"She Benefited the Breed" No higher praise can be accorded Blackmane #16. Four generations removed from the Gen. Grant Arabian, Leopard 233 AHC. One of the greatest mares the Plains ever knew. ~ from CRHA booklet

Black Mane was also out of a mare simply recorded as Babe. Babe has a recorded pedigree, though it's generally edited out. Her recorded sire was Albert Lee, a registered Shire, #11142.
Black Mane's dam Babe was out of a mare called Hammy, who was sired by a Hambletonian and out of a mare simply listed as an 'Indian Pony.' ~posted by T. Meisenbach on FB
