Recent findings on the Genetics of the Wilbur-Cruce Strain of Spanish Barb Horse
..."the WC (Wilbur-Cruce), horses share the greatest genetic resemblance to "Old Spanish" breeds and North African Barb. These horses, based on the analysis I have just done, are probably the best or near best representative of the Old Spanish type that was brought to the New World". Gus Cothran, Clinical Professor, Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, 2016.
