Owners of Living Arabian Horses 1937
Index of Importations beginning 1893-giving yr. imp. Reg. number, sex, name, importer, breeder.
Then comes the Registrations, beginning again with #1. Each horse has reg. number, name, color, STRAIN, sex, marking description, sire, dam, breeder and date foaled and those already deceased are so noted. These wonderful old books are the only source of markings descriptions for the early Arabians in this country. This is helpful in identifying horses in old photos as well as tracing hereditary traits. After this book was published the Registry changed the format and when Vol. 5 came out in 1944, they discarded the markings, strains to the format we all know best.
