NF BINT SAHJA, a rare Ansata Hejazi daughter whose parents and grandparents have all been exported to the middle east, has proven to be a broodmare extraordainaire for A & D Arabians. She is reminiscent of the original Gleannloch imports with her huge hip, long neck and big trot. Her pedigree is impeccable, being out of an Ansata Nile Pasha daughter,who is out of an Ibn Morafic daughter -- all champion and champion- producing stallions. Her bottom line traces to the mare Sakani, by Ibn Morafic and out of Subhaya, a Tuhotmos daughter who Judi Forbis refers to as a “broodmare supreme” in the Authentic Arabian Bloodstock. Her breeding ability was evident in her son Kamal Ibn Adeed, who won both his classes at the Egyptian Event, but then she followed him with an absolutely gorgeous daughter of Laheeb Al Nasser (Al Adeed Al Shaqab x Bint Saida Al Nassser) named Hejazia. Sahja is of the Saqlawi strain and again Judi Forbis, speaking of her maternal great-granddam Subhaya, states “Her pedigree reflects a remarkable intensification of the Saqlawi strain (6 out of 8 grandparents)”. The Saqlawi look is obvious in her son Kamal, as well as her daughter Hejazia, and we could not be more pleased with her breeding ability. What a breeder hopes for is a mare or stallion that can out produce her or himself and that is just what Sajha has done for A & D Arabians.

ANSATA OMNIYA, a daughter of Ansata Iemhotep and out of the Ansata Omar Halim daughter Ansata Omari who was exported to the middle east, is another treasure for A & D Arabians. Her 2010 filly Omitu is by the Laheeb son Shihaab and is a fine example of Laheeb being crossed on Ansata blood. Carrying the rare blood of Ansata Halim Shah’s full brother, Ansata Omar Halim, she added an element in her pedigree that is not only rare, but known for producing excellence. Both her parents have been exported, and who can forget Ansata Iemhotep taking over the ring when winning the Egyptian Event championship. Omniya’s bottom line traces to the Babson mare Fada, matching the bottom line of Prince Fa Moniet and thus giving her the same bottom line on the top and bottom line of her pedigree, which adds to her predictability as a broodmare. Again, having retained her excellent daughter as her replacement, Omniya was sold to Kuwait in foal to Kamal Ibn Adeed.


Omitu is out of our Iemhotep daughter Ansata Omniya and by the Laheeb son Shihaab. Shihaab's sire Laheeb is a son of the immortal Imperial Imdal. Laheeb, an Egyptian Event champion himself, has also sired World Champion and Egyptian Event Supreme Champion Stallion Al Lahab, as well as World Champion mare Galilea, among many other international champions. Shihaab’s dam is GCA Desert Breeze, by Farhan Ibn Shiko and out of the Imperial Imperor daughter GA Desert Wine. Adding the Shiko line gives Omitu a rare outcross that adds pigmentation and movement. She has a pretty head, and carries the Laheeb look that one hopes to get when breeding into his line. Omitu produced a beautiful colt in April 2014 (see his picture on the foals page).  She foaled a beautiful  Kamal Ibn Adeed filly for her new owners in April 2015.
