TWH is having an identity crisis
Started boarding at an Arabian farm two months ago and this is now how he holds his tail when he is turned out. Never in my life have I seen him do this
He's got his front leg extended really nice ----------- if he figures out how to do that famous animated Arab Float, he just went up in price:-P
Don't feel too bad. It's typical for them to mimic another horse and I can't think of a better breed to mimic than Arabians:D
My TWH with the champagne-smooth running walk will do all kinds of Arab stuff when he gets behind my 27 yr old Arab.
They have been pasture mates for 16+ years. My TWH has never offered to trot when he's in the bridle; I finally gave up and quit hollering at him to "stop that trotting and Arab head snaking!" :rofl:
Watch this Arabian liberty class video. Nobody does a liberty class like an Arabian. I don't think other breeds have them but they're wasting their time if they do:-P
Right about one minute into the video pay close attention to his front feet. That is NOT the camera playing tricks, that is natural animation that is typical of an Arab, although this stallion is much better than most.
My Crabbet-bred Arab used to bring tears to my eyes when he floated across the pasture in slo-mo. He never has been a fast mover, so that slow trot with those extended legs and hooves that seemed to freeze mid-air was as awesome to behold as my sr. TWH who can get under himself like nobody's business, at his dog walk in the pasture.
My Arab can still float but at 27 and with a back full of arthritis from an ancient vertebra injury, his animation is greatly reduced.
To my knowledge, there is no other breed capable of animating their front hoof movement like an Arab.
I have had Walking Horses for 22 years. I love my TWH's with all my heart but before I couldn't sit the trot, Arabs owned my soul and still do.
Walkinthewalk WOW it's like he oh so delicately touches the ground with those front hooves!!!! That is so neat!! I never really got to see the "float" before, totally awesome!!! :) I just noticed my colt flagging his tail yesterday, not sure why or if he's mimicking the calves when he chases them LOL
Arabs ... influential little buggers. Now, don't get concerned if he gets really vocal and starts flipping his head in such a way as to totally tangle his mane...
I love when they do that. Both our TWH mares tails actually go up and curl over their back. Our geldings just goes straight up like that. I love to watch them run around like that and have a blast.
thats funny you say that cause yesterday he would NOT shut up while I was riding.I thought it was the weather but now maybe its the arbs..there are about 20 arbs at this place. 4 stallions. Its the stallions that are so vocal around here. I think he is watching them
