2009 The Year of the Colt ...
Baariyah foaled a bay (grey) colt by Imperial Shehaab on May 23rd. We were very pleased with his quality and he showed a lot of promise to be a top show contender with his short, chisled head and big black eyes combined with lots of charisma, cockiness, and confidence. He was sold to Al-Jenan Farm and Stud Kuwait and not only showed well at the 2010 Egyptian Event but also at the 2011 Kuwait National Show. Click here for his foal video. The surprise of the breeding season was the arrival of the twin colts by Imperial Mistaar x Azaamah on June 19th. Born bay (grey) and chestnut, these two siblings were strong and healthy from birth and were raised naturally by their mother along with receiving a healthy ration of foal feed. and also in a Russian all breed magazine. The Arabian Magazine, The Arabian Horse World in the September issue of Arabhorse.com. They were also featured in the Arkansas all The Horsemen's Roundup Magazine.

A 4th colt would have been born here in 2009 to Imperial Sabreia who was sold to a breeder in Bahrain while in foal. She delivered a grey colt by AmirAlKamar for her new owner who was very pleased with his new addition. Words of wisdom ....breed for a great colt... pray for a filly!

2014 Foaling season ...
There is nothing more rewarding than when breeding season goes as planned, mares get in foal right away, pregnancies progress without a hitch, and rock star foals are born the next season without any adverse events along the way. We all know as breeders that this is not always the case but when it happens, we breathe a long sigh of relief, thank GOD for miracles and hope for a great future for that individual.
We have been very fortunate to have bred some quality foals over the past 15 years, each one leaves a little hoof print on your heart when they leave. Azaamah had an amazing filly by Aziim Al Amaar, and are thrilled with this little firecracker. Azaamah has been an outstanding producer of both colts and fillies - read more
Update: Azizah Z was sold to Saudi Arabia. Congrats to her new owners.
We wish them the best with this amazing filly.
2013 Another Great Colt for Baariyah ...
Baariyah foaled her 3rd colt in June, sired by Shaheen Al Waab. He was born on the night of the super moon! Shazaam came into the world with the "wow" factor. Very pretty and strong, he is the first of our Platinum Performance babies. We are impressed daily with how he is
growing and maturing. With a beautiful face, big black
eyes, and showy attitude, he will be a strong show
contender and future sire.
UPDATE: Congrats to the new owners of Shazaam Z!
Shazaam was shown to Silver Champion at Scottsdale
by Greg Hazelwood in the Egyptian Heritage Class.
He has also earned a Class A Jr. Champion title, both
with Tara Carpio Arabians.
2017 Breeding plans ...
Two special breedings are planned for this year, and we are super excited for the future foals of Azaamah and *Shyna Al Atiq, (Simeon Shavvot x Imperial Safillla) on lease from our dear friend Anne-Louise Toner. Azaamah will be bred to Latif KA (Marquis I x Aidahh, (Maknificent KA, x MB Masaleena, by Imperial Madheen). This lovely stallion is very refined and feminine and his outcross TF is to
Amal Albadeia, bred by master breeder and friend Dr. Nasr Marei. After seeing him in person at Sonrisa Farms last year, our choice was validated. He is such a lovely stallion with type, trot, temperament and a stellar pedigree.
Shyna Al Atiq will be bred to Maknificent KA, who we have admired for many years. This will be Shyna's first foal. Maknificent KA
(Maksous x Star Bint Hafiza (Ibn Dahman x AK Amiri Fayrouz, by TheEgyptianPrince). Maknificent KA is a US Top Five Colt, Reg. 9 Champion Sweepstakes Colt, was a Jr. Champion and Top Five in Yearling Futurity Champion Colt. Aside from his stellar show record, his production record is outstanding, siring champions around the globe! He is a sight to behold, bold and beautiful with a lovely temperament.
We are really looking forward to seeing this future foal.
The famous twins sired by Imperial Mistaar x Azaamah) received global attention as they were featured in The Arabian Magazine, Europe; as well as a few other publications including one in Russia.
Zaahir Staar, the grey prince earned a top five Futurity Colt honor at the 2011 Egyptian Event for his owner Salayel Arabians, KSA. He was later sold to a breeder in China.
Zaim Staar resides in Missouri and is a riding gelding and companion for Janasse Martin who adores him.
