He is with Debbie Jessen in Illinois, and a good horse, with a good pedigree. A 2003 Regency son, out of a Plantagenet daughter, out of a Sir Marchen grand-daughter, adding a line to the handsome Ibn Hanad (last headshot in black and white).
The first photo shows Chancery as a five years old, and the second and third as a growthy four year old. Asil Arabians of Davenport bloodlines are slow growers, and do no fully mature before 7 or 8 years old. Note the very short back, the deep girth, and the free shoulder movement.
In the last photo with Charles Craver, note the width between the eyes, the broad forehead, the protruding eye sockets, the length of the distance between the eye and the base of the ear, the small muzzle, the wide and delicate nostrils, and the prominent facial bones. Note the resemblance with the Ibn Hanad cropped headshot, too.
He is one of the three or four horses in my shortlist for breeding Jadiba to.
