thank you very much for the kindest words about my precious stallion HA Sharif and my finger on play button of my camera !!!!
Indeed HA Sharif lives free, always with his herd of mares so he is always happy to explain to the world his herd-sire status.
But the power of the Matala Bint Marah is still continuing.... This time the third generation came out.
Here you can see two pics. of the last son of HA Sharif, out my super mare Mahomeeh. This colt is Halypa Mansour, he is born on March 5, 2012 and here he is on his second day of life. As usual we don't clip our horses. Mother Nature wants a lot of hairs for the foals....And a smart breeder knows how to look and understand the foal......
Mahomeeh is a concentrate of old aristocratic blood, of which, here in Europe, we are missed. I'm asking myself who will have the courage of maintain these bloodlines here in Europe ? Who will have the courage to not sell, as the low markets quality, everything, including books and culture, (and that the shame of selling books is a very serious problem) ?
Here in Italy few breeders, still full of passion and love, with immense sacrifices they go ahead, they don't sell the mares, they don't sell the great fillies to a inconclusive market, they don't go to the dirty dealers to sell the unwanted males. (We geld them and maintain them to train them to saddle).
The Arabian horse, in Western world has a long, precious tradition and we must have the duty not to throw it in the garbage 200 years of breeding. We must remember that if it were not for our passion , in the West, the Arabian horse, in its purity, would be lost ..
So, enjoy of our horses, let's go in the barns and pastures and fall in love again of our dreams. We give them a thousand caresses. Life is always hard, but our horses are our future.
Many greeting to all.
I wish there was a "like" button here.
