Arabians I own 3 now and am getting more. They are intelligent and wonderful . I have a Connemeara cross arab as well.
witty rake [deleted] 11 years ago
i think mine must be draught crosses as they are reserved, clever with strong bone and substance. i think i just love them all!

I'm 15 and i spend my afternoons when i'm not doing homework (or on Flickr) tracing bloodlines and reading all about them! I love them! My dream is to breed an Australian Champion! I would love to do that!

I also want to try a large Arab stallion over a well build, yet small Clydie Mare. I've seen some crosses of Percherons x Arabs and other draughts x with arabs but i have only seen some nice ones. For some reason i feel that if i bred the right Stallion to the right mare i could get quite a nice horse! This idea was mainly inspired by an Australian Arab stallion, Royal Domino (who's deceased) Domino was a purebred arab but he had long feathers and a strong build. He was a lovely horse. I just imagine how beautiful a Clydesdale would look with a lovely dished face, big eyes and nostrils and a high tail would look!

The clydie x arab breeding would simply be an experiment. I much prefer pure arabs.

That sounds like a great idea. My sister is also going to have a horse breeding farm one day too. :)

I think that Arabians are cool too! :) Did you ever see the movie cald the "Black Stalion?" The horse in that was just beautiful! :)
louchiere79 11 years ago
Very beautiful:) Yes someday:) It just takes cash, and I'm working on that lol. There is a farm near here, that has a whole herd of arabians, I love there faces! They are so friendly and gentle too. The one I talk to all the time, named Charlean, just had a baby last spring, she is so beautiful! But I think they sold her baby. I love to watch them run together as a herd, it is so amazing and the ground just trembles. I love horses!
That sounds amazing! At my work there is about 20 something horses. But theres only an Anglo Arab and my favourite little Nelson who is 29 years old and is an Arabian pony crossed with something else! The rest are mainly STB's, and Stock Horse crosses and shetlands (theres only 2 of them) and some QH's!
OH and yes i did see the black stallion. He was nice but they say he's a "wild horse' like NO! They shouldn't say that cause any one who knows a little bit about horses could tell he's not wild. They should have used a nice looking mixed breed!

Arabian Horses!
louchiere79 11 years ago
Ya, Arabians are beautiful! I love their heads. They are very smart too, and friendly. Does anyone like Morgans?

American Quarter Horse and Appaloosa’s are my favorites. Though I also like the old line of Morgan's and Arab's are beautiful. There are two quotes that come to mind when asking me about horses..."A horse is a horse, or course of course!" and "A horse, a horse, my kingdome for a horse!" I would have a hard time to find a breed (or cross-bred) that I don't like!
louchiere79 11 years ago
Great quotes! I like "If wishes were horses beggars would ride" There is one about heaven and horses, but I can't remember it...
sezzaleerose 11 years ago
australian stock horses. i love them they are adorable and have the sweetest personality and they cant let you down (truly) lol and they get disapointed if you are and they are also very cheeky at times (yeah i own one) ummz i like paints and mustangs and brumbys too all those wild personality ones =P yeah but i love all horses but arabians i'm starting to grow out of them thanks to jess =P lol

I think all horses are beautiful. We have three different breeds: Quarter Horse mare, Mustang Paint mare and two Polish Arabians a gelding and a stallion. The stallion, Cassels Danzel, thinks he is a crown prince.

An Icelandic horse!!

