Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Lieutenant Colonel N. Naski (in old German), with modern typed transcription, 01 December 1897

Identifier: Coll-14/9/3/16

Scope and Contents

Naski discusses the patterns and colouring of foals hide in comparison with that of their parents and with respect to different breeds and the progeny of hybridisation experiments. He concludes that in most cases, stripes on the foals shoulders and legs tend to disappear when these horses reach maturity. Stripes are most common with white horses and are conversely very rare with brown ones.
