Another one of those conversations

As a quick background, I recently moved my horse (yay) and he's doing great at the new place. He has made quick besties with his QH gelding pasture mate and the people there really like him (at least the 2 people I've spoken to there - 1 being the BO) and he's been well-behaved. He's, once again, the only Arabian at the barn. So, I get the odd/funny comments that any Arabian owner gets when surrounded by non-Arabian owners.

I was out yesterday evening and had just finished working my horse and he did great in the outdoor arena. It was his first going in that arena and there were "ladies" for him to view in the adjacent pastures while we worked. Despite being easily distracted, he worked great for me and we only had a 10-15 minute session for that reason. I turned to take him back in and the only boarder I've actually met was standing outside of the arena watching. She was going to bring in one of the mares who goes through the outdoor arena to get to her stall. We started talking and boy does this woman like to talk! In the course of the conversation, she tells me how well-behaved he is for her when she brings him in in the evening, how sweet he is when she pets him through the open "feeding" door on his stall, etc. Then she says how she rode sometimes Arabian once or twice and how she was surprised by how nice the horse was and how she'd always thought were pretty. Then, she goes on to tell me the house was half QH and got the best of both worlds with the Arabian refinement and that sweet QH personality. I smiled and nodded as my young Arabian was sniffing the ground, watching the mares, just chilling. I love those conversations. "I rode an Arabian once..."
