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.
