Good Lord did you do a helluva job on her!
I gotta say, that's one heck of a horse you recused there.
Not only is she beautiful, plus an Arabian (*grin*), she's also an Extreme Sabino. Pretty nifty!
Also, I thought you might be interested in this, regarding the mark on her shoulder.
That mark on her shoulder is often referred to as the "Bloody Shoulder". It started with the Bedouin Tride (one of the finest breeder's of Arabians back in the day) when he rode his mare into battle. He was mortally wounded, leaking blood down her shoulder's as she carried him home.
She gave birth months later, with her foal showing the exact same mark, and since then it was believed to have been blessed by the God Allah.
It's extremely rare, and sure does add market value to someone who's looking for colour, but is most often referred to mares with extreme courage and honour!
I'm glad you found her and will ensure her last years are spent with love!
