The two Krush sisters are off to a new home

By Edouard Aldahdah

Posted on December 19th, 2013 in General

Yesterday night, my two Krush mares Bint al-Barra and Cinnabar Myst arrived at their new retirement home, at Kathy Werking’s in Kentucky (who was the last home for another mare of rare lines, Princess Asjah, who died recently). I owe a huge dept of gratitude to Jeannie Lieb, who found them this new home; Kim Davis, who hosted them at her farm when one of them was about to foal; Jeanne Craver, who hosted them for more than year before that; Kirby Drennan, who brought her magnificent Clarion CF to breed one of them; Nancy Becker, who watched over them, and Trish Stockhecke, who bred them and cared for them for the first 22 years of their life.

The two full sisters leave behind a nice 2013 replacement filly, Mayassah Al Arab (Clarion CF x Cinnabar Myst) who will carry the line forward, and bring close crosses to the early twentieth century greats like Abu Zeyd, Segario, Hanad, and Letan well in to the twenty first century. I wish the other sister had conceived as well, but nothing came out of her breeding to Aurene CF. Still, mission accomplished, for now.

  1. Wonderful news! Congratulations to all.

  2. Word from Kathy this evening says her daughters caught the mares and groomed them while Kathy was still at work. Big smiles all around!

  3. Jeannie, that is wonderful news. Those are very sweet mares, and I know their new family will love them. And it is an added bonus that they are kept together, since they have never been apart.

  4. This is fantastic news! So happy for all involved! Thank you’s to Edouard and all those mentioned above for helping preserve these precious bloodlines! Jeannie Lieb…you are something else !!! Happy news and Happy Holidays to all!

  5. It really does take a village. Glad to hear the good news.

  6. They are settling in nicely and we love them already! Their new goat “sister” has been adopted by them–so all is well!

  7. Kathy, good Christmas news. Thank you for opening your heart to Bint and Myst!

  8. I happened across your website and I just wanted to say thank you for breeding the older style Arabians. I’m sick of the new dish headed horses people are focusing on these days. Your horses are beautiful! Keep up the good work!

  9. Thank you Lauren, I appreciate the encouragement.

  10. This is wonderful news… so happy for all involved including the horses. I love happy endings….
