Our Arabian Horses

Safin n Niya and Bahiya Mizan are likely* the last two Arabians in the USA with an unbroken dam Jilfan Sitam al Bulad bloodline. Tradition traces bloodlines and subgroups of horses through the maternal (dam) bloodline back to the original clan and family that bred that strain. These horses have a mother’s bloodline that traces all the way back to Syria to the Jilfan Sitam al Bulad* (also spelled with other variations).
They may* also be one of the last  Jilfan Sitam al Bulad dam tail lines globally.

Niya and Bahiya are also very rare Early American Foundation Arabians. This means all their bloodlines come from horses imported into the USA before 1944. Truly American Arabians. There are fewer than 1000 Early American Foundation Arabians of any bloodline.

Finally, Niya and Bahiya are rare Malabar Arabians.   Malabars are a strain bred for rare black color, good size, strong bodies and above-average calm intelligent minds with strong empathy for humans. These are throwbacks to the original “live in your tent” Arabians from history. There are only about 200 high-percent Malabars remaining and only 3 active breeding farms.

After losing our young stallion in a fire in the fall of 2021, our breeding program was on hold.  With the arrival of SF Obeds Dusk and his companion Destinys Diva, we have resumed breeding with an exciting tweak to our focus.

Dusk has Pulque and Bask in his pedigree and is heavily linebred to Witez II.

Diva is 75% American Foundation Arabian.  She has an outcross to the offspring of 2 Polish imports on her sire’s side and her dam’s sire has a strong percentage of Henry Babson’s Royal Egyptian Stud program.  Nearly all of the rest of her breeding can be considered Crabbet-Maynesboro-Kellogg (CMK) and she has Bask, Gayronek, and Raffles among her ancestors.
