  1. What a powerful,dynamic stallion!
    ..and what a pity that I can not send him my asil Hamdaniyat mares (of the strain of Abbas Pasha)

  2. Kira’ly You are so right! Given the escpecially good confirmation and movement patterns of the Bahrainy horses and their consequent potential to widen the genetic base of general list horses maybe we could try contacting the Bahrainy government to see if they would consider making frozen semen available for international shipment.

  3. Bruce, I do not know how much chance there is that, but it would be nice.
    If I look at the photos, I remember always what I read in the fantastic Artikel (The Arabian Horse News,1972) of Dr.Valerie Noli-Marais about the horses of Bahrain:

    ..”When a Bahrain Arabian horse is taken off its hobbles and proudly bursts into motion, with mane flying, dark kohlringed eyes flashing, tail straight up like a banner and arching his long neck, it is a sight to bring tears to the eyes of any horselover – for truly it is he – the real
    Drinker of the Wind…

    Best wishes,
