This is my Quarab
filly Dreams Come True. She was born on the 18th of February 1999. Her
dam is a bay Arabian called Dahkilah with a strong personality,
who was very attached to her owner. You hear that often of Arabs, that
they are very much a one man-horse. Apparantly she would even wait for
the arrival of her owner before giving birth! Dreams on the other hand
is more of big child who loves everyone and everything! She has inherited her
mothers typical arab head and face features, with a tiny star
and a long thin strip.
She's not very big at just over
14.3 at 5 years of age. I've noticed a lot of
differences in growth in Quarabs. Some follow their 'Quarter' side, by
being pretty large at a young age and some seem to follow their 'Arab'
part, by growing up slower and longer. I even heard of Quarabs that were
skinny little things until the age of 5, when they suddenly grow into
their quarter skin and become quite large.
Her sire is the Paint
Stallion War Bar Leo, a kind gentle stallion of whom she has inherited
her beautiful coat and muscles! I don't know much about him, except that
he is supposed to be very cool and easy to handle. He has even been used
in the riding lessons!
Dreams has many
characteristics from both her parents, the gentleness and coolness from
her father, with a sometimes distant look in her eyes. But she can be
very emotional at times and wants to please so much, just like her
mother. This is where her great social skills derive from. She's always
the first to leave the group to introduce herself to new horses or

Now that she has
turned five, the time has come to start doing some serious excersise!!
For the past 3 years we've just been playing around and making long
walks in the natural park and along the road.. But we can't remain lazy
forever!! So we've just started some mounted work (see training section)
to build up those muscles and to teach her how to balance herself with
my weight. For now, we're just doing a lot of trail rides and working on
