Hi all, I have a 20 yrs young mare named Sildalia brahim. She had a colt about 10 yrs ago when she was owned by another person who moved out of the country...ihe was the only baby she ever had. My mare is out of Ibn brahim...a sidi brahim son and a polish bred dam C J Barishka. I always wonder if her son is still alive and well etc. I thought maybe someone here could help me find him....it may sound strange but I would like her to have closure...he was weaned and sold right away. Previous owner wanted a filly out of her and bred her multiple times but she never carried to term again. She is happily my pet, riding horse, and friend to my three geldings for the last 6 years. Recently she saw a foal for the first time since I have had her and she was frantic...calling to the foal and really beside herself...my heart broke for her as she looked confused ( it was an Arabian foal too!). Thanks in advance for any advice.

Hi I was told that Mexico Sidi was mentioned on here. I actually sold the colt about 6 months after my Grandfather bought him. He had the sweetest disposition. The gentleman that owned the farm where we were stabled at at the time "had to have him". So he made us an offer and we thought he would have a great life since he was so gaga for this colt. To my surprise, which it shouldn't be since it's happened before, I come to find out he was never transfered out of my name. I can say that he was incredibly easy to handle and we had planned on gelding him, but he was sold before we got the chance. He just wasn't "exceptional" in a way that would keep him uncut. I can tell you that he was ALL MANE AND TAIL. He was registered black, however he was going to grey. Mexico V was owned by a trainer who in turned had a training client who eventually bought Mexico Sidi. The "client" had a magnum colt as well. She knew I liked Mexico Sidi so when she got a job in Tennessee (she was a nurse) she offered him to us and took the Magnum colt with her. Mexico Sidi wasn't a large horse by any means. He would have matured to no more than 14.2. Since I'm only 5'1, he was perfect for me. I wish I had more info for you.

Jenna...just now reading this Post. How wonderful you have an Ibn Brahim daughter! Ibn is now 31 years of age, and still such a Noble beauty! I had often wondered where Mexico Sidi ended up, so was happy to read this about him too...your mare sounds so lovely, and a baby lover too...the best kind of mares :)

I know this is a (relatively) old thread but I just now saw it tonight; as far as closure for your mare, even if you found her son & reunited them, I doubt it would keep her from "yearning" for another baby. My mares (that have had foals) are all like this - they reallllllyyyyyy wannnnntttt every baby they see. This is not uncommon in mares, which is why newborns & their dams need to be kept separated from other horses the first few days, or other mares may "steal" the baby. Just wanted to share, that your mare's behavior is just typical of most mother horses - they want to be mothers to every baby it seems!
