I wanted to post this photo of the Shuwayman Sabbah stallion Hamdan II (Hamdan X Folla by Ibn Barakat) born in 1957, bred at Hamdan stables and imported to Austria by the late Gustl Eutermoser. I took the photo as a schoolboy in Austria back in 1979, when Hamdan II was 22.
Mr Eutermoser maintained a stud of horses from Egypt and Saudi Arabia after having lived in the Middle east for some years. Later he moved to Spain where his wife continues breeding, concentrating on asil horses tested in endurance and dressage.
The Tahawi mares on the blog reminded me of this old stallion.
