Thee Desert Rose

Egyptian Arabian mare Thee Desert Rose

2005 Bay Egyptian Arabian Mare
2012 Egyptian Event Champion Produce of Dam & Multi-champion Mare

Thee Desert Rose is our reigning queen of the farm! The first horse we purchased, when she was just a weanling, Thee Desert Rose is a true blossom of the desert with bloodlines tracing back to the stud of Muhammad Ali the Great Viceroy of Egypt (1805 – 48) and beyond as her name denotes.


She is the foundation mare for Misty Valley Arabians and has been shown by Dr. Danny Heithold and his wife Carol to the winner’s circle! She has competed in open Arabian class “A” shows as well as the Egyptian Event US. She has garnered multiple championships in her career. Of course a mare this valuable is now living the pampered life of a Misty Valley broodmare. She has produced two exceptional foals to date, and at the 2012 Egyptian Event, they represented her to win CHAMPION Produce of Dam for her!

In March 2015, Thee Desert Rose gave the world the first foal by Ansata Sinan son Al Fayed!

Nasheetah MVA

Al Fayed x Thee Desert Rose

Nasheetah means “chic” or “elegant,” an obvious choice for this very special girl! A spectacular addition to Thee Desert Rose Legacy.

This spring Thee Desert Rose produced yet another stunning filly! This 2016 grey beauty is by A Illuminatus who is EBC nominated and nominated  for US Nationals and Egyptian Event Futurities.

Thee Desert Rose has passed on her long, graceful legs and large dark eyes to her progeny. This is no surprise when you consider her prepotent tail female line. She traces to Hanan* in tail female line which is extremely rare and well respected in both the US and abroad. Nothing makes us more proud than seeing Thee Desert Rose Legacy grow and succeed!

Her sire Alixir, by The Elixir, is a highly successful and well promoted sire. He combines some of the rarest and most sought-after traits today’s selective breeders require. His get are recognized for their exceptional athletic ability and strong very correct conformation.

A review of her pedigree reveals too many champions to list. She is a “class A” straight Egyptian mare with a diverse and impeccable pedigree. Her progeny will compliment any breeding program and/or show string.
