| BINT MORSADA (Ali Saroukh ex Morsada) Grey filly born 6/16/2007
Miracle Baby Born at Fair Oak Farm:
Pictured is Fair Oak Farm's senior foundation mare, Morsada [*Assadd+++ ex Morgana by *Morafic] at 25 years young with her new 2007 straight Egyptian filly, Bint Morsada, at 10 minutes of age, sired by the beautiful Silver Maple stallion Ali Saroukh, born 6/9/07. Miraculously, not only did Morsada become pregnant with only one servicing, but she carried her foal herself, to full term & had a speedy, textbook delivery at a very civilized mid-morning hour on the grass. She even waited until the coffee was finished brewing to commence final labor! All efforts to attain & retain pregnancy, including embryo transplants, had failed for years, due to a torn cervix, tempermental hormone levels and various other complications. We had completely given up, which was heartbreaking, because Morsada at 24 looked AT LEAST 15 years younger than her actual age. However one spring morning I turned her loose to graze on the lawn--and the only thing Morsada wanted to do was visit with the boys. At that moment I just KNEW she was fertile, so I called up the Dr. Lisa Tesky at Alamo Pintado & sure enough, not only had her cervix tear finally somehow healed itself but everything else looked great & ready to go. I then called Christy Metz who enthusiastically agreed to help give it a try & recommended Ali Saroukh as the ideal candidate. Our prayers were answered with a BEAUTIFUL grey filly....and the neat part is that Morsada gave birth to her own filly in the same month that she ALSO became a great-grandmother....
