Pryme Thyme’s dam *Touch A Spice, who was a Junior Champion Filly at 4 months old and exported to Brazil, was by DWD Tabasco. DWD Tabasco was exported to Italy in 1996 and later to Austria in 1998 and is a World Champion producing stallion. He produced Champions on multiple continents, of whom some were: SH Krakow+/ with Regional Championships in Hunter Pleasure, Legion of Supreme Honor; Doskonaly+// with Regional Championships in Reining, and Youth National Champion Reining Horse, US and Canadian National Reserve Champion Reining Horse, Legion of Excellence; AF The Professor+ with Regional Championships in Halter, Western Pleasure, English Show Hack, Legion of Honor; Special Eddition with Regional Championship in Halter; CF Chardonnay with Regional Championships in Halter who was later exported to England; SH Chauvenist with Class A wins in Halter who was later exported to France; SH Enchantress with Class A wins in Most Classic who was exported to Italy; AD Ebony Lace with Regional Championships in Halter exported to the Netherlands; Son Of A Bay+/ with Regional Championships in English Pleasure, multiple US and Canadian National Champion in English Pleasure & Pleasure Driving, Legion of Supreme Honor; AB Tabasco Rose with Regional Championships in Halter; O Serrano+// with Regional Championships in Western Pleasure, Hunter Pleasure, Ladies Side Saddle Western, Legion of Excellence; Absolute MSC with Regional Championships in Reining; Gem Fyre with Regional Championships in Hunter Pleasure; SH Hallmark with Regional & Class A Championships in Halter and Country English Pleasure; LTB Classic with Regional Championships in Western Pleasure, Hunter Pleasure; SH Rhapsody with a Regional Champion in English Pleasure; CF Diamond Jim with Regional Championships in Halter; Taladinn World, European, Nations Cup Champion Halter and Champion Under Saddle in Qatar, exported to Saudi Arabia; DA Toohotforu with Region Championships in Country English Pleasure, Halter, Country Pleasure Driving, Hunter Pleasure, English Pleasure; Al Aliah International Junior Champion, SH Crown Jewel with Regional and Class A Championships in Halter; Victory MSC with multiple Championships in Country English Pleasure and Mounted Native Costume. DWD Tabasco passed on his dark color, exotic type, and commanding presence to his offspring and was said to have crossed well with Egyptian related mares.

    
DWD Tabasco was sired by the Champion Traditio. Among Tradio’s numerous Halter and Performance wins were Regional Champion Park Horse. He was described by his last owners as being a “very kind and personable horse who loved attention. His best attributes would be his size, high degree of athletic ability, type, substance and personality. He had an exceptionally long neck, almost to the point you would think he would tip over forward. He was a tad long in the back, though he was smooth bodied.” “He crossed fantastic with most Polish lines, but we really liked the cross back onto *Bask++ and Comet. He also did real well with the Celebes blood. Some of his get were on the smaller side (compared to him) but extremely typey and athletic. He has some sons that were also strong sires and his daughters are great producers of type and athletic ability.”

    
 Traditio was by the great *Gdansk+/. *Gdansk+/ was Regional Champion in Park Horse and Halter, Canadian National Reserve Champion Park Horse, Legion of Supreme Honor. He is sire of 99 Champions, sire of 40 National winners, sire of 64 National winner producers, and was syndicated for $5,000,000 with his last published stud fee of $12,500.

     *Gdansk+/ is by the immortal *Bask++. Fiesta Thyme PF carries 8 different crosses to *Bask++. *Bask++ is the only stallion to be a US National Champion Stallion and Park Horse and was the breed's all-time leading sire of Champions and National winners, as well as National winner producers until recently. Bred by Albigowa State Stud, Poland, *Bask++ began his race training in Poland at the age of 2. He remained in the racing program for a full 4 years and out of 40 races, he placed 1st 8 times, 2nd 7 times and was 3rd 7 times. *Bask++ was slated to be gelded, when Lasma Arabians chose to purchase him. *Bask++ was exported in 1963 to Lasma Arabians, USA where he became 1964 Scottsdale Champion Stallion, 1964 Scottsdale Champion Park (3-gaited), 1964 US National Champion Stallion, 1964 US National Top 10 Park, 1965 Spokane Reserve Champion Park, 1965 US National Champion Park, 1965 was awarded his Legion of Merit, 1966 Scottsdale Champion Park, 1967 US National Reserve Champion Formal Driving, 1967 US National Reserve Champion Formal Combination. Bred to very exclusive select mares, *Bask++ was given the chance to create a dynasty of Arabian foals that would produce phenomenal athletes and Champions worldwide.

