In Awe of: Ubayyat al-Bahrain

By Edouard Aldahdah

Posted on May 6th, 2013 in Bahrain

I am extremely impressed with the structure and conformation of Jenny Krieg’s filly, Ubayyat al-Bahrain, one of two daughters of the twenty seven year old desert-bred Bahraini stallion Mlolshaan Hager Solomon, out of the Ubayyah mare DB Kalilah. I don’r think she is even two years old.

To be honest, I have never seen such depth of girth, shortness of back, strength of musculature, and length of ear (all marks of an asil ware mare) in any Arabian horse in the USA before. She reminds of war mares I have seen in Syria including Mari a Shuwaymah Sabbah at Radwan Shabareq and Nawwarah a Saqlawiyah Jadraniyah at Abdel Mohsen al-Nassif.

That’s how war mares in the desert were like. Really. Seeing this photo encouraged me to breed to this Bahraini stallion and I will do it as early as this spring, even if I would have preferred not to have to fork out 1,000 USD in breeding fees.

  1. Wow! She is maturing into a solid, solid mare. (and she ain’t lacking for groceries nuther, LOL )

  2. She is a tank!

  3. by the way this chart helps extend the pedigree of Mlolshaan a few generations back.

  4. Okay, now the curious among us are wondering which mare you will breed to Solomon?

  5. haha. Either Bint Al-Barra’ or Wadha. Not sure yet. All I know is that I want my share of this horse’s genes. 🙂

  6. If Jenny’s filly has the disposition, personality and “try” of my own Mlolshaan daughter, she is a real treasure, indeed!
