Moonflower TA, Kuhaylah Hayfiyah with Moniet and Rabanna lines

By Edouard Aldahdah

Posted on June 5th, 2014 in General

Everyday I see dozens of photos of mares on my Facebook accounts and on the pages and groups I follow. This mare, Moonflower TA (Oracle RSI x White Iras Moon by Sir White Moon x CH Lyras Moniet by Tomoniet RSI x Lyras by Lysander x Iras, and hence a Kuhaylah Hayfiyah) struck me, pedigree and looks. I love the shoulder, the prominent and bony withers, the well let down gaskins and clear hocks, the strong and round croup, and the deep girth. She looks like she is a real athlete. I also like the look on the face, a combination of the Moniet look in Egyptians and the Iras one in Davenports. The pedigree is a nice mix of both. Just look at what breeding these different groups of asil Arabians together can produce. Pity it is not tried more often. She is owned by Carly Cranmore in Michigan (and she is for sale, by the way).

  1. It is a wonderful cross. One of the most beautiful examples of this type of breeding was Jackson Hensley’s Faar Al Saqlawi, by Radian Ibn Sudan(Rafaar RSI x Muniet Nefous RSI)out of the Davenport mare Maemie (Kamil Ibn Salan x Maefah). I hope someone has photos of this magnificent stallion to share.

  2. Jenny Krieg, I think I may have a couple photos of Faar Al Saqlawi for a visit to Mimmack’s in the late ’80’s. Will try to find and scan.

  3. I love this breeding program, and what can be done with Pritzlaff and Davenport breeding.
