Allyson Nutt of Acorn Arabians writes to share about the new Midwest Egyptian Arabian Horse Alliance's first ever Farm Tour, hosted on May 4th, 2014...
"We had beautiful weather and even more beautiful horses," she says, "A great time was had with an attendance of horse lovers, breeders of both Straight Egyptians and Egyptian Sired, as well as people that compete in the Class A show ring!"
This first farm tour featured Acorn Arabians, Klassic Arabians, and The Arabian Legends farms with Richesin Arabians. Farm owners presented their horses, answered questions, provided refreshments, and had drawings for prizes - including a stud service to The Arabian Legends' stallion Nakhda Karim Shah, won by Marc Reed of Sand Rock Arabians.
"The Pyramid Society graciously provided a Reference Handbook Volume XII which was won by a young lady that had attended the tour in search of a Straight Egyptian stallion for her Straight Egyptian mare!" Allyson shared that the winner of the drawing, Ms. Marissa Stark, is a veterinary student with a desire to breed Straight Egyptians, who found out about the event via Facebook. "We're looking forward to seeing her become a part of the Pyramid Society!"
The new MEAHA group is hosting a Fall Tour in September (watch our Events calendar for more information), with plans to visit some of the Egyptian Arabian farms in the Southern part of their area! Allyson concludes, "We want to thank the Pyramid Society for their support and their donation to MEAHA!"
And we want to thank Allyson and the other dedicated breeders in the Midwest for working hard to introduce the Straight Egyptian Horse to even more people.
