    I have changed my minds on arabians

    OK, so call me dumb, blind, or whatever but I've come to terms with arabians. This goes for all breeds, but arabians are the ones i'm choosing right now.

    I've always been a fan of QH's, and I'm always going to be, just how I am. BUT! The attitude towards arabians in my part of the globe (metaphorically) is generally bad...growing up with that opinion is hard to break...

    However, there are several arabians at the stable that I board from and I must say this........A horse generally takes on attributes from its owner, good and bad...and people generally try to find a horse that suites their personality.

    I don't think that arabians are all crazy and will hurt and kill you, some are, but I've seen many a mean QH in my day too that would hurt you too....

    SOOO!!! I think that I actually like arabs! Well, starting to give every one a chance now, versus approaching them closed minded.

    Just thought I'd share....

    Good for you. Just like every other breed of horse, some are good and some are bad. Good for you for going for it!

    My sentiments exactly, alucard!

    I grew up with quarters as well. I was always told that Arabs were "crazy." Once I got my first Arab, I realized that statement is untrue. He was a former stallion that had been abused pretty badly, and probably had a right to be "crazy," but he wasn't. It just took awhile for me to gain his trust, and now he'll do anything for me. I would say they are perhaps a bit more sensitive that some other breeds out there, but definitely not crazy.

    I love my Arab and my QH. I think all horses deserve a chance, regardless of breed. The fact that many people out there have unfair prejudices against certain breeds makes me sad, and it's refreshing to read a post from someone who has discovered the truth.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks guys!!! Yeah, I'm actually grooming an arab at my stable, and he's a real sweetheart! He's super polite, and he responds to the sound of my voice more than anything else...my friend also has an arab who's 20 something and he follows her around like a puppy! Another arab at my stable is the biggest goof ball ever. She's awesome.

    So, I've taken off the blindfold! Lol...

    Fehr, thank you! My horse is a QH, she's 6 and she's out of reining horses and she's my favorite horse ever, she'll do anything for me.

    Once again, thanks guys!!

    Your dp horse is adorabubble!

    I 'gree with what the others hav said. Yeah arabs might be a little sensitive and/or 'hot headed' at times, some more then others, but this doesnt mean that they are crazy, loco or otherwise.

    Yay an Arab covert!!

    I've never come across a crazy arab before. All the ones I've worked with were sweethearts!! Loved them to death and miss them heaps.