     Pyro Thyme SA’s dam Holly Onfire JW is by the Magic VF son Katz. Katz was a multiple Class A Champion in Halter. Katz produced several Champions including: Katz Dreamer YW, Georgeanne Tu, KCK Kool Katz, Katz Serenade SA, Katlynn SA.

      Magic VF was bred by Ventura Farms Arabian Division. He was 1987 US National Top 10 Futurity Colt, 1990 Canadian National Top 10 Stallion, 1994 Scottsdale Reserve Champion Stallion 6 and Over, 1994 Ramona AHA All Arabian English Pleasure 2nd place with Ray LaCroix his only time shown under saddle, and 2000 US National Top 10 Stallion in Halter AOT. Magic VF produced many very accomplished horses. Some of those are: All Magic+, Champion in Halter, Hunter Pleasure, Native Costume, English Show Hack, Legion of Honor; I A Sunraycer+/, Champion in Halter, Western Pleasure, Country English Pleasure, Native Costume, English Show Hack, Legion of Supreme Honor; Stats+, Champion in Western Trail, Legion of Honor; HM Abracadabra++//, Champion in English Pleasure, Halter, Country English Pleasure, Native Costume, English Show Hack, Hunter Pleasure, Legion of Merit and Excellence.

     Magic VF is out of the exotic beauty Basks Maria. Basks Maria
is an Aristocrat mare and the dam of 6 Champions, 3 of which were National winners. She is a daughter of *Bask++, her beauty and extreme refinement put her in a class by herself.  Basks Maria’s dam, Judith-B adds additional *Bask++ blood, as her dam is the *Bask++ daughter HMR Julie. Judith-B is sired by *Buszmen++, a Canadian National Champion, US National Reserve Champion, and 3X's Scottsdale Champion Stallion, Legion of Merit.

     *Buszmen++ is sired by the great *Naborr. *Naborr is one of 8 World Sires of Significance who have sons who are Sires of Significance. (*Gwalior, *Aramus, Kaborr+++, and Gai-Adventure). In 1954 *Naborr was named Reserve National Champion at the All Union Agricultural Fair in Moscow. Winner of that class was his sire, Negatiw. *Naborr sold at age 19 for $150,000 and in 1963 *Naborr was imported to USA by Anne McCormick, traveling on the same boat with *Bask++.

    
*Naborr is by the great Russian stallion Negatiw. Negatiw was bred by Tersk Stud, Russia. He was 50% Crabbet. Exported to Poland in 1962 and was a race winner in Poland. Race record: 1/4 (2-0-0). Sire of many Race winners. Negatiw's sire line was Ibrahim and his dam line was Gazella DB. Negatiw was 1954 Russian National Champion Stallion. He was credited as the stallion that returned the Ibrahim sire to Poland. Negatiw remains highly regarded around the world as the most internationally influential grandson of the immortal Skowronek. Though bred in Russia, Negatiw was from predominantly Polish bloodlines as his dam was a Janów Podlaski confiscate from the Second World War. As a considerably successful sire at Tersk, Negatiw was greatly desired by the Poles for many years. He was finally obtained at age 17, standing in Poland for another 10 years with outstanding results. Having already sired international Sires of Significance *Salon and *Naborr in the USSR, Negatiw left Poland with the immortal *Bandos PASB and a host of wonderfully typey, ultra-refined and extraordinarily feminine broodmares. Director Krzysztalowicz described Negatiw as 'extremely dry and refined, with a small, chiseled head accented by beautifully large, dark and luminous eyes and small ears. His legs were relatively correct (though slightly sickle-hocked) and his back and topline were strong and a bit long. As a stallion, he was strikingly refined and distinguished - he represented a rare example of perfection.'

    
Katz is out of the *Bask++ daughter Belbowrie Baskana. Belbowrie Baskana is the only *Bask++ daughter out of a Straight Egyptian mare. Not only did she have many Champion offspring, including 5 Regional winners, she is granddam of mares such as RGA Kouress, Holly OnFire JW, and National Champion Veronica GA, making her the great-granddam of World Champion Marajj, US National Champions Pyro Thyme SA and Verily PCF, National Reserve Champions PCF Vision and SF Sir Real, and National Top 10’s SF Infamous and SF Veraz.

    Holly Onfire JW is out of the Champion producing mare Kailabaska. Of these Champions, Kailabaska produced: Baske Thyme SA+// with Regional Championships in Western Trail, Cutting, Herd Work, Working Cow, and US National Reserve Champion in Working Cow, Youth National Champion Western Trail and Champion Cutting, Legion Of Excellence; Kally Thyme SA with Class A Champion in Halter; Kalypso Thyme SA with Class A Championships in Hunter Pleasure.

