I'd be more than happy to proof read too - particularly for the Russians I also have quite a large collection of photos on my laptop which I could sort through- all Russian, of course!

This is a brilliant idea - but it'll be a huge project!

Maybe it'd be easier for you to add things as you go in sections??

As there is so much else to add - performance... ridden/jumping/western/ dressage, apart from in hand and pedigrees and anglo and part breds & coloureds + all the show records and all the photo records & gosh... all the history that people have!

It would be a wonderful thing to do though.

Hi Chris,

Yes think its going to be huge If everyone just adds a bit of knowlege and helps eachother its going to be brilliant.

The more sections the better so all suggestions are more than welcome, we dont want to miss out on anything.

Excellent idea.
(There is already a brilliant framework for all pedigree information on the allbreedpedigree website, where the full pedigree of any horse can be viewed and detailed information concerning any horse including a photo can be added by anyone so that this is easily accessible. A vast number of Arab horses, their pedigrees, information about them and photos are alreay logged on this site. Will the pedigree part of the LL be a duplicate of this, if so is there a legal way that the two sites can share all the data concerning Arabs? If so this would give your idea a massive jumpstart and avoid a lot of people putting in a lot of effort into contributing information that is already out there and provide an excellent frame work for people to suppliment futher information. (I am assuming that allbreeds makes its money by people subscribing to the site for detailed ANALYSIS of tb pedigrees? the simple pedigrees, progeny, photos and info is free, so there may not be a conflict of interest especially if added info was mutually available ?? As may be clear, I know absolutely nothing about IT or websites there may be reasons, glaringly obvious to you, why this is a stupid idea, if so sorry !!! ))
cheers
Lisa

Although allbreeds is very usful, there are quite a few errors. I doubt whether pedigrees are checked on that site. I am sure that AL will verify all pedigrees that are submitted.

Well....was waiting for A/L`s to tell me all about the horse in the pic...Oh well, will tell, for those who do not recognise this famous Arabian Horse

GOLDEN WINGS was a Pure Crabbet Arabian gelding, Bred by Mrs E M Thomas in 1966. Wings stood 16 hands, excelled in the hunting field, where he flew the jumps and would go all day, never tiring. His well deserved fame came from the gruelling world of top class Dressage.

He had the most amazing paces inherited from his sire Bright Shadow,born from the famous mare Silent Wings by Oran

Together with Carol Pearce, this very flashy chestnut with blonde mane and tail, quickly dispelled the considerable prejudice towards `that Pink A-rab` as he became known in dressage circles. This formidable team, steadily upgraded to Grand Prix, representing Great Britain in Belgium and at Goodwood, where they won the prize for highest placed British entry competing in Prix St George and Intermediare 1

Wings and Carol gained Ridden BNC in the showring at the Nationals and competed successfully at Royal International, a favourite venue for Wings as he loved the applause of the huge crowds there. This incomparable team gave dressage displays at the performance show and Ascot, also riding side saddle.

Wings developed arthritis of his knee in 1981 and was retired to spend his last happy years with Paul Fielder at Jenny Lorriston-Clark`s establishment

Will such a horse ever be seen again?? Do feel that though his height is not considered `typey`for an Arab, in the competition world, Golden Wing`s extra height together with his enormous presence and wonderfully expressive paces.....stood him above the usual pattern of dressage horse. Lets breed more BIG Arabs to fly the flag in open competition

OK, everyone that has offered help we are going to launch a new sub forum for AL LL specific discussions.

We suggest to let the main contributors to the AL LL will have their own private forum for discussing upadates, uploads etc.. and will be the place we explain how its all going to work ;-)

All members are welcome to post suggestions to this forum for inclusion in the AL Living Library.

OPINIONS PLEASE

Very excited at the prospect of what could be achieved here. All that knowledge and information being recorded for posterity is a great project.

For example, the picture of Golden Wings that Babs posted is lovely, but, with the information she gave us about this amazing horse, makes it so much more interesting. It's the personal things about these horses, character traits, strengths, and weaknesses, that we want to know about.

A huge undertaking for sure, but so worthwhile. Thanks to all who will be contributing.
What a fab idea!
