The Egyptian Influence
The world of breeding Straight Egyptian Arabians is both creative and romantic with a strong adherence to guidelines, a common mission shared by breeders, a commitment to patience, and a constant pursuit of knowledge.
My love for the Egyptian Arabian has been with me since my beginnings with horses. The more I read about them, the more I wanted to know.
As time went on my interest became much stronger, and I began looking for people with the same interest and spirit as I.
One of the main reasons I became interested in breeding Egyptian bloodlines was the Straight Egyptian stallion, Ansata Ibn Halima (Nazeer x Halima).
He made a strong impression on me, furthered my interest, and inspired me to find out more about Straight Egyptian bloodlines.
I have spent years gathering the knowledge needed to create my stud and breeding program.
However, I believe you can never learn enough. It is a continual process, a life long journey.
Ansata Ibn Halima is the image I have in my mind when planning my breeding program.
This classic beauty is for me a timeless Arabian horse. I have him in my mind always as a reminder and focus.
He gives me the inspiration to breed something that is my vision going forward, while never forgetting the history.
A dream came true when I was given the opportunity to purchase the black Straight Egyptian mare, Queen Latifah CA ( Thee Desperado x Minstrils Gabriela) from Steve and Mauri Chase of Chase Arabians.
She is the full sister to the prolific and treasured black mare Queen Sheeba, dam of 2006 Egyptian Event Senior and Supreme Champion Mare Farreesa CA by Farres (Anaza El Farid x Shameerah).
About 10 years later I also purchased a filly by embryo transfer, Amira Al Halima CA by Ansata Sheikh Halim (Ansata Hejazi x Ansata Samiha) and out of Queen Sheeba.
Although I had to wait a few years for her arrival to Sweden, she brings the addition of the Ansata breeding lines, most notably through the famous stallion Ansata Ibn Halima.
As a young girl, I would study pedigrees and found that I was attracted to many horses with his name and bloodline.
My impression was strong at that time and remains the same to this day.
The cooperation between Don and Judith Forbis of Ansata Arabian Stud and Steve and Mauri Chase of Chase Arabians to preserve the classic Straight Egyptian Arabian horse has been very insightful.
The perception I have in breeding has closely mirrored these breeder’s opinions; my vision and pursuit of knowledge has been inspired by them.
My focus is to also preserve the Straight Egyptian Arabian horse while continuing to breed these lines into the future.
I am grateful for the shared mission among Straight Egyptian breeders all over the world and look forward to the coming years.
The lesson I value most, I have learned from my mother Lena.
“ Do you know the history? Then you know the future.”
