Transcript of Arabian Horse

Arabian horses The Arabian horse originated from the
Arabian peninsula in the Middle East. This is a desert climate. The Arabian breed is one of the oldest breeds of horses and one of the only breeds to stay purebred. These horses were spread through out the world by war and trade. They were prized by the nomadic Beouin people. Origin: Color Patterns The Arabian Horse Association registers purebred Arabians with bay, gray, chestnut, and black. The most common colors are bay, gray, and chestnut; with black being the less common color. Only true roans only exist in Arabians roaming in the Arab. All Arabian horses have black skin with white markings on the belly. The black skin provides protection from the sun in the hot desert. There are very little Arabians that are roan, and the 'white' is actually a gray color. Arabian's usually have a thin coat and rarely there is hair around the muzzle and eyes. Conformation Arabians have small refined heads; with large widespread eyes, a small muzzle, and a wide jaw. These hosres are unique in that they have a dished head profile. They have long and arched necks, with sloping shoulders. Thier legs are muscular, and straight boned with long, sloping pasterns, and very proportionate feet. The standard height for Arabians are 14.1 to 15.1 hands. HIstory Arabians have been around since 2000 to 5000 years ago. Mainly being used as war horses. Though, they were also used as race horses by the Bedouin. The winner would recieve the loser's best horses. It was a great honor to win recieve a mare as a gift as thy were so valuable. Uses Today Today the Arabian is uesd for the most part as a show horse.It is one of the most famous horses in the world today, and dominates the discipline of edurance riding. Feed Legums such as alfalfa and clover
Grasses in hay of pellet form
Salt and minerals as supplements
Grains Disorders Lavender Foal Syndrome (LFS), also called Coat Colour Dilution Lethal (CCDL).Lavender foals are characterized by an unique coat colour and neurological dysfunction which leaves them unable to stand. Because LFS is relatively rare, there is little in the veterinary literature about it.
Cerebellar Abiotrophy (CA) also referred to as cerebellar cortical abiotrophy (CCA), is a neurological disease found in Arabians and some other breeds, which affects the neurons known as Purkinje cells in the cerebellum of the brain, causing them to die off. Put simply, without Purkinje cells, an animal loses its sense of space and distance, making balance and coordination difficult.
Occipital Atlanto-Axial Malformation (OAAM). This is a condition where the cervical vertebrae fuse together in the neck and at the base of the skull, compressing the spinal cord.
Severe Combined Immunodeficiency Disorder (SCID). Several forms of SCID occur in mammals, including humans (“bubble baby syndrome”). They are not all the same, different genes and different modes of inheritance have been found in different species. Breeding Arabian horses are bred like most horses. Natural with a male and female and through artificial insemination. brittney
