The Praying Mare

"...always pray and not give up.."-Luke 18:1 "I am really worried about her. She doesn't socialize with the rest of the horses in her group. It's as if she has lost interest in everything, even the things she used to enjoy. I mean, I used to catch her alone sometimes but I just thought that she needed some space, some down time, away from the younger horses. But now, look at her, doesn't she look depressed? She prefers to stand alone in the far corner of the pasture, away from all the other horses." said my friend, as she agonized over her beloved mare. "Do you think she is not happy anymore ..read more

"HALLMARK" can mean different things, depending on the use of the word within a sentence. However, the "common ground" between all the definitions is another word: "distinguishing". Used in conjunction with our breed, "HALLMARK" are those distinguishing characteristics that identify a horse as "ARABIAN", as compared to other breeds of horses. What are the hallmarks of the Arabian breed? Last week or rather, in the last blog I posted concerning the stallion, Nile, I mentioned this book: This is the Standard of Excellence, published by The Pyramid Society in 2012. If you don't own the book, I ..read more

Seemingly out of nowhere, I found this photo. I was looking for something else and Google offered the Pinterest photo in their list of recommendations. I'm not a fan of Pinterest and the site makes it difficult to look at the photos without creating a profile but my oh my, what a horse! I have been reading the Standard of Excellence, published by The Pyramid Society and this particular horse, embodies much of what I read in the booklet and then, understood, with regard to type, balance, quality and substance. I haven't been able to think of anything else since finding the photo. Why would an ..read more

Happy Birthday Windy Bey V

I'm not sure that I remember how I managed to get to the Varian Arabians website or what motivated me to click on their stallion page (I don't own a mare, open for breeding) but I am glad that I did it, because there he was, Windy Bey V, a 1999 son of Desperado V (Huckleberry Bey V x Daraska), out of Willow Bey V (S-Shah Bask x Gypsy Mmusic). Do you realize that a horse born in 1999 means that today, in 2024, the 1999 horse is 25 years old? And check out those dapples! WOWOWOW! Back in the day, I understood dappling to be a sign of good nutrition, including nutraceuticals to supplement the h ..read more

A long time ago, I kept my mare in a field with a couple Thoroughbred racehorses. There was one mare in particular, Rocky, who took my breath away whenever I saw her run. The other horses tried to keep up with her and pretty soon, Rocky would lap them once, twice and then, three times. Adrenaline coursing through my body, I felt the sheer power of Rocky's massive body. In her joy and freedom, she wasn't holding anything back. She was invincible. Run, Rocky, run!  I had blogged about Pepita a few years ago, in 2019. Bred by Janow Podlaski stud, Pepita is a 2005 Ekstern daughter out ..read more

This past week, Tutto Arabi released their April-May Edition, which includes an article written by Dr. Hans J. Nagel. His stallion, NK Nadeer (NK Hafid Jamil x NK Nadirah) recently died. I was touched by Dr. Nagel's use of the word "noble" to describe his beloved horse.  "This was NK Nadeer; a truly noble horse, trusting, with a kind character, without falseness, full of temperament and fiery when given the opportunity."  NK Nadeer (NK Hafid Jamil x NK Nadirah), as photographed by Joanna Jonientz Given that we all understand the straight Egyptian ancestral elements th ..read more

D Khair (BS Raeed x Magic Mon Amour) I was looking through the Jadem Arabians Stallions Guide, which is a beautiful publication by the way, as published by Tutto Arabi this past week. The Jadem facility is impressive, as are the many services offered to the prospective breeder. There are 17 stallions presented in the Guide, including the spectacular Emerald J (QR Marc x Emandoria). However, it was the 13th stallion in the book that was an unexpected but joyful surprise for me: D Khair (BS Raeed x Magic Mon Amour), owned by Alhmoud Stud. Do you know that he's a maternal sibling of the ..read more

THE STALLION FROM THE LAND OF MANU

Born to Reign, written by Judith Forbis, came at a time in my life when I was more open to the writings of Carl Raswan. Actually, it was something that Judith Forbis wrote about Ansata Delilah in the book that caught my attention and then held it, long enough for me to connect a dotted line between what she wrote in the book and 2 Carl Raswan articles published by Western Horseman magazine. I was fascinated with the subject, however, life and all that comes with it, soon pushes such things out of my "headspace" and soon, I forget. That is, until this week and  an email I received from An ..read more

The Abu Dhabi edition of the GCAT series of shows was held this past weekend, in the Etihad Arena at Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The time difference between countries makes watching some of these shows a little more challenging. Many thanks to Arabian Essence TV, who makes the videos from all the shows available on their YouTube channel, thereby providing the opportunity to watch the Senior Mare Championship (SMC) class at a more convenient time.  I have to confess to you that really, the compelling reason to watch this class was all about the charm of the thu ..read more
