Tail female asil Egyptian lines

Now this is the list of asil tail female Egyptian lines around the world (including Egypt). This list has been compiled many times before, including by J. Forbis in Authentic Arabian Bloodstock and by Colin Pearson in the Arabian Horse Families of Egypt.

Kuhaylan

1) Rodania, Kuhaylah Rudaniyah, imported to the UK in 1881, through descendants Bint Rissala and Bint Riyala, and bred by the Ruwalah (‘Anazah)

2) El Kahila, Kuhaylah (maybe Krush), imported to Egypt in 1927, from the House of Saud

3) Nafaa, Kuhaylah, imported to Egypt around 1945, from the House of Saud

4) Futna, Kuhaylah Khallawiyah, from a line imported to Egypt by the Tahawi from either the ‘Anazah or the Mawali ca. 1910

Saqlawi

5) Ghazieh through Bint Helwa; Saqlawiyah Jadraniyah, Ghazieh imported to Egypt around 1850, bred by the Ruwalah (‘Anazah)

6) Roga El Beda, Saqlawiyah Jadraniyah, from the Stud of Ali Pasha Sharif in Egypt; research on tribal connection ongoing.

7) Mabrouka, Saqlawiyah, imported to Egypt in 1945, from the House of Saud.

8 Hind, Saqlawiyah, imported to Egypt in 1945, from the House of Saud.

9) Bint Barakat, Saqlawiyah Jidraniyah, from a line imported to Egypt by the Tahawi tribe from the ‘Anazah ca. 1920

‘Ubayyan

10) El Shahbaa, ‘Ubayyah Um Jreyss, from the Stud of King Fouad in Egypt, research on tribal connection still ongoing.

Hadban

11) Venus, Hadbah Inzihiyah, imported to Egypt in 1893, research on tribal connection still ongoing (more on that later)

Dahman

12) El Dahma, Dahmah Shahwaniyah, from the Stud of Ali Pasha Sharif in Egypt in the 1880s; research on tribal connection ongoing.

13) Bint El Bahreyn, Dahmah Shahwaniyah, imported to Egypt in 1903, from the House of Khalifah of Bahrain.

 Shuwayman

14) Folla, Shuwaymat Sabbah, from a line imported to Egypt by the Tahawi from either the ‘Anazah ca. 1910

Multiple Strains Recorded:

15) El Samraa, recorded as both Kuhaylah and Saqlawiyah, from the Stud of King Fouad of Egypt, research on tribal connection still ongoing.

So all in all, there are 15 asil tail females of Egyptian horses today. This excludes Bint Kareema, whose asil credentials are still weak. Note the large number of lines (5 out of 15) to which we cannot ascribe a tribal origin nor an original Bedouin breeder. The research is still ongoing on this front.

  1. In Germany and in Slovakia they Bint Kareema descendants listed as Obeya n.s.
    But unsure this is true…

  2. Who was Bint Karima Inshass ???

    Bint Karima was born 19 May 1935.

    Her sire was Rasheed b.1917 (Jamil-Zareefa) by Lady Anne Blunt.

    But her dam Karima…we havent her date of birth, only the sire Dahman and dam Obeya.

    No strain was given for her in the Inshass Herd Book.

    Later, when the Horses of Inshass moved to El Zahraa, they was made Obeya as the strain, because the name Obeya is similar to the strain name Ubayyah.

    But this is not truth.

    Karima was the daughter of Dahman el Azrak out of Obeya the daughter of el Dahma, Karima must born in 1911 this was the last Foalgroup sired by Dahman El Azrak., Obeya produced her last foal in 1915. So it is possible.

    Karima was an old mare in her twenty’s when she gave birth Bint Karima.

    Paraskevas said also in his Book, that Karimas Sire was Dahman el Azrak.

    So her strain is Dahmah Shahwaniyah, we can made mtDNA tests to proof it, if Obeya the dam of Karima is the same Obeya who was the daughter of El Dahma.
