It is time to say Goodbye to a truly special horse!
All good things have to come to an end, so a few days ago we had to say goodbye and farewell to AJ Kafu (Shanghai EA x AJ Kahayla), proudly bred and owned by H.H. Sheikh Ammar Bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Crown Prince of Ajman.
We are extremely happy with Kafu's foals in Israel and look forward to seeing his next foal crop; some of our best mares are in foal to this young stallion for 2023. We wish to thank H.H. Sheikh Ammar Bin Humaid Al Nuaimi for trusting us with his beloved stallion and we hope to collaborate together again in the near future.
We would like to also express our heartfelt thanks to Elisa Grassi and Frank Sponle, for their help in making this endeavor possible.

At only one year and one month old, and competing in the showring for the very first time, our colt Paladin AA simply rocked at the golden beach of Menton. This son of Al Ayal AA, bred by Janow Podlaski Stud of Poland, simply loves to show and entered the ring like a desert storm. He danced around the ring with his tail up, snorting in the direction of the judges, and trotted just as his ancestors did in the sands of the Arabian desert for generations.
Paladin ended up winning first place in his class with 93.08 Points, including six 20's and also won the title Best Head of the class.
In the championship finals the young guy was tired, which was apparent in his stand up, yet he still moved extremely well. He ended with the title of 2022 Menton Arab Horse Show Bronze Champion Yearling Colt. Paladin was born and bred at the great Janow Podlaski Stud of Poland, home of generation after generation of well bred horses. His dam Prometida, is a daughter of three times World Champion Kahil Al Shaqab and out of Panonia (Eukaliptus x Pilar). Pilar (Fawor x Pipi) traces to the same dam line as the Polish queen Pianissima, through the well-known mare Pilarka.
We wish to thank Janow Stud for choosing to cover some of their best mares with Al Ayal AA. The credit for breeding this exciting colt belongs totally to you!
We also want to thank the wonderful team of Privilege Stud for taking care of Paladin and preparing him for the showring in a very short time, but in the best possible way. And a special thank you to Raphael Curti who handled Paladin in such a great, natural way! Well done!

We would like to introduce a very special yearling colt. His name is Paladin AA.

Paladin is proudly bred by the National Stud of Poland - Janow Podlaski and now owned by Ariela Arabians.
This eye-catching yearling colt is a son of Al Ayal AA (Al Ayad x The Vision HG), out of the Janow bred mare Prometida, a daughter of three times World Champion Kahil Al Shaqab and out of Panonia (Eukaliptus x Pilar).
Paladin AA brings together The Vision HG and the exquisite Polish mare Pilarka (Palas x Pierzga) through her accomplished granddaughter Pilar (Fawar x Pipi). The combination of these two powerful dam lines will make for a wonderful genetically-charged breeding horse.
The future of Paladin looks very bright.
Paladin will be handled by Raphael Curti of Privilege Arabians.

We are happy to welcome a new addition to our breeding program, the Janow Podlaski bred Alpina AA. This nine year old mare is one of the first foals of our homebred Abyad AA, a son of Nader Al Jamal out of Al Amal AA (Halim Shah I x The Vision HG) who was leased to Janow Stud at the age of nine months by stud director, Mr. Marek Trela. Abyad stood at Janow for a few breeding seasons, and produced extremely well for Janow Stud. Perhaps his best known daughters are the mare Prunella (out of Pradera), who was named Gold Champion Filly at the Polish Nationals in 2016 and the mare Pila (out of Piba) who was named Gold Champion Mare at the 2021 Sopot Arabian Horse Show in Poland.
Alpina herself is a daughter of the well known Alabama (Gazal Al Shaqab x Altona by Eukaliptus), tracing to the dam line of the great Polish mare Algeria (Celebes x Algonkina). We look forward to see how Apina will fit into our breeding program and create her own family here.

He was handled beautifully by Tom Oben and Mussa Nijm!

We would like to inform our clients and friends that due to the high demand for AJ Kafu breedings, we asked Ajman Stud to extend his lease.
They kindly agreed to give us one more month, so this multi-champion stallion will stay in Israel until the end of June 2022.
Please note that those who purchase breedings during Kafu's stay in Israel will have the right to use his frozen semen. However, no new breeding will be sold after his departure from Israel.

Great results to the Al Ayal fillies shown at the Katara International Peninsula Horse Show in Qatar, a show for Straight Egyptian Horses. Al Shaqab showed two fillies of their own breeding in two Yearling Classes. One filly, Gazaa Al Shaqab (out of Zenab Albadeia) was first in her class with 92.13 points. The other filly, Lehweilah Al Shaqab (out of Jafla Al Shaqab) was 2nd in the other yearling class with 92 points. By the end of the show, the ultra feminine filly, Gazaa Al Shaqab, was named Bronze Champion Filly. Both fillies were beautifully shown by Rapheal Curti for Al Shaqab Stud. Well done and Alf Mabrouk!

We are happy to welcome our first AJ Kafu's foal; a beautiful grey filly, with a stunning attitude. Just what we were hoping for! This filly, still not named, is out of one of our best Laheeb daughters, Basmah AA (Laheeb x Al Baraqai AA). She traces to The Vision HG through her oldest daughter Al Baraqai AA (by Baahir). This filly has it all: beautiful head with big black eyes, great body and an amazing attitude with great tail carriage.
AJ Kafu (Shanghai EA x AJ Kahayla by QR Marc) is proudly bred and owned by Ajman Stud from the UAE. He will stay in Israel for a few more months and then will return to his homeland.

"...and I circle ten thousand years long; And I still don't know if I'm a falcon, a storm, or an unfinished song" (Rainer Maria Rilke)

The sky earned a very special star tonight...
We were devastated to learn that one of the best horses we ever bred at Ariela Arabians, Shaheen AA, is gone.
He was simply too good to stay for long in this world. Time after time he managed to get over all the struggles life put in front of him. Tonight his short life's journey came to an end, much too soon. Shaheen, you will always be our unfinished song...
