Absolutely stunning Druydess!
I am very much into arabians myself, although mine are not Phara bred. I actually didn't even know that they existed until now.

When I went to see my new boy, the first thing I saw was his wonderful temperment. The second thing I saw was that HUGE extended trot and great athleticism......I went home to get the trailer that day!

That's what I love about arabs, not only are they beautiful, athletic, and willing, but they are such people horses. I really can't say I'd be sad if I only owned arabians for the rest of my life ;)

I noticed in pictures of your mare that seems to have extreme flexion in her pasterns. I also noticed it in pictures of her sire. Have you noticed if he's passed those weak pasterns on to any of his other foals?

Thanks ScharmLily. They are wonderful companions, highly intelligent, and their beauty is just icing on the cake. I love the huge extended trot that's passed on in this line.. I can understand your excitement! I'd be happy with just Arabs as well, though I do have a QH rescue who's a doll! ;)

For those who don't like me-- it's mind over matter; I don't mind - - and you don't matter.

When I saw his trot all I could think about was riding him. Is he smooth? He looks so animated.

100% Anti-Slaughter and PROUD of it!

Druydess...thanks for all that information...never heard of them before, and I loved reading their past, and some of the facts about them. Golden Ecstasy is a dream come true!! What a powerful, beautiful, forward, stride covering, flooring, outstanding trot he has!1 Has to be one of the most gorgeous trot's that I have ever seen.

The way he is with children is outstanding as well. If he is the definition of the breed...WOW!!! What a breed that is! Thanks again!

I noticed the flexion too, is that common with Arabs? And does it bother them under saddle?

Did I get it right that the sire and dam of Lewisfield Sun God were actually full brother and sister? I didn't know such breeding was desirable...

Nope, my Arab gelding even with my fat butt on board doesn't flex like that. I'd be worried about owning a horse who flexes that much without a rider. It's only going to be worse when you add that extra weight.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

Some may breed this way to set desirable traits, but it can also backfire. You seriously need to know your lines especially the tail female and the traits they are dominant for generations back. I, personally don't care for it but that is only one opinion.
