Haha - with Stewie's mix and lineage, he could be a reproduction of the missing link between the primitive breeds and those developed later like the Turks, Barbs, and Arabs. He does remind me of Ayla's horse - perhaps you should have named him Whinny...

The Arabian breed is typically known as the improvement breed/blood. There is Arabian Blood in most all horses as they typically are known to be the only purebreed of horse that exisits today. There is of course those that dispute this and state the Akhal Teke is the only purebreed that exisits....so who is correct?? I am not an expert nor is there a 100% guarantee either is correct so I continue to read and learn. Thus far, based on the information I have as of todays date, my vote if I had to vote would go to the Purebred Arabian ;)

Yes, it's true, don't no when people realize this fact though.

Anglo-Arabians are 1/2 Arabian and 1/2 TB.

The AHA recognizes them as an actual breed and registers them as such, not just as Half Arabian.

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

Very intertaining to read. Nothing really new, but intertaining.
I have always enjoy how so many people tend to think that the Arabians are the original "pure bred" horse. They just showed up one day (walking out from behind the sand dune into a bedouin camp probably) and said "Here we are. A pure breed of horse and we've selected you lucky people to discover us after the millions of years we've been hiding from you." :))

Let's change to over to reality now. The arbian, like every domestic animal we have in this country (no matter how far back you can trace it's blood line) is the product of selective (or in some cases not so selective) breeding.

The closest thing to a "pure" bloodline horse would be the Przewalski's Horse, but I'm not sure that even they are genetically pure and haven't been altered at some point by other domestic pairing in their history. I don't believe they even have the same number of chromosomes as domestic horses.

Anyway, forget the pure blood concept with horses. It doesn't exist and likely has not existed during any part of man's recorded history.

Does make for intertaining reading though *laugh*
