RJ Cadranell just circulated this picture of the Kuhaylan Hayfi stallion Capulet (Lysander x Silvia by Sir) from the Arabian Horse World magazine.

  1. wow talk about an exotic head and face love those huge nostrils on a tiny muzzel. This may be a question for Jeanie but. Were there davenport lines that were inclined to have extreme heads and which ones were they.

  2. The website linked below is a catalog of Davenport horses at Craver Farms in 1999. Horses are catalogued into the different lines with photos of them. Some lines do have more extreme heads than others.

  3. In life he did not have what I would call an extreme or exotic head, although it was classic and noble. What you see in the photo is the great width between the eyes from Letan. Capulet also has the expansive Davenport nostrils. The broad forehead makes the muzzle appear small. Davenport horses are not known for small muzzles.

    When I visited Craver Farms for the first time in 1979, occasionally a horse with a prominent jibbah would be pointed out as having the *Abeyah head. We asked, “Do you breed for that?” and the answer was, “We like it when we can get it.”

  4. RJ this is exactly the answer I got when asking four or five different Bedouin inidividuals about whether they bred for pretty heads: “we like it when we can get it”.
