Sweden has a very strong tradition of Polish breeding, but also quite a few Crabbet imports:

Kariba, the first of the imports, still has a line today through his son Ghazal, out of Yateemah (Blue Domino x Salinas) and Ghazal’s son Gimmick, out of Galadriel (Red Baron x Indra). There is a small, but loyal group of pan-Scandinavian Crabbet enthusiasts.

His pure Crabbet offspring, including some in Sweden, compete in endurance.
