The Arabian is one of the world's oldest breeds of horse, originating on the Arabian Peninsula.  They have a distinctive, refined head shape and a naturally high tail carriage.  They usually stand between 14.1 and 15.1 hands tall and their coat colours can be bay, gray, chestnut, black or roan.  Arabians are known to be an intelligent, spirited breed and there are many myths and legends about them. The picture shows a purebred Arabian stallion, though unfortunately I was unable to find a black one.
