April 5-6th, Arabians Ltd. hosted its semi-annual client-only seminar, and this one was its biggest ever! We welcomed over 120 clients from all over the country for a weekend filled with experts sharing knowledge and, as always, a huge celebration of the Egyptian Arabian horse.

This weekend, we had 2 additional reasons to celebrate. First, exactly 19 years ago on April 5th, Thee Desperado was born! As he was presented in his beautiful Egyptian Event 11 Year Leading Sire blanket, a hush fell over the crowd, followed by cheers. With a birthday celebration fit for a king, Desperado “met” his Breyer horse likeness, enjoyed a carrot cake, and was serenaded with an acapella, folky rendition of “Happy Birthday” by the famous Dash Crofts, who owns one of his daughters with his wife Louise.
