Many of you know that I have been casually researching the history of the mare known mostly as *Exochorda for quite a few years. In that time I have collected a great deal of information regarding the history of the horses, people and places associated with *Exochorda, and I have written about this from time to time. There is a great deal of newly uncovered information to report on this topic, and research obtained by myself and Marilyn Lang during our recent stay in Egypt has expanded the file substantially. I am in the process of putting together a comprehensive article, booklet, book, or whatever size publication is required to present this case in a complete and thorough format in the near future. In the meantime, I wish to go on record with the following statement:
*Exochorda, known in Egypt as Leila II and/or Marquita, is absolutely and without question qualified as a Straight Egyptian. She was conceived in Egypt of Asil desert bred parents, born in Egypt in the possession of a famous breeder in association with and under the supervision of the RAS. Furthermore, she came to America from the Royal Stables of Egypt.
Substantive evidence and documents will be provided to support the above statement within the publication, and with the permission of Oliver and Alexsi, I will present an outline of these on this forum. Caryn Rogosky

There is a mistaken perception that I am taking sides on this issue. I am not. I have no stake and no concern with the outcome.
Without Hansi, there would be no contention on this issue. Is that correct? Why does anyone care what Hansi thinks? Just continue to call the mare SE and go on about your business! Shall we all decide that Hansi can just talk until she dies? Shall we pretend to hear and understand her and agree, just to appease her?
God save me from ever having some of you people on a jury panel. If you are my peers, I'm afraid I would give up all hope of ever receiving justice. You have no compassion, no tolerance, and no logic. You are like a mob, screaming to the hangman. Anyone who gives the slightest indication of questioning your "gospel" is immediately ridiculed and outcast.
I hope the case for *Exochorda is stated with something more substantial than "oooo - look how beautiful, it takes my breath away", or "this is the only line to Nasr". Things like "look how many important people have this blood in their horses pedigrees". These things have NOTHING to do with proving she was SE!
Why don't we all just decide that Skowronek was ASIL? That would "fix" a lot of things, now wouldn't it? Why don't we just go ahead and leave Jellabiet Feysul as the tail on all those many hundreds of horses? Hey, let's just make things easy and convenient for ourselves - It's OUR world, after all, and we should have it OUR WAY!!
My interest is in seeing that questions about the horses are answered and that everyone, including Hansi, has equal time on the floor and are not abused with vitriolic and senseless remarks. Some of you folks have bullying down to an art form!
