It must, however, always be remembered that there was a bitter battle of strong wills between Carl Schmidt aka Raswan and Lady Wentworth.
To top it all off - the mu'niqi strain, like all other strains, represents nothing more than a naming protocol
Physical attributes are relative to the gene pool. All history is but a snap-shot in time
I'm sorry to hear you say that "All history is 'just a snap-shot in time."
Here's a photo:
"Carl Schmidt aka Raswan" as you call him. He is sitting on a horse named Raswan from who he changed his name to.
He loved this horse so much, that he changed his name because of him.
Oh... and by the way, this horse, was a gift to Carl from his arch enemy Lady Wentworth.
The horse is also an own son of Skowronek.
Carl also notes that Skowronek's dam has a Turkomen stallion in her pedigree.
How on earth could this be?
An interesting fact...Carl changed his name from Schmidt to Raswan in 1930.
When did Lady Wentworth publish her commentary as you posted on post #39?
a double take
