I would like to ask a question , but not start a war.. I have noticed that on the Arabians now, they have a super dished face and the nostrils are more upward on the nose .. is this just a fad? It looks like they would get rain in there nostrils, and does that deep dish on teh face interfer with the nasal cavity and thier breathing? I liked the heads on the older style Arabians. The stallion pictured here does not have the nostrils I have seen on some of the horses I have seen on diff sites. And the dish is not a deep as on some of the other horses I have seen.
Congrats on your Stallion .

I believe certain sects of the Arab industry are steering the Arabian to something it never was. The exaggerated head and too-delicate body to me are not the ideal by any stretch of the imagination. I do hope it's just a fad.
I'm sure in extreme dishes- it would interfere with maximum breathing ability, and therefore- stamina/endurance.
I prefer more substantive Arabs, as one might guess considering my herd. They probably won't win any halter championships, but I really don't consider that a negative thing seeing what's being presented now, and I'm not breeding for it anyway. Halter used to be something entirely different and I'm not impressed with it today.
My boy is somewhere in the middle, which is what I want. His appeal is more versatile. Mare owners with either preference would find him a candidate to consider, since as we know, what captures attention first- is the "look" of a stallion. His other attributes are no less worthy. My mares are solidly Crabbet-based, which is a great foundation for temperament, versatility, substance, intelligence, and yes- beauty. I prefer the older-style Arabian and that is what I keep in mind with my breeding stock.
Thanks for the kind congrats!

Druy, yes I noticed that you don't have the horses with that face. It looks almost alien. Probably going to tick someone off .. but its like the quarter horses with the butts up in the air like a manx cat.. and the halter horses with no leg and hooves. Its a shame that people have to try to change the animal to a ridiculous standard. I like horses of every breed, and those that have correct confo and not confo to some fad, are the prettiest horses.

I can vouch for Dru's horses being more "substantive." In all honesty the pictures do not do any of them justice. They are more beautiful in person. Dream is just phenomenal and her two colts Echo and Psynnie are going to be lookers as well. Dru is doing a tremendous job with the "older" Arab bloodlines and maintaining a good foundation of the "older" Arab lines. Being an old type Arab person its refreshing to see Dru stay true to the breed.

BBB Crone.. your words are so kind and so appreciated. I have to take some time to reply to such generous thoughts -- but being quite tired after a long day, I dare not do so now..
You and your hubby were the highlights of my day Sunday and I expect we will have a long and interesting friendship. ;)
