Arabian Horse

The Arabian horse developed in a desert climate and was prized by the nomadic Bedouin people.  Selective breeding for traits included the ability to form a cooperative relationship with humans.  It developed a high spirit and alertness that was needed in a horse used for raiding and war.

Breed Characteristics

Arabian horses have refined, wedge-shaped heads, broad foreheads, large eyes, large nostrils, and small muzzles. Another characteristic is an arched neck with a large, well-set windpipe set on a refined clean throatlatch. Arabians have a relatively long, level croup, or top of the hindquarters, and a naturally high tail carriage.

The biographical History Mugs were created to teach and inspire individuals to learn about our diverse and interesting history.  The biographies were researched and written by history enthusiast, Robert Compton.  He colorized most of the historic photos and images used on the mugs, which were originally black and white or sepia-tone.  The images and biographies are imprinted on mugs at his studio in rural Vermont.
