<< I forgot to mention that our horse - Sukaro HCC -
achieved his 3000 mile patch this weekend! He's
one of the Hyanis Cattle Co. horses - out of
Kosciusko - the Russian import, and really a heck
of a horse. >>
Congratulations on the 3000!
I would like to correct both the pedigree and the terminology, though. First
of all, horses are "by" stallions and "out of" mares, and since Kosciusko is
a stallion, no one is "out of" him. Furthermore, Kosciusko is not
Russian--he is old Polish, being by the great old horse *Witez II and out of
a mare that came on the same importation--*240 Koheilan VIII-5. Thirdly,
Sukaro HCC is not "by" Kosciusko, but is rather "by" the Russian stallion
*Sukuris and out of the Hyannis mare HCC Rushara. She is by a Polish
stallion (*Ruszt) and out of Queen Shara, who IS by Kosciusko, and out of the
old CMK foundation mare at Hyannis, Razifa, who produced top-notch endurance
horses by virtually everything she was bred to. Queen Shara is a full sister
to Hal Hall's old horse El Karbaj, and by different stallions, Razifa also
produced multiple Tevis winner Witezarif and AERC National Champion Law
Thunder. Although I have not checked for a few years, I am unaware of any
top endurance horse from Hyannis that does NOT trace to Razifa--she really
seems to be the horse that put them on the map.
