    [RC] The Arabian Breed - goearth

    Hello Campers,  from my little book, the Observers Book of Horses and Ponies which was printed in the UK and given to me by Felicity Anne Russell (FAR) the granddaughter of Bertrand i read that ..."Of all the horse breeds of the world, the Arab is not only the oldest and the most beautiful, but has had more influence on other breeds than any, which is the surest tribute to its excellance. The breeds outstanding features are: a small horse-the stallions standing 14'2-15 hands, with mares slightly smaller-of extremely graceful carriage and beautifully refined head,with tail carried high and gaily;  a horse of arresting and picturesque appearance, indeed, the very picture horse of all the equine race."  So since i was for a time a breeder of them and had more problems w/ vaginas than sheaths i would say that the modern day philosophy of "Bigger is Better" does not align itself with the thinking and reasoning of the original intent of those that bred them for 5,000 years.  tom sites
