Nimr Shabareq, 2007 asil Ma’naqi Sbayli stallion in France

French preservation breeder Adrien Deblaise sent me this recent picture of the young Syrian asil stallion Nimr Shabareq (Zaarour Al-Barary x Yamhad by Al-Aawar), a Ma’naqi Sbayli of the marbat of ‘Atiyah Abu Sayfayn, bred by Radwan Shabareq of Aleppo. He is now in France covering mares at Louis Bauduin’s.

See how much he’s changed from the last time he was featured here.

  1. To be honest, I don’t see any improvement from the last picture?

  2. after taking a second look, i must admit that you’re right. he looks a little fatter, and the head is a bit improved. But i like him very much, despite his defects. Perhaps because i know his bloodline well, and how pure it is.

  3. Well yes Nimr could use some more groceries too, he’s much too thin. Still you can his proportional structure much more clearly than you can many western show horses. And he compares quite favorably with them. His hip is as long as his back- making him a ,”three circle,’ horse. His neck appears ewe necked but it really isn’t- as the thickest part of the neck where the vertebral column crosses the should bed is only a couple degrees downhill from his lumbar coupling- giving him an overall body balance of close to level. Again he has excellent leg substance too. Good nutrition along with reasonable conditioning by fairminded considerate trainers will help him to flesh out quite nicely.
