Introduction: Unparalleled beauty, a rich history and a unique ability to bond with
From the ancient deserts of the Middle East evolved the oldest known breed of riding
horse, the Arabian. Now one of the most popular breeds in America, the Arabians'
incredible energy, intelligence and gentle disposition allow riders to excel in most
equine sports and activities. Today, Arabian horses spend as much time on the trail
as they do at horse shows and other competitive events.
For thousands of years, Arabians lived among the desert tribes of the Arabian peninsula,
bred by the Bedouins as war mounts for long treks and quick forays into enemy camps.
In these harsh desert conditions evolved the Arabian with its large lung capacity
and incredible endurance.
Historical figures like Genghis Khan, Napoleon, Alexander The Great and George Washington
rode Arabians. Even today, one finds descendants from the earliest Arabian horses
of antiquity. Then, a man's wealth was measured in his holdings of these fine animals.
Given that the Arabian was the original source of quality and speed, and remains
foremost in the fields of endurance and soundness, he still either directly or indirectly
contributed to the formation of virtually all the modern breeds of horses.
The prophet Mohammed, in the seventh century AD, was instrumental in spreading the
Arabian's influence around the world. He instructed his followers to look after Arabians
and treat them with kindness. He instructed that special attentions should be paid
to the mares because they insure the continuity of the breed. He also proclaimed
that Allah had created the Arabian, and that those who treated the horse well would
be rewarded in the afterlife.
The severe climate required the nomads to share food and water, and sometimes even
their tents with their horses. As a result, Arabians developed a close affinity to
man and a high intelligence.
Over the centuries, the Bedouin tribes zealously maintained the purity of the breed.
Because of their limited resources, breeding practices were extremely selective.
Such practices, which eventually helped the Arabian become a prized possession throughout
the world, have led to the beautiful athletic breed we know today, which is marked
by a distinctive dished profile; large, lustrous, wide-set eyes on a broad forehead;
small, curved ears; and large, efficient nostrils.
Even today the purebred Arabian is virtually the same as that ridden in ancient Arabia.
Arabians now display their athletic talents in a variety of disciplines from English
to Western, with the Arabian positioned as the undisputed champion of endurance events.
If you're looking for a companion who'll be your partner in adventure or competition-and
your friend for life-then an Arabian may be the horse for you.
The life expectancy of a Zebra Finch is highly variable because of genetic and environmental
factors. The Zebra Finch may reach up to five years in its natural environment. If
they are kept caged, they normally live for 5 to 7 years; if they are well looked
after and happy, they may live up to 12 years, with the exceptional case of 14.5
years reported for a caged specimen. The greatest threats to the survival of the
species are predation by cats and loss of natural food.
