Barely Surviving Lines: *Urfah through Shasinada

By Edouard Aldahdah

Posted on June 23rd, 2011 in General

Shasinada (Hanad x Shadi by Asil out of Sherah by *Hamrah) was a Hanad daughter (read RJ Cadranell’s article about the legacy of Hanad here) and an asil Saqlawiyat al-‘Abd, whose pedigree primarily (99%) consists of horses imported from the desert by Homer Davenport in 1906, with a touch of Major Upton’s bloodlines. She was very closely related to the Craver stallion Tripoli (Hanad x Poka by *Hamrah).

Today, there are probably two mares left tracing to this mare, left alive, and they don’t seem to have registered progeny. ML Ayriana is one (TreffHaven Ruabbas x ML Roushana by Treff-Haven Hotai out of Shamma El Ajzaa by *Sanaad out of Shasinada), and ML Shariaa (TreffHaven Ruabbas x ML Malika by Treff-Haven Hotai out of Shamma El Ajzaa by *Sanaad out of Shasinada) is the other. They were born in 1992 and 1989 respectively. I am going to track them down.