     Kailabaska is by the *Bask++ son, Baske-Tu. He was Canadian National Reserve Champion Stallion, Scottsdale English Pleasure Champion, Utah Reserve Champion and Most Classic Head, and 1967 Estes Park Reserve Champion. Baske-Tu is out of the Rapture and *Nasr bred mare, Nafta. *Nasr was imported into the US in 1932 by Mr. W R Brown. *Nasr was bred by Prince Mohammed Ali. He was a stunning white bold and powerful stallion.*Nasr had a remarkable Racing career in Egypt prior to his importation. Standing 15 hands high and weighing 1,000 lbs, he is recorded as having a girth of 70 inches with 7.5 inches of bone. His foals were exported to countries all over the world, including England, Brazil, Guatemala, Columbia and Venezuela.

     Kailabaska is out of the Kaiyoum++ daughter, and Champion producer, Kailalajka. Kaiyoum++ was Canadian National Reserve Champion Stallion and US National Top 10 Stallion, the top-siring son of Khemosabi++++// with over 50 Champions and 10 National winners. He was famous for his disposition, allowing kids to ride him with just a halter on. He passed on his intelligence, gentle nature, and excellent structure very consistently. Kaiyoum++ daughters have been exceptional broodmares.

    
Kaiyoum++ is sired by the record setting Khemosabi++++//. Khemosabi++++// was bred by Dr. & Mrs. B P Husband. He was sire of 1264 registered Arabians and Half-Arabians, Grandsire of 8636 registered Arabians and Half-Arabians. Khemosabi++++// was 1973 US National Champion Stallion, 1976 US National Champion Western Pleasure, 1969 Canadian National Champion Stallion, 1976 Canadian National Champion Stallion, 1976 Canadian National Champion Western Pleasure, 1971 Canadian National Champion Pleasure Driving, 1972 US National Reserve Champion Stallion, 1970 Canadian National Top 10 Stallion. Khemosabi++++// was awarded Legion of Masters and Legion of Excellence. Khemosabi++++// is one of the only horses to ever win an Arabian National Championship in both Halter and Performance in the same year, and 1 of only 4 stallions to win US National Championships in both Halter and Performance. His sire, Amerigo++ was 1966 US National Reserve Champion Stallion at Halter, earned the Legion of Merit. Khemosabi++++//’s  dam, Jurneeka++ was also 1964 US National Reserve Champion in English Pleasure and Western Pleasure, and earned the Legion of Merit award.

     Jurneeka++ is a daughter of the fabulous Fadjur. Fadjur was one of the most-loved horses in Arabian horse history. Fadjur won many National titles for his conformation and type, yet his most lasting contribution to the Arabian horse breed is his prepotency as a sire of excellence. Fadjur's influence transcends time and generations of exceptional Arabian horses with a special charisma, intelligence, beautiful Arabian type, athletic ability and wonderful disposition that is known as 'the Look of Fadjur.'  Fadjur's everlasting legacy lives on at his lifetime home through the blood of his finest get at the Jack Tone Ranch in Stockton, California, USA. In 1999 Fadjur was inducted into the Arabian Horse Trust Hall of Fame, for his influence on the Arabian Breed.

     Through Jurneeka++, there are 2 lines to *Fadl. *Fadl was bred by Prince Mohammed Ali, Manial Stud, Egypt. Imported from Egypt to US in 1932 by Henry B Babson, Chicago, Illinois. Sire of 74 registered purebred Arabian foals (34 of which were Straight Babson Egyptians). The stallion *Fadl was used as a Polo Pony and as an Endurance mount, besides being a successful show ring competitor in both Halter and Performance, as well as working on the farm pulling the feed wagon and manure spreader. Modern Arabian breeding owes much to the Babson Egyptian imports. The breed’s all-time leading sire of Champions, Afire Bey V, traces to the Babson stallion *Fadl, as do US National Champion Stallions and influential sires Khemosabi++++//, Legion of Master and Excellence, and Ali Jamaal, multi-National Champion Park Aequus+/, Legion of Supreme Honor, *Simeon Shai+ (the only stallion to ever be named US and Canadian National Champion Stallion and World Champion Stallion), Legion of Honor, multi-National Champion Dressage El Bahim Halawa+, Legion of Honor, and multi-National Champion English Pleasure Empress Of Bask, to name just a few prominent horses who carry the Babson influence. Of *Fadl's 74 registered get, 34 were Babson Egyptian. 11 of *Fadl's get produced National winners. The 6 *Fadl sons who have sired National winners are: Fa-Serr, Fabah, Ibn Fadl, Fa-Turf and Fadheilan (sire of twice US National Reserve Champion Stallion Fadjur, one of the most influential stallions in American Arabian breeding in the 20th century). *Fadl's National-winner producing daughters are Arafay, Fa-Rahna, Dinah, Faaba and Turfara.

