My once in a lifetime horse was a purebred Arabian.
He was a little bay gelding who was barely 14.1 h but was absolutely convinced he was 17 h, and had the attitude and heart to match.
I trusted that horse with my life on more than one occasion, and he did the same with me.
Once you've bonded with an Arabian, they'll stick with you to the end. Until you've had that type of relationship with a horse, you don't know what you're missing. Once you have, you'll always want that kind of bond.
He and I were together 21 years. It's been almost 3 years since I stroked his neck and spoke to him softly while the vet eased him out of this life, and I still miss him every day.
