Monologue’s progeny over the years
Daughters of the Wind

Monologue CF (photos below, earlier and in 2022) has been producing extremely well over the years. His son Haykal Al Arab (x CSA Baroness Lady), now gelded, is perhaps the showiest colt I have bred so far (video below as a colt). My recollection from seeing Monologue’s other son Inaam Al Krush at Jackson Hensley’s several years ago is that of an outstanding horse (more photos here by current owner Kim Davis). A third son, now gelded, Malaak Al Talj (x Mi Blue Angel), at Laura Fitz, has also been getting a lot of compliments. Photos below at a young age, then as a long yearling. There is al ..read more

This morning Barakah delivered a strong, healthy filly by Monologue CF. Mother and baby are doing well. I feel so blessed, and I pray things continue to go well. The vet is coming this afternoon for an IgG blood test and plasma transfusion. This filly is special because she is the first third-generation foal from my breeding, after her dam Barakah Al Arab (b. 2016) and her maternal grandsire Wadd Al Arab (b. 2011). Wadd was the son of my first mare in the USA, Wisteria CF. She is also the outcome of a sustained effort to preserve the rare female line to *Nufoud, Albert Harris’ imported desert ..read more

This photo taken by Patty Conklin during a visit to Craver Farms. It is what it is but still gives a good indication of the quality of this very special horse, before the many upheavals that marred his life. Charles Craver used to say that Monologue represented a new type within his group of Davenport horses ..read more

Strain assignment in the Tunisian Studbook
Daughters of the Wind

Severine Vesco and I were doing some background work on the Tunisian sire lines today. We found that the Volume IV of the Tunisian Studbook (1977-8-9) had the strains of the horses assigned in the good-old-fashioned European way… by using the strain of the tail male ancestor. The stallion Rial, for instance, was given the strain of “Seglaoui” while he was actually a Jilfan Dhawi, because his dam traces to Wadha. Rial goes back to the Tahawi-bred stallion Nasr in the sire line (Rial-Esmet Ali-Hazil-Fadjer-Nasr), and Nasr was a Saqlawi or “Seglaoui”, hence the mistake. Similarly, the stallion S ..read more
