Am so excited to tell you that I just acquired from Abe Books a first edition of THE WORLD'S BEST HORSE by Lady W. In it she discusses purebred parti-colored horses. It runs to a couple of pages but if anyone is interested will be happy to type out some of the pertinent paragraphs. But more importantly there are several copies to be had there along with some other super Arabian Horse Books!

It is excellent and you have no doubt made quite an investment! Am kind of surprised the Sabino breeders aren't interested in those pages devoted to the parti-colored horses as it surely put the lie to Albert Harris's nonsense. Oh well....

'Out of the entire chapter, this for me was the most important - mid paragraph page 169:

"Abbas Pasha had a parti-colored Wadneh Hursanieh mare by a Shueman Sbah sire called Tabbukh belonging to Mohammed Ibn Khubeysan. She originated with Hamoud Ibn Saadun Sheikh of the Muntaghaj, and was a great granddam of Mahruss I. It is from her that the white patches seen in some of our horses such as Nezma Shareer, Astrella, and Shafina are probably inherited. I have just received photographs of a pure Arab mare, Trabag, first prize Palermo Show, 1949, lavishly skewbald in irregular patterns, chestnut and white, and tracing back to the Crabbet horse Ajman. She has a white mane and tail. "

She then goes on to describe colors listed by Abu Bekr, c. ad 750 of Arabian varieties.

Thank you Gari. Very interesting. Sure would seem the white doesn't come from outside blood, huh? Does Abe Books have a website?

Below is the Abe Books website. Put in the name of your favorite author and voila! You usually find what you are looking for.

What I found that was so interesting is that she notes that the Persian royals bred specifically for high white/parti-color...look at the horse on the lower right side of this painting.. And the parti colored in the low middle in the second painting...and the bottom ...interesting....
