Hennessey Arabians says a sorrowful goodbye to a marvelous mare...
Sweet Shalimar V
May 13, 1990 - May 6, 2018
"Shalimar" was bred and formerly owned by Sheila Varian. Her quality and style was typical of the Varian program. She was sired by the incomparable Ali Jamaal and out of the famous Huckleberry Bey daughter, Sweetinspiration V. Shalimar was the dam of multiple successful foals including the Western Pleasure sensation, Sundance Kid V.
Sweet Shalimar and her best friend of 10 years, Pepesza lived in the HennesseyLand geriatric pasture together. On My 13th, when we knew it was time to let Shalimar go, Pepesza roamed the pasture as the last mare standing in the senior/retired division of Hennessey Arabians, desperately searching for her friend. We put our beloved miniature donkeys, Nancy G and Coco Chanel in the pasture with Pepesza to keep her company. It was sad goodbye for us all.
We will be forever grateful to the days, months and years that we were able to provide a loving home to this wonderful mare.
