Photo of the Day: Ya’sub, a Jilfan Dhawi from France

By Edouard Aldahdah

Posted on April 8th, 2009 in Arabia, France

Louis Bauduin sent me this picture of the stallion Ya’sub in old age. Ya’sub (Shawani x Belkis by Irmak), now deceased,  was bred by Jean-Claude Rajot, and owned by James Legros. He combines two of the best Tiaret (the famous French government horsebreeding stud in Algeria) bloodlines: the Shuawyman Sabbah line to Cherifia (b. 1869, bred by the Sba’ah tribe, imported to Tiaret) through his sire Shawani (Saadi x Zarifa); and the Jiflan Dhawi line to Wadha (bred by the Fad’aan tribe, imported to Tiaret in 1875( through his dam Belkis (Imark x Belle de Jour by Iricho).

  1. Hi Edouard,

    I really wonder if there is any chance to upload a picture of my mare?
    She is a Jilfan Dhawi, going back to Wadha, too.
    If you’re interested, just let me know.

  3. Hope you got my mail… I did send you a couple of pics… 😉
