My quarab Sombre just passed away. I got him when he was 6 and I was 8, after my first mare was put down. Although technically Penny was first, I count Sombre as my first horse. He was around 15.2/ 15.3 (his withers definitely add some height there, they were pretty huge), and the hardiest little thing I had ever met- he could climb like a mountain goat, very good with his footing and very dependable. He had very good feet too, I never had trouble with them.
He was pretty much a 50/50 mix of the two breeds, temperament/ looks-wise, in my eyes- there was nothing 'really arabian' or 'really quarter horse' about him to me, if that makes sense...
He was ridiculously intelligent, had a tremendous personality, lots of spunk, but very gentle and kind. He was the perfect teacher for me when I was little, and the perfect friend as I grew up. He loved barrels and poles, never once knocked down a barrel, ran 16-17 seconds every time. I do believe every horse has one thing they enjoy the most, and for Sombre, that was barrels. He was very fast, loved to run. He developed a calcium build up in his right front knee, you can see it in the last picture of him grazing, and was retired.
All in all, he's my perfect horse, the 'once in a lifetime' guy.

I had a Quarab, Pippa, before I bought Sun.

She was a royal biatch, full of piss and vinegar. But I loved her and she was very talented. And gorgeous! She had some of the best conformation I've ever seen on a horse in person. Not to mention the prettiest palomino coat.

I ended up selling her because I wanted to event and she wanted to do barrels and such. She was a great jumper, she just didn't like it.

I'll see if I can dig up some pics of Miss Pip.

Thank you, Susan. I miss him a lot, it's very different without his little shenanigans around the place. But he's in a great place now, I'm sure of it- a huge pasture full of green grass where he can run around and eat at the same time, a combination of his two greatest joys.

This is bob, my 1/2 QH 1/2 Arab mare. Timid and a little scared around people but loves the trail and will do anything for you under saddle.

Trained


This is Innishfael Blessing, aka Linda Blair because on occasion she spins her head around backwards and spits pea soup. She's at the trainer's now getting saddle broke and he thinks she's wonderful. We'll see.......She's gorgeous and when she's sweet she's really sweet but she's also the only horse who has ever deliberately kicked me, reared up on the barn girl for no apparent reason, tried to jump out of the round pen (again for no apparent reason) just the other day and in general sometimes appears to be a little schizophrenic. Her daddy is a multi World Champ Pinto, so's her full brother and so far, she hasn't been able to settle down enough to take out in public. She also sunburns like crazy if she doesn't get her 50 weight sunscreen and heavy fly mask on every single day. And if she burns.....oh yeah, it's on. Jury is still out on this girl.

My new girl is a quarab. Not sure if she's pure 50/50 or if something else snuck in there... but she's a lovely gal. I don't have her home yet (next week!!!! I can't wait!!!) but the trainer is VERY happy with her progress and personality. From what I can tell (so far) she is very smart, energetic, and a total ham when she knows somebody's looking at her. ;) She's 14.2 - a little on the small side (since I'm just about 6' tall), but with her personality I couldn't care less!

This is my boy Romeo. There are times when he is the greatest guy in the world, but then other times when his not so fun side comes out, and he is just one of the hardest guys to be around. But I love him. He is very smart, that is his problem he is too smart for his own good.
Ill have to get some better pics =)

Old thread now, I know, but thought I'd photobomb it a bit now that I've got some good pictures of my mare!

Foal
The two best horses I have ever owned were Quarabs!! I grew up with mostly quarter horses and bought MY very first horse with MY MONEY when I was 16. Jasmine was a 9 yr old chestnut quarab with a flaxen mane/tail. She had the arab face and personality with the beautiful movements to boot!! I trained her to run barrels. She was an amazing first horse that taught me so much. I then wanted a second horse of my own and purchased Shine who was registered with the half arab registry, although she took on more of the quarters stocky build with a hint of the arab face. She was the first horse I had ever started on my own. Those two taught me so much about horses and I still miss them dearly and am thankful they let me be a part of their lives!
