Just a reminder to stay on track and NOT to bring personal drama/name calling into the thread. Also asking other people not to post/leave the thread is NOT a way to go because it's a PUBLIC forum (given posts are polite and on topic of course).

I agree. It's a lovely line that would, I'm sure, be more appreciated and admired if more people had knowledge of it.

And it's high time too.. These horses have been "hidden" for too long. I'd much rather put my time in preserving horses like these than pursue whatever the flavor of the month is.

I'll be starting the photo sharing now...
Thank you- the luck was very good!
Well, the hurricane stayed away, but it was blisteringly hot. In spite of that, we did VERY well, and we more than qualified for Regionals, and yes there will be photos; I'll start one under the showing thread.
I've been catching up on your posts SunStar, and as always, they are amazingly informative. Love learning about the Phara history!!

I am glad to see the ignore function being used so effectively. Hopefully, the lack of response to people who seem to STILL try to demean the OP, will cause them to tire and simply go away. At least one of the people attacking here is a bit of a disappointment to me. If you don't like this thread and only seek to destroy it, please refrain from reading/posting.

She has a very short, possibly ewe neck, a weaker-looking back, and a Quarter Horse rump. The lack of flatness to the croup seems to be a characteristic of a lot of these horses, which really seems to go against the Arabian breed standard at large. I also noticed that many of the stallions shown in this thread tend to stand under themselves (not just their stance for halter--their natural conformation) and have mild calf knees. How do they fare, soundness-wise, under heavy athletic work / riding?
Very interesting question. I would love to hear what the breeders have to say about this. Personally the horses posted look like finer bred quarter horses to me than they do arabians.

Agreed. I've been reading this thread and not posting, but I've been wondering everything that has been asked about, conformation wise, etc. I have only personally known one Arabian so I am by no means an expert on Arabians but I do want to learn more. :)

I think the horse is gorgeous, but every horse does has flaws so I'm interested to see the answers to the questions asked.

This filly was a long yearling in the photo and certainly not fully grown. She has no issues as stated, and went on to be exported to Belgium. Crabbet-bred Arabs, which Pharas are, tend to have more bone and substance than what is considered popular with some Arabian breeders. There is much variation among the different strains/lines. And Pharas are not your typical flavor of the month Arabian. Not every breeder is interested in breeding for the same thing, so there will be variations in a horse's "look."

They are very muscular; it's typically one of the Phara traits, but I have not heard of disposition issues. My stallion is very sweet and kind, and loves attention.

SunStar, do you have any pics or info on Lewisfield Jingle that Denise mentioned earlier? I can't find anything.
Here's his pedigree:
