During Carol Mulders long career, writing and researching Arabians, she had accumulated a large amount of very scarce and important history, letters, magazines and rare photos. She then published Imported Foundation Stock of North American Horses in 2 vols. in 1969 and 1972. After their publication much new material was uncovered, including rare letters, never before seen photos and much more history. Thus, the author undertook to redo the first 2 volumes and then added a 3rd. book--this one. Loaded with material that was never published before, fascinating reading and amazing, albeit fairly poor quality, black and white old photos
The first horse covered in this volume is *Berk, a beautiful horse appreciated for his amazing trotting action, and includes so much material, including never before published photos including one by equine artist George Ford Morris, interesting letters and tons of information and history that it takes up almost 40 pages!
Other Arabians included in this work are: *ANA; *BABEL; *BADINE; *BALKIS II; *BATTLE; *FELESTIN; *HAMIDA; *KASIMA; *KOLA; *NURI PASHA;RIJAM; *RAMIM; *RAMLA; *RIZVAN; *ROKHSA; *SIMAWA and more. Information on each horse includes: Vital info-age, sex, color, year foaled. breeder, sire, dam, get, History, photos. description, breeding results and 5 generation pedigree. Amount of information varies but some ae quite extensive especially when you consider the passage of time. Several of these imports came from France and the accompanying reference material provides rare pedigree and breeder history for Arabians bred in France, material that could not be found elsewhere unless you had old French Arab book with pedigrees and history.
ARABIANS PICTURED INCLUDE: BEN AZREK; FEJR; HAMASA; IBN YASHMAK; KASIDA; RIM; RAZAZ; ROSE OF HIND; RIYALA; RUSTEM; SOTAMM; SELMA II; YAMAMA; YASHAK; *NURI PASHA; *KOLA; *BADINE; *MAKRINE; *BABEL; *BAHKA; *RIZVAN; *FELESTIN; *SIMAWA; *HAZNA; *ROKHSA; *RAMIM; *RIJMA; *BATTLA; *BERK and so many more. Many photos are from the Private Stud book of Lady Anne Blunt, a provision in her will stated that no material from her private stud book could be released until 60 years after her passing. That had happened, making use of these never seen before photos possible.
