    8) Sensitivity to the lightest cues.
    5- YES. Like when I pass the mounting block 100 times when riding and on the 101st its WOW! A SCARY MONSTER!!

    6/8- My arab is quite lazy, but he is VERY sensitive to cues, so it's not like I have to beat him to get him to go :)

    7- Yep! Vinnie was a previous founder when I got him, but we got xrays and he had NO rotation. His hooves are great if you keep up on them!

    I can't help it.. :) :

    Well, they're at least the most pure breed of all :)

    I love them. The best horse iv ever owned (& still own) is my 17-yr-old mare, Chico. She has awesome hooves & my farrier always compliments them whenever she comes lol (but of course she's bred & trained Arabs her whole life so she may be a bit biased...)
    And as for the "bunny rabbit hop canter" i've had a couple people at my gymkhana comment on that as well. Chico actually moves more like Peppy LaPhew ha ha!
    Very bold too. First time I ever took her out with cows, a calf walked right under her belly & she didn't spook at all. Too smart for her own (my own, really) good & incredibly impatient but will do anything you ask of her

    I love arabs!!! I recently had to stop riding my love because of an arguement with the BO but I still love him to death he was a 11yr old ex racer named Outlaw short little stocky thing not the dainty breakable looking arabs of today he was often mistaken for a quarter horse except when he got his 'im pretty' headset and showed off hahaha he was a insane boy when I started riding him and in 5mo had him going nicely in a snaffle :]

    (first ride in the snow and first time out in about 3wks)
    Him and his cousin he is about 14.1 and his cousin is about 16

    Stocky boy(ignor the bit they had him in it and I took him out of it as soon as I could)

    My girl Whisper is my first horse and she is arab/paint. Before her I never thought I would want an arab, they just didn't apeal to me. I was and still kinda am the kind of person that thinks bigger is better but I've known her since she was born and loved her to death because of her sweet personality. She was going to be sold if I didn't take her so I had to sacrifice my love for big horses. She wasn't even rideable and even though she is only 3 she is still the smallest horse in the corral.

    The second picture is her compared to our 15.3h percheron/qh.

    That's what everyone has been led to believe, I have evidence to the contrary (if anyone wants to open pandora's box let me know ). Same with TBs everyone thinks they have a ton of Arab in them, they don't mtDNA has proved that.

    I do like Arabs, older types. I do not like the over exaggerated goose-looking ARabs. Everyone that has posted their Arabs have gorgeous ones. I think the Arab is great horse for many disciplines and I disagree not al are hot-headed whackos, I've met some very calm Arabs. I don't like the tails though, that's just me, I don't like husky tails either, I just don't like high tails it reminds me of deer and I really don't want to look at my horse's butthole lol.

    Arabs are one of the oldest breeds though I don't think there are many who are 100% pure anymore (some breeds like TB's, Fjords, etc are now but like wakiya said there's not alot of Arab in Tb's. The 3 foundation stallions were Arab but all the mares they were bred to were sometimes mixed breeds chosen for their looks, stamina & speed. Nowadays & since the TB breed has been established there is of course 0 tolerence of outside blood).

    Personally, my fav Arabs are the Shagya because they are less "arab" than the others lol. Some Polish arent bad either, so long as their characterisitcs arent drastic (like my mare).

    I totally agree. And they are one of the oldest but I don't think their THE oldest or as old as people seem to think.

    People are always asking me if my polish boy is a quarab!
    I think people are used to the near caricaturization of the breed!

    I know my guy is thick, but he still looks arab to me. :)
