Seen some good Arab cow horses over the years-they are alot smoother to ride on a long day. Some friends in Newcastle, Wyoming have about 50 arab/tb crosses in their remuda. They don't have the natural ability a quarter horse does though.

After he asked about Arabian horses, he then mentioned Arabian STALLIONS.

Everyone knows they have a lot of stamina...but you don't see many using them for ranch horses.

I'm not gonna get in a debate with you AG,because you can't do it without calling me a name. You have your opinion, I have mine.

Have a good night.

I run 2 studs! You??


We just run one now. I remember when we had up to three for a while and 2 for quite awhile. They can be a pain if you don't have the room and the fences to handle them. We have run QH studs since the early 60's.
We never worked a stud on the ranch but some of them have been broke to ride and one calf roped off of before we bought him.

What breed do you run?

i guess riding an arab is alright....i think it is one of those things that you don't want your friends or neighbors to see you doing it. :wink:
i have never rode an arab and never will.
you can't fix stupid.

If your looking to have an arab stub as a cow horse...not sure how well that will work.
As for a gelding or mare they would be good. If you want a floating ride you cant get any better.
Since I am not a cowgirl I will admit I have and would again ride an arab.

I'd never have any interest in one. With that dished-out face and tail wanting to poke up all the time, I have little desire. They seem to be pretty frail for doing much roping of critters. But heck Whitewing, down there in Venezuela I don't know that the neighbors seeing you ride one would cause much of a stir. If you rode one around this country you'd better be thick enough skinned to take some verbal abuse :!:

My buddy went to an Arab outfit by NewTown, North Dakota tp pick up a stud one time-he had some stouter mares. I roped a two year old Hereford bull of one of my buddies geldings he handled it ok. I used to use his Arab stud like a longhorn bull for my draft mares first foals-raised some pretty fancy teams off that cross. A little dab in a horse wouldn't hurt much and I doubt the neighbors would know-I get enough grief cause I ride mares lol. Alot of saddle horses up here have a bit of draft in them-those muskegs eat up horses pretty quick.
