LOL! okay everyone, it's official, I am a serious Eukaliptus fan, I am like a moth to a flame, most of the horses I am really drawn to come from the "E" line.
I know you probably didn't mean it like this, but I wanted to point out as general interest the following:
- The famous "E" family of Poland generally refers to the Milordka family at Michalow, certainly how I use the term -- right or wrong. This includes, of course, Emanor, his dam Emanacja and her full sisters Emigrantka, Erlanda and dam Emigracja. Of course this also includes Emanda, Emandoria, and Emigrant of the Emigracja branch. Ekstern via his grand dam Erwina are also the other relevant branch. US horses are, of course, imported Elkana (to US) and her descendant Errica. Clearly this barely scratches the surface with champions from this family, but an idea of impact.
- Eukaliptus is from the Sahara dam line of Janow along with his dam Eunice, full sister Europa, and her son Europejczyk. Eunice is the foundress of these E horses at Janow, she was bred at Nowy Dwor.
- The 2nd E family of Janow is the Woloszka dam line via the private bred mare Elza. In my opinion there are two main branches formed from Elza's two daughters -- both by Witraz, the Ellora branch of El Paso and Gazal Al Shaqab, and Elzunia branch which gave the world Etna, Etap, Etruria and, of course, Ecaho. Again, just scratching the surface.
I am not suggesting you didn't understand the differences, but I have found many people make an assumption that Ecaho is the same family as the E family of Michalow, and didn't know he comes from the same family of Gazal. Hence I thought I would make the point, maybe I am just being redundant. Of course, the strong genetic relationship between Europejczyk and Eukaliptus is interesting to say the least. It should also be mentioned that the success of the E family of Milordka/ Michalow owes much to the siring contributions of Eukaliptus -- so the two are intricately linked as in the pedigree of Emanor -- which was probably your point.
