Photo of the Day: Amoori, Kuhaylan Krush stallion, Syria

Amoori (Al-Aawar x Ghallaieh, by the black Saqlawi Marzakani, the “horse of Al-‘Anud”) is a full brother to Amshet Shammar, pictured below. He was bred by Radwan Shabareq in Aleppo, from a mare bred by Rakan al-Jarba of the Shammar Bedouins, from a line originating from the Tai leaders, in turn originating from the Fad’aan Bedouins. This is the same line that produced the Kuhaylan Ibn Mizhir horses. The photo comes from Arnault Decroix who took it in 2000.

  1. I like the overall look of this horse. Particularly the depth of hip. I cannot tell if he is sticking his tongue at the photographer or not, but still in all this is very attractive horse.

  2. I think the tongue is out, alright!

  3. True, he did not want to take the good standing for the photo!
