Ceniza walked under it calmly taking her filly with her.
The breeze was lifting and flapping the tarp, dropping it almost on her wither.
Perhaps ancestral memory gave her the reassurance to accept that this strange
and active ceiling was not going to swallow her up. She nursed her filly and
munched her hay quite happily.
As I wondered how to fasten the front edge, a very welcome visitor from the
desert arrived and helped me stand a 16 foot pipe panel on end and tie the tarp edge to
it. When tied to the foaling pen it lifted the front edge up ten feet creating a
wonderful shady black tent. Ceniza and her filly were happily enjoying the new
comforts of home not caring if their new home seem to “breathe” in the wind
with a life of its own.
The visitor from the desert was Joy Randall whom I hadn’t seen in about a
year and did not know was coming! She has a Blue Star stallion and
desert-bred Saluki dogs. Joy lives about 40 miles west of us. She must have sensed
that a black tent was coming alive at Bint Al Bahr!
The desert breezes must
carry more than we know…
|Ceniza’s filly Aamala was 83 pounds at birth, 37½" tall with a 31"
girth. Her only markings are 2 white hairs on her forehead. She is a very sweet,
friendly filly with short deep dished face,
long neck and compact body. She is a straight Babson Egyptian, Sheykh Obeyd and
Al Khamsa filly. The proud mom
is Almoraima Ceniza (Ibn Saafadan x Ru Robin Sabbah). She is sired by Ahmed
Fabah (Fabah x Sereneh).
||This sensible filly was named Ahmeds
Aamala, which means “Ahmed’s
Dream”. She was named by her new owner, Rivian Gardner of Tee Gee Arabians of Marengo, Illinois. It is a very suitable name as
whom we leased Ahmed Fabah from, has long dreamed of a Straight Babson daughter of Ahmed's to join her herd.
We are very happy that we could send this very special filly
to Rivian as a future bride of her Straight Babson stallion,
Mahrouf’s Image (Mahrouf x Serr Rous Amira).
