Falconwood Arabians

News & Announcements

Falconwood Legacy Bloodstock said, "Goodbye" to our Senior Foundation Mare, BINT ZAARINA, on July 17th, 2013. Zaarina was a 1988 daughter of Ruminaja Ali. It was with heavy hearts that we lost such a treasure, unexpectedly. Zaarina was intelligent, sweet and majestic. She was a favorite of all that met her. Zaarina was cherished and she held a special place in our hearts...she was irreplaceable. When we first saw Zaarina we thought she was a charismatic, young stallion. She was big and bold, with a commanding presence. Zaarina always had, "snort and blow" while showing-off in any arena. After finding out this incredible Arabian was a mare it was only days until she arrived at Falconwood, her "Home for Life."

Zaarina was a Multi-Champion Show Mare and garnered Champion World Class Mare, Five and Older, and Reserve Senior Champion Mare, at the 1994 Egyptian Event. Zaarina qualified for Nationals competition at Region 9, winning the Blue. She went to Canadian Nationals and U. S. Nationals, sharing the trailer with Thee Desperado, where both were shown. These were "Historical events" for us. Zaarina won solid Top Tens in Open Mare Halter at both Nationals with Shawn Crews. The classes were deep with PB Arabian mares that were highly promoted and were from large farms in and out-of-country. Zaarina went through Elimination Classes before getting to the actual Top Ten competition because there were so many competitors in her classes.

Zaarina was a true "Spirit of the Desert" and loved being with her humans. She gave us many endearing moments and was always ready to give and receive "Hugs." Falconwood isn't the same without her lovely face greeting everyone as they come through the barn. Always remembered, never to be forgotten...BINT ZAARINA, otherwise known as,, "My Big Beautiful Girl."

Congratulations to one of our own, THEE REVOLUTION, Unanimous Champion, Most Classic Head, at the 2004 Egyptian Event in Lexington, Kentucky. REVOLUTION was bred by Falconwood and sold to the Middle East. He is currently being shown and managed by International Equine Management, Eileen Verdieck.


Falconwood Legacy Bloodstock and Dogwood Springs Arabians held an "Egyptian Day" celebration on Saturday, May 22nd. The local community of Longview gave wonderful support and accolades to the seven Egyptian Arabians shown at "Presentations" throughout the day. There was a continuously, large crowd in attendance and many new people were introduced to beautiful representatives of the straight Egyptian Arabian.

The horses were shown at Liberty, at Halter and in Native Costume, while speakers Marilyn Thomas and Jerel Kerby gave tidbits of the history and romance that make up the illustrious past of our Egyptian Arabians. Descriptions were given of each of the classes, along with how the horses are judged. The music was good, the horses spectacular, and all seemed to have a great time.

A popular radio station was broadcasting on-site and interviewing people in attendance. People were enjoying themselves and the Egyptian Arabians got rave reviews. The DJ gave us several spots on the radio to advertise our farms and talk about the horses being presented. He advertised our location and the "Egyptian Day" presentations through the afternoon.

We met successful business owners, owners of other breeds, people that had never seen an Arabian, and those that just wanted to have an "Arabian Experience." We enjoyed visiting with them all.

Other highlights of the day included a (free) drawing for a new saddle and a miniature pony. A Purina representative gave information about nutrition and the feeding of Arabians. Unsolicited sponsors from the community volunteered to donate discount coupons and prizes to the public. We encountered a great community spirit and support by local businesses.

The last of the 2003 foals to be born at Falconwood, is a very sweet, chestnut and flaxen, filly by THEE GAMBLER. This little "Angel" is a great way to conclude another year of spectacular foals by THEE GAMBLER.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! We were just informed that another THEE GAMBLER son, THEE PHARAOH, has garnered two Regional Top Fives. One at Regionals in Tennessee and one in the Mississippi Regional show. THEE PHARAOH placed third at both shows in, Four and Five Year Old Stallions. No lack of competition at these shows. He competed in a class of twenty, and the other, a class of 13. PHARAOH (Thee Gambler x Bint Bint Gemaal) is owned by Lynn and Ruth Woolls. Congratulations!!! We hope to receive recent photos of THEE PHARAOH in the near future. Congratulations, also, on the new, 2003, chestnut and flaxen filly by PHARAOH.

Egyptian Event 2003

The first week in June is always a special occasion for Falconwood Legacy Bloodstock at the Egyptian Event, in Lexington, Kentucky. Our stall area was convenient and sporting our new drapes, we put on a new face for 2003.

SHABAB JAMAL, U. S. National Top Ten Futurity Stallion and FALCONWOOD, Junior Stallion, was presented at the stalls. He was a big hit, garnering many new admirers and acting as if he were the "Star." And, actually he was!

SHABAB's very first foal crop presented us with some beautiful fillies, like the one below. We have been pleased with the cross of SHABAB on our THEE GAMBLER daughters, and this filly is a wonderful example of that cross. (There will be more photos to come of SHABAB foals. Check back on our sales list, in the near future.)
