The Blue Arabian Horse Catalog $199.99

by Jane Llewelynn Ott

This second edition is a reprint of the original edition of 1961, and includes the subsequent updates that were issued after the original book appeared.

In the Blue Catalog, Miss Ott intended to catalog all registered Bedouin-descended Arabian horses. She divided the horses in the book into two groups:

• those who had some blood of the Muniqi strain (which Carl Raswan taught was less desirable because of impurity in that strain) and

• those tracing only to Bedouin horses of other (presumably more desirable) strains.

The author placed an asterisk in front of the names of the horses with no Muniqi blood. Horses so designated became known as “Blue Star” - “Blue” for the blue notebook in which they appeared, and “star” for the asterisk. The other horses listed in the Catalog are called “Blue List.”

All of the "Blue Arabians" listed in the Catalog are widely acknowledged to be asil (noble or pure), originating from Bedouin-bred ancestors in all lines of their pedigrees.

At the time this book was published, it was highly controversial because of its claim that many registered Arabian horses had blood that could not be proven to come from Bedouin tribes. The fact that one of the Sub-List horses was the sire of two of the most popular sires in America at the time made Miss Ott’s allegations particularly upsetting.

With the passage of time, passions have cooled. As more information has been revealed about the origins of some ancestors of Arabian horses registered as purebreds by various breed registries, it has become increasingly apparent that Miss Ott was a pioneer researcher who truly was onto something.

Whether or not you agree with all the opinions and conclusions of the author, there can be no doubt that she created a valuable book about some of our breed’s important foundation bloodlines. If not for her efforts, many of the early Bedouin lines that have been perpetrated by preservationist breeders (e.g., the Al-Khamsa and Egyptian lines) might have been lost.

Today, this book still has value to any breeder seeking to preserve – or increase – authentic Bedouin lines within their breeding programs.

And did we mention that the supplements are fascinating reading?

Format: Blue three-ring notebook. More than 250 pages and lots of old black and white photos. The pages are typeset on slick, magazine-quality paper. Because these remaining copies have been stored, they may have taken on a slight musty smell but they are otherwise in remarkable, unread condition. The book is out-of-print and there are no plans at present to reprint it. This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of Arabian horse history.
