Donald from what I've seen of some ridden Arabians in the US show ring their idea of what good conformation is differs a lot from my European one
He looks a real sturdy type and that's going to surely breed a more useful all round type - very important with the rise and popularity of the sport horse and sport pony in this country
I am excited that he is arriving tomorrow.
I also think a few people here are also. Look for me to post here around 1-2 Texas time.
I have read about the controversy surrounding this stallion and He does not need joint supplements to the best of my knowledge.
I ahve even had a friend try and discourage me from accepting Sam.
She said his conformation was not good for a show horse. I replied he is a racehorse and a proven winner . If his conformation was faulty for the show ring then that is the reason I do not breed "show" horses. Shalom
Pretty sad that show horses have different conformation from usable horses...really. The show horse, ESPECIALLY the halter horse, should be the breed ideal.....
I like my friend but she thinks the only way to do things is her way.
The only feed that is good is the kind she buys.
She is a little too negative at times but has very good knowledge of arabian bloodlines.
Sam is coming and will remain intact as long as he is here.
He will be here in 1 hour and 30 minutes to 2 hours. Gotta go get Ziggy ready for his new home. Shalom
Sam stepped out of the trailer , promptly announced his arrival, and pranced around like a king.
The mares started getting all flirty, and Star announced that he WAS the reigning monarch. They have been talking to each other for a while. Then I think they remember there is a fresh bale of hay in each of their pens and that it is close to 100*.
He looks better than when I saw him and he is a very impressive stallion. I do need a chair under his chin to remind him that he is to listen to me. A quick tug on the lead rope and he settles down. Even in the presence of 7 willing brood mares. Shalom
Thanks KCtop. In order to stay in good standing with the members of this forum I might need to abuse your kindness and utilize your superpowers to post a couple of pictures.
I am going to call your Husband tomorrow and get some plans for the new pen for star and the new one now needed for Sam.
Horses cost money!!! I need to repeat this 1,000 times every day until it sinks in. Shalom
DBA, You never abuse my kindness when it comes to the horses. I can't wait to see him and was hoping you would ask so I could have an excuse:) We'll be out and about tomorrow then a playday starting at 5. And yes, they do cost money....alot of money. That's why I don't have a decent car to drive....it all goes to the kids and horses!
