I have met him a couple of times, and he's so quiet but has the most incredible presence about him. He's only about 15hh so on the extreme small end of the height range I'm looking for stallions in.
Yes-- a long way off-- didn't realize you were an Aussie!!

I like that stallion- looks solidly Crabbet. I love an Arab with more substance. Typically- you'll have a great calm, nature and intelligent mind with Crabbets. They cross nicely on TB's. You'll have to post updated pics of your girl when you get them. I'm sure she's filled out a bit since that pic. She's a nice filly.

For those who don't like me-- it's mind over matter; I don't mind - - and you don't matter.

unfortunately Dru since that pic she lost some weight so hasn't filled out all that much. Now that I've got her back to a good weight hopefully she can grow and mature and fill out some more. She's changed a lot since I first took her on and if anything is getting finer as she gets older - it feels really strange to have a narrow one after so many chunky horses!

Im thinking that Beraq is definitely the best choice for an Anglo Arab foal

Im thinking that Beraq is definitely the best choice for an Anglo Arab foal but Im also considering other breeds. Your boy Dream would be my first choice if he was in Australia though! Height substance head and colour.

When they go through growthy stages, it's nearly impossible to keep weight on them. TB's and Arabs can be a challenge. Beraq seems like a good choice, and TY for considering Dream- and for the vote of confidence. He would have been happy to "help out."

Yeah you can say that again! They're on 24/7 access to a big high quality round bale of oat hay which is awesome for fattening horses up, and Magic's STILL on a huge grain ration. So not looking forward to feeding her when she's in work haha but hopefully when she's done growing she'll be right. I just wish I was lucky enough to have one like my boss's 2 year old - Cherry is FAT on just pasture and a small grain ration.

Just looking out the window and omg, my chestnut is darker than my brown... O.O wow all the darkening suppliments must be working!

A CLEAN SLATE FOR THE FUTURE

I have a 17 hand TB mare that violates my rule of only owning "easy keepers". She is a granddaughter of Secretariat and Alydar and the craziest B*^%$ on this place. But **** is she beautiful.
She eats more than the pregnant and aged mares here.
Good luck with your mare
Druydess I may have to make a trip to Florida next year to view these potential stallions. My credt cards are going to hate you. Shalom

She sounds lovely db-- but it's not fair to tease us with such descriptions without pics! I don't envy your feed bill for her though.

Anytime you'd like to visit db-- you just let me know. I have a big house with extra bedrooms and your welcome to stay and visit the ponies. It'll be easier on your credit cards..lol.

Seriously, I invite anyone interested in my horses to come and see them first hand, interact, and spend time to see how they truly are. I saw your thread about flaxens earlier, and you'd love a few of my girls. With Psynny's genes with regard to color, if he continues to develop as he has been and maintains his conformation and beauty, he will be bred to Solei in the future. She is my nearly white-maned Le Fire Grand-daughter. He'd be a great contender for color in addition to quality, again if he turns into what I think he will, and movement is a given as well.
Dream also carries a chestnut gene, so we'll see if he produces flaxen; his ancestors have in the past.

A pic of Solei's coloring for reference:

The "aura" was regaled wherever she went. What royalty!

Since the purchase of Echo Empress, who is over half Spanish, and BA Chevelle who also has Spanish blood, I spent quite a bit of time researching these lines. Even my Solei has a bit of Spanish. Dream is just a great addition to the equation..
Guess we'll see what comes of it..

Haha you guys got me curious where I knew these names from. They're both in my geldings lineage along with Carmargue. El Shaklan is mostly on the sire's side to my gelding but he's also on the dam side as well.
I know enough about Arabian lines to fill a thimble, but I'm learning things yay


Dru, your stallion is just stunning. I could look at him all day. Makes me wish Amir was actually a mare and not just pretty like one!