     *Fadl was by Ibn Rabdan, one of the most popular and heavily used stallions in Egypt. Carl Raswan considered Ibn Rabdan as a "World Champion" type.  Jack Humphreys, who selected Arabians in Egypt for W R Brown, described Ibn Rabdan as "almost perfect". *Fadl's dam, Mahroussa, was epitomized as one of the most beautiful mares of her time. Mahroussa was the daughter of Mabrouk Manial and Negma, both classic Arabians of exceptional quality. Mahroussa also produced such horses as *Zarife, *HH Mohamed Alis Hamida, *HH Mohamed Alis Hamama and *Maaroufa, *Fadl's full sister.

    
Kailalajka is out of the Raffon++ daughter Half Moon Bay. Raffon++ was 1965 US National Champion Stallion at Halter, 1973 US National Champion English Pleasure, a Legion Of Merit ++ achiever, and a Sire Of Significance winner. Raffon++ is out of the Indraff daughter Vadraff, and sired by the Living Legend Gazon. In 1970 Gazon was presented as a Living Legend at the US Nationals, 1975 with a Memorial tribute to Lloyd Burton, 1976 received Supreme Sire, and 1984 Arabian Horse World Sire Of Significance. Gazon passed away in December 1986 at the age of 31.

     Gazon’s sire is the great stallion Ferzon. Ferzon was bred by Frank  McCoy and foaled at the same time as Fadjur on the McCoy Ranch. McCoy listed both stallions for sale with Fadjur's price at $700 and Ferzon's price at $10,000, not dreaming anyone could come up with that kind of money during that time. McCoy then showed Ferzon in 1953 at the Palm Desert, CA First Annual All Arabian Show to Reserve Champion Stallion. At that same show Ferneyn, Ferzon's sire, took Grand Championship. Moneyna, the dam of Ferneyn, was named Reserve Champion Mare, while Hasa, a half-sister to Ferneyn by Ferseyn, was the Grand Champion Mare. That same year Ferzon also won the Long Beach, CA Yearling Colt Championship, San Diego, CA Desert Arabian Association Yearling Colt Championship (again he placed 2nd to his own sire Ferneyn in the Stallion Championship). In August of 1953 Ferzon was Reserve Champion Yearling Colt with Fadjur placing 4th. In September of 1953 Ferzon was the Champion Yearling Colt at the Los Angeles County Fair. Then came Daniel Gainey, Sr, with $10,000 to purchase Ferzon and to produce a distinctive look to Arabians that many people now call the Gainey-look. One of the most popular teams of horse and rider ever, Harvey Ellis and Moneyna were famous for his exhibitions of riding her with no bit, no headstall, no head equipment of any kind. Among their many show credits were Champion Mare and Grand Champion, Pomona 1948 at 11 yrs old, and Reserve Champion, All-Arab Show Palm Desert 1953 at 16 yrs old.

     Moneyna traces in tail female to the famed war mare *Wadduda. Fiesta Thyme PF carries 21 crosses to *Wadduda. *Wadduda was presented to Homer Davenport as a gift by Achmet Haffez. *Wadduda had been for several years the favorite personal mare of the Hashem Bey, and a gift of him to Achmet Haffez. On Davenport’s first meeting with her, ridden by Ali, eldest son of Achmet Haffez, in a moment into the courtyard she came tearing towards them, all afire, bouncing tassels, blue beads in her highly carried tail, such hock action, and her eyes fairly sparkled. Her name in Arabic has meaning of love/affection. Achmet Haffez in an emotional voice said that when you speak her name it shall bear witness of his regard and the gift and acceptance will be the foundation of their friendship and brotherhood without end. A child of the desert she was. It is said that she did not seem to like the confines of her life in town. Davenport recounts the evening of their departure from Aleppo, he riding her. Over the dirt and rocky road they rode, she fretted. Davenport felt that perhaps it was the strange rider and clothes. Then just at sunset, they came to the edge of the desert. *Wadduda stopped, as if paying tribute to the closing day. Salat Al-Maghrib, sunset prayer. Then, with a quick toss of her head she began to cavort and play. He settled deep in the saddle and let her frolic. Finally, she stopped short, snorted, and broke into a gallop with a delightful spring. It was a return home for her, the call of the nomadic life, of raids and races, open air under the canopy of stars, as opposed to the confines of her corral in town. Ears alert, she pranced, eyes blazing with intense satisfaction. Davenport said that during this, he too had been carried back to his boyhood dreams and fantasies, was surprised to find his cheeks wet; he had been crying without being aware of it, realizing then who and what she was and what she meant to him. Such was the true *Wadduda, mare of the desert. One of *Wadduda’s famed exploits was a ride in pursuit of a caravan from Iskanderoon to Aleppo, some 106 miles in 11 hours (a feat equal to The Tevis Cup Ride in time and distance) and prior to that feat to have had a pastern damaged in war/raid; she is also recorded as bearing lance wound scars on neck and shoulder. Gladys Brown Edwards of *Wadduda states that perhaps plain headed she may have been, but she was neither coarse nor common, and was a mare to be proud of.  ***from *Wadduda ‘The Great War Mare’ by Jack Kenning

