a little more about Earl Grey++/....

Earl Grey++/ is the first colt out of our beautiful Top Ten and multi English Pleasure Champion Bey Shah+ daughter NV Masira and is sired by the *Bask son, Amurath Baikal (United States Reserve National Futurity Champion Stallion and sire of National Champions).

For those of you who have attended our annual Garden Party, Earl Grey++/'s dam, N.V. Masira, will have left you with an unforgettable impression. She is a beautiful dark chestnut mare and is the epitome of what one would want in an Arabian broodmare - quality, femininity, an abundance of motion and a loving personality. Masira has been a highly successful show horse with major halter championships across the United States, as well as being a Canadian National Top Ten Halter Mare. Masira also has been a very successful English Pleasure Horse, again with major English Pleasure Championships across the Southwestern States and the North East. Her broodmare career has been equally successful. She is also the dam of Simply The Best (sired by Amurath Baikal), Region 16 and East Coast Champion Mare, Silent Wings (by Amurath Baikal), Region 16 Top Five Sweepstakes Filly and Hearts Afire (by Afire Bey V), Eastern Canadian Breeders Champion Yearling Filly.

Masira’s dam, Shantu+, was one of the top winning English Pleasure and Halter Horses in California, Oregon and Washington in the mid-70's, winning many classes of 20 to 25 horses in both divisions at the same show. The highlight of her show years was the 1974 US Top Ten English Pleasure award. Masira’s sire, Bey Shah+ (US Reserve National Champion Stallion), is legendary in his accomplishments as both an individual and a sire.

Amurath Baikal, the 1980 United States Reserve National Futurity Champion Stallion, brings together two of the most successful horses ever in the Arabian breed, *Bask and *Sanacht. *Sanacht, a German-bred horse, is the second All Time Leading Dam of Champions and consistently imparted quality of structure and refinement of bone to her offspring - as well as her beautiful soft eyes and wonderful disposition. Her offspring are still influential in some of the most important breeding programmes around the world! Baikal‘s sire, *Bask, will always be unforgettable in his contribution to the Arabian breed - the mind, attitude and physical attributes to be an athlete - something we seem to be losing in our breed today. *Bask was a National Champion Halter and Park Horse - proving form to function is feasible.

In Earl Grey++/, we feel we are blessed to have a combination of all this wonderful blood. He is bred to be, and is, a horse who is both beautiful and athletic. He is bred to be, and is, a horse who is kind and intelligent, thoughtful and people loving. But most importantly, Earl Grey++/ is bred to be, and is, a top breeding stallion....

WHAT WE SEE IN THE BABIES - an incredible consistency - long legged, beautiful short coupled bodies, high set on long shapely necks, short pretty faces, tails carried up over their back, and oh, such wonderful, sensible, people loving dispositions...  and the ones old enough to ride - are extremely sensible and are stars!

Please give us a call if you think you may be interested in breeding your mare to this accomplished young breeding stallion.
