One of my two favourite Arabian horse colours - The Black. My other favourite is the Dark Bay Arabian. As for favourite horses in general, I love Paint Horses too, but the Draft Horses are my absolute favourites - with the Clydesdale and Belgians having a special place in my heart.
Arabian stallion, w a Mandate. Accomplishments: Mandate’s bloodlines include the Greats of Arabian breeding. His significant sire line comes from National Champion Ali Jamaal who sired multiple national champions. His dominant dam line comes from the great foundation mare TW Forteyna who has produced multiple national champions.
A Purebred Arabian will always fit the bill of a stylish and showy mount, however they also have so much more to offer. (For Instance: Where do you think the American Quarter Horse and Thoroughbreds got their speed?)
