You probably gave up on me, but here is Shah Hannah. She is approximately 59% egyptian. She would not be a horse that I would recommend someone learn how to calculate percentages on as she was extremely difficult. In order to calculate her's, I had to go back 5 generations and calculate the percentage of egyptian blood in 32 ancestors. They were as follows:
Fifth Generation Egyptian blood
COUNTRY HEIR* 0.24
MIR MAGIC 0.47
SILVER SCENARIO* 0.37
BLACK SAMBO* 1
ALAA EL DIN* 1
ROSE ZEYNAH 0.68
HILLCREST TSALMAR 0.33
AMIR FARONEK 0.47
The numbers represent the percentage of egyptian blood. 0.34 would be 34 % and 1 would be 100%. If you add these numbers together (18.805) and divide by the number of ancestors in this generation (32) you get 59%. It simplifies the process if you know which root horses are Straight Egyptian as it saves a lot of time researching this. The others were much simpler than Shah Hannah.
