I don't know if you ever read this about Barich WSA, but the info is a good read. Perhaps others interested in Spanish Arabians will find it interesting as well. http://www.spanisharabianhorsesociet...st_Barich.html
One of the most striking things about the *Barich foals is their uniformity. It doesn't take much imagination to guess the outcome of a given mating. "We wanted an inbred of a different line---that strength of pedigree to breed with our linebred mares," says Bruce. "As it turns out, the poorer mares of a bloodline breed as well with *Barich as the best of that bloodline, which means that his strength is coming through the blending of the blood. But, of course, that's hybrid vigor--the crossing of two different inbred lines. "
After Bruce and Gerry saw the great consistency and the prettiness that *Barich was throwing, they went to Spain to research his pedigree, finding that there was nothing bred quite like him. They returned 13 times, subsequently importing several pure Spanish horses, including the handsome *Vallehermoso (Procyn x Betelgeuse by Tabal), who is being used on BruMarBa's *Barich daughters.
