Here is Kaisoon at age 22... no swayback from this line
And for temperament, he was a gift from the Egyptian government to the German government, and could therefore not go to a breeder. He was housed, for nearly 25 years, in a zoo, and used, besides for breeding, as a school horse at a children's riding school. While being the most used Arabian stallion in Germany.
So it's safe to say Miss Pity's problems are not coming from his, or the Nazeer line.

She looks gorgeous when she's covered head to tail in purple fabric



(I'm assuming that's her... looks like the same costume and handler from her AllBreedPedigree photo)

she looks good covered up.they would be to ashamed to post a pic of her not covered up! That stallion Kaisoon.. I dont like backs that low, it looks 'wrong' to me, the withers are to high then lol. here are some more pics of her, she does not need more groceries,she did when she came her but that was 5 or so years ago.. if anything she needs a diet, last time Vets were out, both said.. o lord.. that mare is not pregnant is she.. I just laughed .. said no just a piggy ..she is dirty, her tail got chewed off, and she is due for a trim.. I know her faults.. Just using her as an example of what can go wrong breeding.. even if the pedigree is considered good. And I can do this Cause she is my piggy horse !..lol my back is out so the pens did not get cleaned yesterday or today.. Maybe tomorrow. the horse next to her is roan quarter gelding, again great bloodlines, crippled hind leg.

I've got a mare like this as well, and neither of her parents nor anyone in her hertiage sported a sway back. Her dam was actually a multiple halter champion.
But she was started when she turned two and rode alot. Not sure if that's an issue or if it's just something that popped up out of nowhere. But she's a helluva horse and I'd trust her with anyone - even me when I start riding again once my leg and hip are healed. :)
She looks ridiciously cute!

WS she is not broke to ride, so I dont think anyone did this to her. And she is really dumb. She can hardly canter w/o falling over her butt seems to go one way and the front the other. She is just a mess. Guess thats why I felt sorry for her and took her . I dont have a pic that shows how horrid she was came here, but if you ever saw the 3 stooges and the grey sway back skinny horse, thats what she resembled.. lol.. poor Miss Pity, at least she no longer has to have babies !!

for ?/ CA ?? not that I know of.. I dont breed her. She just stands here and eats and ****s. I ended up with her, as a girl that was exercising horses for me, had gotten her and a sorrel colt from some people that had been breeding her to a kemosabi stallion . the girl had the mare for a couple of months, baby still was sucking on her and it was tiny but 6 months old and both were bags of bones. After a couple months the girl tried to take them to auction but got turned away at the auction as they were still too skinny . The girl lived at grandmas. and grandma said get rid of them NOW.. so I took the mare. Probably should have taken both, but I was not paying for a colt that I really did not want , and the mare was supposed to be lead line safe for light weight kids which was a HUGE lie, and glad I did not jsut plop a kid on her back !!

It's a genetic disease. Clumsiness / shakes can be a symptom.
Welcome to the CA web !

I have a 23 year old Arab mare that has a killer pedigree and yet she is not that well put together. She is a little bit swaybacked and she toes out a bit. Her back may have come from early over use and her hooves may have been trimmed improperly when she was young. Or maybe her genetics didn't click.

She is, however, a great riding horse. She is also very personable and kind and would never kick or bite anyone. I never bred her. I didn't buy her to breed but to ride.
