Thanks Hansi and Ray. I understand Sotamm and his son Kazmeen became Egyptian when exported there, but how about his English born foal Naufal? How can he be Egyptian? And Riffals dam Razina (Rasim/Riyala) although there is lots of Egyptian in her bloodlines there are lines that go to Blunts desert imports who neither went to Egypt or had offspring go there?
Well my dear, it takes a lot to understand the system. Horses which should not be considered SEs are, others which are , are not considered. these are menmade labels and one needs to consider their usage.Labels usually enhance the value of a horse, regardless of what quality it is. I also feel it is the EAO/Egypt who is decider what is and what is not.
I consider "Naufal" (1916) a SE. He is also a multiple champion. (under saddle)
