arabs!

I would just like to know what everyone thinks of the breed! Please no negative comments please, as I am an arab lover and would just like to hear positive feedback!

LOL, I spent 30 years saying that the one breed of horse I would NEVER own was an Arab.

I bought Ace my Arab mare last July and I so wish I hadn't messed about for so many years looking for the perfect horse, because it turns out the right Arab has it all.

She is alert, but calm, is full of snort and blow, but never scary. She tries her best to do whatever I ask of her, and is just an all round sweet thing, I love her.

And I spent 30 years with Arabians and said I'd NEVER own a TB!

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

I love my arab. He's a total kook, off the track and a bit of a spaz at times, but an awesome trail horse, not at all spooky (unless he's bored or he feels we've done the same trail too many times then he'll spook for entertainment value) and mostly too smart for his own good haha!

He likes to lick my face like a dog haha


He also LOOOOVES camping


And he likes to be a moose in the winter bc he is always cold haha!
(spooky beast I tell ya)

I think these horses are absolutely beautiful. Being new to horses, I would be rather scared to think of owning one. Should I be more open to this breed as a new horse owner or am I just dreaming.

Serg: Scared? No. You should not cross out arabs as your first horse. Not all of them are high strung or even a little jumpy, it depends on the individual horse. I don't recommend that you ONLY look at arabs for your first horse though, because like I said you should focus on the individual horse not the breed :)

I love arabs so much! My horse Vinnie is straight egyptian. He is smart (too smart for his own good), loyal, sensitive, and has so much heart... he would do anything for me and give it 110%. He is actually pretty laid back for an arab (esp. Straight egyptian breeding). He is so quirky! I swear he gets jealous and angry at me.. Lol.

I shall remember this when it comes time to get my very own horse. I am in the process of learning the care of a horse as we speak. After a few months, it will be time to shop. I'm not the most patient fella so it wont be long before I own a horse.
