Arab I, stallion

Not much is known about this horse. According to the Janow Podloski database he sired Janczar-Aga who was born in 1815.

Roman Sangusko’s history of the stud published in 1876 describes the first Arab this way: “Information exists that the first Arabian horse of the Chrestówka herd was a skarogniady (dark bay) stallion, brought over from Istanbul for King Stanisław Augustus; however in the eyes of the King, who was used to the trends and fashion of Western Europe, it was of insufficient height, and it was given as a gift to Politowski, a King’s courtier. Prince Hieronim bought him, and kept him in the herd under that surname.” It is possible this could be Arab I in Skowronek’s pedigree.
