We have within our breeding program four distinct bloodlines, each of which is within the Egypt I-Blunt (Heirloom) group of Al Khamsa horses.
The first group, and most endangered in terms of perpetuating this rare blood, is the Hadban-Inzihi strain tail-female to Venus (KDV) through *Masarra's only Heirloom daughter, the incomparable Bint Masarra. Bint Masarra is no longer producing, leaving only about 9 mares producing this strain!
Another group within our herd is that of Queen of the Nile (Ra'adin Inshalla x Akid Bint Anazeh) and her offspring, all carrying Babson /Halima/Tuhotmos bloodlines.
Additionally, we have bred generations of Heirloom Babson/Halima horses, concentrating the blood of Fay-Sabbah through the foundation mare, Shar Sabbah (Negem x Gammousa), Heirloom Straight Babson. We have tested the strength of these bloodlines through close breedings and have produced outstanding competitive individuals of sound mind, excellent conformation, and dressage-type action.
The fourth group is that of the Pritzlaff horses, started by Richard Pritzlaff in the 1950s- a line of horses with very distinct physicall characteristics- large jibba and 'human' eyes being the most noticeable traits. These horses were bred and raised as they would have been in the wild deserts of Egypt- running loose on Pritzlaff's Rancho San Ignacio in New Mexico.
Herd sires are Ibn Lothar, a Straight Babson Egyptian, Inshalla Imhotep, Heirloom Babson/Halima bloodlines, and Miracle RSI, the Pritzlaff son of *Bint Dahma.
Ibn Lothar is the last living Babson son of Lothar. (Fippen's Dressage Stable, St. Joseph, IL)
