Helena is a very sweet-natured, black Arabian mare. She is from the mostly black Illiamo Arabians herd, bred by Mary Freeman of Illinois. Helena has a beautiful, long mane and tail. HELENA FOALED AN ADORABLE LITTLE BLACK QUARAB FILLY WITH A PART SOCK ON LEFT FRONT. THIS IS AN EXTREMELY SOLID AND QUICK LITTLE FILLY. The filly is not for sale. Helena should be in foal for a 2013 summer baby. She always has really nice looking foals and this last filly of her's is the biggest baby I've had. She is two months younger than my two spring babies I had and bigger than them. Helena could have another stout baby like her next summer.
A PAYMENT PLAN IS AVAILABLE, Buyer can pick up Helena with half-down and signed contract for the rest. Possible broodmare lease available where leasee keeps the foal. I would also consider trading Helena for good quality hay or dairy goat does.
Helena is halter-broke. She can be a little herd sour, but is fine with another horse. I have used her mostly as a companion for my solid Paint-bred stallion. They have had a couple of really nice babies that have a friendly disposition and are not too difficult to catch as youngsters. Helena is not an Alpha mare and seems to get along with most other horses, though she will nip at and put them in their place if need be.
I really like this mare, but I need to trim my herd down since I'll be moving. I'd love to see her go to a good home where she'll get lots of love. She is a beautiful mare and is lovely to watch run. If you're looking for an energetic mare to be your best friend, Helena is the one.
Helena is eligible to be registered with the AHA as a purebred upon completion of her dam's registration; her sire is already registered. She can also be registered with the American Indian Horse Registry.

I do not have a trailer, unfortunately. Buyer will have to pick her up or arrange for professional shipping. UShip.com is an excellent site to get quotes on shipping horses.
Company / Facility:
Colemans Quarabs -
I am a small Quarab / American Indian Horse breeder; just two foals a year. They are sired by my sorrel solid paint-bred stallion that has excellent foundation QH lines and that I am sure carries a Sabino gene. The dams are my two black Arabian mares; both with some Egyptian bloodlines as well as Crabbet, Babson, Kellogg, and Davenport. These babies have good temperment, usually face and leg markings, and a good build from their dad.
My horses live as a herd in as natural of a setting as I can provide in a pasture with a shed and trees for shelter. They are used to the elements and need no special pampering as some barn babies do. They eat pasture and some sweet feed during warmer months, with alflafa-grass mix hay and sweet feed when pasture grass is not available. Since they live as a group, they know how to socialize with other horses.