     Ferzon's dam, Fersara, was Pacific Coast Champion Mare 1952, 1953 and Reserve Champion Mare 1954. NEVER OUT OF THE RIBBONS - 27 Classes (21 Blues). 3 time Grand Champion - Pomona Fall Show. Permanent Winner - Kellogg Challenge Trophy. Fersara was considered The Champion Mare, and was Always The Horse To Beat.

     Fiesta Thyme PF is out of the Madrid PF daughter Chica Bonita PF. Madrid PF’s sire, *Malikitoa was purchased in 1979 by Lasma Arabians for $120,000. With very few Pure Spanish offspring, *Malikitoa was used mostly as an outcross stallion when he arrived in the US. Madrid PF, being one of his most noted Pure Spanish sons, has proven to be an excellent sire of chiseled heads, long elegant necks, high tail carriage, powerful motion and huge Spanish eyes. *Malikitoa spent the last 4 years of his life as a personal pleasure horse for the M. Barry family in Wisconsin. *Malikitoa’s dam, Ispahan, also foaled *An Malik, *Maliksa, Maliksao and Maliuskoa.  **Spanish Arabian Horse Society

     Alhabac was used extensively in the Valerio breeding program as a “balancer” for the Galero bloodlines. Galero is considered possibly the greatest sire of Spanish Arabians in modern times. It is believed that he was stolen sometime during the night, but despite a nationwide search, he was never found or seen again. Whatever happened to this stallion remains a mystery.

     Madrid PF is out of the very nice Spanish mare Granada I, a Halter Champion, Certified Field Hunter and dam of numerous Champions. Granada I is daughter of the beautiful *Padre. *Padre was 1976 Spanish Supreme National Champion before he was imported to the US by Stanley Ranch in 1979. He has sired numerous Champions in the US as well as in 3 other countries. In 1988 *Padre was awarded the coveted title of Spanish National Get-of-Sire Champion.

     *Padre is by the magnificent Garbo. Garbo is the producer of more offspring than any of the other past premier breeding stallions. Garbo is considered by the Spanish to be the “perfect model” stallion, both in temperament and physical conformation. Mally Stanley of SRSA was granted special permission to measure Garbo at the Depot near Madrid. 59 ½ inches at the withers, length of back 21 ½ inches to middle of withers to sacrum, length of hip 24 ¼ inches sacrum to outside edge of hindquarter. In regard to the above measurements, it is considered an ideal to have the length of back no longer than the length of hip. Very unusual to find a horse so near the ideal. Length of neck 38 ½ inches poll to middle of wither at rest, poll to bottom of eye 11 ¾ inches, bottom of eye to tip of muzzle 13 inches. Another interesting measurement, as the ideal is to have the head divided in half by the eye. Width between the eyes 9 ¼ inches, width between jowls 7 inches underneath, width between the front legs at chest 7 inches, point of shoulder to middle of wither 29 ¼ inches angle, circumference of girth 71 inches middle of wither and around, Forearm 18 5/8 inches elbow to center of knee, cannon bone 10 5/8 inches center of knee to center of fetlock. Another measurement that horsemen rely on is that the topline of a horse, middle of wither to sacrum, is appreciably shorter than the underline, point of elbow to point of stifle. Topline 21 ½ inches, underline 33 ¼ inches. One other measurement of interest is the width of the hindquarter at point of hip, in Garbo it’s 19 inches. **Spanish Arabian Horse Society

