The Black Stallion

For more than twenty years, Awesome Knight has been the cornerstone of Kenlyn Arabian's breeding program. 
His offspring have excelled in the show ring and on the trail and include multiple Tevis finishers.
He's a beautiful, gentle, storybook kind of stallion. 
No surprise, my niece, Lilie, fell head over heels in love with him while she was here. 
I wish she could have seen him a few days ago.
This normally kind horse was temporarily replaced by a Walter Farley type fury. I have no idea what got into him, but it was amazing. He looked so fierce.
He's almost thirty years old, so this didn't last very long. In fact, it was over almost as soon as it started.
Still, I'm really glad I got to see it. As much as I love Awesome's gentle nature, I was equally delighted with his Black Stallion display.
Stay wild, old man. Stay wild.


  1. I lease a little pinto pony gelding who has moments just like these. They are longer lived because he is 16, not 30. Awesome looks so Awesome! Arabians are the masters of ageing gracefully.

  2. Just like the POA l leased, 24 but as fiery as ever! Awesome is beautiful 😆

  3. Ohhhh he has that exquisite "dry" look that Arabians are prized for. He's the epitome of a classic Arabian stallion. Thank you so much for sharing these beautiful photos. Oh how I love Arabians & especially stallions. Yes, stay wild Awesome Knight!! <3 <3

  4. Fly bit him, I betcha. My mare did a compete backflip after one got her on the rump.