They are the best, not too big, sweet and loving and they tölt!
- I've only once ridden a horse that wasn't icelandic, a dans varmblood... when it trotted I though I was going to fall off *lol*
eclecticescapades 11 years ago
I have worked with horses (in one way or another) for almost 10 years and I have to say my Canadian warmblood X is the most amazing horse I've come across. He is a Percheron/Thoroughbred X, 17.2 hh, chestnut without marking and the quietist, calmest sweetest boy ever :) But then again, I am TOTALLY biased! Does anyone else have a Canadian warmblood x? Almost no one knows what he is when they see him ;)
Sigga Dúllumús 11 years ago
My favorite breed is the Icelandic horse. I own 5 and they are so cute, with great personalities, 5 beautiful gaits including tölt, come in every color and are one of the purest breeds in the whole world, very strong and intelligent. ^_^ I've also been working on a horse rental here in Iceland and people just fall instantly in love with them!
Phantom Chick Posted 11 years ago. Edited by Phantom Chick (member) 11 years ago
MY favorite breeds are arabian and quarter horse. I have a herd of quarter horse and a couple arabs. Quarter horses because they are the most usefull and can be used for just about anything. Arabs because they have awesome personalities, and they are just beutiful to watch.
finicky roll [deleted] 11 years ago
Arabians & Half Arabs are my favorite but right now i own a no spot Appy filly. I love all horses and am happy just to have one of any breed.
meganslady_63 11 years ago
I have to say that I love all horses and all breeds but the one that has my heart is the Tennesse Walker, I own one now and he is the best horse I have ever owned. He is my best friend and I trust him with my life. He is 20 yrs old and still going strong.

Freisians. 100%. I would kill to own a gelding freisian. They are just so beautiful and elegant and have such an docile nature to them. When I was in highschool I took an equestrian science course and every project I did was based around the freisian and dressage.

That's hard, if you love horses, you just love them all. Sis raises Arabians so I love those. Grew up with an Appalosa and a Quarter Horse. My first horse I bought was an Appalosa/POA. My ride now is a Morgan. So, yes. I love ever one of them.

Spanish Mustangs (NOT BLM MUSTANGS) they helped create the Paint, Appaloosa, Quarter Horse, Blm Horse, Morgan, and more breeds. But the original is definitely the best. They can run 100 miles work all day without being shod and do it again the next day without getting tired.

Paints, Quarter Horses, Appys, Percherons, Andalusians, Luistanos....... Yea, it's hard to pick just one! Lol! Over all the Paint Horse. I love all horse breeds, although I don't too much care for hot bloods or gaited horses. Still pretty though. :)

Oh, forgot one, lol! My dream horse would hafta be a Friesian. I've wanted one since the first time I saw one. They just aint quite in my budget. Lol!

I love heavy horses especially cobs, but I have to agree with 'Addicted to Paints Friesians are so beautiful
EnigmaG204 9 years ago
I really have to say Dutch Warmbloods. I dunno why but I feel more secure sitting on a big and solid back. I don't have one of my own but my dad's friend owns a beautiful dutch stallion called Calisto Z so I ride him a lot. Most of the times, I still ride thoroughbreds so they definitely come next.

They came with the Spanish and were prized as the best horses available at that time. They were war horses, bull fighters and they survived the travel across seas. They imported Jennets, Barbs, the early proto-Andalusian, and Sorraia to form a new horse, they were the working horse of the Vaquero (before the term 'cowboy' existed), the horse of the elite in New Spain. Native Americans captured these horses and raised them into buffalo runners, war ponies, and they gained phenomenal endurance. What the native americans had was a superior horse and the military knew only one way to stop them, kill the horses. They were used by early settlers for the pony express and for cow ponies, but they fell out of fashion because of their small size. Wild herds were polluted with the blood of draft breeds, thoroughbreds, or whatever escaped. Today there are maybe 3000 left 100-300 breeding mares. These horses are intelligent and have a different mind-set than 'modern' breeds. They are extremely versatile excelling in dressage, jumping, endurance, reining, cattle drives and more...

My Spanish HorseLook at that Iberian profile!025Rain Dancer

They go by many names...The Colonial Spanish Horse, The Spanish Barb, The Spanish Mustang (which unfortunately turns many people away because they think of wild BLM horses), and Indian Pony to name a few.

There are many registries splintered all trying to preserve the same horse but excluding some because of prejudice. The most open regidtry sometimes called the 'umbrella group' is Horse of the Americas
I'm not big on riding horses because of a riding accident I had a few years back, but I love to observe horses and take care of them which is why my dream is to one day breed Miniature Horses. They are just like full-sized horses only small and you don't have to ride them.
