An excerpt:

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.
Cool read! It's always neat to see how some of the tops outcross for the best results. I wouldn't have thought of a Zodiac Matador cross but I bet they would make a super moving horse.

Here he is - He didn't get the chrome that I was looking to add on my stallion, but when I lost out on him and then he reappeared for sale, I had to have him. He is so incredibly smart, I'm just not sure if it comes from the CMK side or the Khemo blood. :)

I DID see him on another thread..maybe I missed his name. You can't lose with CMK! What a looker! I can see why you'd prefer him for Chevelle. She'd add the chrome too..LOL

Druydess that is a great link about Barich. I saw that his sire and dam were very closely related also.
Inbreeding does indeed set type and I am not frightened by it but that would be too close for me to make that call. Then again I would have been wrong not to. LOL
WSarabians I really like your boy also.
I am glad that I bought my stallion before joining this forum or I would be buying a lot of services from certain members in the future. LOL Shalom

Thank you!
I love a Russian / Polish cross, but I think a Spanish / CMK cross would be fabulous. Could you imagine the hip and bone on that foal? Phew!

And yup, the chrome would come from everywhere then! He's got sabinos everywhere in his pedigree, and came out like that. His full brother this year has four stockings almost to his belly. LOL

I've learned a great deal from that site; it's a excellent resource. Line-breeding is a valuable option; one just has to weigh all the possibilities and make the most educated decision possible. Many great horses have been produced because of it, and they've had huge influence on the breed.
