I am really happy for my parents and their decision! They were on the look out for a stallion to cross on the PWA Nagib Shah daughters that we have retained. And look what we found... We feel that Imtaarif's Heir genetics will be stellar addition to our small breeding program. We have been attracted to the combination of Ansata Halim Shah and Imtaarif/Imperial Imdal breeding.
Imtaarif was an own son of Imperial Imdal and out of a daughter of *Moatasim and Bint Deenaa. Imtaarif was a very successful show horse. He was shown in 25 Class A Shows and walked away with a Champion or Reserve Champion ribbon at each one. Imtaarif also garnered the title of Egyptian Event Reserve Senior Champion Stallion beating a stallion that won at Salon du Cheval-Paris and the National Cup Championship. Imtaarif held the title of Top Ranking Sire of Champions for 12 years in a row creating quite a legacy. Imtaarif's progeny have went on to be successful show horses and producers all across the world.
Ann Heiress was a Egyptian Event Top Five and Class A Champion...and produced champion progeny. Ann Heiress is an own daughter of the VP Regal Heir son, Heirogance owned by Nayla Hayek of Hanaya Stud. Heirogance was Junior Champion Colt at the Egyptian Event Europe 2000. Ann Heiress is out of Aniya, the dam of Imell, a *Ibn Moniet El Nefous daughter out of a Kayed daughter.
Heir is special stallion! He brings his stunning height of 15.3 hands, super long arched neck, flat topline and croop, nice straight legs and disposition to our breeding program. His first foal was born at our farm July 2014 out of one of our best daughters of PWA Nagib Shah, who is out of an Ansata Abu Sudan daughter...can we say beautiful! We have a lot of anticipation for this cross of bloodlines in the future!
...where a fascination with art, ancient Egyptian culture and genetics has come together! Variety adds spice to life!
