Texasgal, Charm is very pretty! I love that head shot! :)

Celeste, your two girls are fabulous! Abby certaintly doesn't look her age!

Tazzy, Izzy is lovely! Such cool markings!

Taffy, I love them old ones. :) He reminds me alot of a old girl I got out of the kill pen for $120 and lost at 27. Their hearts are amazing.
Thanks! We love her to pieces :) Best, sanest horse I have ever worked with :)

It was, one I did not truly appreciate at the time. His dam was imported by Lasma while in foal, he was sold as a yearling (I think). Got caught up in a nasty divorce years later & was donated to A&M by a vindictive spouse with the stipulation that he could not be sold. We stumbled over him purely by accident while touring the college (was thinking of going there). He was 12, had been there for years, not being bred or ridden. We were ultimately able to acquire him. We had to sell him several years later due to my parents' bankruptcy and it broke my heart. Didn't own another horse for years. I called the new owners several years after he was sold...spoke with one of the grooms who said he was being kept in a box stall with attached run, but that he was a stall walker & they were having trouble keeping weight on him. I asked if he was ever ridden...she did not even realize he was broke. Broke my heart all over, as he was used to being ridden almost daily, including "down the road" and cross country if that's what I felt like that day. I never called again.

It's amazing how sometimes the gems fall through the cracks. Last year I saw a beautiful Monogram son for sale for $500 - his elderly owner passed away and the kids had no idea what they had. If he wasn't older and halfway across the continent, he would be in my pasture right now.

I'll be starting my three year old under saddle this year, and re-starting my six year old soon as he can - it's amazing how many people think that just because a horse is a stallion they are pasture ornaments. Well, I guess a lot are (I know a breeder who showed Canadian Nationals Reserve Champion this year and have no plans to ever start their guy under saddle) but I think I would try. Just seems odd.

Thanks. I am so glad that Abby is still doing so well. She actually does show her age from the side. Her back is starting to sway a bit. I use a saddle pad that fills in the gap, so with a saddle on, she looks 10. She is the horse that my husband rides and that my son rides when he visits.

This is my new half-Arab mare (half Dutch Warmblood) that I just bought. She is an absolute sweety. I never thought I'd buy an Arab, but apart from saddle fit issues, I'm so glad I did.







This is her Arab side http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/gh+melynne
I don't know anything about Arab bloodlines, so if anyone knows anything about any of her ancestors, I'd appreciate the info.

She has a super nice pedigree.
Baskafire, very talented predominately polish stallion, sired by Bask, one of the greatest imported stallions, and often dubbed "Sire of the 21st Century". His dam sire line through Comet (This guy had a motor and what a great sire for producing extremely athletic performers) and some Crabbet through Indraff (Indraff was the only (this may have changed) stallion to win a National Championship in performance before winning one in Halter.) Indraff's skeleton is display at the Kentucky Horse Park.

While Baskafire has a great pedgiree, I'm most defintely partial to the dam's side. You absolutely cannot go wrong with a Gai Parada line!
What I love about these Crabbet lines is that they are incredibly versatile - you will find National Champions in everything from Western Pleasure, CEP, Driving, Reining, Halter, and Cutting within these lines. Just incredible athletes.

This is a very well thought out pedigree, and one I would definitely use myself. :)

My oldest is starting to show her age as well (26). Well, until graining time - then she can run like a yearling. :p LOL

Yearling
Once my kids get a little bit older I want to do endurance riding and I want an arab. My hubby thinks their like riding a pin cushion. He used to race and work with thoroughbreds and he doesnt like them either. :-/ I think he got old in his young age cause he likes to ride dead broke I don't want to move anywhere nags. LoL I like my pep and energy. My ssh has a lot of spunk and get up and go but you have to be cautious on her cause she will ditch you in a heart beat if she thinks you arent paying enough attention. My hubby wont ride her. But what better than an arab to do endurance riding with?! I know walking horses and other gaited breeds can also be used but I really miss my w.t.c horses. My apps been out of work for over 3 years now and I doubt I will ever get back on him more than just a thirty forty minute ride. I would also like to do a good bit of research into arabs before I ever jump to get one.
