Kuhaylat al-Kraay from Bahrain

The discussion about the blood marks on the bodies of grey Arabian horses elicited the most reactions this week.  Readers shared photos of Asil Arabian horses from different breeding groups (Bahraini, Davenport, Egyptian, “modern” Syrian, and Saudi) with bloodmarks on their shoulders and bellies.  These pictures serve as reminders that regardless of the artificial breeding categories in which breeders have sought to put them, these horses are all one.  They are all Asil.

Thanks to Jenny Lees for this photo of an Asil Kuhaylat al-Kraay at the Royal Studs of Bahrain with the blood mark on her shoulder.. I will be blogging more about such fun topics, showing pictures whenever possible.

  1. Are there any Excellent Asil Stallions here in the United States from Bahrain that one can have his mares bred too?If so could you give me names and addresses or email addresses to contact owners about breedings. Thank you

  2. *Mlolshaan Hager Solomon, a 1986, grey stallion is a truly unique example of Asil stallion from Bahrain. He is registered by Al Khamsa. He is in Michigan in the ownership of Bill Biel, but I don’t have the contact information of his owner.

  3. I was wondering if you have any information about Arabian stallion Chef Kaslo. I believe that he was chestnut sabino and that due to that my stallion now has a bloodmark on his belly.

    If you do have any information will you kindly email it to me. chantellemstimie@gmail.com

  4. Chantelle,

    arabdatasource.com does not show a purebred Arabian stallion with the word “Kaslo” in his name, so there’s not much we can say.
