Solomon, obviously still handsome and vital and owned by Bill Biel in Michigan, is the only asil stallion straight from Arabia Deserta in the US—i.e., one who was actually born there.
Thank Heaven is owned by Catherine Fye of Michigan. She is not only rare because of being by Solomon, she is also rare because she contains the Ayerza Ancestral Element, and will appear in that article in the future.
In 2010, Jenny Krieg of Maryland partnered with Rodger Davis of Illinois to send two of the Davis mares to be bred to Solomon. Both mares descended from modern desert breeding. One mare lost her foal, but DB Kalila (AAS El Hezzez x Desert Kalila by *Furtha Dhelall), a 2002 'Ubayyah of Saudi lines going in tail female to *Mahraa of Prince Saudi Ibn Ibn 'Abdallah Ibn Jalawi produced a filly for Jenny Krieg. Photos of both Thank Heaven and the 2011 filly will be added soon.
