The Field Dog Studbook provides certified lists of wins of field trial winners, registers kennel names and publishes quarterly booklets containing current registrations. DNA Does its Job Soon after the 2004 National Championship was concluded, a rumor surfaced that the breeding of the winner, Miller’s online, was incorrect, misrepresented.
This soon flashed across the field trial world by word of mouth, e-mails and as a topic of computer chat room gossip. While there is some satisfaction that the proper breeding of this dog and his brother, Miller’s Southern Pride, has been found, there is still serious fallout from this misrepresentation.
The misrepresentation in effect rendered the dogs unregistered, and as such unable to earn placements or to be bred. Owners, handlers and breeders who suspect a misrepresentation should determine what can be done today to “make it right,” thereby averting more serious damage tomorrow.
This suspension shall remain in effect until such time as DNA (both sire and dam) shall verify the correct breeding. Those individuals who signed breeders certificates (stud and dam) certifying the breeding of a specific sire to a specific bitch, or any other individual party to a misrepresentation of a registration, are the responsible parties, and they shall share equally the costs incurred by the DSB related to the work of placing a “hold” on the respective DSB records.
The Field Dog Studbook requires all pointing dogs that win championship placements (winner and runner-up), open and amateur, to submit DNA to the DSB for testing within 30 days of the win.

The purpose of an Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) Regional Studbook is to document the pedigree and entire demographic history of each animal within a managed population among AZA member institutions, AZA-accredited institutions, Conservation Partners, and Certified Related Facilities (CFS). These collective histories, compiled and maintained by an AZA Regional Studbook Keeper, are known as the population's genetic and demographic identity and are valuable tools to track and manage each individual as part of a single ex site population.
These data should be validated and further analyzed to summarize the current demographic and genetic status of the population by the Population Management Center (PMC), a PMC Adjunct Advisor, or an Approved Small Population Management Advisory Group (SP MAG) Advisor, to create a Breeding and Transfer Plan. The creation/maintenance of a current Studbook developed in coordination with the Population Management Center (PMC).
Maintaining an accurate database that allows detailed genetic and demographic analyses. On the other hand, in his 1885 book History in brief of “Leopard” and “Linden,” General Grant’s Arabian stallions, : presented to him by the sultan of Turkey in 1879.
“It was through careful breeding I demonstrated that one of Gen. Grant’s two Arab horses was a pure Barb, and Hegira Is living today as limber, vigorous and active as any four-year-old colt, although he will be 22 years old this spring of 1904, and is just as sure in the stud.” (pg 254) He was got by Linden from Nell Villa by Henry Clay; was foaled July 9, 1882, and stands fifteen and one-quarter hands high at three years old.
It would appear that in the nearly 19 years since he first published on the Grant Arabs and his column in The Country Gentleman, Huntington had changed his mind on the authenticity of the horse known as Linden Tree. One example is Canadian breeder John B. Hall’s BLACK EMPEROR, who was apparently a gift to him from the Sultan of Morocco in 1875; Huntington may have seen this horse, but he most certainly saw the offspring, having had in his herd a granddaughter of Black Emperor, the mare PRINCESS OF MOROCCO to be mated with his Americo-Arab stallion Abdul Hamid II.
Additionally, James S. W. Langerhans, the Vice-Consul at Tangier, managed to bring 6 Barb horses to the United States for the St. Louis Exposition, a clear example if there ever was one. Huntington was a prolific writer, and known for his lengthy and fiery debates with other equine enthusiasts on the differences, similarities, and merits of both the Barb and the Arabian, and he claims to have quite the extensive education on what constitutes both.
Also in his 1885 book, he wrote extensively on the characteristics of Linden Tree that, to his way of thinking, showed the unassailable purity of the horse. He can also be quoted as having said, I became quite anxious to know all the particulars relating to them, lest in future days some as yet unborn writer should tell his readers that General Grant’s horses were genuine imported Barbs, or maybe Andalusian horses, when any old many knowing to the contrary would be disputed into silence.” (pg 15) The irony, in that, is that he himself became the man in future days to tell his readers that Linden Tree was a Barb.
^ Caption: [The Arab horses “Jean” and “Missile” presented by the Sultan of Turkey to General Grant, Now at Suffolk Farm, Philadelphia. He believed in consanguinity as a breeding practice, that is, the mating of like animals to produce horses whose family traits are magnified.
A direct quote from an article he wrote in 1894: “My friends Interested in horses expressed astonishment that I should mate a stallion with his dam. But in fact the polygamous animal kingdom reach the highest perfection through closest blood conditions.
After all, while they might both have been genuine Arabians, the nature of the desert horse and the people who breed them is that there is an allowance for all kinds of variation of type. One of the noted scholars of the breed, Carl Aswan, is famous for pushing the strain theory, and the notion that you can judge a horse based on its conformational traits.
The British steamer Norman Monarch, which left Constantinople May 1, reached the Canal dock in this city at 6:30, having made the passage in twenty-six days, and had nice weather throughout the trip. Both are about 1,150 pounds in weight, are of the famous Satan race, and were selected as the best specimens from the Sultan’s stud of 570 horses.
