Re: [RC] Info on Ansata Ibn Halilma Get - patty bass

 to add to this thread.  i just completed the LBL 50 on a grandaughter of Ansata el Naseri. her first 50. total time was one minute  under 9  hours.  she is very very feminine and eats like a dainty princess but still only got a B for mucus membranes and  impulsion at the final vet check.  she negotiated the foot deep in mud trails with a willing attitude and was ready to go on at the end. A sweeter mare i don't  think  you could find. she got it all from her sire.  her  dam is extremely opinionated. LOL
just my own brag

Hi Maggie,
    We agree - and since our senior stallion Salazar SF is a SE grandson of Ansata Ibn Halima AND a great grandson through Sudan, we feel strongly that SE horses of AIH lines can be extremely capable - so long as the ability is not bred out in the interest of type, stretch, trot, or whatever the current predilection might be. Since his damline is also to Nazeer through *Rashad Ibn Nazeer (Sal's grandsire) - a superb, and proven, athlete himself - the genotype expressed has been one of athletic ability and a gentle temperament. While lacking in some type through the face, Sal produces type generally associated with the AIH horses, since his sire, El Majiid was quite correct and typey.
Sal's misfortune in his career was first to have torn a rear suspensory a few years back, and had even goen on to a few 50s and LDs afterward - but the worst was 4 seasons ago when he suffered a bacterial infection - and endocarditis - that nearly killed him, and indeed, should have ended any active career he had. Ultimately his well bred constitution worked well, and our vet staff as well as the world renown Equine Cardio Ultra siound specialist Norm Rentanen's surprise, Sal is STILl alive and healthy enough at 19, and has even completed 4 25-35 milers and one 50. HE also in 2002 garnered massive Cal Circuit B championships and High Point awards with our daughter aboard, riding from sunup to sundown - on a stallion who should have been dead.
So - as for those AIH horses, I wouldn't trade Sal for anything.
