Photo of the day: Al-Aadiyah, desert-bred mare from Saudi Arabia

By Edouard Aldahdah

Another photo coming through “pure man” is that of the beautiful asil Arabian mare Al-‘Aadiyah (Al Wadah x Afaf), from the King ‘Abd al-‘Aziz government stud of Dirab, in Saudi Arabia. Al-‘Aadiyah is a Kuhaylah Umm ‘Arqub by strain.

I recall reading somewhere that this particular strain had been owned by the Saud Royal Family for a long time. Other, separate branches of the strain are still present in Syria too. Enjoy!

  1. Wonderful photo. Please keep these coming. These horses look like they can do anything.

  2. Oh Edouard, I took a suggestion from to look at this mare and she and her foal are so beautiful! Thank you for putting up this spectacular photo.

  3. Pam, isn’t she now? But wait till you see the next ones. I am saving the best ones for the end.

  4. Suspense! It’s tough to imagine better, but if you say so, I can hardly wait!
