Three mares at Ibn Ghurab in 2005

Either me or Hazaim al-Wair took this picture of three Hamdani Simri mares at the stud of ‘Abd al-‘Iyadah al-Dar’aan Ibn Ghurab of the Shammar in 2005. There were 15-20 mares all in all. The one in the center was my favorite of the lot, and the one on the right was the sister of the stallion al-A’awar, who was bred there. The house is that of his son Jamal, who took over the stud at his father’s death a couple years after our visit. They teared up when we read *Jedah’s hujjah to them. She was from their marbat, and was imported to the USA 99 years before our visit.
