Bay/grey pure Crabbet licensed stallion by Binley
Prince Salim x Pevensey Zariffia (imp Australia), born April 2016,
Tragically, his dam Zariffia suffered a prolapsed colon giving
birth to him as he was too large and three weeks late. So at two
in the morning with the help of the National Foaling Bank, we
located a big Belgium draught mare Blondie. She fostered the orphaned
Hadiya brilliantly for which we are very grateful to her owner

Pure Crabbet stallion, Hadiya, on his
first day under saddle with Martin
at Nightingdale Farm in Autumn 2019
When Hadiya was three in late autumn 2019,
his trainer Martin started backing him. He has taken to
lessons and schooling very well. Hadiya is now being hacked
out on the road prior to starting dressage training for
a very novice season in 2020.
Hadiya is based with Susan Hawes, his future
rider, at Nightingdale Farm in Sussex, conveniently close
to specialist AI vet Dr Madeleine Campell for future collections
of his fresh and chilled semen for Crabbet mares.
In addition to gaining Gold at the British
Breeding Youngstock Evaluations in 2019, he was awarded
the Futurity Trophy by the Crabbet Organisation.
After training Hadiya to the dummy mare and collecting and analysing
his semen in spring 2019, AI specialist vet Dr Madeleine Campbell
said: "It has been a delight to start Hadiya off on his
stud career this season. He is a rare example of a stallion with
that optimal combination of fantastic bloodlines, good performance
conformation, and an outstandingly pleasant and intelligent temperament.
Better still, his semen quality is excellent, as attested to by
the pregnancies resulting from the first few inseminations using
this lovely young stallion. Congratulations to Gadebrook Arabians
for breeding such a fantastic ambassador for the breed".
Hadiya is retained by Gadebrook as his bloodlines, temperament
and conformation are just what the Crabbet gene pool needs.

Hadiya is SCID + LFS clear, as are all the horses at Gadebrook
Stud. For breeding, these conditions need to be known as
breeding two animals with a lethal gene like Lavender Foal
Syndrome, or Severe Combined Immuno-Deficiency, can result
in the death of the foal. This is why Hadiya is such an
important stallion for the future of the Crabbet gene pool
- he carries fresh blood lines, the rare bay gene from Australia
and is free from carrying lethal conditions.
