Having a few Phara Arabians and expecting the acquisition of a few more next year, I thought it would be interesting to present a bit more information about these Arabians who have descended from the Sun God lines, heavily Crabbet bred, prepotent, and breathtakingly beautiful..
Not many have these horses in their barn and for that reason, I have taken a personal interest in the preservation of such lovely creatures.
A 100% Phara Arabian is defined as a horse bred by or owned at one time by Annette Weber (formerly Annette Patti) of Phara Farm (Phara Stud Inc) or one whose sire and dam are each 100% Phara. A horse contains some percentage of Phara blood if it has a Phara Arabian anywhere in its pedigree. All members of the Phara Heritage Society can have the Phara percentage of their horse verified at no cost.
The Phara Arabian is easily recognized by several prepotent physical characteristics: their world-renowned extreme jibbahs, expressive round eyes and fabled teacup muzzles. In addition to their extreme type the 100% Phara Arabian is chestnut in body color (with a select few exceptions in the early years of the program), ranging from golden chestnut to purple, nearly black, chestnut. Mane and tail color are often flaxen, ranging from silver-white to orange flaxen locks. Classic children of the sun, their distinctive beauty is unforgettable.
In disposition the Phara Arabian is truly a horse worthy of its Bedouin ancestors. Exhibiting loyal, loving dispositions that desire human companionship, the Phara Arabian is gentle to handle and easy to train. They possess a hearty work ethic and "live to please" attitude.
