Photo of the Day: Mlolshaan Hager Solomon

By Edouard Aldahdah

Posted on October 5th, 2010 in Bahrain

Finally, a photo of the 24 year old desert-bred Bahraini stallion *Mlolshaan Hager Solomon at his owner Bill Biel in Michigan. Jenny Krieg went up there and took this picture, from which Jeanne Craver removed the tack. Jenny has leased a mare of Saudi Arabian lines from Rodger Vance Davis to breed to him, and Rodger also sent in another mare too. If all goes well, there will be two foals from him next year, and I am keeping all my fingers and toes crossed.

His blood is rare and precious because he is one of the few stallions out of Bahrain in the West. He is also rare because of his strain: Kuhaylan al-Mulawlish is only present in Bahrain today.

  1. You are not the only one with fingers and toes crossed!

  2. I was lucky enough to see this stallion with Joe Ferriss several years ago. Although kind of startling to the eye, as he is quite different than our typical “modern” Arabians, he showed great quality and must be used.
    Best photo I’ve seen of him. Thanks for posting.

  3. Wonderful stallion! Does anyone have a list of these very special truly Desert horses that are here in the US?

  4. He is pretty much the only US-based stallion born in a “cradle country” so far. There was *Ta’an in the mid-nineties, from Syria, but he is no longer in the US and has no living progeny here.

  5. Where in Michigan is Bill Biel located? I’d like to get back there on a family visit and take a look at him. Also does Mlolshaan freeze?, or rather has it been attempted with him?.
    Thanks Bruce Peek

  6. Bill Biel lives outside of Ada, Michigan, which is about 15 miles east of Grand Rapids. I am currently living about 5 miles east of him. Not sure if freezing has ever been considered for Solomon.

  7. I also would be interested in using Solomon as he is an awesome boy and very special indeed. I”m so pleased that Jenny Krieg and Rodger Davis have persued this this year. I am very interested in the outcome and also in the possiblity of using frozen semen on one of my mares. This is a lovely photo, thank you for sharing!

  8. wow, what an awesome horse, we have two desert mares from Antique Arabian Stud that I would be very interested in breeding with Solomon, although we dont know his geneology only that he is a rare breed and we dont know if it would be a good match, would the offspring be just as rare?

  9. Here are some photos I took of Bill Biel’s horses about three years ago. I know he has some for sale.
