Mlolshaan Hager Solomon, photos taken September 2010 by Jenny Krieg. The body shot has had the tack removed by retouching, but the conformation of the horse has not been altered.

Solomon, 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, 2003gm ,  was bred 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 also the code orange line of *Sunshine, *Tiara and *Nufoud.   In 2014 Thank Heaven foaled a grey mare, Mi Blue Heaven  by DB Khrush a 1997gs bred by Rodger and Mimi Davis of Illinois and of Sa'aud  bloodlines.   As of this writing Thank Heaven is currently owned by Monica Respet of Pennsylvania and Mi Blue Heaven is owned by Laura Fitz of Michigan.  Monica plans to breed Thank Heaven for a second foal.

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.   This Solomon daughter,  Ubayyat Al-Bahrain  2011gm,  is currently owned by PJ Altshuler and her huband Marwan Abusoud of Texas.

By a Kuhaylan Kurush out of a Saqlawiyah Ubayriyah of the marbat of Muharib al-Kharraz of al-Makathirah section of the Fid’an tribe.


*Azra AHA #32—Davenport Ancestral Element, 1903 grey Saqlawi Ubayri stallion bred by the al-Makathirah section of the Fid’an, purchased from Ali al-Rashid, Shaykh of the Bu Khamis and imported in 1906 to the USA by Homer Davenport.

azra-believed-to-be← Believed to be *Azra, Said Abdallah riding

This information (except for the importation data) is from a translation of *Azra's hujjah, below. The information is consistent with that in *Azra's entry in the 1909 Arabian Horse Club stud book, which adds the breeder, and with the Davenport 1909 catalog, which says that *Azra's sire was of the family of "Maharib el Hazziz of the Muqathra," that *Azra's breeder was "Mesoud el Kashish," and that *Azra was purchased from Shaykh Ali of the "Abagonese." In Davenport's book My Quest of the Arabian Horse, describing the purchase of *Azra, Davenport writes that *Azra was bred by Shaykh Ali of the "Abu Gomese" and that his sire was an 'Ubayyan Sharrak. The strain information about the sire in Davenport's book disagrees with what is given in *Azra's hujjah, the AHC stud book, and the Davenport 1909 catalog. Entry #1061 for *Azra in the Raswan Index shows the same information as the stud book and the Davenport 1909 catalog with the following elaborations: *Azra is shown as sired by a Kuhaylan Kurush of "Muharib Ibn Hazza Al-Bughayz of the Muqathra" section of the Fid'an tribe out of a Saqlawiyah Ubayriyah of "Ibn Bughayz of the Muqathra and bred by Mesoud El Qayshish of the Muqathra."

Sire of 6 foals: Joon 1921 gs out of Dahura, Hegra 1922 gm out of Domow, Ah Ben 1924 gs out of Dahura, Ahamed 1925 gs out of Domow, Abu-Selim 1926 bs out of Domow and Zenee 1928 bm out of Domow. ~ Al Khamsa Arabians III entry.

Joon (*Azra x Dahura)

*Azra hujjah

After these [blessings], I do know that the grey horse, which is three years of age nearing four, he is Saglawi Ubayri, and his sire is Kuhaylan Kurush, and the origin of the breed of these horses is with Muharib al-Kharraz from the tribe of al-Makathirah [itself] from the section of al-Khrisah which are associated with the Sheykh Mizwad al-Ku'ayshish, [he is] free from all defects, and we witness to what we know and do not keep [information] about the unknown. Dated 15 August 1906, signed and sealed by The Shaykh of the Bu Khamis Ali al-Rashid. Concerning Ali al-Rashid [he is] just and his testimony is acceptable, signed and sealed by the acting chief of the Arabs of 'Anazah Hakim Beg Ibn Mhayd. The testimony of the above-mentioned is acceptable, signed and sealed by Ahmad al-Hafiz.

Notes: The al-Ku'wayshish are the Shaykhs of one of the largest subsections of the Fid'an, the al-Khrisah, and as such are seen as rivals to the Mhayds. They are superior horse breeders, and the Khrisah section was very well endowed in Asils in general. You can use 'tied to' instead of 'associated with' to express the relation between Muharib al-Kharraz and his Shaykh. ~ Edouard Al-Dahdah, 2005

The mare *Jamalah El Jedrani is the sole representative of two Foundation Horses: Walid El Saglawi (ARA) and Bedowia El Hamdani (ARA).

Jamalah-El-Jedrani2 (1)

Mrs. Marie Frances Richards lived in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, for thirteen years, associated with ARAMCO, and obtained a mare shortly after her arrival there that she bred to a stallion owned by a friend. She imported a daughter of this mating to the United States. The term RICHARDS is used as an Ancestral Element and applies to Mrs. Richards' original mare and the stallion to which she was bred.


