In 1961,

The McCoys clearly loved one over the other. You can see it illustrate in this pic when they chose Ferzon to represent Fersara, but chose to stand Bint Sahara alone rather than bring her new colt named Fadjur to stand beside her. rather than Fadjur who was born three months earlier than Ferzon. They had them priced in the same way. Ferzon was priced at $10,000, while Fadjur was a measly $750. Granny (Marjory F. Tone) loved Fersara t oo, and it prompted her to ask Mr. McCoy if he had any colts like her, at home.....and the rest is history. # GreatMoments # Fadjur # Ferzon "Great Moments" is a feel-good service of EvieInc Equine Social Media. www.EvieInc.net.
... He was working cattle with the best of them. And he actually WAS the best of them at Sid Spencer's ranch, where Sheila learned her foundational horsemanship as a young girl. He was the best cow horse, out of all the Quarter Horses and Morgan horses on the ranch. True to this caption, he would often breed a mare in the morning (live in the pasture, with Sheila riding him bareback with a halter and lead rope and wash bu cket), work on the ranch all day long, then come home and breed another mare that night. If only all men were that lucky... # GreatMoments # BayAbi "Great Moments" is a feel-good service of EvieInc Equine Social Media. www.EvieInc.net
Rashad Ibn Nazeer was part of the very first importation of But he was part of the first importation of Nazeer blood. He arrived in the United States in 1958, along with the first Nazeer daughters, Bint Moniet El Nefous and Bint El Bataa (and two El Sareei daughters). It was the first shipment of Egyptian Arabians to come to the USA since the Babson and W.R. Brown importations in 1932. This shipment encouraged many American breeders to go to E gypt and bring back Arabians - it rekindled the interest in Egyptian Arabians. I always love the stark reminder of just how difficult those trans-Atlantic trips were at the time. This photo says it all...

It was 1945. It was the policy of General Dickinson's Travelers Rest Farm to price all Arabian foals of a sex at a standard price. Colts were priced at $400 at weaning time, and an additional $50 was added to the price every six months until sold. Fillies were priced at $600 at weaning time and $50 was added to the price every six months until sold. Gen. Dickinson made it quite plain in discussing these prices that he did not at any time make an attempt to get a higher price than quoted for these colts even though some may have shown greater quality than others. At this time he was ambitious to have 50 broodmares producing purebred Arabian colts in his stud. In fact, he is quoted as saying, "We believe success depends upon pleasing
In 1984, the richness of our history was displayed for all to see at the Arabian Horse Trust Museum in Westminster, CO. It's Rocky Mountain panorama seemed a majestically fitting backdrop to the museum Arabian horse enthusiasts would travel far and wide to visit and enjoy. However, in 2001 the Arabian Horse Trust closed its doors, and nearly a century was locked in a basement vault. It was a sad day for the Arabian horse community. It felt defeating, sobering... like we'd somehow done a disservice to the breed we love. It's contents hadn't since light since... until November 7, 2007. On that overcast fall day, a meeting was held in that vault that would set a new course for the Arabian breed, as the Purebred
Ronteza was retired at the All-Arabian Summer Horse Show in Monterey, CA. It consistend of a reading of her impressive record, a blanket of roses, a special song called "Ronteza" written just for her, and her weanling colt, Bay Event, that was turned loose in the arena to find his place by his mother's side. It was covered by the Pismo Times newspaper. Here is an excerpt from the article, with Sheila aptly describing the process she and the champion m are went through to get ready for a class. "I never work her up, or wake her up for a class. We simply walk around slowly and leisurely for about 20 minutes before she is due to go int the ring. Tehre are no practice spins or running stops to tune her up. As we walk along, I keep up a
There have been few moments in our breed as great as this one... when a little bay mare named Ronteza and a school teacher named Sheila Varian took on the world and won. Never before – or since – had a woman, an amateur, or an Arabian won the World Reined Cow Horse Championships (i.e. "Winning the World"). Here is the experience, in Sheila's own words: October, 1961 — San Francisco, damp and cold. Ronteza, Mom and I. My father staying home to take care of the ranch. Lightweight division, Ronteza. Heavyweight division — 50 horses going for the title. Ronteza the only Arab, me the only girl. I never noticed. Never walk by the trophy window, don’t look at the trophy saddle and blankets . . .
