Just a dropping a couple of lines to say that I look forward to reading the upcoming Khamsat, which includes
— an article on Vanishing Lines (*Al Mashoor and Euphrates, represented by the mare Sarita Bint Raj),
— ground-breaking research article by R.J. Cadranell about the Abbas Pasha mare Ghazieh (one of the best articles I have read on Abbas Pasha horses in years, based on original documentation),
— a write up by Jeanne Craver of my presentation at last year’s Al Khamsa Convention in Pennsylvania, on a case study of a modern Syrian line (the Shuwayman Sabbah of the Jarba Shammar) and its link to US imports of the 19th and 20th century.
— a report by Rosemary Doyle on the WAHO Conference in Qatar.
It’s nice to see this small, self-funded publication featuring so many cutting edge topics in one issue. I love the spirit the Khamsat embodies. Homegrown, volonteer based, yet global in it reach and cutting edge in its coverage.