When the long forelock falls over his forehead the large black eyes have all the expression of a Bedouin woman’s. Their gait is perfect, be it either the rapid walk, the long, swinging trot or the tireless, stretching gallop, while a rein of one thread of silk is enough to guide their delicate mouth.
Let one of these Arabs in the mad rush of a charge or a flight lose his rider, and that instant the docile steed will stop as though turned to stone. These horses are of the famous Satan race, the purest Arabian blood, only found in and near Baghdad.
Linden Tree = Missile Leopard = Jean Huntington believed Leopard’s strain to be Seglawi-Jedran Contemporary sources list them as both having been from Egypt, or perhaps bought from Egypt Contemporary sources also list them as being of the “Satan race…only found in and near Baghdad,” located in modern-day Iraq 3 of the above list is of paramount interest, as the strain name attached to an Asia Arabian is tantamount to his birth certificate.
Grant’s Barb (called Arab) Linden Tree.” Likewise, Huntington published an article in (June 1st, 1894), page 458, where Huntington himself called Linden Tree an Arab-Barb and states: I bred Naomi to Amazed as a test of the blood of Leopard, for knew positively that Leopard was a pure Seglawi-Jedran Arab, or I would not have bred Naomi to him. A union of the Maneghi-Hedrudj with the Seglawi-Jedran, is considered by the Amazed tribes to always give the best horses, combining beauty with quality, and with increased size to the Sega blood.
This does, in theory, support the idea that he might have identified what he believed to be the provenances of both Linden Tree and Leopard before this mating. In theory… Huntington may have known Leopard’s strain name before then, as Naomi was the jewel of his crown in terms of pure Arabian breeding, but it’s equally possible that he had planned to breed her and Leopard as part of his Americo-Arab project without knowing the provenance of the stallion in question.
This was reported in the National Stockman and Farmer, Volume 12 (May 31, 1886), and it marks Linden Tree’s beginning as one of the foundation sires of the Colorado Ranger breed. “Nevertheless, Mr. Huntington was so enthusiastic about the General Grant Arabians and their pictures that he wrote a book entitled General Grant’s Arabian Horses, published in 1885, in which he expounded at length his theories of breeding and pedigrees of his American made horses.
“How Linden Tree could have been a Barb and yet presented by the Sultan to General Grant as a pure Arabian was related to us prior to 1930 by the late Major C. A. Benton, Civil War veteran, who devoted his life to horses related to military action. Major Benton was personally familiar with each and every Arabian in this country in the formative period of the studbook and club.
The Major related to us on several occasions how he sought out the keeper of the Sultan’s stables and questioned him about the Grant stallions. It developed that on the day before the horses were to be loaded on shipboard the stallion selected by the Sultan as a gift to General Grant had sprained a leg and was lame.
A final piece of important information from Davenport’s book is a picture and caption, as follows: Caption: [Abdul Hamid’s favorite horse was a very old Arab, sent to him by one of the numerous tribes that give him each year a colt.
And in the end, for those like Randolph Huntington, Spencer Borden, C. A. Benton, and Homer Davenport: Quo solid credits lib enter. There does exist another possibility, one unconsidered by the contemporaries and early successors of Linden Tree and Leopard’s time from a completely different angle: that the ancestor came from Polish stock, as there was a considerable interplay of horse exchange during the Westernization of the Ottoman Empire.
On this website, an alternative account of Linden Tree’s ancestry is offered, counter to the narrative that he was a Barb or a desert bred Arabian– His Dam “Dorm HALDE”(Bay Haida), was a Haldane Simile by a Mani Dubai.
Linden Tree was born in 1874, specifically bred by Sultan Abdulaziz I. and not of Abdulhamid II. In 1864 the Sultan Abdulaziz I, founded a new farm, building with Arabian horses and sent a commission to purchase in Bialocerkiew, the stud of Count Branch in Poland, whose breeding have a very good reputation.
The Commission purchased 92 horses, including some descendants of the 1855 stallion Indianan imported from England “When the horses of the Sultan are turned into the fields in the spring for green food, the master of the horse dwells in this kiosk, where he gives a feast to the Sultan and presents him with two Arabian blood-horses, for which he receives a sable plissé, and ten of his boys are taken into the Imperial harem as pages.
It is a beautiful meadow, where the Arabian horses called Catalan, Jillian, treat, ma’new, Kushwaha, Mahdi and salami are fed on the finest grass, trefoil and oats. So famous are these meadows of Kai thane, that, if the leanest horse feed in them for ten days, he will resemble in size and fatness one of the large elephants of Shah Mahmoud (the prince of Genesis).
IF this information is to be trusted (and we really need to see the primary sources), then the dam of Linden Tree was in fact a “Dorm HALDE”(Bay Haida), was a Haldane Simile by a Mani Dubai. “ WHOM– in all feasibility, could have come from Baghdad, to bring the theory of his provenance as told by Westerners back into the fold.
As earlier mentioned, the only evidence we have available as to Huntington knowing the strain of Leopard is through secondary sources. More curious yet is his assignation as a Malawi Iran bred by Had’AAN In Had of the FID’an tribe.
This is certainly a fascinating line of inquiry, and it would be remarkable if we actually did in fact have a stronger idea of where Linden Tree came from than we do of Leopard, the latter of whom was formally accepted into the Al Hausa database as a sire.
