Dished Faced Arabian Horse – Does This Look Normal?

An Arabian stud colt was recently offered for sale at Orion Farms. Doug Leadley, farm manager and primary breeding adviser for Orrion, said: “This horse is a stepping stone to getting close to perfection” and US vets who have examined the colt says it has no medical or respiratory issues. Other veterinarians who have not seen the horse in person have expressed concern. Watch the horse in action below.

Source:  What do you think? Does this horse look like perfection, a cartoon, or maybe a seahorse to you? I’m happy to hear that veterinarians who have examined this horse found no respiratory issues.  I love Arabian horses, but personally, I prefer a more classic looking face. Share this on Facebook if you do too!

    This baby does have his face shaved to make it appear even more extreme. The bedoins wanted their horses’ muzzles to fit in a teacup. His nostrils look big. Everything else is lovely. I would wait until he’s a bit older to pass judgement.

      It is a wonderful breed winning most endurance competitions and foundation of most saddle horse breeds.

    My first impression was that this was very ugly. It does not look normal or pretty to me. It looks broken. Hope this fad fails quickly!

    My husband Jeff Wonnell showed Arabian horses beginning with the first Arabian shows. This is not what they looked like. I think it is very sad what they have done to this beautiful breed.

    This makes me want to cry! Healthy or not, the poor animal looks grotesque, even frightening. What if we were to breed humans to look like manga cartoons?
