Oh no ~ you are not an idiot by any stretch......We all learn something new daily! If we don't, we truly know nothing ;)
On her sires side via the mare BASQUINE's dam is where the Crabbet comes from and then on her dams side the mare FIXALEYN appears to be at least 90-95% Crabbet.
The Polish/Crabbet cross is one that has been known to work for many many years. Typically seen is the Polish sires side to a Crabbet dam line.
Moons ago I purchased a PP mare that was in foal to a 100% Crabbet stallion. When asked did I want the foal I said 'nope'. The reason behind that was I had only seen/researched at that time a handful of Crabbet Sires side/Polish Dam's side Arabians where it worked.
After foaling the mare out I must say I was glad that I did not purchase the foal as well. While a super neat neat colt, he was totally not what I would have bred myself.
Will have to take a peak around FB and here and look for pics of your mare. I can't wait to see her and her foal ;)
