Lol Well I guess its kinda off topic now but about the whole Arab thing. They are by far my favorite breed! Lol I have a gelding at the moment and I'm most likely buying a stallion =) I'm excited lol. But yah, I'm amazed by the amount of people who supposedly hate Arabians. Yah, they're spirited but that's mostly just because they're so smart! Trained properly and they are (in my opinion) the best horses ever hehe I'm prejudice though =P

I know its been a while since this was posted but I want to give a big hoorah for arabs :)

I have only ever had one. Has name was sunwood ayhab or 'ayhab' for short. He was a fleabitten grey with all the fire in the world. He was my baby. I got him at 18 years old and he had been left to rot basically in a paddock for 5 years when I bought him, I saddled him up and rode him straight away. Although he had the fire of a million bonfires, he had the grace and respect of...i don't know what, but he was amazing. :) even at 22 he would run and run and run and even when you wanted him to stop, he just didnt want to. The spirit he had was unbelievable. He died at 23 from a snake bite :( but I think he still had many more years of life left in him. RIP ayhab. I still get sad when I think about him and he died 11 years ago.

I personally think arabs are the most loyal, hardworking and honest horses out there. Although they can be a handful, they can be the best friend you will have. (i know I know, many horses can be, but some horses just seem to have the "it" factor).

Good luck in your future arab adventures :)

I used to think arabs were funny looking with their dish faces. I'm more naturally drawn to faces the other way around. Some of the big guys: shires, clydesdales, belgians, and so on. But lately, there's something about the arabians that is really calling to me. I'm going to spend my winter in Arizona, and plan to attend the Arabian show in Scottsdale in february. I can't wait to be surrounded by so much beauty and grace!

Edited to add: Forgot to say ... I really like dogs with a ton of personality. The goofier, trickier, smarter they are, the more I tend to like them, so arabs sound right up my alley!!!

I never thought I'd ever have a horse of my own, but this morning I woke up with a big grin on my face. The fact that I'm going to be living in a place with horses next year, means I'll finally have the opportunity get to know them more personally. And there's no telling what that might lead to down the road!

I think Arabians are gorgeous. However, my new guy has turned me into a Morgan breed enthusiast! He is just awesome. And I know it's not just him, because my neighbor has 3 REALLY nice Morgans (1 gelding, 2 mares) that he shows dressage with and I take care of them when he is out of town. They are easy keepers and wonderful to be around. I just love their temperments!
