Bay/grey pure Crabbet licensed stallion by
Binley Prince Salim x Pevensey Zariffia (imp Australia),
born April 2016, died in a freak field accident July 2020.
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 Wendy Davies.

Hadiya, sire of our three
yearlings, gained Gold and was the Leading Three-Year
Old in the Endurance section in the 2019 national British
Breeding evaluations and won the Reserve Endurance Championship;

Forest in June 2020
Hadiya was based with Susan
Hawes and her trainer Martin at Nightingale Farm in Sussex.
Susan and Hadiya rode out together through Ashdown Forest
in preparation for his career under saddle in dressage
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".
What a loss, especially as he was free from
all known genetic mutations and carried the bay gene, very
rare in pure Crabbet Arabians.
