do you have a quarab?

I am very intrigued by the quarab breed! I would love to see pictures of your pretty ponies and I would love to hear about the ones you own!

I have one! Well a Quarter Horse Arabian cross. She is 3/4 Arab, 1/4 Quarter horse. A gorgeous buckskin and looks just like her mom! A huge blaze, a couple of small socks. She's short..13.2hh, which we theorize is because of a irresponsible vet tech that declared the pregnancy lost then proceeded to give drugs that were not meant for a pregnant mare. However, she is a ball of fire. Very fast, quick learner. She easily carries a full grown man for her whole training session with no pain or discomfort (I think that comes from the Arab side). I don't have any decent recent pics of her, though her trainer posted some videos that show her movement, color, size and markings very well on youtube. Just search for his username which is horsemanoffaith. Here she is at just over a year old the day I bought her from the family that got her from the farm where she was bred.








Here she's about 4 1/2


And here's her mom a few years ago, heavily prego with Tink's half brother.




I will be getting better, new pics in August when I go visit her. Lots of them. I might see if I can go visit her mom again too!
I love my girl. She, IMO, got the best of both worlds. Great color and power from the QH and awesome refinement and personality from the Arab. Actually, funny story, when people would visit the farm and spot her mom from across the 5 acre pasture with her head down eating grass they would ask who that bay QH was and we were always very lost...then we would realize they were speaking of Sophie so we'd call her name and her head would pop up and...they no longer thought she was a QH! Lol.
Tinkerbell is not yet registered, it's going to be a long process with a lot of phone calls (which I absolutely detest talking on the phone so will put it off as long as possible). I would like to register her as 1/2 Arab and Buckskin.

I THINK that my fiancÚ's horse is a Quarab... She didn't come with papers, and the man we bought her from found her at a local auction. She is 7 this year, around 15 hands, and quite the foxy lady!!

As for her temperament, she is incredibly smart. We have to tie her with a Daisy Knot (I think that is its name..maybe it is daisy chain?), because she can untie safety release knots on her own. We also caught her wiggling her stall latch, so we quickly installed a lower latch that she couldn't reach. :P

She is very quiet, and goofy. Loves to be scratched. She is also pretty levelheaded. Her gaits are very floaty and nice to ride. I loooooves her, lol!

I've heard people say my pony looks like a Quarab but I honestly have no idea. I just know that she must be half quarter horse....just not sure on the other half. :)

I think Dixie is an arab crossed with paint...(she is a rescue, I know she is a little skinny yet.)

Here is my beautiful quarab filly who will be 2yo in august this year! :) she is a very fast learner, sweet natured and has great movement. She will be begin breaking in a year or so, but for now she is doing so well in her groundwork. She is half half, her mother was a pure Arabian and father a purebred quater horse. I could not be happier with her.

My sister had a Quarab pony as her first horse. His name was Dan and he was about 14 hh (if I remember correctly). He LOVED her to pieces and would call to her when she came to visit him. He HATED everyone else though lol. He tried to buck me off once, but other than that he was a lovely boy, fully of spirit but not wild. He was the perfect first pony :)
