The legacy of a renowned breeder…Mr Daniel C. Gainey, Part 1 of 2 | Pedegru

The legacy of a renowned breeder…Mr Daniel C. Gainey, Part 1 of 2 | Pedegru | Animals Make Life Better | Scoop.it
In Jimmie Dean's words: "The most significant thing Dan C. Gainey did for the Arabian breed was to leave behind a ranch full of Gainey horses. He established quality and refinement as the Gainey trademark. He fixed a type."
Pedegru's insight:

Inspiring…that’s how I felt this morning. I’d been thinking about all the people who’ve contributed to what we think of as the modern-day Arabian horse and my thoughts ran to one person in particular Dan Gainey and Gainey Arabians. As I read up on him I was even more inspired than I expected so decided to create a history of him on Pedegru – especially since that’s what Pedegru is for! Here are Parts 1 & 2 of Dan’s commitment to and genuine, abiding passion for Arabians.
