March 28 2017 update: he has found a home. More later.
Reposting from Aug 2016:
I am putting Wadd, my 5 year old Davenport stallion, up for sale. He is the youngest offspring of the grand Triermain CF, out of Wisteria CF, one of the prettiest Triermain daughters and a favorite of Charles Craver.
He is a Kuhaylan Haifi by strain, bred within the strain for four generations. His sire was the main Kuhaylan Haifi stallion at Craver Farms in the last period of its activity, as was the sire of his sire before him.
He would be best used to perpetuate his breed, preferably within the asil group of horses, including the Davenports, Saud, straight Syrians, North African, Bahraini, Sharps, and other Arabian horses lines that came directly from the Arabian and Syrian deserts. He sired one offspring for me, a filly now two months old, and is an easy breeder. He has a curious and playful disposition. He leads easily but is not broken to ride.
For readers from the Arab world where these things matter, almost every one of his ancestors came from the desert with a certificate of authenticity (hujjah) from its Bedouin breeder or owner. He is from the best blood of the Northern Arabian desert.
He is bred very tightly within a closed group for the past 110 years, tracing exclusively to famous horses directly imported from the Arabian desert in 1906. For instance, he has 243 crosses to *Urfah, the war mare of al-Awaji, a senior sheykh of the ‘Anazah Bedouins; 140 crosses to *Wadduda, the war mare of Ibn Mhayd, one of the leaders of the Anazah Bedouins; and 59 crosses to *Abeyah, the war mare of Mit’ab al-Hadb, the Shammar military commander at the time.
