Mandouba(HALEEM x OKHT AL-NADBA)
2000 Grey Mare
The grand matriarch of the Athbah Desert Bred horses was the fantastic producer, Mandouba. A gleaming white beauty with a regal bearing, three of her foals have earned significant honors in competition against other breeders’ Saudi Desert stock. Three times the Saudi Desert Bred Senior Mare Champion, Mandouba embodied many of the dominant qualities of the desert horses; strong bone, straight legs, an ease of motion, a long, clean neck and throat, expressive ears, depth of chest, high-set tail and strong back, with a clean, short head and large expressive eyes. Along with her willing attitude, which is also particularly desirable, Mandouba was a potent producer who gave her finest attributes to her foals. Although she has now passed on, her sons and daughter will continue to build on her legacy.
