I have tracked down Arabee's registration papers. Some showed interest in her ancestry - and while the format is terrible, I typed up the names, since I don't have a scanner. Each line is a column, and reading left to right, the names go from top to bottom (LE BARON and SUNN MAIDE produced FA SUNN BARONE....for an example). She's pretty heavy in *BASK up top! And, while I'm not a fan of writing in all caps, that is how they showed it on the certificate, so that's how I wrote it.
RM ARABEE (M)
FA SUNN BARONE, RM INDIAN SUMMER (S, M)
LE BARONE, SUNN MAIDE, STORM WARNING, BROWN-R JANNA (S, M, S, M)
LA BASQUE, LUMINESQUE, SUNN BASK, HO GULIANKA, *ELECTRIC STORM, MODEL, SILVER-SP JANEYN, TAHNA (S, M, S, M, S, M, S, M)
*BASK, HABINA, *BASK, LASMA STAR, *BASK, SOLAY, JERABY JAVAN, MUNA AL HAL, INDIAN MAGIC, SILFINA, MRAFF, MIRABA, DAAREYN, SO NERIS, TAHJAM, RAQANA (S, M, S, M, S, M, S, M, S, M, S, M, S, M, S, M)
Anybody experienced in distance riding see any familiars in there? I'm guessing not - she came from a breeder who leaned more toward showing. But then, Arabee's not built at all like a halter horse - her topline is not flat enough - her hindquarters have plenty of power built in - quite the athlete :-) not just a dainty doll who can pose pretty. (although I think she's pretty, too!)
