    As a side-note, I read through a lot of these posts and there are people dissing Arabs and people dissing Quarter Horses and people dissing God-knows-what-breed, but really guys. All horses are different, it doesn't matter about what breed they are. To me, that's like saying all white people are rich and that all black people eat chicken- it's a stereotype that doesn't necessarily fit. Horses are like people in the sense that they are all different. Heck, you could find a Thoroughbred with the disposition of an old Quarter Horse or a Quarter Horse with the disposition of a young Thoroughbred.

    My point is that there are people here coming off as slightly insulting and it's not necessary. D:
    I'm sorry that we are coming off as insulting. As I have a prospective interest in Arabians, I think we are trying to generalise. I am not particularly concerned about individuals, in any breed, but I am trying to find out the average disposition. To say if I were to purchase a horse that was an Arabian or had Arabian blood, how it's performance, temperament, trust, mind, and spirit would be regardless of individuality. If it were just a normal horse that matched characteristics of it's breed. I do not believe that stereotypes come from anything. For instance, I'm pretty sure /most/ blacks (and non-blacks) do indeed love chicken. That KFC secret recipe is to die for.

    I do think some people are being particularly harsh, saying that they hate other breeds, or terribly dislike them, because of one or two horses. In general I am disregarding posts such as this. I know that OTTBs are going to be crazy, I don't think because they're TBs but because they are ex-race horses, though I am aware that some will snap just like that and be a non-race horse again. I am disregarding these posts because these are based off of individual horses, and I believe I can get the best information from those on here who have bred or experienced at least a few, but up to hundreds of this particular breed.

    I do apologize for any offenses made.

    Dang, well I'm poor, white and love me some fried chicken with watermelon and tater salad!

    I'm poor because I have horses. If I didn't have them I'd still be poor, because then I'd have to pay a shrink. I think I'll keep the horses.

    No offense vegas, maybe I read your post wrong, but it sounded like you were bragging that you messed your horse up so nobody could ride her. What's up with that?

    Uh-oh. This is about the point where we see the decline of a thread. May I politely suggest that if you have questions about off topics things that you take it to PM so that it doesn't start any arguments or defensiveness that is off topic? Not being rude, just sayin....

    I agree. I find this thread very informative, and regardless or not whether she takes care of her horses or not, I think that is something that needs to be discussed privately.
