I would be doing nothing new.
Other than satisfying my own heart, these horses were already generously represented in the community. Why produce more horses, when so many unwanted horses are still desperately in need of a loving home?
"OurWhen breeders experience monetary success, other enthusiasts will try and emulate this success with whatever kind of horse they are able to get their hands on, never considering if what they are trying to do, is in the best interest of their horse.

"If Mr. So and So sold his new foal for $250,000, I should be able to get at least that much for my foal, as this horse's grandsire's brother was a half-sibling to my foal's sire!"Money usually pollutes all practical thought and pushes aside any moral responsibility that we should be feeling, when we bring new life into this world.As a community, we need to embrace and finally understand that not every horse deserves to be bred, regardless of how special this horse may be to us. Really, only a very small number of horses are superior, truly excellent, with the genetic strength to reproduce equal to or better than their level of quality. The rest should be enjoyed and loved for the individual they are; not for their ability to produce a $500 Craigslist advertised horse. We have way too many of those horses already.
I pray for the day when people will realize that there are other things to do with Arabian Horses than to breed them and create more Arabian Horses! Whether you are on his back or standing by his side, a relationship with an Arabian Horse will be your adventure of a lifetime!
