AHA’s Datasource has some nice photos of the 1949 Hindi imports. Here are a couple of the handsome Sa’dan Tuqan stallion Daham (Shaykh al-Arab x Muna). His sire Shaykh al-Arab was featured on this blog, a couple years ago, and was the cornerstone of Lebanon’s asil Arabian horse program in the 1940s.

  1. Wonderful, fabulous, superb, what more can you say. Edouard, these photos you show of the Asil stallions often highlight their far better conformation; in comparison with our waho horses. Daham has the same kind of powerful nicely rounded hindquarters that Hamra and Euphrates showed, and that we today so conspicuously lack. I see from the reading the article that the owners mostly outcrossed to Polish horses though. Did I understand that correctly?
