In the UK in the 1950's the two dominant Kennels were Khorrassan (Eileen Snelling) and Carloway (Shelia Devitt). Both kennels were founded on Westover stock of Mrs Mathews and which contained Turkuman Danmar Pinetree and/or Turkuman Pomegranate. Such was the domance of these two kennels it is virtually impossible to not find these lines dominating the back lines of modern pedigrees. The Carloway Kennels were disbanded in the 60's, but as a measure of the influence, here is the inbreeding chart for an Afghan Hound born nearly 40 years later in 1989

Similarly in the USA, dominant kennels such as Grandeur perpetuated the Turkuman bloodlines. See below for the inbreeding chart for CH Mecca's Falstaff, a very important stud dog in the USA, and born some 25 years after the Grandeur kennel imported Ch Turkuman Nissim's Laurel from the UK. Laurel was a half brother/half sister breeding to Turkuman Pomegranate. You can see below that Pomegranate still appears all these years later in the inbreeding summary for Mecca and Grandeur bloodlines

Given that the Turkumans are so important to the establishment of dominant UK and USA Afghan Hound kennels, given that these Kennels have exported all over the world, then the impact of Turkuman globally is incalculable.

We will continue to add to this article in the future.
