The discussion about the blood marks on the bodies of grey Arabian horses elicited the most reactions this week. Readers shared photos of Asil Arabian horses from different breeding groups (Bahraini, Davenport, Egyptian, “modern” Syrian, and Saudi) with bloodmarks on their shoulders and bellies. These pictures serve as reminders that regardless of the artificial breeding categories in which breeders have sought to put them, these horses are all one. They are all Asil.
Thanks to Jenny Lees for this photo of an Asil Kuhaylat al-Kraay at the Royal Studs of Bahrain with the blood mark on her shoulder.. I will be blogging more about such fun topics, showing pictures whenever possible.
