Re: [RC] QH heritage - Milinda Ellis

Those "brown mares," etc. could also have been some of those Cleveland Bays and Cleveland Bay-crosses that were turned loose on the plains after the ranches went bankrupt in the 1890s.  One rancher in particular turned loose over 2000 head.  I've been researching those horses for the last 5 or so years now.  For that matter, there were over 2000 purebreds (there are only about 700 of them now, world-wide) were registered by the American Cleveland Bay Society and listed in their 3 studbooks.  You know good and well that those stallions HAD TO have produced a lot of crosses on range mares as they were sent west to upgrade the stock horses (size, stamina, and sense).  Lord only knows how many were actually turned/got loose if one farm released 2000 of its own!  The Remount program also used them.  That would be a good place to check!

I agree, and I also think that in the older pedigrees where you see blanks or names like Brown Mare, etc., those could be Arabians or Anglo-Arabians and other crosses.

Keep looking in those pedigrees way far back and you will find a foundation Arabian.
