    This is Dante. He's my 3 1/2 year old project. Not mine but working him for someone but boy is this little Arab stealing my heart. Never particularly enjoyed Arabs before till he came along :P He's 14.1 and quite the hellian. He was one that was deemed "too crazy" and many people gave up on him and all he really needed was a woman's touch -_- He's fine and sane as can be. He is registered. What do you think of him?

    I'm a big Arabian fan and have owned them for over 30 years, so take what I have to say based on my long years with the breed, and not as a slam on this particular horse.

    Scrawny, short neck, fairly upright shoulder, and it looks as if he toes out in front. He also appears to have a fairly long back for an Arab.

    It's very obvious that he's young and has some growing and filling out to do, and he looks to have decent bone, an attractive profile, and a nice, kind eye.

    There are horses out there with far worse conformation, but I'm glad this boy is a gelding.

    He definitely needs muscle, especially in the neck but he is young. I love the color and he has a darling face!
    Can't tell without better pics if he toes out, but his legs look good. Back isn't overly long but like Speed Racer said, his shoulder is quite upright.
    I think him quite handsome! Good luck with him :)
