Welcome to August's Breed Embassy Spotlight! This will be a month-long spotlight that features one of our awesome breed embassies and its ambassador. The spotlight will include a various activities or raffles, a badge for the breed embassy, and prizes including points and pointed store pairs!

August's spotlight is on the...

Morab Embassy!

Check out the embassy here!
The ambassador is LostCause!

Unfamiliar with the breed? Here's some information from it's breed info page:
"History’s first recorded Morab was the famous trotting horse, Goldust, who was unbeaten as a harness racer, and won a famous race in 1861 against Ironduke for $10,000. In 1920, William Randolph Hearst was credited with coining the name “Morab,” for the athletic Arabian-Morgan horses he bred to work the mountainous terrain of the Hearst Ranch. Today’s well-bred Morabs combine Morgan strength and depth with Arabian refinement and sensitivity. The refined, sculpted beauty of the Arabian, joined with the Morgan’s dramatic natural style and stamina, creates an elegantly powerful horse for use in the show ring, as a working horse, or on the trail. Indeed, most Morabs comfortable switch back and forth in all of these activities."

Check out the breed info page for more information and quick facts!

Did you know the Morab can be breed-to-achieve on HP? The Morab is a recognized crossbreed between Morgans and Arabians, which means you can add an extra level of challenge and fun to breeding Morabs by choosing to crossbreed them from their two parent breeds instead of buying them straight from the store!

Store Pair Raffle

Will be drawn and awarded: August 27

Enter for a chance to win a store pair of Morabs with 100k points OR a breeding pair of one Arabian and one Morgan with 100k points!

To enter the raffle, simply reply to this thread with whether you'd like to start a line of Morabs straight from the store, or if you'd like to crossbreed them from Arabians and Morgans!
You're not obligated to stick with this gameplan if you win! This is just an exercise to get you thinking, planning, and hyped for the breed!

You can enter this raffle until 11:59 pm HP time on August 26th.

I guess I'll enter the raffle! I think if I were to start breeding morabs, I would do it by doing Morgans and Arabians and then crossing them. :)

I'd do Morabs with Morgan x Arabian, as well. If you'd like to partner, Jaya, let me know. :) I'll enter the raffle.

Woot woot! Excited to see some new Morab lines :)

Sorry for not posting sooner; was having some medical problems, felt better for 2 days and then came down with Covid so it's been a rough month.

If anyone is interested, I do have 3 store pairs set up for the Embassy that will be breeding in two weeks if anyone would like a G2 foal with some points! Just message me and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

I didn't know a thing about Morabs until I was setting up the spotlight and now I have a new breed xD I usually dislike Arabs, but Morgans are gorgeous and I'm a sucker for interesting breed history (the Hearst bit hooked me!)

I would love to enter the raffle for another pair, if I could?

I love this breed - I used to own one!

Sure! To enter, just say whether or not you'd continue to breed them straight from the store, if you'd like to try breed-to-achieve with MorganxArabian crosses!
