Eight months of winter? Is that possible?
What are you an eskimo. Now I really must insist you send those Desert bred horses down here and start raising icelandics. Shalom

A whole lot of my ancestors emigrated to Alberta from the mid 1800's up to the late 1950's. They tried to persuade my dad to join them and he visited many times but he & Mum were put off by the long winters

Sam is now booked to his first outside mare for 2014!
She is also a race winner and has produced some nice foals by a couple of stallions related to him.
She has crossed well with a few of Samtyr's grandsons. I cant wait to see what she can do with a son of his. Shalom

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

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

Thanks Missy May Lone Star Dancer's sire is also a very nice horse.
Both Sam and Star are not Main Ring Quality Halter horses but they are athletic and built solid.
Even though Star is 17 I would bet the farm he could out last any of the Top 10 Arabian halter stallions in the world in an endurance race.
Sam probably could if he did not have an injury on his left rear leg.
That is the kind of arabian I am interested in breeding.
Not a Western Pleasure, or halter champion. Those I have no use for.

Db, I was only half-joking about the endurance prospect thing. You and one other breeder are on my short list when I go looking for an gelding here in a couple of years, both of you for the very reason you stated in your last post- your goal seems to be to breed horses with good solid health, heart and hooves. I have the utmost respect for that.

I will surely have a prospect or two for sale by then Sharpie.
Thanks for the encouraging words.
Some Arabian people have told me I am wasting my time and breeding junk.
I just tell them its not their breeding program and to look elsewhere.
I like a pretty horse but I want one that can do something.
If an arabian cannot be ridden for 20-25 miles at a time with some good conditioning then the breed standard has not been met. Shalom
