Yeah, I saw him yesterday.
Makes me wish I had bought that pure spanish sabino mare a few years ago! LOL

I've got a few with El Shaklan but furthur back, although with your line of thinking, my Patron granddaughter could be a good match LOL

I keep thinking I want to go Straight Crabbet or CMK but then I always find myself attracted to outcrosses - like Khade. I'm thinking it is a great marketing aspect and some (like Fairview Stud in BC) have an incredible program that is pure CMK but I also think sometimes we put too much stock in "straight eygptian" or "pure polish" and not enough on individual per each other.
Hopefully that made some sense because I sort of went off on a tangent. I guess because I really like him (and TA Mozart) and would love to utilize, they just don't fit the "straight" program so I'm losing stock in it. LOL

I have liked what I've found about the Spanish Arabians and how they evolved. Military- based breeding and culling certainly set a consistent standard. I believe El Shaklan (Spanish lines) and Padron/Crabbet crosses will be phenomenal. I can't wait to see what Chevelle produxces as I believe her strong Padron influence and her own Spanish blood will cross well with Dream's double El Shaklan as well as his other Spanish blood. Both Dream and Chevelle have Barich de Washoe, another Spanish great.

I believe you can do a Crabbet program and incorporate well- researched lines as well. What many people don't realize, is that the most influential breeders in Spain imported their Arabs from Crabbet stud, thereby making many Spanish horses Crabbet anyway..
One breeder imported 12 mares and 2 stallions from Lady Wentworth.

Here's an amazing historical compilation by Arabian expert Arlene Magid. I'm pleased to say that many of the horses cited are in Chevelle's, Emma's, Dream's, Psynny's, Eden's, Echo's, and now, Fae's pedigrees. It's almost as if it was planned that way.. <weg>

She looks like daddy! Look at her and your avatar pic dru! They look so similar in it!
BTW, The page I found was a breeding ad.

She was on a roll. Can't wait to get better ones once she's shed out. Yesterday, she followed me around constantly demanding scratches. She actually flips her head under my hand like a dog if I stop or presents a shoulder/butt and "taps my arm with her head and looks back to the appropriate scratching body part.. ..

She kind of reminds me of Psynny.

It was the Arabian horse magazine. It is an old issue, from 2006 a jan/dec issue.

She does look a bit like him.. they have some common lines and both have very potent Polish blood.. They share a Padron as well, though Solei has just a little of that..
