Here at Avalon Mist Arabians we are breeding to
preserve the Straight Egyptian, Al Khamsa, Sheykh Obeyd Arabian. All Sheykh Obeyd
Arabian horses trace back to horses bred by Abbas Pasha, The Blunts, Ali Pasha Sherif, Prince Ahmed Pasha
Kemal, Ahmed Bey Sennari, Khedive Abbas II, and the Royal Agricultural Society, under
Dr. Branch and are able to trace all lines to the desert bred Arabian.
After researching many of the bloodlines and utilizing
resources available to us here at Avalon Mist Arabians we continue to preserve and
breed these incredible animals that these seven breeders worked so hard to preserve. Guided
by the strict breeding practices of the Bedouins and using our source bloodlines, we breed for a very
versatile, athletic, conformationally correct horse that has the mind and soul of
the true "tent" horse and shows the classic Arabian type.
Our pedigrees, many just two generations out of
the desert, concentrate Sirecho, Ansata Ibn Halima, a touch of Moniet El Nefous, and
contain a strong Babson influence. After falling in love with the Babsons, we have included a Straight
Babson stallion to further concentrate those lines. Some of our mares also contain the prized Bukra blood that is so potent in producing that incredible Dahman head with extreme dish
and prominent Jibbah.
On a small side, I have an affinity for Tuhotmos
breeding, as my first love was the incredible El Mon Moniet, double Tuhotmos stallion of Caryn Rogosky. In memory of this beautiful being, there shall be an element of Tuhotmos in
the breeding program.
In the end we do not breed just a horse, but a
friendly, caring, attention starved individual whose passion, strength, intelligence, and devotion can bring tears to anyone's eyes in a swell of emotion that can only be evoked by
such a creature.
