What is a CMK Arabian?
A CMK Arabian horse must meet all three of the following criteria.
Be 75% by pedigree descended from CMK sources.
Have a tail male (or sire) line to a CMK source.
Have a tail female (or dam) line established in North America by 1950.
The CMK sources include traditional English breeding (Crabbet, GSB or Crabbet-Old English); horses imported or owned by W.R. Brown or W.K. Kellogg; unique North American desert sources, such as (but not limited to) the Hamidie, Davenport and Hearst imports; other individuals which were incorporated into the Reese (Old California) and Dean (Midwest) breeding circles of the 1950's. These special case individuals include, but are not limited to, the Draper Spanish imports in California; *Azja IV and *Aeniza in the Dean group.
The term CMK is a trademark of Michael Bowling and Rick Synowski and is used to describe Arabian horses which meet the CMK definition.
