Eliko Khaloon with the Michałów Stud team during the visit
On 29th and 30th March, Michałów State Stud welcomed two very special guests, Chen Kedar and Eliko Khaloon of the world-renowned Ariela Arabians based in Israel. The breeders visited Michałów in order to see the foals by SHAMS SHARAV AA and AL AYAL AA, leased from Ariela Arabians and used at our stud for the last few breeding seasons.
Chen and Eliko have been related to Michałów Stud for more than 20 years and they highlighted the fact that preserving this fruitful cooperation which started with the lease of the gorgeous grey LAHEEB is of utmost importance to them. Being the first Straight Egyptian stallion ever used at the Polish state studs, LAHEEB left some outstanding offspring in Michałów, including such incredible individuals as EMIRA (x Embra / Monogramm) and GALILEA (x Georgia / Monogramm). What is more, his refined type and undeniable beauty are noticeable in next generations of Michałów-bred horses that contain his precious blood.
In accordance with the primary goal of their visit, Chen and Eliko carefully examined all the foals by both stallions, gladly sharing their opinion with the breeders of Michałów Stud. However, due to the emotional attachment of the Israeli breeders to our stud, they took great pleasure in visiting all the remaining inhabitants of Michałów stables.
We are extremely pleased with the mutually beneficial cooperation between Michałów State Stud and Ariela Arabians which has worked so well for years and we all hope it will continue for many years to come.
