    He looks like he could certainly bee purebred Arabian. There are small breeders who sometimes don't register either because of finances, or whatever - and even "backyard" breeders may not register.

    Not all Arabs are "typey" with the dished face and narrow, curved neck. Here's my mare (not the best picture of her), but she doesn't look very Arab here:

    Great pics, BTW. I can see you aren't too happy with him, or anything!

    Haha, thanks ;] He's the best. I haven't been able to ride him for the past month because I've had a concussion, and now he's lame (abcess in his foot) and some people are surprised that I go see him every day. I just really don't care if I can ride sometimes; he's my baby and I love spending time with him =]

    I just love hearing that. It is so nice to know other people who really love their horses and enjoy just spending time with them even if they don't ride. Sometimes I just like hanging out with them and loving them. My Arabs are all on the small side so I love putting my arm over their backs and resting my head against their side. It is our bonding time and they love it as much as I do. Problem is, there is a little jealousy from time to time so I'll get "hollered" at for spending too much time with any one horse!

    I've just never had such a bond with a horse like the one I have with him. I just like setting him loose in the barn and watching what he does, too; he's so curious. Yesterday he stuck his whole head in an empty grain and pick and licked it for 5 minutes, haha. He's just such a character.

    I would consider getting his breeding information. If for no other reason than pure curiosity. It may explain some if his behaviors, give an idea if different things he may enjoy going, and give you a heads up for any potential health issues. I love looking at my boy's pedigree - where his ancestors have been and what they have accomplished.

    I love how the rider in this picture looks fairly worried/shocked and the horse is like "Oh, calm down, I've got this!" with a lazy/calm expression. =D
    I have no idea what he is other than very pretty!

    I recently, finally, got the Western Horseman book "Arabian Legends". 12 of the 24 horses featured are in my Patino's pedigree, and a bunch more mentioned, either as offspring or ancestors of the featured one's. Pretty neat. And quite impressive to read what they have accomplished, back in the day when a halter horse was shown under saddle also.
