    Oh, if I was only younger, richer and shorter! But mainly, younger and richer.

    Love him. Look at the elbow and forearm, that's really nice muscling.
    Overall he is in fantastic shape, perfect age too.

    Amazing the difference between a race bred arab and a halter bred arab. He is cute!

    Wow, he is really nice. I don't know anything about Arab conformation, but he just has a nice balanced look to him. I second Louise, wish I was younger.

    I love love love that y'all are placing OTTAs on Canter instead of just TBs. But please, please PLEASE list them properly! This horse is not "Answer to Prayer" he is Annswer to Prayer. It makes a HUGE difference in Arabian circles as we are allowed to name similar names, similarly spelled names, and similar sounding names-not like TJC which prohibits such.

    This makes it very difficult to look up results, records, pedigree etc.

    That said, this horse has a pretty good record and a nice pedigree. $95,452 earnings, 62 lifetime starts, 10 wins, 12 seconds, 12 thirds, etc. He's by a Dormane son out of a ZT Ali Baba+/ daughter with a good damline too. Should be a super endurance horse.

    Thanks

    Michael: Nah, it's more of a "we'll kill you if you don't do it" type of thing.
    Sam: Oh. I've never liked those.

    Is there a site to look up this info for the Arabians? I would be happy to put more info in our listings. His trainer didn't spell the name so we had no clue

    Yes. My Arab is racing lines and has the exactly the same head profile, with slight pout and slight overbite. But this guys body conformation is better than my guy's. Aanswer is very balanced looking overall to me.

    Oh and JLee thank you for all you do <3

    yep, Arabdatasource.com. It's the official registry site. I've got a membership as do many of the other Arab peeps on COTH and I'm happy to look them up for you, just send a PM.

    I'd just make it a habit to ask the trainer for the spelling of the name, tattoo number, or pedigree info (basic stuff like sire/dam or even just sire helps-I can search for a horse based off of just a few details-for instance all bay geldings with names that contain "Star" born between 1998 and 2002 owned by people in Alberta, Canada etc etc etc)

    As an AHA member, ask them to give CANTER a free subscription to the datasource and we'll work to list arabs correctly They've been unwilling for us in Colorado....

    Thoroughbreds and racing QHs are very easy to identify via free resources online. There is nothing like that for Arabs. It's a total crap shoot to find racing arabs in equibase. And trainers often have no idea when asked about spelling a difficult name...

    AHA has a very limited free look up that would at least accomplish the correct spelling. It can be found here:

    Why are all the cuties 3000 miles away? I'd take him tomorrow if he were closer!

    I called twice and Maureen never called me back. Maybe he sold and they just didn't delete his ad.

    This guy is posted again! Someone needs to buy him. I wanted him last year, but am no longer in a position for another horse.

    He is a handsome devil.
    Wonder what his registered name actually is, because the one listed isn't on Datasource.
    Could be some weird spelling variant.
