Re: [RC] KEMOSABI - Susan Garlinghouse

You tell tell how much of him will come through if your mare looks like
him (he was very prepotent).
The caveat of course is no matter who the parents are, it is the
combination which will determine your mare's strengths and weaknesses.

I'm am NO authority whatsoever on breeding of bloodlines, but Cal Poly owned
a piece of the Khemo syndicate when I was there and had a fair number of
Khemo get around.  Just in idle observations, when he was bred to the
Bask-bred mares, *I* thought the foals were lacking in substance and had a
fair number of bean brains to boot.  When bred to CMK mares, lots of
substance and much nicer to handle as well.  The current administration at
the time found the latter crop "disappointing" as they wanted high trots,
but I would have happily taken home several, if I'd had the room in the
barn.  Interestingly, none of the "successful" former crosses remained in
the breeding herd.
