  • Notes 
    • "Horse-breeding had always been carried on, the earliest breeding being for Indian cavalry markets. Advertisements of stallion-owners in about 1905 indicate the breadth of the spectrum of sires available. A. Mitchell offered his pure Clydesdale, Young Pride, to compete with H. Croxford's Clydesdale, Young Lockie. J.J. Croxford offered the services of his Irish hunter, Subah, whose progeny had allegedly brought between 25 and 45 pounds a head on the Indian market".
