  1. Fascinating!

  2. I loved it! Thank you, Ambar, for posting this link!

  3. Interesting that “Karl Raswan” refers to NEDJARI from Sanguszko stud, born in France from NIBEH (Oriental imported from Syria), and then cancelled from the polish studbook due to Maanaghi blood in it…

  4. Absolutely enthralling. Wonderful to get such details on such an important expedition, “warts and all”.
