more convinced.
I'm not sure "better" is exactly the word I'd use, but "clearer", definitely. Those photos really do look bizarre! Has anyone seen these horses in real life? Do they look as strange in actuality as they appear these pics?
This mare's head is actually a birth defect. She had a leg wrapped around her face in the womb. She was bred and her babies had very typical Arabian heads. It's nice that she has owners who think she's beautiful anyway, but I don't think there are too many Arabian breeders who would want to breed something that looks like that lol.
I'm not into really extreme heads but I do like to ride a pretty horse. It's been covered in this thread but the bulged forehead that gives them the dish did have a practical purpose for desert horses. The problems I see with some modern lines is breeding for tiny muzzles which make the dish more pronounced but can also cause issues, and breeding horses that are way too long from eye to muzzle which just isn't Arabian type.
