As I know very little about the Arabian breed, I would have to say The Horse Forum's very own Spirit Thyme. as he is simply stunning horse. However I would like to learn more about the Arabian Breed. Anybody care to share theirs?

;;edit;; sorry I misspelled Favorite!

Well one of my all time favorites is Khemosabi. He's a very pretty guy and from what everyone's told me, a very calm even tempered horse that got along with everyone. I've seen pictures at the barn where he stood at stud for the last years of his life, with little kids sitting on him. I also really like Alada Baskin I, who is my horses sire. He's also very nice looking, and from what I've heard has a great personality as well. Since I got my mare, I've been trying to learn more about the pros and cons of the different lines, and what it all means, as I definitely want to breed my mare down the road.

Following that vein, my absolute favorite Arabian stud right now is Khartoon Khlassic who is a son of Khemosabi. He's a sabino, so the color is a fantastic bonus, but even without it he's my favorite. He's thick and athletic and built more like a small Quarter Horse then a big dainty giraffe, much more resembling the foundation Arabians years ago I think. And he's a proven producer of outstanding performance horses, so there just isn't anything that tops him for me right now.

My fave is a stallion who was bred in Australia. His name was Nile, he was out of a Hadban Enzahi daughter, who was also an Aswan grandaughter. As you can probably guess, I love love love Nazeer bred Egyptians lol.

Unfortunately Spirit Thyme did not make top ten at nationals, but he's a cute boy! :)

I got to meet some upcoming stallions in person at nationals, so here's my list :)

This is KM Bugatti, GORGEOUS hunter. He's a sweet guy in person, though not as tall as you'd expect.


His sire is Versace, one that I've been in love with for forever! He sired many top sires, but he has passed away :(


Just Joe, A son of Versace, who is not very well-known YET, but I saw him at nationals and fell in love. He went top ten, should have gotten reserve IMO. Don't have a photo :(

ENZO!! Love this boy. Love the foals, love love love! His head is the best I've ever seen IMO. It's so wide and lovely, and it is definitely a signature he passes to his foals. Padrons Psyche x Bey Shah mare. He's gorgeous as a hunter as well.


My favorite Enzo son is Eden C, who just won junior stallions at nationals: (note the perfect ears...)


I DO like Pikhasso as a hunter, I wasn't a fan until he was about 3 though, he looked to Qh-ish until then. I'm still iffy about pinto arabs, but he is a nice boy :)


I have to post EKS Bey Al Gazal (who should have won senior stallions!!! instead of reserve hehe). I have him on my wall, actually :)


Oh! And my favorite sport stallion is SH Redemption! I'm seriously thinking about using him as a future sire... him & Bugatti.


Hm, I believe that's all. Not overboard at all, it's so hard to choose!!

The barn I was helping out at has a very nice stud named WH Alimanor, he is out of Aastoria by Emanor. Emanor kin are very wanted around my area. Alimanor himself has sired some beautiful foals, none proven since this year was his first year with foals on the ground. He has a pretty accomplished show record as well.






  • 2005 SWAA STALLION HALTER- CHAMPION
  • 2005 PACIFIC RIM STALLION HALTER-CHAMPION
  • 2006 HERITAGE COUNTRY JUNIOR HORSE-CHAMPION
  • 2006 RALLY IN THE VALLEY COUNTRY JUNOIR HORSE-CHAMPION
  • 2006 SPRING DAFFODIL COUNTRY OPEN JUNIOR HORSE-RESERVE
  • 2006 SUMMER DAFFODIL COUNTRY OPEN-RESERVE
  • 2007 SPRING DAFFODIL ENGLISH PLEASURE OPEN-RESERVE
  • 2007 REGION V ENGLISH OPEN -RESERVE
But other than that I really like Khemosabi, Klassic Kartoon and Magnum Psyche.

At the same place I ride there is a Magnum Psyche mare and she is the dam of one of Alimanor's foals, a very nice looking filly that just won her first weanling halter show bringing in 100 dollars.

I love me some Ferzon. Very influential stallion.


Ferzon to the left, Gai Parada to the right.


But if I were looking at studs to breed to now, it would definitely be this guy:
FC Casino Royale




Some of his get:
Flash Pointt

Gold N Dove

Rio


Ask me last year if I would have chosen to breed to a stallion that consistently throws chestnut foals and I would have laughed at you, but I really like him. Wish I could find a confo shot of him without the tack though.

the arabian breeding barn i worked at had a granddaughter of Khemosabi her name was Khamia Khoket she was black and used for dressage...beautiful temperment. Khamiah Khoket KF | Arabian Broodmare of Khafra Arabians in B.C., Canada and my favourite stallion was just a weanling when i started there and had quite the fun personality and grew into a beautiful stud but has passed away i believe last year...not sure what happened as i have not worked there for a while but he was extremely young.his name was bravo bay KFR Bravo Bay | Arabian Horse For Sale @ Khafra Arabians in B.C., Canada

Isn't it cool how we all love a specific breed, but all love different representations of that breed? Arabians rock my world :)

I'm not a fan of the english pleasure type horses, but I can't help but admire the Baske Afire, Afire Bey V, Huckleberry Bey, etc. horses :)

Ok, my turn :)
I have far too many stallions to post for my "favorites" so I'll do stallions I have chose to breed to.

Next year my multi-champion Saddleseat mare will be going to Khartoon Khlassic


This year I got an exceptional colt from the multi-champion Straight Egyptian, AK stallion El Norus.



Another favorite of mine who I planned on breeding to and have passed onto my friend, Multi-Champion stallion GF Omega

I think that's more because blacks are thrown right into a breeding program based on color alone, so they rarely see the show ring.
My bay mare Nadira is sired by a very nice Black Arabian. He is a race and endurance winner. Unfortunately, a pasture accident kept him from becomming a "big" name.



And here is my filly, pictured below at a year old.
She is a *Simeon Shai and Nykoli+ grand-daughter. Not sure if she'll hit the show ring or not, her partnered owner would like to use her for a pleasure horse (trails).



2 years old


Have to get decent photos of her in the spring. She's a BIG filly pushing 15.1 barefoot and I'm not measuring with the "Arabian stick" as I do not care about height being only 5'5. She has a lovely, classic head as well that her super thick and long forelock likes to hid. :sigh:

My two top favs have already been mentioned -- Khemosabi and Khartoon Khlassic.

I can attest to the exceptional temperament of Khemo horses as I own a grandson of his myself.

Always been a fan of Barich de Washoe.
