1. Fire­bolt CF (Clar­ion CF x An­the­sis CF). 6-yearold stal­lion. Photo by Anita West­fall. Bred by Charles Craver; owned by Kirby Dren­nan. The five-gen­er­a­tion pedi­gree of this beau­ti­ful stal­lion con­tains no fewer than 16 crosses to a sin­gle Daven­port stal­lion, five of them through a horse born in the United States in 1943. Can you name th­ese two horses? Def­i­nitely the prod­uct of in­breed­ing, this stal­lion is ex­actly the “spice in the stew” that can im­prove blood­lines other than his own. An im­por­tant con­sid­er­a­tion in Ara­bian breed­ing is the tail-fe­male blood­line. In this horse it traces to a mare that is rep­re­sented in at least five of the other lines lead­ing to Fire­bolt CF. Who is this mare?
