|Hadidi February 22, 1990 - July 24, 2017||Sep 13th 2017||
Hadidi (Norus x Hebet Allah)
February 22, 1990 - July 24, 2017
Everywhere his footsteps fell, a hero's welcome was waiting for him. Hadidi, the final torchbearer of Gleannloch's legacy, wrote his name in hsitory's book as one of the most accomplished and decorated Straight Egyptian Arabian stallions of all time. Even so, it is sad that a hero's strength is measured by his heart, and as such, Hadidi's strength was simply beyond measure.
|The Passing of Ansata Nile Echo||Sep 8th 2017||
BEAUTY IS ITS OWN EXCUSE FOR BEING - and he was beautiful in many ways. We regret the passing of ANSATA NILE ECHO. It seems like yesterday that he was a yearling at Ansata, and moved on to Qatar to found a dynasty there. He could literally "trot a hole in the wind" and was often referred to as the King of Trot. A magnificent son of his father, Ansata Hejazi, his legacy in Arabian horse histrory is assured.
