A new Ma’naqiyah Sbayliyah filly of old US lines

This filly is the best news of the foaling season in the US so far. A young Ma’naqiyah Sbayliyah (yay!), by a Doyle (100% old Blunt) stallion out of a mare with seven crosses to Julep (Gulastra x *Aziza). She is the result of the first cross of a stallion from the Julep-Gulastra-Astraled tail male to Mesaoud to a mare from the Ghadaf-Ribal-Seyal tail male to Mesaoud ever, and the first cross between two different tail males to Mesaoud in at least 90 years. Think of it, the Doyle horses were never bred to the Julep horses.

I like this filly, and I like her dam SS Lady Guenevere too, especially that purple chestnut color.

The tail female is from Jane Ott, back to Haidee, imported by Major Roger Upton from Arabia, from the Gmassah Bedouins of Sulayman ibn Mirshid to be precise. That’s the wellspring of Ma’naqi Sbayli. The famous *Haleb was from there, too.

  1. Excellent, in all regards!

  2. Thatmare puts many others to shame.. Were the Gmassah the ones who bred the Darley Arabian?

  3. I don’t know.

    I recall that he was purchased from their neighbors and relatives the Fadaan, but sub-sections from each often nomadized together, and fought together, so it was hard to separate them.

    When Davenport visited, they were together in the same encampments (*Habda, *Gomussa, and *Haleb were bought from them directly). When lady Anne visited, they were also together, and Jadaan ibn Meheyed of the Fadaan was their common military commander. He was riding Proximo who was from the Gomussa.

  4. Is that the color they call kumayt?? In any case, a beautiful foal!

  5. almost, except that kumayt is a cherry or burgundy bay.

  6. lovely. Who is the sire of the filly?

  7. It’s one of two Doyle stallions at Rosemary. Pending DNA confirmation, apparently.
