picture is taken at Källvikens Arabstuteri. He comes from the same mare family
as Maz (his mother was a sister to Maz).
He has competed in endurance and is the sire of the successful endurance horse
belongs to the dam line of Sahara OA imp 1845 to Jarczowce. The strain is Kuhailan
and the only direct line from Sahara OA is that from her daughter Sahara Slepka
OA who was foaled in transit. Many members of this family perished in World War
I and only two mares were saved, Pomponia 1902 and her daughter by Kohejlan OA,
Zulejma 1914. After the war Pomponia had two more daughters, Dora 1922 by Bakszysz
and Bona 1920 by Mazepa I. Of the postwar daughters, only Dora had any impact
on the breed.
Despite the sorry state this family was in after WW I it
has since grown and is now one of the major families, both in quality and quantity.
Dora 1922 was the dam of the stallion Omar II by Hardy and his full
sister *Nora, imported to USA by J.M Dickinson. The most important of her produce
however was the mare Krucica 1929 by Farys II. She was the dam of a little filly
that managed to survive the walk to Tersk by her dam's side. This little filly,
Mammona, was perhaps the best horse ever added to the russian breeding program
which is really no surprise when you look at her pedigree. She was by Ofir and
thus a sister to the famous "W" stallions and on her mothers side she
had two lines to the strong Sahara OA line and her sire added another since his
dam was a granddaughter of Pomponia 1902.
Mammona 1939 entered the breeding
program at Tersk as soon as it was possible and had the mare Nomenklatura by Naseem
in 1943. She gave birth to a total of 18 foals, 12 stallions and 6 mares. Five
of the mares were used and one of the stallions, Pomeranets by Priboj. Her daughter
Monopolia 1956 by Priboj was the dam of *Maritsa by Arax imp Sweden. Monopolia
was also the dam of *Monogramma by Knippel, the dam of the stallion Mamluk imp
*Maritsa was the dam four stallions and four mares. Her daughter
*Maricedia by *Cedr was dam of the stallions Maz and Mazur and the mares Marzenie,
*Mazurka, Marinka and *Makrela.
