You dont see so many greats of Egyptian breeding this close in pedigrees nowadays!
He is sired by
ET Crown Prince.
(The Egyptian Prince x RDM Maar Hala)
"I want you to know he was SO SPECIAL!! I could do anything with him. If it had not been for Prince we would not have a program today. He laid the foundation. His personality was human, he would see me and start to whinny, he would follow me, he just was human. I could breed him and then saddle him up and go for a ride.
ET Crown Prince's son Ra'adin Royal Star (Imp USA) was the only line in Australia previously. He was only here for a short time but what an impact he has had in Australia and the world. His most famous son being Simeon Shai (Exp USA).
World Champion, Canadian Champion, US National Champion. All in one year!
Out of only 37 purebred foals the likes of Simeon Sheba, Simeon Sous, Mashuga, Windsor Park Royal Star, Ibn Bataara, Simeon Sucie and Sorella Royal Astra were born.

"AH Abraxas "Abbie" was absolutely an incredible mare. A mare that for me as a breeder of MANY horses there will always be a few that will never leave my heart. To let you know how special she was.. Here we go. Halamaa had a colt by Moonstruk and did not have enough milk for her first baby. He was 10 days old and trying to get Halamaa's milk to come in , was a challenge.. we tried beer we tried special herbs, I did a milk dance, you name it we tried!!! I was exhausted and Halamaa had enough with me and the whole milk thing.
The Egyptian Prince
(Morafic x Bint Mona)
"Pure elegance and smoothness in silhouette, pure elegance in character. Easy going, easy to handle. Saw him with a 5yo child at the leadshank, no problem at all, easy to ride. Every one who was in touch with him was 'touched' by him and loved this horse. His heart was bigger than he was. One of his first owners saw him again five years after he sold him. this horse recognised him after all these years and showed him his affection."

El Hilal means The New Moon.
El Hilal foaled in 1966 at Gleannloch Farm.
It is fair to say he took the show world by storm, producing a massive amount of elite show champions and performance horses.
"El Hilal had a certain dignity about him, evident in the way he comports himself."
Ron Palelek AHW September 1985
"Even at 19 he is a ridiculous showoff. He just has a ball every time you take him out of his stall. He outs his tail over his back and carries on."
Joyce Palelek AHW September 1985
"The legacy that El Hilal will leave to the breed is found in the correctness, capability, beauty and genetic consistency with which he endows his offspring."
AHW September 1985
( Mohssen x Hekmat)
While there is not a lot of information available on this mare I have managed to obtain a video which shows her to be a beautiful fleabitten grey mare. She has wonderful bone and substance and moves beautifully.
