First time Arabian owner!
My very first (purebred) arabian! Picked her up for free near the oregon boarder (8 hour haul round trip). She is registered Egisis. They pronounced it Ee-gis-is, and called her Egi (ee-gee). Not sure, I have been calling her E, feel free to post name suggestions including nicknames, or she might just get known as E lol.
I got her from a preformance place she was being boarded there to get rehomed her owners are a lawyer and something else (nice people) they have had her since she was born but they travel alot and have about 15 other arabians they have bred, so even though she is 8 she has never been broke. This will be my 3rd horse to train and is supposed to be my first solo :) (but I do have a trainer that can help with her if needed)
We have a lot to work on, like touching her lol, she is very touchy in the back, and just about had a heart attack when I was getting this blanket on her but she is really smart and settles in to things really fast.
Well here she is!:D
She looks kinda of big in this picture but she is about 14hh i think (measure on friday when I get the stick thing). Right off the trailer after a 4hr 15 min ride, she was a champ the whole time!
I am 5'4" with my boots on does she look like she is 14hh?
Im gonna run back to the barn!
No I guess Ill stay with you guys.
Fable <3 finally getting a friend

What kind of arabian do you think she is?
Also how much do you think she weighs? I am 5'2" 110lbs-115lbs and I am hoping I will be able to trail ride and jump with her. I know arabians are built strong and I am not going to kill her when I start to ride her but I want to double check if she is big enough for me to jump.
sidenote: I did get her a new halter to the ugly grey-green one came with her and the rope halter was the smallest halter I had, I picked her up a nice maroon one yesterday :)

Welcome to the best breed to own :)
To answer your question, she is Egyptian/Crabbet on bottom, and Polish/Egyptian up top. She'd be considered "domestic" bred.

Really cute mare :)

Well- if this is her-- **** good breeding--
Egisis Arabian
Double El Shaklan.. good Spanish line..

Yep that's her awesome! Thanks you guys!

Rumonek 03-05-2012 10:17 PM

Yes, she has some darn good breeding behind her. You found a good one :)

Thyme 03-05-2012 10:20 PM

Thanks again! Her owners/breeders where proud of her they just wish she got bigger, lucky for me she didnt!

Druydess 03-05-2012 10:22 PM

With her breeding- she has the ability for good mind- stamina, and a loyal companion. You really chose well.
Bigger's not always best. I'm small and love my smaller Arabs!
That El Shaklan sure puts the pretty on them! I have a few and it shines through!

Thats awesome! She is always thinking about what we are doing I cant wait to start doing stuff with her later this week.
How do you think she would do with endurance trails and jumping?
