(2001 MARE BY BOTSWANA)
In October of 1984, at the El Zahraa Stud in Cairo, Egypt, a bay filly was born. Of royal parentage, her sire, Ikhnatoon, was the leading stallion at El Zahraa from 1974 until his death in 1986. Her dam, Solafa, a granddaughter of El Araby, was a valued broodmare at the same farm, and, so desirable were the offspring of this nick that very few could be afforded by any but the Middle Eastern stud farms.
Fardousa was imported to the US in 1986, and was acquired by Talaria at 17 years of age in the spring of 2000, to be bred to Botswana. So successful has been this cross of Fardousa and Botswana, Fardousa was one of the most esteemed broodmares in our herd. She gave us three gorgeous fillies, the lovely Nairobi (see photo and text in “Mares,”) Setswana, and, in 2004, a truly exquisite black bay filly, Falisha bint Fardousa.
Fardousa won the 2005 Egyptian Event’s Produce of Dam class with TF Nairobi & Falisha Bint Fardousa representing her.
Her three daughters are now proud contributing broodmares in our herd.
