ZILAL AL HAWAH, which translates as "The Shadow of Love",  is a beautiful 2005 bay stallion, a rare son of the exotic
Farid Nile Moon (Anaza El Farid X GA Moon Tajhalima) and is out of Fairy Phire (Najm Alli X Oh My Shai). Zilal Al Hawah's dark elegance inspired his name, which in Arabic means, “Shadow of Love”. A Dahman Shawan by strain, Zilal Al Hawah's refined and delicately sculpted head bears witness to his tail female descent from Ali Pasha Sherif’s precious El Dahma, referred to by some as “the first queen of Egypt”. His relatively short head, broad forehead, large expressive eyes, small well shaped ears and gently dished profile reflect the iconic features for which this strain has been coveted for centuries.

An exceptionally athletic stallion, Zilal Al Hawah in motion is a beautiful site to behold. His balanced body, excellent neck set and outstanding tail carriage demonstrate an inherent nobility, documented by his royal pedigree. Zilal Al Hawah carries 11 lines to Ansata Ibn Halima ++, the only imported Egyptian stallion to sire both a U.S. Champion Stallion (Ansata Ibn Sudan) and a U.S. Champion Mare (FA Halima). In addition, his ancestry includes many Egyptian Arabian legends, such as: Ruminaja Ali, Shaikh Al Badi, Anaza El Farid, Bint Deena, Imperial Imperior, Ansata Aziza, Simeon Shai, to name only a few. Through Zilal Al Hawah, contemporary breeders have the opportunity to access the genetic gifts of some of the most desired and prepotent Egyptian Arabian bloodlines of all times.

Although Zilal's famous sire, Farid Nile Moon, died at only seven years of age, his impact on the show ring and in the breeding shed has been remarkable. Considering that both of his parents, as well as all four of his grandparents are National winner producers, it is not surprising that Farid Nile Moon was an International sensation in the breeding shed as well as in the show ring. Uanimously awarded Supreme Champion Stallion at the 2001 Egyptian Event as well as being named the Leading Halter Sire at the Egyptian Event in 2003, 2006 and 2007, Farid Nile Moon has sired Champions the U.S.A. and the Middle East.

Zilal Al Hawah's dam, Fairy Phire, blends top Egyptian bloodlines established through the famous imports of the 1950's with more recent EAO breeding through the beautiful mare, Nazarat. Bred by the EAO and born in Egypt in 1977, Nazarat was the beautiful bay dam of Bahimm (grandaughter on her dam's side, and traces in tail female through the imported Pritlaff matriarch, Bint Dahma, thence through Farida back to El Dahma. Carol Rice vividly recalls one particular day during Fairy Fire's pregnancy with Zilal Al Hawah, "Fairy Phire was in foal to Farid Nile Moon when I received the news that Farid Mile Moon had died. I went out to Fairy's stall, sat with her and cried. I told Fairy that this foal she was carrying was even more important now. Little did I know that she would give Farid Nile Moon back to us! Zilal looks very much like his celebrated sire.”

Carol describes Zilal as a quiet, laid back horse who exudes an air of regality. “He draws attention with his serene attitude and quiet beauty” says Carol. One would expect that Zilal's size is a bit of attention getter as well. “While retaining his refinement, he is almost 16 hands high and he passed his size, overall balance, correctness, smoothness, short head and large round eyes to both of his fillies”, remarked Carol. Now under saddle, Carol reports that Zilal is doing quite well, “He's a wonderful Hunter Under Saddle, and is starting Dressage training”.
