Photo of the day: Nile Swan

By Edouard Aldahdah

A beautiful representative of the Shaykhan strain tracing to the Lebanon-bred mare *Layya imported by W.R. Hearst is the 1992 mare Nile Swan (Ansata Nile Comet x Fadda Laila). Congratulations to Michelle, her new owner. I hope this mare and others from her strain, like Jenny Krieg’s HS Marayah, contribute to a renaissance of this rare and precious strain.

  1. I don’t want to keep beating up a dead horse, but someone needs to find PH So Uneeq, who is from the same family, and who is not dead 😉

  2. Do you know she’s not dead, or is this faith, here?

    Last recorded owner in Datasource is Patricia Lang in Woodburn, IN 46797. That transfer is dated 1 Jan 1989. However, that owner is credited with breeding a filly born Sep 2001. puts a Patricia L Lang at the same address in Woodburn, but her phone number is unlisted. Someone will have to write.


  3. Would you be willing to? The last time I tried to do something of this sort, the owner of the horse thought I was a Bedouin who was planning a ghazu on her horses…

  4. Well, there’s no guarantee that I won’t come off as a crazy Californian trying to steal a horse, but I can write. 🙂

  5. Yay! that’s a huge service to the cause!

  6. Hi All, I was able to get an email address for the owner of PH So Uneeq. I will let you know if I talk with her. Maybe she can at least share a photo of her with us. Michelle

  7. This is good news..

  8. Michelle, that’s terrific. I’ll wait to hear from you.
