aka: Little Mountain Barb, Little Barb, Lowther's White Legged Barb Little Barb] ch c 1685c. Owned by the 1st Viscount Lonsdale, he was possibly the same horse as Curwen's Chesnut Arabian as he appears to have passed into the hands of Henry Curwen. He was mated with Mr Curwen's Old Vintner mare, the taproot mare of Family 9, to produce the Lowther Barb mare. In turn the Lowther Barb mare became the third dam of the very influential stallion and champion sire Croft's Partner (ch c 1718 Jigg) and the fourth dam of the champion sire Crab (gr c 1722 Alcock's Arabian). Crab sired Kingston's Othello* (bl c 1746) who made his mark in America. Croft's Partner sired Morton's Traveller* (b c 1748) who left an indelible impression on bloodstock in colonial Virginia.
