Arabians

So I thought I might reopen a topic on arabs. I just recently purchased a little black arab....recently meaning today. (YES GUYS! I GOT A HORSE! I'LL HAVE PICS UP TMW! ) I'm really excited because I just noticed that this geldings Great Grandfather Is El Mokhtar who I guess actually was the black stallion or something in one of the movies?? not sure...I'm about to do more research on it. but what do you guys think of this breed? I have always loved arabs....

Although I've never actually owned one, I must say I like their looks very much; stunning elegance, espacially the way they move. Bit hotblooded but still very good horses, if you treat them well. Some say they do fine in mostly any discipline. And, if yours is indeed the descendent of a movie-superstar, it should have a good temper, cause they dont just pic a random horse for a role in a movie. I'm looking forward to those pictures and hearing what kind of work you'll do with it.

Congratulations by the way!

Cass Ole was the original Black stallion and man if your horse is related to him you are so lucky! He was an Al-Marah baby(I think they have the most gorgeous and traditional Arabians in America.). None of the saddlebred mixed in, which I do not like! I personally own 2 Arabians. And not to be judgemental but Lohnr and BluMagic, I'm guessing you all have never owned an arabian before because I have a quarter/paint mare and they are 10x calmer than her and not hotheaded at all. The only horses that I have seen that are hotheaded are the halter horses but usually only when they go in the arena to show. Arabians are amazing in every way, one of mine even does a little roping with my brother, and is pretty good. I am so exited for you! Could you tell us the rest of her breeding!!!

Oh, no worries. I am just not a big fan. I've grown up mainly with Arabians along with Quarter horses and Minis. I think they are beautiful in their own way! Although I do prefer other breeds, it's ok. I'm glad there are a lot of people that love Arabs. lol. And Blu has some Arabian in him as well.

I'm actually not a fan of Arabs (sorry everyone - I'm trying not to offend anyone, I'm just stating my opinion), because of their body (espically their dished faces). But a few years back, I loved them! I really like how they can go any disipline.

I'm waiting for pictures!
