Does he have Raffles in the Arabian side of his breeding? He's gorgeous. :)
Colourize-Stock Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2012
I think I know who his sire is, and there's no Raffles there are far as I can tell:)
iDeutsch Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012  Student General Artist
Aw, he looks like a Raffles baby. xD Who's his sire?
Colourize-Stock Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012
Are we thinking of the same Raffles? The one born in 1966 (-ish)? Hehe, if it's hin we both mean, then it should be quite difficult to tell the relatives of his that are still living today apart concidering how many generations that have passed since then:P They probably look a lot different:P
I believe that this would be his sire: [link] The lists are now removed from the website that held the endurance ride that this guy did a short ride under, so I can't confirm that it's correct. But I believe that it was the sire anyway:P
iDeutsch Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012  Student General Artist
No, this Raffles was born in 1926. He died in 1953. It lists the birthdates of the horses in the pedigree of your horse, but none of the names match his.
Raffles was a foundation Arabian horse. Very important to pedigrees.

Colourize-Stock Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2012
Oh, sorry, my bad! I was supposed to write 1926, but my fingers seem to have had a different oppinion... :XD:
But I was thinking of the same horse as you anyway, I just managed to slip on the keyboard...:P

Imo, the foundation horses have very little influence on a horse today. What's far more important is the names you find during the past 1-4 generations. A horse in the 7th generation and above will have very little influence on the horse since it got so very little genetic material from that particular individual living 8 generations before, so I personally don't spend that much time looking at the foundation horses:) Looking at the old ones and the foundation horses is interesting - especially from a historical point of view when looking at breeding programs - but doesn't say much about the horse that's living today.
iDeutsch Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2012  Student General Artist
Haha, then we're on the same page! I prefer to blame the keyboard for being so darn slippery. :D

I beg to disagree. Without the Foundation horses, the entire pedigree couldn't be created. Certain features that the specific horse had to offer wouldn't have been bred down. It depends, really, on the strain of the horse (I breed Arabians) and the barn that it was bred from.
For example, if Bay el Bey (or any horse like him) hadn't been a foundation horse, some of my horses would look no where near as they do. Certain features wouldn't have been bred down. Of course I'd still love and treasure them, but the certain spark he passed down wouldn't be present. Just my view on things. The more recent generations are important, but if you ask a proffesional breeder, most of them can recite the pedigree and foundation horses. It all plays in.
Colourize-Stock Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2012
Oh, I completly agree with that it's very important to look at what they were created from since those horses are the ones who brought in the genetic material to begin with. Of course the foundation horses vere important, so I appologice if I made it sound like they weren't. I know a few proffessional breeders as well, so I definitely see your point.

But what I mean is that it's very easy to change a lot in horses in very few generations. I see that a lot in todays breeding as well, where it tend to go to the extreme, in different directions. Strictly racing-bred arabians can look very different that others, yet when you look at the pedigree you see a most names in common with my mainly show-bred gelding as recently as 6-8th generation. Yet there's a very clear difference between the looks and traits in general, which happened by breeding on the more "extreme" individuals. Same thing goes for show bred horses as well as entierly endurance bred horses. Go back 7-8 generation and most names are basically the same (in a lot of cases), but the horses bred today can look very different. So what I mean is of course not that the foundation horses aren't important, but to actually know what the horse can inherit and its own qualities, I would rather look at the more modern generations. If I were to pick a stallion to create an elite racing horse, I would pick the stallion that is bred for generations for that purpose, has the comformation and the gaits to do it and has produced offspring who are successfull at it. He may on the other hand have pretty much the same foundation horses in common with a show ring champion, but they both look very different and inherit very different traits. Just because they share a lot of names in the pedigree lots of generations back, they can be so differently bred that they are each others opposites.
I also meet plenty of people within the arabian world who claim that their horses are great, since they got "Horse X" as a great great grandsire, or this or that horse can be found 5 generations back. To me that's not really something that I find impressive, as that particular horse 5 generations back has a tiiiiiny percent of genetic material represented in the adverticed horse. you need to take a look at the entire pedigree to get a good picture of the genetic material avalible, as one horse 4 generations back is just a little more that 6% of the entire genetic material in that generation. To advertice a horse based on titles claimed by a horse 5 or 6 generations back is something that I've basically only seen in such a large degree within the arabian world, at least in the breeds that we have around here that I can compare with.

So just to make it clear, I of course do not mean that foundation horses doesn't matter - but a lot of things can change in a very short time by selective breeding, and I do think that people at times pay too much attention to titels and achievements made a long time ago by the horses quite a few generations back did, rather than looking at what the horses today have done. As an endurance rider I see that a lot - people seeling their young horses as "future endurance- or racing stars". Then you look at the pedigree and realize that it's made up of mediocre show horses, and if you are lucky one or two horses that actually did something worth of a real title. Nothing that could indicate that it'd be a good endurance horse in the pedigree other than perhaps a stallion a few generations back that could also be found in some famous endurance- or racing horses' pedigree.
That's why I mean that I prefer to look at the more recent generations rather than foundation lines and strains - not that it doesn't matter, but by looking at generation 1-5 you get more information about the horse than looking at generation 5-10.

Sorry if I express myself badly, but since English isn't my native tounge and I rarely use it I tend to pick the wrong words - not to mention the horrible grammar that follows... -_-'

I used to ride a fleabitten grey tobiano warmblood gelding in my equitation classes at college. He was a bit older so his grey was more faded into white. But you could still see the outline of the pink patches on his skin next to the grey patches. A fellow rider thought that he had a disease until I explained his color to her, lol! He was a fantastic jumper and I miss him. This horse reminds me of him. :)
