Bloodline Comparison Between 2 Arabian Mares?!?
 
My family has bred two of our Arabian mares, names listed below, to the same Arabian stallion who is also owned by us (son of the famous black stallion Zambizy). Besides the few well known names on their pedigrees I'm having a hard time comparing their bloodlines. Can anyone tell me the significant differences between the breeding of these two mares and what you may expect to see in their offspring? Obviously we can't predict anything about their foals, however it would be nice to know what people's opinions are :-)

MARES:
MA HIJO VELVET
&
JJ EMILEE

STALLION
ZAIRE SLG

It would be much easier if you would put the mares and the stallion on allbreedpedigree.com
That way folks who recognise and know horses further back in the pedigrees can say something too:-)

Sorry I didn't even realize they weren't already on allbreedpedigree! Ok here are their links:

MA HIJO VELVET: Ma Hijo Velvet Arabian

JJ EMILEE: Jj Emilee Arabian

ZAIRE SLG (STALLION): All Breed Pedigree Query

Nice nice pedigrees....me likes:-)
First one is Polish Crabbet, with a tiny dose of Egyptian.
second one is Polish(mainly), with Russian and also Egyptian via Aswan. And some Crabbet.
Stallion is mainly Polish Egyptian, also with crabbet way back there.

What comes out in the end....well, connections are there.
I found that foals often resemble their grandparents more than their parents.

Character should be nice, if my boy with some of these lines is any indication. He's the sweetest thing on earth:-)

I'd love to see them, tho. Got pics? ;-)

Would you say that both mares are equally bred when it comes to bloodline quality or do you think one mare has better bloodlines than the other?
I don't have any pictures of them currently, except a couple of Zaire SLG under saddle and in the crossties. I'll try to get some pictures of them soon for some additional comparisons. I appreciate your input!

I agree with deserthorsewoman and like to see the mixture of the "types" of arabians. they should cross well.
I like your stallion he reminds me of my own. He just needs the star strip and the snip and you might have stolen mine. I better go check just in case. Shalom

Okay so I finally found a picture of Velvet, although she is much fatter now :wink: She is now just over 100 days in foal and my fingers are crossed that she delivers a healthy baby this fall.

Looks nice and correct, but it's hard to tell with this picture:-)
But I have to ask....why such a late baby?

Very nice Arabians
good luck with your foals

Thank you Country Woman...Desert Horse Woman as for the late baby we did not originally plan to have her bred so late. We attempted two breedings over the summer which were not successful. We actually thought Zaire was infertile seeing how he's never sired offspring before. My uncle bred her for one last try in November and she ended up taking so we were very surprised. The thought of a baby being born in cold weather does worry me but fortunately she is in KY which is a whole lot warmer than where I live. We will also have plenty of foal blankets just in case the weather doesn't want to cooperate.
