I READ THIS: Arabians are the oldest purebred horses in the world, and no other horse has had such a great influence on so many other breeds. Posted at : http://www.vorts.com/arabian_horses

Yes the Arabian was bred to be a keen member of the family forsaking the comfort of the wife and daughters. They were less likely to be stolen. Killed perhaps because the more the lord of the tribe had the more that could be taken.The mare was favored for 2 reasons no 3 she was swift, thus proven able to be bred to the right sire, for a filly foal in hopes of carring her lines through,and able to withstand a sneak attack, less likely to give away her owners presance as apposed to a stallion,there not reliable. The difference we see in todays arabians is this the desert peoples bred by strain (family ties) to keep the blood and lines pure. Today even in america we breed all lines togeather so no one line is kept pure.The arabian is beautiful and always will remain so.However we have lost something special from this horse a sortof indefferance to humans.there kept out in a barn instead of in a tent. some reconized this such as Tom Chuncy who kept his favorite stallion up next to hs home so he could look out into his stallions stall. I understand it was into his bedroom.There were probley others.The closer to the desert the better the chance of the intutiveness of the horse. Now many generations later in america as times of change brought us away from the nessery need of the horse these animals are bred for show,and bred with the show ring in mind.The heated stalls and barns to the coldness of training to the $$ signs they sell for. I had one prominate breeder after observing his highly touted stallion's get saying he wasn't good enfough. To seeing that same Animal go on to Scottsdale and National Champions and Resv.Chanpionchip, So yes some are very friendly made that way by the owners careful handling. to the very aloof show animal who will run you over,or kick you in passing. The nature of the arabian who is balanced is one where a stallion will rode by a child will obey that child. and are rode in the arena today that way. Still the Arabian is one breed I truly respect and admire after a lifetime with different strains and attiudes.Allways my #1 breed! Cindy

How nice. I also have mini's and they are totally awesome! Such power in such a small package. The thing is I am a life time lover of the Arabian and will never go without totally. I think if you owned one or were owned by one we all have such special stories of one in our lives. Such personality. I too have had heart stories with some!! I think that the Arabian really helps to improve anything they are bred to or in their history! The mini has a special group of mini's who really look Arabian. Mine don't, they are just way to neat to worry about anything. Thanks Cindy, loved your comments!!!
