Re: [RC] Historical Horses - heidi

The only Arabian that we know much about is Muson.  According to
what we know, Muson was "desert bred" and was imported to the
United States by Homer Davenport in 1906.  You can find
photographs of Muson with some information here:


and here there is some history about Davenport and the other
Arabian horses, including Muson, that he brought to this
country.  It includes some deeper information about Muson:


I am putting together a computer slide show of some of the historical CMK
Arabians that appear commonly in endurance pedigrees in the NW.  Many of
the Davenport imports (including *Muson) are influential in modern
pedigrees.  I have two (rather grainy) pictures of Buffalo Bill and *Muson
that will be in the slide show--one of him dismounted and holding *Muson
to pose for the camera, and the other as part of an exhibition with an
"Arab" rider, who is mounted on the Davenport mare *Wadduda.

Those of you planning to attend PNER will have to stop by our booth and
see our digital photo collection.


PS:  Most didn't get to pose with celebrities <g> but in addition to
*Muson and Buffalo Bill, we also have a pic of Jadaan and Rudolph
Valentino... :-)