     *Padre is out of the Fabuloso daughter Yuca. Fabuloso and Kako are just a couple of the most noteworthy sons of Nana-Sahib. A few of his more recognized daughters are Famula, the dam of Maquillo and Bahia II, *Salina and *Agata III, and Habladuria, the dam of *Sabiduria and Baldosa. Nana-Sahib’s daughter Egina, was the dam of Malvito who was widely regarded as the most influential sire of the late 1950’s. Nana-Sahib’s daughter Kantista was the dam of Alhabac. Nana-Sahib was stalled next to Barquillo in Spain. They both broke out of their stalls one night and fought so viciously, no one could break up the fight. Nana-Sahib broke both front legs, ending up needing to be euthanized. Nana-Sahib is by Razada. Razada was imported into Spain in 1926 by Cristobal Colon, Duque de Veragua. Razada was trained in Haute Ecole and had such presence that he was most impressive. Razada had a very strong temper and did not like everybody. When the Spanish Civil War started in 1936, the house and horses of Valjuanete were expropriated. The soldiers could not handle Razada, and one day a soldier shot him. Razada was Absolute Champion, All Breeds, at the 1930 show with the Duke of Veragua.

    
Kantista is the granddaughter in tail female to the stunning Skowronek daughter Reyna. Reyna was imported into Spain in 1930 by Cristobal Colon, Duque de Veragua. She is considered a Spanish Tail Female mare, and is an exceptionally beautiful daughter of Skowronek. Reyna was Champion at the Richmond show in England as a yearling. She is also dam of Kashmir, one of Spain’s most important stallions.

     Granada I is out of *Kirat II. *Kirat II was imported into the US from Spain in 1979 by Stanley Ranch, produced numerous Champions in a multitude of disciplines, with her offspring being consistent Champion producers as well. *Kirat II is the granddaughter of Malvito. Malvito was Gandhy’s most influential son. One of Malvito’s most influencial sons of the modern Spanish Arabian is Zurich. One of his noteworthy daughters is Bizancio II. *Kirat II’s sire Saludo is a son of the great Maquillo.  Maquillo was senior stallion at the National Stud in Spain in the early 1960’s. One of his best sons was Saludo, along with Sacudir, Uzacur, and Bambu. Maquillo was an exceptionally well-conformed and beautiful stallion. His daughters Agata II, Baldosa, Betonica, Oromana, Dalia IV, and Garpa were all excellent producers.  **AKS

     Chica Bonita PF is out of the *Figuroso daughter PF Exquisite. *Figuroso was Spanish National Champion Stallion 2 times before being imported to the US in 1978. *Figuroso is by Tabal. Tabal is a Classical Spanish Semental Del Estado (S. del E.) bred by Jose Maria de Ybarra. He was sold to the Cria Caballar in 1959 and certified as a quality breeding sire for both their private use and at public stud. Tabal is one of the 2 principle sons of Congo, the other being Zancudo. His son *Figuroso established important lines in Holland and the US. Tabal’s daughter Estopa obtained worldwide renown for her extremely successful get in Germany. Tabal was known for siring horses with exceptional motion. Both Tabal and Zancudo were stretchier and narrower than other Congo get. *Figuroso is out of the beautiful Bahia II. Bahia II was 1976 Supreme Spanish National Champion Female, 1972 Supreme Champion Female All Breeds at the Sevilla show, and is a producer of Champions whom are consistent producers of Champions.

     Fiesta Thyme PF carries 17 lines to the very influential Ursus. Ursus was imported into Spain by the Cria Caballar in 1912 through France. Ursus was used only once on a purebred by the Yeguada Militar and then was sold “Deshecho” to Jose Maria Ybarra in 1928. He was initially used by the Yeguada Del Cid and the Yeguada Casa De Marques Domecq. Domecq bred Sirio III, which was coveted and finally purchased by the Duque de Veragua who used him extensively. Such was the high quality of his get that Veragua sold several stallions as breeding sires to the State Stud in Portugal. Ursus’ true potential came to the foreground with the birth and subsequent sale of his son Gandhy to the Yeguada Militar in 1935. Gandhy had been bred by Jose Maria Ybarra, in spite of Ursus being marked deshecho, and is known for his own sons: Tetuan (exported to Argentina 1951), Maquillo, Malvito, and Habiente. Ursus himself was not a large or tall horse, but he had a tremendous charismatic attitude.

     Chica Bonita PF carries a line to Celebes through her great-grandsire *Pierscien. *Pierscien is a sire of Regional and Show Champions. Celebes is considered the most valuable son of Witraz. He was never raced, but would have had a great ability to do so. When bred to good racing mares, he was known as the sire of good racers. *Pierscien’s dam, *Piersnica, was considered to be one of the best producing daughters of Negatiw. She has been crossed with sons of *Bask++, Witraz, Comet, and Aswan with excellent results each time.

