Arabians are my favorite breed. My area (like most in the US), is big on stock types. So I had trouble branching out into arabs without catching alot of badmouthing from local horse people.

But, I stuck to it because I love them. Now I have a National Show Horse (saddlebred/arab), a 3/4 arab filly, and a purebred arab colt. I still like stock types (particularly paints), but arabs are my thing.

Every arab I have had (and thats quiet alot) has been very smart, friendly and willing. I think they are hugely misunderstood horses. Its not the breed that makes a bad horse, its the trainer. Lol.

Yeah, they were racing stallions. Juan de Shawn was a great producer.

I'll honestly never understand where their bad reputation comes from. Whoever thinks Arabians are crazy should go to Youth Nationals and watch all the Walk/Trot classes. There's hundreds of kids under 10 there riding their "crazy" Arabians.

yea i think arabians are pretty cool we have an arabianXappaloosa at the barn and he has beautiful gaits but he's a total dud head lol he tends to have spooky moments alot and he does stupid things plus he has issues with people riding him so he's pretty much just a pasture ornament :roll: but ya know whatever i guess lol its not my horse so yea. I still think he is pretty though and he has one blue eye which is cool too. I could show pics if you wanted.

still waiting for the pics of the horse i can't wait to see how beautiful he is.

I don't think Arabians have a bad reputation. They just aren't some peoples thing. Everyone is different. I like how graceful and pretty they are just not the personalities of the many Arabs I've met. lol.

Personally, I dislike Arabians, I think they are too high-strung and they aren't very pretty. They just seem to fragile.

haha, thats why I love my boy, because he is more fragile and So high-strung. I dig Parelli and thats what I plan to do with him. The people I got him from were saying he is WAY to high strung and I can't ride him with anything but a tom thumb or harsher. Tonight I rode with a halter. It was so great, smooth. AMAZING! I love him lots the pictures you were waiting for! (haha, does anybody remember the mustang I got last year...that was a mistake that lasted a month.)

OH yes, breeding. his grandfather was in the second movie, one of three. El Mokhtar. Thats on his dads side. (egyptian)

On his moms side his great great grandfather Gwalior++ was a champion...I think Polish......There is also inbreeding on this side...thats unfortunate.

So here he is, My Handsome man-

sorry guys. I tried and failed with uploading. My computer was being slow. Just visit his myspace page.

i used to hate arabs, but after working with some arabas in last summer i understanded that arabs i had met before are just misunderstud and mishandled.
Well, as i ttold i USED to hate that breed, but now im drooling allower if i see pics of one spetial egiptian mare... i WANT HER ;) hes sire is black and there is big change to get black foal from her too. Her owner will bred her in this summer and after foaling maby sells her. If the foal is mare. She told that she will bred her to get mare foal. She just likes herown bred horses more. Well i understand her cas that mare i like, has become really owerhanded on her last owners place. But ower caracters match, eaven her owner told that she(the horse whos really bossy with all others) likes me. And she told, that if she gets marefoal, I CAN BUY HER...

soooo waiting that first foal will be mare ;)

I have to say I agree with Roki.

The problem with Arabs is that there are so many out there that are not properly handled. They're a pretty high maintenence breed and many people just allow them to become high strung.

It happens with all breeds, but the Arab's nature is just more high spirited to begin with so it's exagerated with the crazy ones.

I worked for a man who kept 12 arab mares running basically loose on his property. They became the most ill mannered, dangerous group of animas I've ever dealth with but it was only because the owner took no responsibility for them whatsoever. However, I've also spent some time with the Garland's Arabs and those are very nice horses. Granted, many of them are world champion stallions, but you couldn't find a more pleasant, georgous lot anywhere.

It's always nice to see each end of the spectrum as I have with these horses.
