The Summer Classic show sponsored by the Georgia Arabian Horse Association was great fun. Â Lily of ParadiseÂ (Thee Desperado x Lily Langtry HG) won the SE Senior Mare halter class and championship along with the Amateur to Handle Class with Ms. Sue Ward at the lead. Â Her bunkmate, El Razeel Al Ameen (Pimlico RCA x Noir Desir by Alixir), performed in Dressage Training Level 1 & 2 for the first time bringing home the Reserve and Third place honors. Â The show was held at the beautiful International Horse Park in Conyers, GA. Â It was a fun time and the horses gained valuable show experience in addition to their lovely ribbons and wins. Â Thanks to our great trainer, Vanessa Koper-Hanscom, for all her support and handling and to our great friends Sue Ward, of Blue Sky Arabians, and Mr. Cole of Belvedere Farms for showing Ms. Lily to her wins.

August 25th 2011 is not only my daughter’s 20th birthday but it is also the birthday of our latest foal here at Al Ameen. Â Our wonderful mare, Gazaala, presented us with a fabulous colt early this morning. Â The little man arrived at 6:45 am and promptly began to show us that he is important, smart, and doesn’t need to be taught anything–he’s got it, thank you very much! Â Sired by the majestic Ansata Qasim of the legendary Ansata Arabian Stud & Highview Egyptian Stud, this colt is royal indeed. Â Mom and son are doing well in their mare-ternity suite here on the farm and we are wildly excited about his future! Â 2011 has been the year of the boys for Al Ameen Arabians and we couldn’t have asked for a more fantastic lineup!
On Monday, 4/25 the local chapter of the 4-H came to Al Ameen to meet and learn about the Egyptian Arabian. Â Children and parents alike enjoyed learning what makes an Arabian and Arabian and the horses loved all the attention! Â The stars of the “meet and greet” were definitely our two new colts. Â Moms were proud to show the crowd their little men and the boys, well, they loved showing off for the crowd! Â We loved sharing our farm and our horses with the club and hope to see them again soon.
On Saturday morning, 4/23 Dafiinah MCE (Thee Infidel x Masira Bay) delivered a big, substantial colt by the handsome stallion Mishaal HP. Â Strikingly handsome the newest man to arrive at Al Ameen Arabians is spunky and not afraid of chasing down what he wants—milk from mom or a butterfly across the paddock!! Â We congratulate Debbie and David Myers of Gardensgate Plantation on the newest addition to their herd. Â It’s raining men here at Al Ameen and we love it!!