     *Bask++ is sired by Witraz who is sired by Ofir. Fiesta Thyme PF also carries 9 lines to Wielki Szlem and a line to *Witez II, also by Ofir. Ofir was thought to be the most valuable Polish breeding stallion produced between the World Wars. Ofir’s body was very strong and balanced. The fertility, hardiness, soundness and (in the case of the mares that were generationally close to Ofir) the propensity to be fabulous ‘milkers’ were factors that entered into the high opinion with which Ofir was regarded. Ofir’s neck was of adequate length, but was somewhat heavy in general. His eyes, ears and general dryness were first rate.Wielki Szlem and *Witez II resembled Ofir more strongly than did Witraz. Witraz had a longer and better shaped neck than Ofir. His head was more attractive than his sire’s, but his ability to sire unbelievably beautiful daughters and sons that were noble if not beautiful was a phenomenon of the breed. The body of Witraz was a little longer than his sire’s and his legs were not as clean. Witraz was a little over 15 hands. Ofir was a shade over 14.2 hands and Wielki Szlem was just shy of 14.2 hands. Ofir’s legs were quite good. Wielki Szlem had a squarer frame than did Witraz. His neck was definitely not as nice as Witraz’s. Wielki Szlem had short, nicely shaped ears and quite good eyes, but did not approach Witraz in terms of a general arresting quality of head. His head was reported to be short, but pictures certainly show a generally boxy overall shape. Wielki Szlem had very sturdy and sound legs. The quality of his bone, still was not quite as clean as his sire’s. Wielki Szlem was definitely a shorter legged horse than Witraz and did not have as long a forearm. The racing ability of the Wielki Szlem offspring as opposed to the Witraz offspring was generally superior, to a degree that was significant. Witraz was a fiery horse in possession of remarkable charisma and capable of putting on a tremendous show when being trotted in hand. Wielki Szlem offspring could trot like crazy, but he had a calmer temperament. This ability also translated well in the saddle seat venues of the US. The Witraz son *Bask++, certainly put an irrevocable stamp on those classes as well so counts for a lot, but there is a much larger sample of Wielki Szlem offspring as opposed to Witraz get to cite this demonstrable ability. Mr. Pankiewicz stated that Wielki Szlem was the more consistent sire, while Witraz had a wider cross section of quality in his offspring, but that was offset by the fact that Witraz had ‘not a few great’ horses as well. The Wielki Szlem daughters were often not glamour queens in the flesh, but their ability to give absolutely first class direct offspring was off the charts.

     Fiesta Thyme PF carries in her tail female line the great Egyptian horses *Farazdac and *Tuhotmos, as well as Alaa El Din. Also included in her tail female is Abu Farwa, Jadaan, along with her tail female line beginning with the Arabian Horse Association’s first registered Arabian, *Nejdme.

     *Tuhotmos is out of Moniet El Nefous. Moniet El Nefous was considered one of the most significant Arabian mares in the fundamental history of Arabian horse breeding. Born and bred in Egypt, she was suitably labled as “The Queen of the Nile” by erudite breeders. Her name though is translated as ‘wish of soul’. Bred at the Royale Agricultural Society in Egypt and sired by the Ibn Rabdan son,  Shahloul. Ibn Rabdan was considered to be one of the finest, good-looking breeding stallions of all time and was a preeminent influential stallion in the breeding programs of the Royal Agricultural Society. Carl Raswan considered Ibn Rabdan as a "world champion" type.  Jack Humphreys, who selected Arabians in Egypt for W R Brown, described Ibn Rabdan as "almost perfect". Moniet El Nefous’ dam was the very pretty mare, Wanisa, sired by Sheikh El Arab and out of Medallela. Of Moniet El Nefous’ 13 foals, these are her most influential offspring in pedigrees today: Mabrouka (x Sid Abouhom) the dam of the immortal stallion *Morafic, Lubna (x Sid Abouhom) the dam of the great *Sultann who is sire of *Sakr+++, Legion of Supreme Merit, and Makhsous, Mouna (x Sid Abouhom) grand-dam of The Egyptian Prince, *Bint Moniet El Nefous (x Nazeer) imported to the US by Richard Pritzlaff, *Fahker El Din (x Nazeer) imported to the US, *Tuhotmos (x El Sereei) was for many years the leading sire of Champions at the Egyptian Agricultural Organization in Egypt and imported into the US, *Ibn Moniet El Nefous (x *Morafic) syndicated for a large amount for his time of $4,000,000, *Soufian (x Alaa El Din) imported into the US by Gleannloch Farms, and Ameer (x Galal) sire of Marzouka.

