12 year old Arabian critique [BIG pictures]

Hi! I just wanted a critique of my new arabian, Diamond. He's a sweetie. We had a problem today, but he was perfect otherwise.











And just because it's cute:

He's really nice, I like that he has substance. What is his breeding/bloodlines?

Is he purebred? His head looks Saddlebred-y to me.

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

Thank you all! The previous owner says he was purebred. She has not sent the papers yet though. His registered name is LCA Diamond if anyone knows anything! His head DOES look saddlebred-y though. He holds his tail high and everything like an arabian though.

I wasn't able to locate him on allpreedpedigree. Would love to see what his bloodlines are. I don't really see any Saddlebred characteristics tho, Saddlebreds are typically very leggy and longer in the back. Perhaps he is Polish-bred Arabian?

Hi! Okay, I emailed the owner and she is going to try to send the papers soon, but she told me his sire and dam. His sire is LCA Barac, a black egyptian arabian, and his mother was Koweta Fancydance, a chestnut polish arabian.

Also, since this is in the horse colours and genetics, why would he have so many white hairs in his coat? I've been told he's not greying. I was just wondering if that's a colour or anything. The pictures don't pick it up well but there are lots of white hair.

I don’t know anything about Arab horses, but, regarding his head, I lived with a tribe or Bedouin Arabs in Jordan, and many of them had pure bred Arab horses, most of them had a head that looked pretty much like his, I think I only saw one with the funny dish face that seems to be popular for Arab horses.

Random white hairs are common on lots of horses. They seem particularly common on red (chestnut) horses.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.
