They did, and do, indeed exist. They are "strains" of Arabians produced by different tribes according to their personal preferences. Here's a link that explains the different strains:

Thanks for the link. :) Are yours anything related? Which type are yours most like?

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again

If I ever get an Arabian I think I'll invest in one of those saddle sets from your link, one of blue and silver, or one of black and red, or black and silver (or gold) would look stunning with a black horse.

It really depends on the individual horse. Mine are a mix of strains, as is most Arabians these days. After being imported from the UAE, most have been outcrossed with "other strains" - as our breeding practices focused/focuses on entirely different criteria.

I'm pleased to find that Dream has 32.89% Crabbet/Blunt breeding. Though not as high a percentage as my other horses, this qualifies him to participate in ECAHS events and apparently the Crabbet breeding is enough to influence superior temperament, sharp mind, and willingness to work. This boy certainly loves a challenge!

A recent shot of Dream's younger brother, Legend. What a beautifully sculpted head and doe eye this bloodline puts on babies..not to mention substance, bone, and conformation.
I can't wait to see Dream's foal with this boy's Dam, TanZyr Midnight Angel.
