Photo of the Day: *Hamra Johara, desert bred Ubayyah from Saudi Arabia

By Edouard Aldahdah

Posted on January 16th, 2010 in Arabia, Saudi, USA

Dick Reed of Toskhara Arabians in Texas shared this photo of the Ubayyah mare *Hamra Johara which was imported by Lewis Payne (pboto) to the USA in 1961. Dick’s stallion Line Dancer, who won 24 races in 30 starts in the USA and the UAE, traces four times to this mare which was bred in Najd, Saudi Arabia, by the House of Saud in 1952. Thanks Dick for sharing this photo and the information on this precious mare.

  1. It makes me so sad when i see this mare and realize she was only a few hours from the Roach farm and stallions within her breeding group…. all lost for us. She made nice ‘blends’ for the owners, but…

  2. That is what makes the internet so potent……we can communicate so much more easily and it makes it possible to save horses that would never have been saved years ago.

    She LOOKS like the Roach horses. I visited them years ago.

  3. Did you happen to take any photos of them? I know we would all be interested, if you did!
