Dear Joe (F)
thank you for your post. You forgot to mention that Richard Pritzlaf used Bel Gordas in 1967 to produce Naszala for him in 1968. It was 1970 when my search began after Doug Marshall's warning. It was some years ago when Miss Ott personally shot 17 of her horses and had the veterinarian do the rest, discusted over a lot of things. I think Billy was there and then told me.So I guess even at that time people were breeding for a particular label in their mind, and not always for the horses.
I visited Richard numerous times, once stayed over a week at his place and we were close friends. He also visited my in Canada.Bill also accompanied at one time
Richard was upset not knowing of the error the AHRa made,actually was furiated.
We discussed this subject in length. That was also the time when he showed me the letter of Von Szandler returning Judi's letter to him she had written scolding him for selling Richard such bad horses. I feel certain that Edna Weeks also read it, and you may talk to her. And that started the drift, that's when Richard got upset..
I also talked to Peter Upton in in Bahrain regarding Skowronek. At that time he was adamend that Skowronek is Asil, at least this is how I understood it to be. I told him that I have taken "Honorable Lady" infront of Wentworth name out of my database, as I lost respect for her. Peter was very polite about the issue, but you may ask him the next time you see him.
You see my dear old friend, there are so many things still hidden in closets, and one needs to be careful in presenting with data so that no further confusion takes place. Time and place is always a good guideline. When we meet again, we can go deeper into some subjects, if you like.
Furthermore I enjoy discussing subject by subject and not comparing one to the other, meaning horses. Although I ask numerous times, nobody has yet come forward to help identifying the buyer in Egypt of the over 100 Syrian/Egyptian horses sent back by King Emanual II in 1872. They a recorded in the Italian JC book together with over 600 Syrians imported in 1821-and forward by King Emanual II. The Egyptian parent in them came fromt he A Pasha auction sale.
If we ever find an answer to my question we might be able to shed light on other SEs. I even gave Edouard a total 8 lbs print out years ago, and still now answer.
I even had a friend go to the Italian JC for me, pay $ 250.- to have my copy certified and have it right here, certified. I dont speak Italian, the reason why..
I feel this way, about everything we discover having questions, somewhere out there is an answer.To jump to conclusions has never been my style. To have some people get angry over it is not wise.
