Here is another historic pic. Do you recognize this horse?
He is Idrees
(Adeeb x Bint El Nil by Anter x Sharzada), a stallion born in Egypt in 1981 and imported by Heiner Buschfort to Germany in 1982.
His dam died shortly after his birth, so he had a tough start into the world.
As he arrived he was all skin and bones and Heiner Buschfort gave him
time enough to settle in and get accustomed to the new conditions in Germany. Despite all efforts Idrees
was a stallion who never gained weight. All of his life he was trim and slender, a condition I liked very much. Douglas B. Marshall once came to Heiner Buschfort's farm and commented how much Idrees
resembled Morafic in type and condition. The same slender body, the same high-set eyes, the long upright neck and last but not least the same disposition – very alert, proud and very dominant. Idrees
wasn't a "show" horse, he was a true Arabian horse that showed his essence when running free. No one could help but fall in love with him when he began to move.Idrees
was licensed and got a premium but sadly left just two foal crops before his untimely death in the mid-eighties. His half-brother Kasr El Nile (Tuhotmos x Bint El Nil) had the same exquisite movements and his dam Sharzada was a full-sister to Dalul's dam Dawlat – "flying without wings" runs in the family.
