Arabian/paint cross questions and opinions
 
I have a chance to take on an Arabian/ paint cross filly. The owner is contacting the original breeder so that I can get the registered names. I'm told that the Arabian stud is an active show horse so I'm looking forward to those registered names :-)!
I was curious about those who have had or are familiar with this cross what you use yours for and are there any advantages and disadvantages to a crossbred horse of this nature. Also thoughts on what you like or don't like about the cross. I've only owned stock breeds I've never had an Arabian or Arabian cross.

Here's pictures tell me what you guys think! As you can see she inherited grey so those spots will fade. She seems cute but doesn't want to get caught she's looking away in a lot of her photos lol. She is almost three so just right for riding training!

I think she's cute!! :-)
I had an AppaloosaXQH, and he was the same way, hard to catch, stubborn, but over all he was a sweet horse once you got past his bullhead. LOL
Good luck with her!!!

People been adding Arabian blood to there breeds for thousands of years. usually to add stamina and hardiness to the lines. Usually paint/arabian crosses are out of a result of someone wanting a bigger, calmer, horse, of the QH lines, with the athletic ability of the arabian.

Well she has a stock type build which I like and if she has the endurance or an Arabian she ought to make a nice lil filly I plan on seeing her today if it doesn't start raining.

I just found out she can be registered as a half arabian as well!!! I didn't get to go get her today have to wait till next weekend.

She can be registered as half Arabian with IHAH. If you got her sire's name I can help you out with showing information. :)
Those spots may fade eventually as grey colouring usually does, but I think it'll be a long process.
She definitely looks cute enough, except she's missing a neck! LOL
I got a three year old that was completely unhandled (not even halter broke) and she was much the same way, if not worse. She's calm as can be, and you can even trim her feet! I think she'll come right around with daily handling. :)

Well she's been handled she's not wild. I'll let you know as soon as I find out the information because I would love you to help me with that. The filly's arabian sire is currently being shown I'm told he is quite beautiful. The owner contacted her original breeder and he is preparing papers for me so I can register her. :D I noticed she didn't have much of a neck either lol! Oh well there are worse problems she could have, I like the rest of her.

Her neck looks actually not bad for the rest of her body, it's just the first thing I noticed, having purebreds. LOL
That's awesome that the breeder is getting her papers for you. Now you can show her at Class A shows in the Half-Arabian classes. :D

That will be so fun I'm excited! I'm sure your used to beautiful Arabian necks she definitely has a stub neck compared to a fullbreed :D
