    My love for the breed is because of the personality, not the head, so I really couldn't care less whether a foal popped out without the dishy face. You don't ride the head!

    I agree my girl does not have the best front end and so that is one of the things that are most important for me to find in her future husband. I am looking at her going in foal once she's had a chance to prove herself under saddle so it will be a few years yet but Beraq is fairly young still himself and his owners are the sort of people who keep their horses long term.

    Filly has a typical young TB filly neck, but im a neck-nutt anyway my first TB, stallion when I bought him, had a pretty nice neck already, but that didn't stop me from pulling his mane so it would just barely fall over, to make the neck look even more rounded and arched

    Dserthorsewoman, one of the things about arabs that I truly love is the fact that I do not have to pull any manes.
    Hey I don't clip bridle paths either not until one hits the showring. Shalom

    You're right
    That's why I'm so spoiled when it comes to necks
    Have to add, the TB mentioned was way before I got into Arabs

    LOL-- you're too funny Celeste!! And I bet you ARE on the naughty list..
    -just like me!

    So which is it?? Pics- or no pics??

    Oh well-- here's one..



    And one of him after I first got him-- winter coat and unclipped. The halter he is wearing barely fits him now:



    Love his short head. His face has become even more refined, jowls larger, and his jibbah more pronounced in the last 6 months..

    That pretty much sums it up. They forgot what the standard actually was and went for extreme, coupled with politics and money. What's been valued in an Arabian in certain sets is far from what used to be. Those types are virtually useless, being bred for a spastic, nervous demeanor and to be physically inferior as a result of a one track mindset.

    I prefer shorter horses too, but the market prefers them bigger, so I have the best of both worlds..
