MAYSOUN, Grey stallion, 1985 (Ansata Halim Shah / Maysouna)
Breeders & Owners: Karin & Gunter Maiworm, Maiworm Stud.
Strain: Seglawi Jedran of Ibn Soudan (Roga 1882).
The Verband der Zuchter und Freunde des Arabischen Pferdes awarded their WAHO Trophy for the first time in 2006. The recipient was named as the 25-year old stallion, Maysoun, a distinguished sire with offspring spread throughout Europe and also to be found in the Middle East.
The reason Maysoun was chosen for this special award is that he is the only stallion in Germany who has produced 8 sons which have all been awarded a Gold Medal at the annual German Stallion Show. Among the “great 8” are Maydan-Madheen (out of Mesoudah-M); Authentic Ibn Nawaal (out of AK Nawaal) and Orashaan (out of Orasha). These three ‘Golden’ sons were exhibited to the enthusiastic audience in a special ceremony at the 2006 Nations Cup Show in Aachen, Germany, as proof of the prepotency of Maysoun as a sire of significance. The WAHO Trophy was presented to Mrs. Karin Maiworm by Dr. Hans-J. Nagel, President of WAHO.
