My friend and former colleague Frauke Wiprich went on a trip to Syria in 2009. In Palmyra, her guide told her his cousin owned a stud of Arabian horses near Homs, and arrange for her to visit it. There, by pure coincidence, she was shown my beautiful Halima (registered as Al Tuwayssa in the Lebanese Studbook), and took these pictures. I am blessed to have them.
She was the last Lebanese Arabian mare of authentic bloodline. A daughter of Malek, out of a daughter of Radwan, out a chestnut Tuwayssah mare from the Syrian desert, most probably from a ‘Anazah tribe.
