    You may know that i have been guessing at Rubys breeding since i had her.

    I have talked to loads of people and the most common suggestion was that she has some arab in her.

    Well with no way of proving it i have just been hopeful and pleased that there may be some beautiful arab in my girl.

    However today i had a new farrier come to shoe her and the conversation was as follows..

    farrier - 'what breed is she?'
    me - 'I dont really know to be honest'
    farrier - 'There is some arab in there for sure.'
    me - ' Really!? We did think that'
    farrier - 'Well she has typical arab feet.'


    That's good enough for me, lol :D:D

    Just wish i really knew what her breeding was, would be so interesting to find out.

    Typical Arab feet = farrier tools blunted quicker!

    How far back can you trace her past owners? What is she like at a trot? She's certainly very bonny. I am also admiring your field fencing :D

    I know she was imorted from belgium, but i dont know who by and when. Previous owner i can trace didnt know either!

    She does have very elevated flashy paces and a really lovely walk that always tracks up.

    The farrier has said in two more pairs of shoes she can go barefoot as her feet are that good.

    As for fencing - all our fields have full post and rail with electric fencing and metal gates. We have a new horse here who is a windsucker and he broke the fence, within the hour the carpenter was out fixing it! That's why i like this yard, lovely safe fencing.:D
