NOTES: The above information (except for the later transfer) is from the entry for Mesaoud in Weatherby's General Stud Book [XVII, 814]. The transfer is from Lady Anne Blunt's journal entries [J&C, 5/22/1903].
Lady Anne [J&C, 2/2/1887] indicated that she had received pedigrees in Ali Pasha Sharif's own hand for Mesaoud, Merzuk (APS) and a third youngster, Khatila (APS), which the Blunts had just purchased.
