I needed to laugh so I decided to look through Lacey's dad's pedigree and see if there are any seriously funny looking horses that went into my poneh. He did not disappoint.

First off there's "Bad," a 1929 mare. First off, her name is super funny but then when you look at her picture, prepare to laugh out loud.
I couldn't find the picture to link to so here's her page. Scroll over the little picture thingy up by her name to see the picture.

Bad Arabian

Then there's "Elegantka", a 1923 mare. She's not horrible deformed or anything, I just laughed when I saw her picture after reading her name. I was expecting something pretty lady-like but she's not so much.



And then, my all time funny looking favorite: Matih, a 1922 mare. Do you think she could be any more awkward looking? Evidently she's a pretty typical "Muniqui" arabian. I guess the desert people who bred that type of Arabs were going solely for speed and had to leave beauty by the wayside or some such thing (here's the link, in case you're interested: Arab Families (1950) )




This guy was less funny looking and more just random: Bazleyd, a 1928 stallion. He was doubled registered as a TWH because he was evidently gaited. WHAT?? Haha That was one of the funnier things I've ever heard. Here's a link to his page, I guess that picture is of him gaiting. Who knew? Haha

Bazleyd Arabian

Good times. Very good times.

Does anyone else's horse have some funny skeletons in their closet? Feel free to post lots of funny pictures. The funnier the better.

Oh my goodness, this killed me! Whoever named "Bad Arabian" was pretty clever, because he looks more like a TB! I would take great pride in such a unique pedigree. Honestly, there's nothing quite like it :)

Front end of a Thoroughbred, back end of an arabian, and I'm not sure what's happening in between...

This one looks like a warmblood...

EEK! I can't believe there are so many!! Oh well. I take solice in the fact that they are all pretty far back there. Could you imagin if one of the owners of these horses came on to the forum asking for breeding advice? I don't think that any of these horses should have been bred, but I am darn glad that they were or I wouldn't have the horses I love right now...no matter how fugly their ancestors were. :D

CloudsMystique, how did you get the pictures off the website? Whenever I try to save them, I just save a picture of the little square that LINKS to the picture.

wow. its so funny how they drew horses back "then". Though, mystique, the first drawing you posted looks pretty good. shows detail, like sway back and a thick throatlatch. better than the second! :) lol
BTW, in that second pic, either the horse is HUGE or that guy is short! holly cow!

Roro, to save pics I just print screen key the page and crop it in paint, then save it like that.

Another way to save pics from allbreedpedigree is to right click on the name for the horse you want, choose "edit information" from the menu that comes up, and then when the edit screen comes up, copy and paste the URL for the image into the browser, and right click on and save the file from that image URL. :D

I sifted through mine and found a few strange ones:
Gigantic TB!

A classic Frankenhorse.

Grand-sire with a hind end in a different dimension from the front!

Saved the best for last:
A real beauty, right?
