I am so sorry to hear this too. But was it not "Al amin" (1991) or am I making an error?

My sincere sympathy to the owners

Hansi, it was the lovely bay Belgian-bred stallion El Amin (Psytadel/RA Cool Elygance), born 2001. A very nice horse, may he rest in peace, poor fellow. His new owner in Iran is naturally terribly upset as he loved the horse as much for his kind temperament as for his beauty and potential future foals. Unfortunately although most of the owners there are excellent horsemen and very knowledgeable, some parts of Iran seem to have a shortage of experienced equine veterinarians, and no clinics with colic surgery facilities such as we are lucky enough to have in western countries, so if something does go wrong, and it can happen anywhere as we know, a colic operation which might otherwise save the horse is not an option. Sadly, more than one exported stallion has died there from colic, I think they may have problems adjusting to the different managament and feeding systems. Not blaming anyone, just stating a fact. Local-bred horses are used to the conditions, being brought up with them, and some live into their 30's.

Yes I know. We tried to get medication to Mary via Jordan to them years ago. (rRosemary Doyle, Sheikha Lulua and I )
Yes, climate change, feed etc makes a huge difference, and I am so sorry they lost tthis good stallion.
Indeed we are so lucky to have adequate Veterinarian facilities.

thanks for stating data on this horse, for a moment I thought it was the American Al Amin, a super performance stallion.

Take care
Hansi
