The Selket stallions are sired or grand-sired by our late *Furno Khamal, who was a Halter champion in five nations (Germany, Holland, Belgium, France and the United States). Not only was Khamal a winner at the Salon du Cheval World Championships, but he was also certified by the German government as a Gold Medal athlete. On the performance side of things, Khamal was an accomplished Jumper, Dressage and Racehorse. He ran at Delaware Park and every son or daughter of his on the track was a paycheck horse.
SELKET HORSES TODAY
Khamal’s best sons and grand-sons are here at the farm or under breeding contract to Selket Arabians. Please check the Winner’s Page of this site and see accomplishments – just this year alone – of Selket-blooded horses internationally and you will know that the secret of this breeding program is Khamal blood and the foundation mares that were personally gathered from around the world by Jim Andreson for him.
Our stallions stand at public stud, but only to approved mares. Stallions often get the credit for a successful foal, but they also get the blame if anything goes wrong. Because of this, all outside mares bred to our stallions must be of good quality and we want to study their pedigrees. We require mares bred to our stallions to be checked for SCIDS and any disease or condition which might cause problems with a foal before the breeding will be approved. All of us who love Arabian horses want to produce strong, healthy, beautiful foals and, together, we can do it.
Stud fees for our stallions range from $1,500 to $7,000. This includes vet collection, shipping charges and a repeat breeding if necessary. If a repeat breeding is required, the mare owner only pays for the vet collection and shipping charges.
We have an extensive mailing list and publicity connections for marketing Selket-blooded foals internationally. “Quality” is important to us, and foals are marketed on a commission basis.
We manage a serious, world-class breeding program. Horses carrying the blood of our mares and stallions have won national honors in Europe, South America, Australia, the Middle East, U.S. and Canada for many years. We are not horse traders for hire. We are only interested in marketing horses from our bloodline or horses we represent.
Stallions Personally Chosen by Jim Andreson for the Khamal-blooded Mares
Marwan Al Shaqab
Manager: Michael Byatt Arabians
Who doesn’t admire Marwan? Jim Andreson wanted to see what Marwan could do for Khamal-blooded mares. The wonderful result was a bay colt who grew up to become Brazil’s National Champion Stallion (FA El Shawan, pictured on our Winners Page). The breeding was repeated, and a big, beautiful sister (Selket Marlaina) was born. You can see a picture of Marlaina on our Mares Page, under “Khamal’s Great-Grand-daughter.” We have yearling grand-daughters of Marwan as well, and they, too, are out of Khamal-blooded mares. – RH.
Ghazal Al Shaqab
Manager: Michael Byatt Arabians
Jim was a great believer in Ghazal and we bred one of our premier Khamal daughters to him. Jim was over-joyed when the resulting foal was a bay filly. I showed the filly as a yearling recently under judge Andy Sellman and she won her class. She’s one of my favorites here and it was great fun. – RH.
Da Vinci FM
Jim Andreson was one of the first real believers in Da Vinci. He kept thinking, wouldn’t it be interesting to see what the Khamal daughters would produce to this stallion? With that in mind, he took a chance – and the rest is history. Da Vinci is the sire of our following horses: Selket Louchiano, Selket Angelo, Selket Chancellor, Selket Athena, Selket Da Vita and Selket Mocha … obviously, Jim liked Da Vinci.
We have growthy, happy grand-get of Da Vinci blended with the tall and powerful Khamal. Very classy. – RH.
Owner Stonewall Farm
Marque is a special horse for us, being out of our prized mare Selket Khamala. He is the sire of two fillies here, making both of them doubled-up on Khamal, and one of them includes the blood of Da Vinci as well.
Marque is an ambassador for the Arabian breed on many levels – and he is sought after by breeders internationally. Jim and I visited Marque at his stable in Scottsdale during the show, and I loved him. He is an impressive and treasured stallion. - RH.
Antares El Dakar
Owner Mary Hershberger
Crossing the blood of this stallion with Khamal daughters was an experiment long in the making … years ago, Jim’s friend, Lenita Perroy, visited Jim to see Khamal. She believed the Khamal daughter, Kira El Khamal, would be great for her stallion Ali Jamaal. Jim liked the idea, too. He liked it lot, but the breeding never happened. Recently, we made the acquaintance of Mary Herschberger, owner of a stallion with an interesting pedigree – he was the product of an Ali Jamaal son and daughter mated together. Jim and I went to see him – and Jim booked our best mares to him … the first foal – a grey colt out of the very mare Ms. Perroy and Jim had picked for Ali Jamaal – is exactly what we hoped for. Lenita Perroy was right. It was a golden cross. – RH.
