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

I truly dont understand why you asked this. What has this to do with breeding a good horse? Nasr already topbred an Asil mare with a non-asil stallion.
Since when does a "Label" decide what is good or not? We have bred hundreds of egyptian related Arabians, does this make us a good or bad breeder? Or did we breed for good horses? Many became champions and produced such.And the stallions were "tested" to make certain that they were of breeding quality, not just looking beautiful. Gleannloch did not import originally because of a "Label", neither did Babson. That labelname was invented by Mrs Ott in her 1967 catalogue and carried forward by the PS. And when it comes down to the knitty gritty, most all ancestors of the label horses came from Syria, some from Saudi and Palestine and all could actually have originated from Yemen. .
All other breeds dont have labels, I suppose, but their breeders- and we can call them that-, try to breed for a functional horse. so may be you like to define what a horsebreeder actual is and supposed to do to qualify as such, large or small.
do you qualify GM, Ford,Chrysler as car producers? I do, they test their product. Should not any product for human consumption or use be tested? Can you imagine if this would not be so? Well my dear, this is what you have often in our industry, which brought it to its knees. Now that is only my opinion.
