*DRUZBA++


*DRUZBA++ was foaled in 1964 in Poland, from the last foal crop there of his sire *NABORR, who had been exported the year before. He was imported to the United States in 1969 by Tom Lazor. He was shown in 1974 to the titles of U.S. and Canadian Top Ten Stallion at age 10. His first registered foals were born in 1971, and his final ones in 1984, when he was 20. Among his champion get were three National winners: 1976 U.S. Top Ten Western Pleasure CALIFIQUE, 1979 Canadian Top Ten Gelding DZ CRIMSON STAR, and 1987 U.S. Top Ten Hunt Pleasure JODECO. In his stud career he was bred to a wide variety of mares from a part Egyptian mare bred in Germany, to pure Polish mares and mares of mixed ancestry bred in America. His get were exported to Brazil and the Middle East. In all, he sired 196 registered foals and as of March 15, 2009, he has 1,098 grandget.

*DRUZBA++ís pedigree assured his success in the breeding barn. His sire *NABORR was bred in Russia and spent the first few years of his stud career there before being a chief sire in Poland. He was exported in 1963 when he was bought by Anne McCormick of Arizona and sold for a record price at her dispersal sale in 1969-$150,000, the most ever paid for an Arabian horse up to that date. *NABORR sired 46 North American National winners, among them U.S. National Champion Stallions *ARAMUS++ and GAI ADVENTURE (both also National winners in performance), Canadian Reserve National Champion Mare *ESKADRA++, and U.S. and Canadian National Champion Mare and U.S. Reserve National Champion English Pleasure *DORNABA++ (a 3/4 sister to *DRUZBA++ as she is out of his maternal granddam). *DRUZBA++ís dam *DRUCHNA was imported to America in 1972 at age 15 and produced a lifetime total of 20 offspring, including the American regional winner in halter and performance and National winner sire *DRUCH++ and SW SARUCHNA, dam of U.S. National Champion Stallion and National Champion sire MS SANTANA. *DRUCHNAís sire ROZMARYN has 4 daughters who produced North American National winners including ZNACHORKA (dam of U.S. Reserve National Champion Park *ZBRUCZ) and U.S. Top Ten Mare and National Champion producer *BANDERA. DARDA, the dam of *DRUCHNA, also produced multi-National Champion *DORNABA++ and American regional halter champion and National Champion sire *DAR.

*DRUZBA++ get have had a significant impact on the breed. Like his sire *NABORR, he has been most influential through his daughters, though several of his sons have National winners tracing to them (usually through their daughters). *DRUZBA++ descendants have been successful in the show ring, on the race track and on the endurance trail. His influence is seen every year in National winners in North America-in 2009 his descendants won National titles in hunt pleasure, western pleasure, dressage, English pleasure and halter, including Canadian National Champion Western Pleasure RODAN LTD, U.S. Reserve National Champion Junior Stallion MARHAABAH and U.S. Sporthorse Nationals Supreme Champion VMA KHAHPUR KOPI+++/.

Nine *DRUZBA++ get have produced National winners. His daughter DZ BULLANKA is the dam of 1989 U.S. Top Ten Western Pleasure Junior Horse HEAVENLY WIZJON. Another daughter, DZ MATUSHKA, is the dam of 1981 U.S. and Canadian Top Ten Gelding DZIEN (who is a double grandson of *DRUZBA++ as he is sired by the *DRUZBA++ son DRUZI SZLEM). *DRUZBA++ís son RE DRUZWA sired 1984 Canadian Top Ten Hunter RS THE SEEKER, 1984 Canadian Reserve National Champion Half-Arabian Hunter, 1987 and 1992 U.S. Reserve National Champion Half-Arabian Jumper and 1985 U.S. Top Ten Half-Arabian Hunt Pleasure RS THE EXECUTIVE, 1986 Canadian Top Ten Half-Arabian Western Pleasure and Western Pleasure AOTR RS PLAYBOY, and 1990 U.S. Top Ten Half-Arabian Hunt Pleasure and Show Hack RS DEALERS CHOICE.

*DRUZBA++ appears in the ancestry of several successful race and endurance horses as well as National winners in the show ring. His son DZ MIEKKI is a sire of race winners including the stakes winning mare DCA MUZIEKK, who finished in the money in all of her North American races and was exported to the Middle East.

LOL. Doing this kind of article which traces a horse's influence on the breed is my FAVORITE kind of piece, Cy.

It was a birthday present for Tom Lazor, *Druzba++'s importer, by the way...

Whom also bred my PRESENT stallion, Vezanka, and my *Gondolier daughter, La Banditta, out of a *Bandos dtr. Small world, eh? That Mr. Lazor was a busy boy back in his Ginger Blue days, cranking out masterpiece after Pure Polish masterpiece! I will be doing my tiny part in carrying on his legacy when Vezanka's PP (Beannacht) foals start hitting the ground next year. Wonderful to read of how these lines have bred on. MUCH thanks, Arlene!

(Hope I am adding the photo correctly.) my first mare was a *Lotnik /*Druzba grand-daughter. She definitely resembled *Lotnik in overall conformation, but I'm certain her big dark eyes came from *Druzba.
Great write-up, Arlene!

Wow, wow, wow Andra! What an eye on your mare...I don't think you've shared that photo with me before. Anyone thinking eyes should have balded skin round them needs to see your head photo of your mare-she's got an ideal eye, the sort that sadly is a lot common now. Isn't it wonderful to look at a horse and know where certain traits come from, even if the horse responsible is several generations back?
