The mare in this photo was long thought to be *Werdi, the Kuhaylat al-Krush Davenport imported from Syria in 1906, but turned out to be the US-bred Sheba (Mannaky Jr. x *Pride).
A first-class mare, whoever her dam *Pride was: long, long prickled ears, a fine skin, large expressive eyes, long neck, good shoulder. She compares favorably with the best Crabbet horses.
Thanks to Michael for sending me the scan a couple days ago.
