    ArAbIAn HorsE HealtH Young foals require special attention and proper feeding to ensure their development, health, and future performance. But their dams also need to be monitored and properly fed, especially during weaning which is stressful for both mare and foal.

    ArAbIAn HorsE Culture El Zahraa, die Egyptian State Stud at Cairo, is the guardian of the heritage of the breeding program begun by Abbas Pasha I in the early 19th century. It is the source of all straight Egyptian breeding today and an inspiration to those who visit it.

    ArAbIAn HorsE reSearCH Not all horses of the Dahman Shahwan strain trace to El Dahma. The “other” Dahman family, tracing to the foundation mare Bint El Bahreyn, is the only Egyptian family based on a tap root mare from Bahreyn and has also been highly influential.

    ArAbIAn HorsE NeWS The International Arabian Horse Festival of Kuwait for the first time combined an ECAHO B-Show, and Egyptian Event, an art exhibition and stud presentations in an event that was a huge success and drew visitors from all parts of the world.

    An EVEnT noT To bE MIssEd

    From Feb. 15th to 18th 2012, Kuwait’s state stud bait Al Arab hosted the First International -b show for Arabian Horses and also for the first time a two day Egyptian Event on its spacious and well prepared show ground. This new concept for the annual show event seemed to be greatly

    appreciated by the breeders and owners greatly as the number of horses entered into the show was high: 184 horses for the b-show, 223 for the Egyptian Event. As in Kuwait approximately 65% of the Arabian horses are from straight Egyptian bloodlines, it is apt to have a separate

    competition for this group. yet the two competitions overlapped nicely: there were horses that competed in both events and, moreover, there was equal support and enthusiasm for both parts. In short: it was four days of celebrating the beauty and heritage of the Arabian horse.

    d ue to the extraordinarily good organization, the show ran smoothly inspite of the large number of horses in

    most of the classes and the subsequently narrow time table. both events attracted a large number of spectators right from the very first class up to the last. There were also many guests from countries like saudi Arabia, Qatar, bahrain, the uAE, Egypt, Jordan, usA, Canada, new Zealand and several European countries. The whole event had a very special - and especially for the foreign guests most impressive - atmosphere. Although winning is a wonderful success and was celebrated adequately, it was clearly not what this show was all about. The sheer appearance of many horses was cheered

    enthusiastically not only by owners, breeders, and family, but also by fellow breeders and friends. Good placings would be celebrated almost just as much as wins - so it was all about sharing joy and pride within the community of Arabian horse lovers. This included well known breeders climbing onto their chairs to cheer. It felt like a get together of friends rather than a tough competition. Typically Kuwait, one might say. nevertheless it was a strong competition, because the quality was high. The judges - Mrs. Anna stojanowska (pL), Mr. Hassanain Al nakeeb (Gb), Mr. Jaroslaw Lacina (CZ), Mr. Tamas rombauer (Hun) and dr. Manfred neubacher (Aus) - had a hard time selecting the best horses in the classes and in the championships.
