    A few people were kind enough to mention my Arabian stallion, FCF Oberons Vanity, who scored very well and placed 5th at the 70 day test last fall. (He was the only non-Warmblood in the 70 day cohort...

    I won't "flame" you, but I do want to speak up on behalf of the subset of Arabians that are not "crazy". Due to the way the breed has been promoted in recent decades, one of the best kept secrets...
