Arabian people, look here! Help with identifying stallion please.

Picked this little guy up at an auction the other day. I have the name and location of the man who brought him in. He was sold as a three year old black gelding. He is a brown stallion. Lol. Great manners and super sweet. Sorry if this shows uo weird, i am writing this from my phone. Any help is appreciated.

Maybe give him a bath first...

He's cute, hope that other horse is a gelding.

He's cute. There's no way of identifying him without any papers or names to go from.

Does he have a freeze brand? Are you keeping him a stud?

I'm in North Dakota. It won't be safe to bathe the horse for another month because of the weather. And yes, I only have geldings.<br />
<br />
<br />
I have actually found out quite a bit in the last few hours thanks to a fellow on Facebook. his name is Treasure, he is 3 years old, he was given to this gentleman ( the one who sent them to the auction) a year ago by a lady who had too many horses. this would be his breeder.<br />
<br />
the man also had his full brother, and they are purebred, however, he's a quarter horse guy and didn't get papers from her since he didn't care.<br />
<br />
so, hopefully soon we will get it figured out. I will definitely post results.<br />
<br />
nope. No freeze brand, but they do stuff like this all the time on the Arabian breeders network with even less information. just figured I'd ask here first and on Facebook.<br />
<br />
no, I'm not keeping him a stud. He ran through the auction as a gelding so that's what I thought I had bought. not a bad $100 spent though, right?<br />

I like him and that horse in your avatar.
If you can register him he will have to be registered as a bay. Arabians are bay gray black or chestnut. I know he might be a "brown" but I dont make the rules. LOL Shalom

Awww I like him a lot, he's really nice! Kind of reminds me of a Babson-bred Arabian (love 'em!).

He reminds me of my mare who is also a brown :). He looks babson bred to me (though my knowledge is limited)

Unfortunately, the person who was really good at identifying horses over on ABN was Carol Darnell or HFS was her handle, and she passed away last fall. She was a long time rescuer and did the ID work for a lot of rescues and seizures and got really really good at it and didn't mind devoting the time it takes. We're all going to miss Carol for a whole bunch of different reasons. I hope you manage to get his name and eventually even his papers.

Thanks everyone! I did end up hitting a dead end for now in finding out who he is, but I plan to get datasource next pay day and do some digging myself. Even if I don't find out who he is, it is fine. He is SUCH a puppy dog though! Total sweetie. The elderly gentleman that sent him to auction told me that his name is Treasure and since I haven't come up with anything better, I think it's sticking. Haha.

He's been wormed and we have been working on fine tuning his ground manners. He isn't bad and he doesn't invade your space, but we've been working on him moving out of my space when I am moving about. I can tell my gelding to "back" or "get over" if he isn't paying attention and that will move him. I just get bert-stared when I try to move Treasure with my energy. Baby steps though. He'll get it.

Now that he's put on some weight and is settled in, I am scheduling him for castration. Hopefully within the week. He's level headed and quiet and I want him to stay that way.

I haven't put him in too much work since we've been working on putting on weight but I have been working with breaking him out. We've been long lining and learning about giving to pressure since the saddle didn't bother him one little bit.

We've come far enough that we went for a short trail ride the other day and other than being a little lazy and scared of cows (funny since he came from a buffalo farm) he was really quiet and not at all spooky.

I don't know much about Babson breeding. Could someone fill me in? My gelding is CMK (mostly Crabbet, I am told) and I really like Polish lines too.

Now that he is shedding out he has the tiniest bit of rabicano and skunk tail going on. Just some really light roaning on the flanks and a some grey hairs at the base of his tail. That's more common in Egyptian breeding, no?

I'll see if I can add some new pics.
