I just want to memorialise this guy, who produced a whopping 8 foals during a period where I became very strict about the foals I keep.

Furthermore, since I've been focusing on breeding horses to the arabian standard, I've been surprised to see how my horses have changed stat wise. Somehow movement and tempo have become some of their better stats (conformation wise). :shock:

All in all, faces are 3/4 of the way there and I've been taking neck length into account recently. There's stilla little improvement needed in jowl thickness, but I've been seeing quite a few ideal-headed foals recently.

Body conformation wise, short backs are becoming common, which I feel have greatly improved the look of my horses. I'm slowly increasing depth of flank to aid stamina and further improve the look of the horses and there's still a bit of variation in croup, although I've bred quite a few with nicely balanced ones.

I'm considering doing a side by siide comparison of my arabs vs. adoptions centre arabs in order to see how far I've come.

And oh yeah, my farm had its 100th anniversary

I've got a whole bunch of horses with good heads now, and the numbers with gold intelligence and green stamina are increasing steadily. I intend to focus on endurance when I have decent horses and maybe some of the western disciplines. I'm kind of torn though.

Right now I'm just hoping for a 43 GP foal.

But I'm excited to get to a stage where my horses are good enough to sell and stud. I'll probably join the ABA then :D and look forward to working with other Arabian breeders and probably those who'd like to improve the looks of some other breeds.

My first 43 GP Stallion. Quite a few more unrelated 43's have started to crop up after him.

Meet my first 45 GP keeper foal. Mostly because of his depth of flank, which is the highest I've bred so far. Its finally begun giving me stamina, which is why I think this guy has as high GP as he has.

46 GP Stallion. Fairly decent conformation wise. I really need to focus on getting nice, thick jowl on my arabians.
