On December 15, 2011, the Arabian horse community lost one of its most remarkable friends - Don Morse of Freeport, Illinois and Scottsdale, Arizona. Don, together with his beloved wife Janey, owned Oak Ridge Arabians, home of numerous national champions and prized Arabian horses.
Athala Arabians is located in north Scottsdale, Arizona. It is easy to see why partners Athala King and Dr. Maureen McCormack chose to have a farm here. As you look across the desert landscape to picturesque McDowell Mountain and nearby Tonto National Forest, it is breathtaking.
In late summer of 2011, Silver Maple Farm welcomed the stallion Khaled KA, owned by Mr. Wael Solyman of Elamira Stud in Alexandria, Egypt.