     *Farazdac is by Alaa El Din, whose sire Nazeer was considered to be a very good race horse, and was also very hot, and was heavily used at stud by the Egyptian Agricultural Organization after the state took over the stud. He outranked both his half-brother Sheikh El Arab and Shahloul. Nazeer and Sheikh El Arab were both by Mansour; theirs is the most important sire line in Egyptian breeding. Both stallions trace to important dam lines: Nazeer to the dam line of Kamla and Sheikh El Arab to the ancestors of Bukra. Nazeer was an impressive grey, not very tall, standing under 14.3hh; a dry, correct horse with a fiery eye; very masculine and with fine conformation. He sired stallions of equal quality. His daughters Bint Bukra, Bint Moniet El Nefous and Bint Mabrouka embodied the highest Arabian type and an unequalled refinement. However, it was his sons who were taken more notice of. These mare families in particular, became his best and truest heirs: Morafic, Ibn Halima, Ghazal, Hadban Enzahi and Aswan.

     Fiesta Thyme PF’s 4 lines to *Mirage are all through his son Image . Roger Selby’s main purchase in 1930 was *Mirage, an imported grey stallion, 14.2hh, 1000lbs, three gated, sound, most gentle and lovable, of the Seglawi Jedran Dalia strain, the most prized of the Seglawi strains. Lady Wentworth described him as ‘a very showy good horse. Excellent legs, splendid quarters and fine front. Very good in saddle, but too bouncing for English taste as he gets English riders off.’ But this was not the reason *Mirage was sold. Weatherbys had by now closed their Stud Book to new imports and although Lady Wentworth tried to persuade them to accept *Mirage, she was unsuccessful and therefore had no option but to sell him. Margaret Lindsley Warden said of *Mirage: “now rated by many experts as the most perfect specimen of the ancient elite or classic type in America…He stands a scant 14.2hh, a sturdy model with the characteristic refinements of the best of his breed. His head is a glory and his great eyes express high but gentle spirit and gracious personality.” *Mirage was English Champion at the Richmond Royal Show 1926, and American Champion at the National Arabian Show, Nashville, TN 1934, at the age of 25. A most unique honor for a horse of such remarkable age. Only one other horse, Mr. Selby’s mare Champion Rifala, holds the same record of being both a British and American Champion.

     Of Fiesta Thyme PF’s 39 crosses to Skowronek, 8 of them are through one of great note, *Raseyn. *Raseyn was the 1st stallion by Skowronek to come to the US. He was a regular feature in the Kellogg Sunday Show, being trained 1st as a Jumper, then for five-gates as which he was fairly fast at the Rack, though not quite with the speed and form of a Saddlebred. He had a natural slow gait, which he performed with style, and a slow and graceful canter. *Raseyn was Champion Arabian at the Los Angeles County Fair in 1933 and Champion Arabian Stallion at the Los Angeles National Horse Show. He maintained his beautiful dark dappling for many years and the white of his coat had the silvery sheen so typical of the Skowronek horses. *Raseyn lived out the last years of his life with Alice Payne at her Asil Ranch near Chino, California, and died there following a stroke on May 19, 1952. He was 29 years old at the time of his death.

     Fiesta Thyme PF traces 4 lines to the Crabbet stallion *Raffles. *Raffles was bred by Crabbet Arabian Stud, Sussex, England, was imported from England to US in 1932 by Roger A Selby, Portsmouth, Ohio. (*Raffles was a gift from Lady Wentworth to the Selby children, as he was believed to be sterile). In 1937, at age 11, he was brought back to fertility by the Selby Stud Manager, Jimmy Dean and his wife, Thelma, primarily through exercise. In 1949, when he was 23, *Raffles was nearly lost to the breed when he broke a hind leg above the hock. Jimmy Dean and his son, Pete, rigged a special sling that supported the stallion enough to let the leg heal. The prepotency of the *Raffles type (Ali Pasha Sherif type - classy, bold motion, density of bone and stamina) fixed Arabian type for American breeders for generations. By 1981, 65 percent of the US National Champions and Reserves had one or more crosses to *Raffles.

     *Raffles' dam, *Rifala, was both an English and American Champion. She won several times in England and was Champion mare at the National Arabian Show in Nashville, Tenn., in 1933. *Rifala was also registered in the Jockey Club book as No. 5465.
