There is absolutely nothing wrong with Sheikh Ahmed. How many times do I have to tell you people? He is perfect in everyway.

As far as dishdashas (sp?), they can very well make the man. I am a big fan of the colored ones S. Hamdan and Rashid bin Mo wear. They fill them out very nicely if I do say so myself. I LOVE the deep blue one.

For the ghutra is there any significance between the red checkered one and the white one? I've seen Hamdan in both.
I think the red checkered one is thicker and is mostly used in winter. White is the summer colour.

Pallas athina: ok ok. He is absolutely perfect. I will post the pic of your beloved tomorrow.

Yes, can you see it? I kept getting error messages and I still see the old pic.

Yes, but I like the black-and-white one better. This one looks like a painting. Or is it?

Thank you Layla.

Incidentally, there was an article in the New York Times online about the sire of Smarty Jones. He is owned by???? I&#39;ll give you three guesses.

SC: you&#39;ve got me reading about horses and horse racing now. I&#39;m even thinking of taking riding lessons. And no, the ultimate goal is not so that I can ride in endurance races.

Hmmmmmmm... can we have some choices?

Well, I&#39;ll take a shot in the dark: SA?


La la: no, it&#39;s not a painting but became like this when I had to decrease the resolution etc. I like the B/W more too but thought it was time I got a makeover.

i just wrote this whole reply and the board crashed...i&#39;m going to kick some alexandria booty next time she shows up........

Okay, back to real business. Smarty Jones is a close to the TC that a certain gold tasseled dishdasha wearing sheikh is going to get. I have started a thread on Thoroughbred Times regarding just this matter.

If any of you are in Toronto, this weekend is Belmont. I&#39;m more than happy to introduce my favorite girls to the glory, art and passion of racing.

PA: You should learn to ride. The oggling alone is worth the sore thighs. Oh my and once you start to check out hottie Argy polo players the whole world expands exponentially with cute guys. There is a family of polo players that are renowned internationally for being hot. And one of them was my first instructor. What infinately great luck.

But hey, the pics are great. La la, check out Saud Al-Faisal there. It was during his peak years.
What pics, Layla? There are no pictures in that book, not in my book (in "Oil Sheikhs")&#33;

No gold star for you, Layla. :( Though SA is my favorite, I don&#39;t know that he is into breeding.

La La, you can have half a gold star because Mo is mentioned, but no he isn&#39;t the owner either.

Hint: It is one of Mo&#39;s brothers. Since he only has 3, I think I have helped enough.

From NYTimes:

"Among the wary was the owner of Gainsborough Farm, Sheik Maktoum bin Rashid al-Maktoum, who is the ruler of Dubai and the architect of the 1,950-acre bluegrass quilt here that celebrates luxury and care for horses. His brother, Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, has also yet to mate his best mares to Elusive Quality, even though he owns him."

Shk Mak-owns farm
Shk Mo-owns horse
Shk Ahmed-owns PA&#39;s heart

Danke Schön, Pallas Athina!

By the way, Houri, I presumed you were from Saudi Arabia as you 'fetish' some of their princes Nothing wrong with that. Everyone knows about my obsession with the UAE Sheikhs (but I'm willing to settle for any S-h-e-i-k-h).

Oh, Kuwait. Is the ruling family called the Al-Sabahs in Kuwait? Anyone worth fancying? :woot:

Maybe we shoud dedicate a thread to our prominent Sheikhas, say wot? I&#39;m dying to know more about all these Sheikhas and I believe I read somewhere that Sheikh Hazza&#39;s *attention everyone* wife, named Mosa, wrote a book about Baba Zayed (her father-in-law) and his achievements.
