Well i'd call that official now - Arab

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

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

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.
