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.
