    I got some crap as a kid for having paints, registered paints with good lines nonetheless, as all my friends had grades or hand me down horses. I did my time on my TB and my grade, it wasn't like I got everything totally handed to me, but I got the 'So you're too good for a plain ol chestnut' stuff from friends. I've never bought a solid chestnut and likely never will. Just don't like the color.

    And on the same note, despite my interest in endurance, I probably won't ever have an Arab. I don't like the look or the personality, but that's just me.

    Funny enough, I have the best of both worlds: A foundation-bred QH and a pure Arabian. I tell people I have a truck and a ferrari - each has it's own specialty!
    Me too! Skipper W linebred and heavily Bask and Huckleberry Bey bred Arab....yuck

    In a show ring - never. Actually outside of show ring noone ever made fun of them either (although I was told they are not going to show ever, but I don't consider it as "make fun of").

    Well, around here if it doesn't run a barrel pattern people don't know what to do with it.
    Makes life interesting as I have RMH and I ride both English and Aussie.
    Folks here are very afraid of my saddles and act like they think it will bite them.

    My first own horse was an a warmblood barn. They were all scared of him, stallion, young, and pitch black. He blew everybody away with his nerves(nothing rattled him, not even a mare in heat) and his ability to do everything, from jumping to western.
    I tried different warmbloods, but ended up buying another TB, had him trained western, at the time QH and paints were new and exotic in Germany and TB's OT were only good for one season of fox hunting and then thrown away.
    Then I stumbled into Arabs....and stayed. Boarding at a warmblood barn. The owner:" I didn't think Arabs can trot"....
    Then I rescued a couple of standardbreds, we all know they're not good for anything, right?
    And now, in the US, a QH and an Arab. In Cali, where dressage, jumping, and exotic breeds like Friesians and Andalusians are the hype. And people don't understand that I don't go "ooohh" and "ahh", about them......well, I grew up with them, nothing exotic for me
    I did, if not convert, but at least convince, some people that Arabs are indeed horses who can work, and are not only pretty. And that it takes a handler who is more intelligent than the horse....
    My biggest prejudice moment was in Germany, when I started a Quarab group. Calling stallion owners, QH, for making stallions available for breeding to Arab mares. One lady said first flat out No, then thought about it and stated, it could help improve the good for nothing Arabs at least. I said, ma'am, if it wasn't for the Arabs, you would do your sliding stops on a draft horse.....

    Last year during our drought I helped a neighbour roundup and move 150 head of cattle. They had escaped the pasture they were in and scattered along the river 2-3 miles in both directions.
    I rode a 19 YO arabian mare in 100* heat while the others rode QHs.
    In the morning they all laughed and made fun of my 14.1 mare.
    After a couple of hours and she was still going while they had to rest or change horses. They stopped laughing then.
    The neighbour has always chided me about arabs and how he would never have one on his place. Now he wants a gelding of mine. I have let him borrow one to gret the feel. I think he is hooked.
    We taught him a lesson. Shalom

    Yes, ThoroughbredJumper, I was all over the board. Now though, I can say I am a draft horse girl!

    I like all the different breeds, they each have their own special abilities. Now I know this is about different horse breeds but people have said to me "Ew you ride a MULE". So I just say, "well let's have a race up that mountain and see who can get up there first". Then they never say another word about my mule again.

    I have this thought in the back of my mind of breeding my little mare to get a mule....But oh god, I might get shot. But I just LOVEEE mules!
