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).
