From our Arieana Notebook: Domow was bred and owned until 1922 by Hingham Stock Farm and for whom she had her first four foals including her son Tabab. Then Domow's ownership is noted as transferring to Morton S. Hawkins of Indiana for whom she had one foal. In 1926, her ownership transferred to Dr. C. D. Pettigrew for whom she had one foal. In 1928 when she was 15 years old, Domow was sold to John A. George of Indiana for whom she had four foals including her son Mahomet. Sometime between 1934 and 1936, Domow was sold to Walter Gillis of Texas, and for whom Domow, in 1937 at age 24, produced her last registered purebred Arabian foal. After that time Domow disappears from public record and her date of death is unknown.

Domow, a beautiful bay mare has been the focus of much controversy over the years because of her bay coat coloration. Geneticists believe that when chestnut is bred to chestnut, bay cannot result. Yet here is Domow as bay as bay can be. She is recorded as the daughter of the chestnut mare *Wadduda and sired by the chestnut *Abu Zeyd, a stallion by the way who has also gone down on record as siring Radi, another bay foal from out of a chestnut mare, this bay foal bred at the Maynesboro Stud of W.R. Brown out of the mare *Risalda (Daoud x Risala). Recent mtDNA testing has shown Domow to indeed be the daughter of the chestnut mare *Wadduda, and that Rodania and *Wadduda share the same source of mtDNA. And so her coat coloration mystery remains: is this a rare genetic trait inherited from her sire or residing within the dam line? Or is there a mistake on Domow's original registration records as to her factual sire? We at Arieana tend to trust that Domow's coat coloration was the result of a rare recessive gene and look to *Abu Zeyd as her sire for the many heritable traits they share in common.
