Far as I'm aware it's pronounced like it's spelled. It's the only way I've heard the name as far as I can recall. Did you know he was bred to his own daughters over 150 times because Marge Tone was convinced he was the perfect horse? (The story goes something like that anyhow. You know how facts get embellished. I don't know how much of it is true.)

He still makes my heart leap when I see old pictures :)

Well- just a random look comes up with quite a few that were bred back to him.

He is one of my top favorites; I can understand how you feel.

BTW-- Psynny has a line to Fadl-- through his sire/Burgundy Sun line.


Have you seen this BBB??

You're very welcome. It was especially refreshing to hear that their philosophy stated that show rings were nice, but the true way to prove a stallion was by his progeny. Seems like the old-timers knew a thing or two..

That's also the conclusion I've come after years of talking to successful breeders.

They knew a LOT I think. Now, things with the show world are so screwed up. At least IMO. I don't even ask or think of seeing "show records" because I'm so disappointed in that world and what it's become I'm almost relieved if stallion/mare hasn't been shown. Maybe then you actually get the *real* breed. Sporting events are not to be included in my mini-rant here ;)

I so agree, and since you've shown-- you know.
Annnnddd-- THAT is why I've chosen older blood like Crabbet, Polish, and Spanish <--- (due to their extremely meticulous breeding)- to produce usable, well-tempered, and yes-- pretty horses, while preserving lines people think are passe' now.
The (popular) show ring and its politics do little favor to the breed and only serves to push it toward something the Arabian never was for the glory and ego of "people" who go to any lengths to win. This is also why I have more respect for Sport-horse disciplines, as the artificial crap/BS/torturing the horse, etc. is not acceptable.

I could care less if my horses aren't the flavor of the month. They're meant to be enjoyed for life. I never follow the crowd-- never seemed to work for me..LOL

It's a good practice to learn about the history of such influential horses and their breeders. It's a valuable tool to incorporate the ideas and philosophies/strategies of those who obviously had a solid concept of the breed and how to best promote good breeding. Incorporating some of their ideas is good business.
