Here is another
mare from Wilkesbacka, Herbata. She is a daughter of the grand old mare Exessa
and dam of Errata.
dam Exessa was the dam of several mares, among them Exalicja
1976, and stallions *Exeter 1985 and *Essex 1986 by *Probat and Espri 1973 by
She comes from the mare line of Woloszka, born ca 1810 at
Slawuta, believed to be of a Saklawi strain. This line has two branches, through
the daughters of the mare Rusalka 1911 (Czorsztyn x Polenta): Karima 1924 by Farys
II and Niespodzianka 1931 by 35 Amurath II. Both mares were lost in World War
II but left daughters to carry on. The Karima branch is the largest and has been
very successful with horses like Celina, Ellora, El Azrak, *El Paso and Etna (one
of my favourites!). Niespozianka left a small family through her daughter Laguna
1938 by Opal but two mares from this family has actually been imported to Sweden:
*Lampka (*Gedymin x Laszka) and *Luna 1972 (*Elf x *Legenda).
by *Pietuszok was a daughter of Ellora and thus a halfsister to stallions *El
Paso and El Azrak and full sister to mares *Elizaa and *Elba. Beside Exessa she
left Exessa's full sister *Edjora, broodmare supreme and dam of Kajora US Nat'l
Ch mare. Before *Edjora was exported she left a daughter, Wiewiorka, that has
continued the family.
