We think Khaberet PGA is a lovely representation of what an Arabian stallion should be, but it is not only his correct build which allows him to complete his performance career easily, but his great mind that brings it all together. His kindness does not go unnoticed. He’s everyone’s friend.
While Archie was with Keith Krichke at the Scottsdale Arabian Show in February, 2011, after his class, I went into his stall and put my arms around his neck as he was looking out the rear window. Khaberet wrapped his neck and head around my back as he typically would do. The presentation had just concluded and many of the people attending Krichke’s afternoon presentation saw me in the stall with Khaberet. They walked into his stall and began touching him, petting him, standing in the stall, and just watching him. My immediate thought was that Keith would be worried with the all the commotion. He later told me he walked by several times and the stall was continually packed with people, and at that moment he thought that it was good for people to see Khaberet that way. Truly enjoying the company of others and proving his gentle and accommodating nature. Khaberet is a joy to be around and so kind. Keith and Maureen were amazing with Khaberet PGA and we will be forever indebted to them for the wonderful job they did training and promoting him. So many people who saw Khaberet PGA at Scottsdale have, through word of mouth, spread the news about his temperament, beauty and athletic build. Several new breedings have come as a result of the experiences of others and we are thrilled with the response and honored to have met those who appreciate and admire Khaberet as much as we do!
Khaberet PGA is now in the capable hands of Dave and Liz Bentley which has already proven to be an unstoppable team with their 2012 historic National Championship. On to a star studded 2013!
