Nesma el Bahr-2001 Black purebred Mare

(Sophiras Amir-MHR Port Ghezala by Port Bask)

Nesma is a horse with a unique story to tell. It began with the acquisition of her dam MHR Port Ghezala from an auction. I knew the minute I saw her that she was something special and when I saw the freezebrand on her neck I decided to bring her home no matter what. Within 10 minutes of having her home I had shaved down  her neck and checked the freezebrand to discover her identity. I was shocked to discover that she had once been a very valued broodmare and bred to some of the finest stallions of her time, some more than once- Muscat and Naturel among them. Her foals had champion show records in halter and performance including one son who was an awesome Endurance horse! Her pedigree was full of some of the greatest Arabians who had ever lived and here she had been thrown away like old dishwater. From that moment on she was known around here as the "Queen Mother". Luckily, I was able to get one foal- Nesma- out of her, and what a happy surprise to get such a lovely black filly. Things went well up until a few years ago when a client of my husbands "borrowed" Ghezala for a tease mare. Just before Ghezala was due to return for the winter she passed away. Sad as it was to lose her, I knew her last years had been good ones. I had pulled her hair months before to use as a DNA sample when registering Nesma and was in the process of doing the necessary paperwork to  have Ghezala transfered into my name so I could register her filly. Well a few short weeks after her death I went to get the hair and found it gone. Seems when my daughter helped me clean up the office she accidently threw it out. The registry informed me that I needed a cannon bone and some teeth- so I needed to exhume the body, not something I was looking forward to but to perserve Nesma's heritage I knew I'd find the strenth. Unfortunatley, the woman who borrowed Ghezala became very upset and absolutley refused to let me do it. I still have one longshot chance of being able to register Nesma as a purebred so I haven't given up yet. Just seems so sad that due to the fact that "rules must be followed" (proving her parentage through bloodtype or DNA) she may never be registered. If it were her sire I could understand- as accidents can happen. But I was present at Nesma's birth, I KNOW who she came out of and I have a zillion identifying photos. Still, there is a chance and I think it's worth every shot.  We did breed one purebred foal (a black filly of all things!) from Nesma before we knew about the missing DNA and she was awesome! Now, she is in foal to our buckskin stallion Elaan for March 2006, and we are hoping for a palomino or buckskin that we can retain for our program. Hopefully, we will manage to solve the registration difficulties in the near future and breed her for purebreds again. For more photos and her complete pedigree scroll down.
