It was an exciting Egyptian Event this year for Anita and Harry Polk, and for their stunning Masada Mazal who is by Fa Asar x Masada Fa Hannah
(who is by Fabo). M&M (as he is known to his many admirers), is a 2001 Straight Babson/Straight Egyptian/Sheykh Obeyd stallion, bred by the late-great Walter Schimanski, and owned by the Polks.
Walter was no doubt smiling down with pride when M&M was honored with the Egyptian Performance Horse Award, presented by Markel Insurance at the 2011 Egyptian Event. Prior to receiving that award, M&M captivated the crowd with a demonstration in Show Hack. M&M also won Reserve Championship in the Native Costume Class on Saturday of the Egyptian Event, just his second time showing in that class.
Sheykh Obeyd breeders throughout the world appreciate the achievements of this truly beautiful and talented stallion, an outstanding ambassador of this rare group of horses. We all hope to see more of M&M at the Egyptian Event in 2012!
