Photo of the day: Niazi (France)

By Edouard Aldahdah

Posted on January 21st, 2009 in Arabia, France

Niazi is another desert bred stallion imported to France. He may have been part of the last importation before World War, but I am not sure. I don’t know his strain either. What is sure is that he is one of the first French imports whose records show the mention “asil”, a term seldom used before in French horsebreeder circles.

The imported stallions Nibeh (from the Fad’aan, featured here), Telmese (from the Shammar), El Moustabel (also from the Shammar), El Nesmeh and Chams are also indicated as being “asil”. 

Niazi left some Arabian descendents whose lines survive in South America, but not in France. 

PS: Sorry for my silence of late. Blame it all on Verizon and my home internet connection.
