    yes, please
    The color guess came from not having seen any other color only grey and chestnut when you double up on El Shaklan. Shaker El Masri was chestnut, ...

    The vet suggested that as Sam gains weight he needs exercise to help him develop muscle. So I have been riding him about 1/2 mile every other day. It is really calming him down and he is enjoying the ride. He meets me at the gate of his pen every time he sees me with the halter in my hand.
    Before that I had to come to him.
    He has a very nice jog . He does not relax and wants to go faster every time. He even attempted a crow hop or two.
    I can't wait till he is in good condition again and I can ride him longer distances. He is well trained and very responsive to light cues and contact. I think he would have made a very nice english performance horse.
    This is going to help me decide which mares to breed to him and offer his services as a stallion to outside mares. Shalom

    I just found and read through this whole thread today. The new horse fact I learned today is that Arabs can be racehorses. Who knew?!

    I'm excited to sub to the thread to continue to follow Sam- can't wait to hear about his progress. And see the big reveal when full body shots are posted.

    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

    You'll be able to handle too hot just fine. You live in Tx don't you? My one and only this year is the self appointed King of not just the pasture but the two neighbors as well. Electric seems to have no effect on him (got that from his sire) and even at 6 weeks mom has given up. He spends more time out away from her being his own man than in being a baby. The daddy has tried to curb him and received a few sets of really obvious hoof prints in the process.

    Yep, it does make a lot of sense, for some reason I just never thought about it. I'd love to see some live Arabian racing!

    My only experience with Arabs is at (what I know realized was) a terrible lesson barn as a kid. They (which I now know) were backyard breeders who kept two tiny Arab studs cooped up in standing stalls almost all day everyday. As little girls, we used to try to sneak in to the "special barn" to see these mysterious stallions, but would get in tons of trouble if we got caught poking around.

    QTRBel I have no fear of a hot summer but the spirit of an arabian mare that is not ridden to burn off the excess can be daunting.
    Krystal can find anything to shy at when she is not excercised on a regular basis. She can spin , rear, buck and bolt all at the same time. Thankfully like most arabians she can't buck too hard. LOL Shalom

    Db - you are to be commended for riding and working your stallion. All too often one sees stallions languishing in a small area not allowed to participate and be horses.
