Thanks everyone for your support. Sam is improving daily. If he would relax and not pace in his pen he would be in better condition.
In fact arabians have been used for racing for centuries which only makes sense when you realize all TBs are descended from 3 arabian stallions.
I will breed Sam to Krystal Flame D next year for a straight Polish foal and one aimed at either endurance or perhaps the race track. As a daughter of Bask Flame and a son of Samtyr this should be a very nice foal.
I think Krystal produced the best foal this year with Star. The black filly is going to be the best prospect for a performance class.
My only concern is that Sam and Krystal are both very hot horses and I expect this foal to be also. You can get too much of a good thing sometimes.
I like spirited horses. Krystal is my favorite of all because of the spirit she has. I just don't want the foal to be too hot. LOL Shalom
