The Darley Arabian

17 Jan, 2017

tullykyne_princess_sister_carraig_thiarIn recent months, the town of Aleppo in Syria has rarely been out of the news. Let us hope that 2017 brings better news from that troubled region. Breeders all over the world have a special interest in Aleppo because it was there in 1704 that Thomas Darley, the English merchant, bought the young colt that became known as the Darley Arabian, one of the founders of the modern Thoroughbred. Very few breeds, and certainly the Connemara, have not been enriched by the very same Thoroughbred and Arab blood.
