I'm new to this horse thing, and so this might be silly but is it true that Arabian males are not as pure as females? As someone who wants to own an Arabian gelding, this is upsetting. Please explain:
"Unlike other horsemen, the Bedouins only used mares for the hunt and for war. Stallions were used only for stud. Most colts were sold to horse dealers because only a few were needed for breeding. Breeding was only traced through the mares, not the studs. A pure-bred or "Asil" mare was highly revered. It was believed that only an Asil mare could carry one to victory in war."