← Dam: Bedowia El Hamdani (ARA) 1946 grey Hamdaniyah Simriyah mare of al-Hasa provice purchased by Marie Frances Richards in 1950 in Saudi Arabia.This information is from the Government identification document signed by Mrs. Richards. All information on this mare is from Mrs. Richards, who owned this mare in Saudi Arabia and imported her daughter *Jamalah El Jedrani to the USA from Arabia.
Walid-El-SeglawiSire: Walid El Seglawi (ARA) 1945 grey Saqlawi stallion bred by Hassan Mansur al-Sihati of Dhahran, Saudi Arabia and purchased by Nick Lederle from the breeder. By a Saqlawi of the Bani Khalid out of a Saqlawiyah of the Bani Khalid. →

The identification of the brand on Bedowia's neck, identified by Mrs. Richards as a government brand, is clarified by Sam Roach, courtesy of Edie Booth. Mr. Roach identified the brand (a circle with a vertical line through it) as the brand of the King, HRH Sa'ud Ibn Abdul Aziz. The slash mark brands on both flanks were a treatment for colic, or more likely to keep the horse from rolling during colic.

The above information is from recent translation of a hujjah for Walid El Seglawi from his breeder. The information agrees with the documents in the Arabian Horse Association import file for *Jamalah El Jedrani.

The mare *Samirah is one of two representatives of the 1931 importation by Chicago businessman Albert Harris.

Harris imported four desert-bred mares from Arabian ruler Abd al-Aziz Ibn Saud, through Mohammad Abd al-Ra'uf, Consul of the Sultanate of Najd and Hijaz in Beirut (this Sultanate would take the name of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the following year of 1932), assisted by the Lebanese poet Amin Rihani. Three of the four left Al Khamsa descendants here in the USA. More about the other two in the future.


The Albert Harris Mares

*Samirah AHA #851—Sa'ud Ancestral Element, 1925 grey Hamdaniyah Simriyah mare bred by the Sa'ud Royal Family and imported in 1931 to the USA by Albert Harris.

The above information is from *Samirah's Saudi export document and Arabian Horse Association importation records. *Samirah's entry in Arabian Horse Club Stud Book Vol. IV p125 shows the same information. Dam of 6 foals, including four Al Khamsa foals. [Al Khamsa Arabians III]



*Samirah still has a very thin line that has been the focus of a number of courageous, almost desperate preservation efforts over the last forty years. The result is that the tail female line still goes on, albeit barely.

Two of *Samirah's daughters left Al Khamsa progeny: Koweyt (by Alcazar) and Kerasun (by *Sunshine, imported to the USA in utero in the same importation). The mare Koweyt produced a daughter, Konight, by the Kuhaylan al-'Ajuz stallion Kaniht (Katar x Niht). Konight in turn produced the mare Ameera Moda, by a Kuhaylan al-'Ajuz from another line: Fa-Turf (*Fadl x *Turfa). According to the Al Khamsa Roster, there are only three mares left from this branch of *Samirah's family (Sha Princess, Kali Maa EEE, Bint Bint Moda), all in their mid-twenties and none of them of with recorded Al Khamsa progeny.

There is a little glimmer of hope remaining for the second line to *Samirah, through Kerasun. Kerasun in turn had two daughters, both bred by Albert Harris: Kaleta (by Alcazar) and Karamia (by Kulun, a Kuhaylan al-'Ajuz stallion from really old bloodlines tracing to *Nedjme). Through Kaleta runs a very thin line high in desert bred blood straight from Najd and the Syrian desert, with the arrows indicating a mother-to-daughter link: Kaleta to her daughter Faleta (by Ibn Fadl, another Kuhaylan al-'Ajuz and a son of the desert, his dam being *Turfa) to Faleta's daughter Peta by the Kuhaylan al-Hayf Lysander, from the Davenport bloodlines to Peta's 1985 daughter Halley, by the Kuhaylan al-Hayf stallion Audobon, another Davenport. Halley is 24 years old now, and a treasured mare, but has never been bred. One can see the hand of the late Carol Lyons behind the breeding that resulted in Halley, first because Carol used to own the magnificent Audubon, and second because she was trying to preserve the very, very few remaining horses with no Blunt/Crabbet bloodlines in them, of which Halley is one. These horses Carol called Sharp (a play on words, as sharp and blunt are opposites). Halley and the line through Karamia provides what is probably the only chance of keeping this line alive within Al Khamsa. Line-breeding has been done by Randall and Mary Sue Harris and granddaughter Stephanie Theinert, so their horses are double and triple *Samirah. [Edouard al Dahdah]
