*El Shaklan has become a household name in the world of the Arabian horse. His influence spans the globe. His name is found in pedigrees of horses in every country that Arabians are bred in the world and in show winners at every show in the world. He has not only influenced horses through his genotype it is through his phenotype that we can see *El Shaklan, 35 years after his birth, in horses everywhere. He created a distinct look that is unmistakably “El Shaklan.” He and his dam *Estopa are the cornerstone of the Om El Arab breeding program and many successful breeding programs around the world.

Time line of *El Shaklan’s life:

He was bred by Om El Arab and was born in 1975 on the original farm in Germany. He spent two breeding season’s in England at Pat and Joannna Maxwell’s farm where he won several championships including British National Junior Champion Stallion. He returned to Germany in 1978 where he also won the Junior National Champion title. He was shown at the European Championship in Paris and was crowned European Champion. In 1982 *El Shaklan traveled to the United States. He was shown at the US Nationals twice, tying for first place in 1983. He was US Top Ten in 1983 and 1985. *El Shaklan was sold to Brazil in 1985, against Sigi’s wishes. He was Brazilian National Champion Stallion. In 1990 he was again sold to Count Federico Zichi-Thyssen of Argentina. This is where *El Shaklan spent the final years of his incredible life, being royally treated like the king he was.

Rocks for Sigi

Sigi loved a ceremony. She loved the process of being thoughtful and intentional, and she loved people coming together to participate as unified  humanity. In this spirit, we would like to invite you to bring a rock to Sigi’s Celebration of Life. Rocks can represent so many experiences. They can be smooth, with rough edges worn away from much water streaming over them in a river. They can be jagged, cut from rock walls in the earth. They can be
