Desperado V X Aberjahna
2002 Black bay mare
15.2 hh

"Desi" is a lovely example of Varian breeding crossed with Babson breeding on her dam's side.  She is a very tall, exotic mare with a hooky long neck, beautiful typey head, large eye, and a sweet disposition.  Desi is big-bodied with a large trot.  Presently she has three foals and is currently leased to Dahban Arabians.  

Congrats to Dahban Arabians on their 2011 beautiful dark bay colt by A Bit Of Flash and out of Desperansa!!

DESPERANSA combines the best of Varian and Egyptian breeding with a tail female line that traces to the French import *KOLA. With her pedigree she should produce foals with great type and athletic ability.
