Haha because they are bred for the desert.

She actually passed on nice green pasture one day when it was raining. She waited in her shelter until it was safe to walk out to the grass.

Right?? :( It's completely discouraging. We're really a lovely forum but a few of us are very passionate in the "in-your-face" way.

Also what's this "common sense" thing? As far as I know, we LEARN our instincts via experiences. It's not common, and it's not fair to expect people to be able to come up with answers that they don't understand.

That also drives me crazy...

"It's common sense" Yeah no it isn't.

I know ! I just don't get why people are sarcastic/rude/bullying to new members. I also hate when people say stuff like 'we say this all the time !' if they are new they wont know that !!

Well I'm definitely not a stranger to that. I get frustrated about seeing "how many posts to join horse chat" when it's very apparent in the multitude of threads AND the horsechat how to thread.

But yeah we all just need to chill out and be patient! Make people feel welcome not like morons.

Hehe all Arabs trace back to the desert. I have actually found this facinating and keep learning about them.

I think some people are rude but in such a sport as this there will always be very passonate people with very vocal opinions. There are so many right ways to do things that people just need to grow a little thicker skin and take what they feel will benefit them and leave the rest. Of course when some of these victims are kids, most of them haven't learned how to do this just yet and get very defensive.

Or you have those more experienced that have no patience for those who know nothing *shrug*

Okay well thanks for clearing that up. I definitely don't know Arabs as well as you do. All I know is that there are different "types" depending on where they were bred. Like Egyptian, Polish, etc. (those are the only two I'm aware of but I think there are more lol)

Hehe I have no patience for people either but since I'm still learning so much I try not to be harsh to anyone when they don't know something. It's when they choose not to listen that gets me going.

Yeap, my mare is a Polish/Crabbet. But when breeding stock needs to be replenished they always imported from the desert (Egypt area). And since they all started there and then were imported elsewhere when different countries wanted to refine a particular aspect of them they then became the new line. For instance Poland only replenished their stock after WWI, so most Polish lines are fairly new and quickly trace back to the desert. Crabbet isn't that old either, only back to 1800's. But of course if anyone knows different please let me know. I'm still learning and reading everything I can about them.

Edit: I keep referring to them as coming from the desert as that is where I get lost. I'm not quite sure on the difference between Straight Egyptian and Egyptian. Very confusing there.

Ah ha!!! I found the reason why they are babies in the rain!!! Taken directly from an Arabian website below:

"The Arabian developed in a desert climate and was prized by the nomadic Bedouin people, often being brought inside the family tent for shelter and protection. "
