I was told he's a purebred Arab, but I'm not so sure. - Page 4 - The Horse Forum

Pretty boy. Definitely looks purebred to me, as well. I have a purebred gelding who has a fairly straight profile, too.

Papers coulda been lost or someone didn't care and said he's not registered.
People like to switch horses papers too. Maybe someone wanted to sell another less nice looking one and to up the price used his papers to say he's registered.

Never know

Quote possible that he's pure Arab, though I'm not convinced about the Egyptian part.

not all purebreds are registered. There could have been lost papers, or the cost was to much at the time. We have a quarter mare, very very well bred, trainer killed her dam, so we could not get the mane hairs as required , so she did not get her papers. But she is cow bred to the max.

He looks Arabian to me. I board at an Arabian ranch - not all look exactly alike! As for registering - my horse is a QH. His sire is a grand champion halter horse. Dam is registered. The mare's owner paid a stud fee. NEVER REGISTERED the colt. Go figure. I have Biscuit's breeder's certificate. The breeder verified to me in person after seeing Biscuit ("yep, he's one of our babies...look at that head and hip") and signed a certificate for me to register him. It would cost too much. I think that is why they didn't register Biscuit - he was cryptorchid and had a slight roach back so he wouldn't have made it as a halter horse. The instant I saw Biscuit's sire I knew he was one of their babies...he had the same worried look on his face! Ahahahahahah

So I have a full blooded QH with no papers.

Your horse is lovely!

That would make perfect sense as to why Imagine was never registered then =] And thank you! Biscuit is a cutie, I love his coloring.

Thanks!!! Biscuit is a cutie patootie and such a sweet boy. He wasn't very well taken care of when I got him...he is in hog heaven at the ranch. Every now and then he channels a way back Arabian ancestor and gallops around the pasture, tail flagging, high knee action and snorting to beat the band. He is so funny.

By the way, the Arabians there are all straight Egyptian bred. There are several of them that have the clubfoot, high heel. The owner showed her horses extensively years ago and some of them are elderly now but still have that Arabian spirit that is so endearing. The stable manager is my riding buddy and she has a darling Arabian mare that is just fabulous. If I got another horse it just might be an Arabian!

Haha, aww, Biscuit sounds like he is getting some lovin' =] I don't know how anyone couldn't love on a horse that cute!

My baby has the club foot, too; I was originally looking for a fully trained horse in WTC that I could train to jump, but when my farrier heard about the club foot he said he might not be able to jump. I loved him so much, I bought him anyways; and my farrier took one look at his clubfoot and said he'd be fine to jump =] I'm hooked on Arabs, they have quite the personality, haha. Everyone at the barn where I board him says he's more like a person than a horse =]
