Re: [RC] *MORE* on markings - D'Arcy Demianoff-Thompson

I am curious about one thing.  When were the Darley, Gondolphin, and Byerly Turk bred.  Were any of those descendents such as the Priboj lines crossed onto mares that may have had Thoroughbred blood?

Boy, the more you look at all these rules the more you find that one way

Now, it looks like 7 is blessed!:

Should the horse have white leg markings, desire three white marks, with
the exception of one off-foot, the fore or the hind, it matters not.
(this gets 7 in the door if you don't count a tiny wedge of white on his
RR coronet)

"Hold in high regard a horse without white markings on his legs and a
white star on his head or with a simple stripe. The stripe must reach
down to his lips-his master will never lack for milk. It is a felicitious
indication. It is the image of the dawn. If the star is broken and
irregular it will please no one, and if the animal has, in addition, an
off-fore with a white sock, no man in his right mind should mount the
animal, no connoisseaur would even want to own him. That horse slays like
subtle venom.

A good sign is a white off-fore with a white near=behind. ONe terms that:
"The hand of the scribe and the foot of the horseman." The master of such
a horse cannot help but be happy, for he mounts on a white foot and
dismounts on another (It is known that the Arabs mouint on the off-side
and generally dismount on the near).

Two white hind feet are an indication of good fortune:
The horse with two white hind-feet,
His master will never be ruined".

The same thing does not apply to a horse with two white forefeet; his
master will always have an ashen face.

Never buy a bald faced horse with four white feet for he carries the
shroud with him.

I *think* that's all of them.
