The washing up is piled up around me, the children are running feral in the garden and everyone is starving!! Typical reference to said horse was right at the back of the book and so many interesting bits to read before I got to the end! Poor family must go and attend for a bit .

I actually have very few horse books and definitely no Summerhays, so I'm glad Jen has
Most of the books I owned as a child were bundled up by my mum and sent to a jumble sale

This is a fun question really but made for interesting reading in Summerhayes this afternoon.

What was the traditional colour of the desert Arabian? and for any smarty pants what is colour number two and three? Bearing in mind the book was written in the 1960's so might not be relevant today.

Well I've come up with Bay, Chestnut and Black, but as it didn't come from the aforementioned book I could well be wrong

I dont have that book , but I would have thought Grey was the traditional colour , because white reflects heat of the desert sun , and the skin beneath was black. but I guess someone will say chestnut and bays were the most traditional colours . I am not going to loose any sleep over it tonight , very sleepy

I shall type what is written in the aforementioned tome: -

The traditional colour of the desert Arabian was bay, and it will be noticed that this quite lovely colour predominated. A little surprising is the fact that grey, which I fancy the not too well-informed believe (well that would be many of us I suspect!) to be the traditional colour for the Arab, is a bad third to chestnut, now by far the colour most in evidence. Brown is in poor supply in any breed, including the Arab.

So there you go, no mention even of black!

Lanabanana I believe it is your turn !

Right a three part question, you can answer one or all three
Don't think it will keep you clever lot amused for long though.
The questions relate to the previously mentioned stallion SAKR (Sultan/Enayat)
1. How many National titles did he win?
2. Who partnered him in the show ring? (easy)
3. In what year did he pass away and how old was he when he died?

Sakr was given to his trainer Tom Mc nair (who partnered him in the ring ) by his owner Doug marshall at the age of 26, he sired 105 pure bred horses , many national champions themselves , it say's in a nine year period he was never below top ten champion at the 7 national shows he attended . he was 29 when he died .
his show record was 123championships, 13 national titles in halter and costume.

Well done, a very full and correct answer
Apparently Sakr died quite literally in Tom McNairs arms

Is it just me or does the shadow on the wall look as though the foals head is in a totally different position with its nose on the handlers hand?
Sorry for going slightly off track
