Photo of the Day: *El Abiad

Today I was able to find a photo of the stallion *El Abiad (by Karawane x *Rajwa), a Saqlawi “Ejrifi” imported by W.R. Hearst from Lebanon in 1947. For an interesting discussion of El Abiad’s origins, click here.  Too bad he does not have asil descendants left in the USA.  His full sister, *Bint Rajwa, should have a couple elderly asil horses left, which otherwise trace to Al Khamsa horses in all their lines. I intend to propose *Bint Rajwa and her dam *Rajwa for the inclusion in the Al Khamsa Roster, next year. Photo from the Arabian Stud Book Volume VII, 1953

  1. WOW! Talk about being classically smooth! Do you know how tall he was? While a person really cannot see the head, it appears that he has a really nice eye. Stunning.
