Ehhh, whatever. An Arabian would probably kick you in the face if you treat like "livestock". Purebred Arabians nowadays are treated more like a piece of history than a useful animal. A collectible item of sort. Of course, if you have a stallion and a mare, they'd make you more collectible items that sell for a crap load of money. Last time I checked Ferrari's didn't come with reproductive organs. They're also used in sports, of course.<quoted text>In western culture, we love and respect our women and the livestock sleeps outside. I understand the history and folklore and the attachment and even the glory possessing a piece of history but that would be all that it is...a possession.
All the major breeds have registries but to someone who makes his living working the animal, what it can do is more important than who it's relatives were. Arabians are a high maintenance breed, I'd rather have the car. I've never seen a Ferrari die from a twisted gut.
And don't get all high and mighty on me. You people sleep with your dogs and they sh*t all over the place. At least horses are not filthy animals.
