Andalusian Arabian Head
Drawing - Bic Pen
The Andalusian originated in and gained its name from the Spanish Province of Andalusia. Its ancestors are the Iberian (Spanish) horse and the Barb horse which was brought to Spain by invading Moors. The Andalusian is also known as the Pure Spanish Horse or PRE (Pura Raza Espa�ola), is a horse breed from the Iberian Peninsula. The Andalusian is closely related to the Lusitano of Portugal, and has been used to develop many other breeds, especially in Europe and the Americas. (The Andalusian is represented by the names Iberian Saddle Horse, Iberian War Horse, Jennet, Ginete, Lusitano, Alter Real, Carthusian, Spanish Horse, Portuguese, Peninsular, Castilian, Extremeno, Villanos, Zapata, and Zamaranos.)
The Andalusian has a distinguished appearance, usually appearing in the colors white and light gray, and occasionally bay. It is a compact horse with excellent proportions, and usually stands at 15.2 hands. The mane and tail are abundant. It has a flat or slightly convex nose, small ears, and its head is set on a substantial neck. The chest is quite massive and the quarters are lean. The legs are clean and the action is quite energetic. The Andalusian is renowned for its ability to learn and its superb temperament.
This drawing accentuates the head and mane of the Andalusian - Arabian crossbreed. I am showing the difference in faces with this sort of crossbreeding, giving the dishing noticeable in the Arabian purebred instead of the flat or convexed look that is typical of the purebred Andalusian. In this particular animal the head and ears were more refined and the dishing was noticeable as you can see in the drawing making a very beautiful head.
