  1. Magnifique photo de Mokhtar ! Son sang coule dans les veines de certains chevaux asils de France, moins qu’il aurait dû, mais il coule .

  2. il est pur, pur, pur, comme de l’eau de source au milieu d’une foret vierge.

  3. utilisez-le tant qu’il est encore temps! il sera tres regrette apres sa mort. C’est un concentre des qualites du cheval du desert.

  4. Lovely balanced horse. Looks like a Davenport. USA needs one stallion like him.

  5. Je n’ai malheureusement pas eu la chance des éleveurs qui ont pu l’utiliser quand il était au haras des Cruchettes. Ceci, bien que la jument syrienne qui m’était confié, Moniet Al fadi y était au même moment!… Néanmoins j’ai la chance d’avoir deux arrières petit fils et fille: Shueyman Fahad et Mohannah al faras.

  6. c’est qui moniet al fadi?

  7. Moniet al fadi est la jument de Naji Shaoui de la même lignée maternelle qu’ Hussam Shamal, elle est d’ailleurs actuellement suitée de Leyya al Fadi, fille d’ Hussam shamal.

  8. Moniet al fadi fait partie des 9 importations de 2009 dont 2 juments: elle et Rafeeket al darb

  9. Thank you Edouard for finding and sharing this photo. When I saw Mokhtar at Basil Jadaan’s he was in his prime, 9 years old, and I stood breathless as he moved so swiftly, and powerfully around his paddock without ever missing a step. He was so agile!!! All I could think of at the time was to imagine what it would be like to be galloping on his back across the desert at speed! He left an indelible image on me.

  10. I am trying to imagine how the resulting foal from Babson/Davenport mare and Mokhtar will look like?

  11. Very good question! i am wondering why those crossings have not been done in France …

  12. especialy with Babson as Chantal Chekroun owns Babson mares
