    He is a beautiful horse. Looks a lot like a SE Arab that I once knew. He is well proportionate. Has the longer nosed SE Arab type head and he neck meets well with his shoulder. His shoulder is well sloped. The only thing that I find to be a VERY minor flaw is his back and pasterns are a little long (mine has this too and I don't see it as a serious flaw at all). But overall a gorgeous horse. What do you plan on doing with him?

    Thanks. I plan on using him for trail riding. I want to do long distance and endurance.

    Bakkir loves to stand in the "greyhound" pose all streched out. But he is actually compact with an average length back. And he can stand square. He has long legs and he is not fully grown, so he may finish a bit more in proportion. All though I love his legs. They are strong with good bone and he has wonderful movement.

    I can't wait to ride him. He can trot faster than the TB's on the farm can gallop. And its effortless, he floats.

    Best yet I have never seen him buck. I think he is going to love being ridden and is very brave so should make a great trail horse.

    Its too bad I had to geld him. He has the breeding to be a potential stallion but I just don't have the money for breeding, showing and promoting him.

    Wow his sire is one tank of an arabian! He doesn't look very SE to me, but I guess I'm used to the "newer" style. Cute guy, like the others said I can't find anything too horrid with him.

    He looks to be one you could do anything (and everything!) with. Good luck with him and keep us updated! :)

    I love the "old style" of Straight Egyptian Arabs - so much better built than the new ones...

    Well he is tied in for sure ( weak tendons, you can tell because his fore arm is more prominent than cannon bone and small and the tendons go in more that they should... hard to explain)

    Even though in pics he is camped out he has the conformation of a camped under horse so I would look out for curbs, bog spavins, and spavins. Also check this video out, this way you can get him fit and build a topline ( he doesn't have on one but hey he is only 2) and get him balanced.

    It works wonders!

    Oh and I forgot to say he is gorgeous! I love arabs, they have wonderful personalities if you get the right ones.

    He is gorgeous!

    Wow! What a beauty! And with parents like his, its no wonder! All 3 are drool worthy! Nice find there.
