Breeding Beautiful Arabians in Santa Ynez Valley since 1977.
Fair Oak Farm is located in the heart of the “Arabian Neighborhood” in beautiful Santa Ynez Valley, California. The focus of our breeding program is our straight Egyptian foundation mare, Morsada (*Asadd+++ ex Morgana by *Morafic) and emphasizes her tail female line of *Bint Maisa El Saghira crossed into the *El Shaklan and Padrons Psyche sire lines. The females from this cross have been bred back to stallions featuring various intensities of *Estopa in their pedigree as well as straight Egyptian stallions. We strive to create a classic and exotic look in our horses, with overall balance and freedom of motion topped off with a beautiful head, expressive eyes and a people-friendly disposition.
Morsada was bred by the internationally respected James M. Kline, one of the most prominent Egyptian breeders in the world. She was widely considered to be one of the finest examples of his breeding program, and was actively utilized as a broodmare until the Kline Arabians dispersal, at which point we were incredibly fortunate to acquire her. She is notated in several key Egyptian Arabian reference publications and has also been featured in numerous books, magazines and calendars all over the world.
Morsada has created a legacy of over 62 first and second generation descendants in the United States, Europe, Australia and the Middle East, most recently her last straight Egyptian daughter, Bint Morsada, now owned by Mr. Fahad Hujailan of Al Kout Stud in Kuwait, as well as her grandson, Amir Shaklan, purchased from Fair Oak by Shannon Anderson to be her chief herd sire at Dahabi Arabians in Stevensville, Montana. We occasionally have select individuals for sale, and are also happy to connect prospective buyers to our clientswho are actively breeding from our lines both domestically as well as internationally.
On the performance side, we specialize in Half-Arabian English horses and periodically offer exceptional show horses for purchase. Additionally we have excellent contacts in the Central California performance horse network across all divisions including trail and working cow, so please do give us a call if you are in the Santa Ynez area—if we don’t have a horse to fit your need, we will be happy to refer you to the right farm, trainer or agent.
