The Egyptian Arabian community lost a true friend and dedicated supporter on Wednesday, January 4th with the passing of Martha Jean Murdoch of Rocaille Ranch in Cleburne, Texas.

Martha and her husband David first joined The Pyramid Society in 1986 and became life members in 1993. Martha was an avid historian with a passion for Egyptian bloodlines, which inspired her to spend several years compiling The Pyramid Society's Manual of Straight Egyptian Arabian Horses. This comprehensive reference book was published in 1997 with the assistance of the Arabian Horse Registry of America and several other industry experts.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Martha's husband David and their family. She will be missed by so many.
