Could someone please explain what the difference is between Blue Star and Blue List? Are they a specific family or strain...? Can a horse be both, or only one or the other?

Thank you for your input,
Teresa

Echo1 said: However, what is interesting, is that the Blue Star and Blue List horses were bred from a smaller group within the entire of SE.

my reply: hmm. well... I think that is mostly correct, but not completely? BLUE STAR and Blue List are two separate lists, although a BLUE STAR bred to a Blue List will produce a Blue List. I think that all 'Blue' horses are Al Khamsa, and I think that all or most Blue List horses are SE. Are all Al Khamsa horses SE (except for the BLUE STARs and Davenports?)


Echo1 said: Therefore, what I am suggesting, is that in today's population, they may help some breeders in that there could be some outcross blood for them.

my reply: certainly there are outcrosses available.

It would seem to me that breeders would be interested in breeding back to the closer-to-the-desert blood, but most don't seem to be. I can't speak for them. I know they would step outside the SE Preservation group and also lose the SE marketing label - even though they are going back to the source that the Egyptian horses came from - but, again, the Egyptian breeders selected and bred for specific type that tends to be somewhat different than the direct-from-the-desert horse. I think that most SE Breeders prefer that type and so of course, they aren't going to bred away from it.

An SE/BLUE cross would still be (I think) Al Khamsa and still a preservation breeding, but I think there are few people pursuing that. I do believe there are some SE/*TURFA programs, I'm not sure what else is being done along those lines.

I remember, a few years ago, an SE/Davenport mare that knocked my socks off! Not just her, but the wonderful consistency of her foals bred to a range of stallions.

echo1 said: Many simply advocate that we breed by phenotype alone, which as we ALL know how important it is to look at a horse and consider this first and formost, however, if anyone plans to do any long term breeding or breeding horses for generations, we should really consider just what is going on in the genes of the horses we are breeding.

my reply: I totally agree with this. In linebreeding my horses, I'm seeing the repeated grandparents reproduced rather than the parents.

I believe that if you look at phenotype alone, you are only seeing a small percent of the potential picture.
