We enjoy researching our horses' pedigrees (family trees)
and sharing this information with others.

Please click on
each horse to view its pedigree.
Other research items are listed below.
Sire Lines are the paternal (topside) of the horse's pedigree: the sire's sire,
then his sire, then his sire, then his sire, etc.
Tail Female Lines are the maternal (bottom) of the horse's pedigree: the dam's dam, then her dam, then her dam,
then her dam, etc. The Bedouins placed particular weight on the strength of the Tail Female in the pedigree.

Arabian horses were exported from their native desert lands to many different
countries, mostly to improve local horses. Nearly every modern horse breed can
trace its ancestry to the Arabian breed. Although most Arabians were crossed
on local horses to create new breeds, some countries kept Arabians to be bred
exclusively. The most famous countries for breeding Arabians include Egypt,
England, Poland, Russia, Spain, and the United States.
Arabian horses who trace in all lines to horses bred in Egypt are called
"Egyptian Arabians"; the same is true for Crabbet (a famous stud farm in
England), Polish, Russian, Spanish, and American ("domestic").

Most of the Arabians at Echo Valley are a blend of Polish, Crabbet, and early
American Arabian lines, with the exceptions being Whiz, who is half-Egyptian,
and Durango, who is half-Russian.
