Anyone who can share any information of the whereabouts of Akkhir
(Amaal x Ana Gayah). I know he was bred at Gleannloch Farms and
then sold to the Trapps and later was resold.
Any information about him and his get? Is he still alive? Photos to share?

Hi Oliver:
I may be incorrect, but last time I asked Pat about Akkhir I was told that he was with Bruce Genz and John Arndt in Wisconsin at Sherayn Arabians.

their last e-mail that I have for them is:

Told by Mr Trapp:

Arabest Awadi (Akkhir X Halifah) was the best colt they ever produced.

Yes Oliver, I have seen Akkhir several times in the past. The last time I saw him, however was in 1992 or 1993 when Fred Cox and Mick Marth /Maple Crest still had him.

I'm sure that others have had a more current look at him:)

Akkhir is a well-conformed stallion with exceptional movement. His head is pleasant, but not what I would call deeply dished. The Trapp's sold several of his foals to South Africa--All that I saw were very well put together and had his big movement. Also very pretty headed, but that could have come from the beautiful Nabiel daughters that the Trapp's had. Tarik was a colt that went overseas who very soon after became junior champion stallion of South Africa. I saw Akkhir on several occasions, and his disposition was completely different from the first to the last. The first time (at a stable in Lake Geneva) it was obvious he hadn't been out of his stall for quite some time and was a "handful." The last time was at the Midwest Horse Fair in Wisconsin where he was hanging his head over the stall and allowing children to pat his nose. I think he's a horse that needs to be kept busy. I believe that he was shown in native costume as well as some other classes.

Oliver:
I have sent you a small photo via e-mail of Akkhir in Native Costume, I do not know who the photographer is.

BettyK: Those Midwest horse fairs were some of the best, with all those Egyptians and Egyptian-relateds all in a row:) Were you at the one where Fred and Mick had Akkhir's stall done up with the columns and the whole nine yards:)

Akkhir passed away this year due to colic.

Solita,

I'm not sure if that was the year we were at the Midwest Horse Fair or not--in fact, now that I think about it, the show I'm thinking about may have been one of the regular Wisconsin shows held in Madison...the Trapp's had Akid Geshan there, and Bill and Pat had put up their authentic tent with all the trappings (no pun intended!)--the last time they did so. It was like no show *I'd* ever been to...even the food was fantastic! They had a great stallion review also... You have some great photos of Akkhir--I recognize the trellis on the Trapp's barn on the '89 photo! I've wondered if he was still around...sorry to hear that he's not as he generally produced better than himself.
