Israeli breeders
horsing around

BY BILL CLARK

Beer Sheva — Israeli horse
breeders have recently launched a
new program to recreate the Bi-
blical horse strain originally es-
tablished by King Solomon.
The effort is being coordinated
at Ben-Gurion's Cashvan Center
for Animal Health and Improve-
ment, under the direction of Prof.
Daniel Cohen.
Many scholars believe that the
modern Arab horse is descended
from the horse strain developed
by King Solomon's breeders 3,000
years ago. In ancient times, the
horses were primarily raised for
the military where they either
pulled chariots or carried cavalry.
Modern Israeli breeders have
decided to use today's pure-bred
Arab horse stock in their quest for
the Biblical equine. From these
animals they are trying to select
the qualities considered most
appropriate for a distinctive Is-
raeli horse.
"We intend to develop a
uniquely Israeli strain, Prof.
Cohen explaned, noting that the
Beer Sheva-based horses are
being bred for the same qualities
of general appearance and
stamina that Solomon found ap-
pealing.
Prof. Cohen explained that the
key to the Israeli breeding pro-
gram is using the highest quality
horses in the best conditions.
They are receiving the most pro-
fessional handling available and
are quartered in the most appro-
priate climate and terrain. Addi-
tionally, they are inspected daily
by veterinarians using the
facilities of the most modern vet-
erinary hospital in Israel. The
horses are also supplied with the
finest feeds and hays and are
disciplined with a rigorous regi-
men of exercise and training.
The effort to breed a fine Israeli
Arab horse will take about 20
years, Prof. Cohen predicts, but
when it is successfully completed,
Israel will have a horse which will
stand unmatched in the world.
The Israeli horse will carry with it
a mystique which will charm
horse lovers around the world
with a combination of pedigreed
elegance and desert ruggedness.
Cohen believes that there will
be a tremendous international
interest in the horse, and that a
subsequent new horse industry
will benefit Israel. Presently, he
said, a prime Arab breeding stall-
ion can be valued at about $1 mil-
lion; however, he estimates op-
timistically, fine horses from the
distinctive King Solomon line
could fetch more.
But as every horse lover knows,
raising equines is more than eco-
nomics. There is a devotion be-
tween man and horse which isn't
often seen between people and
other animals. In Israel, there is a
long tradition of horse associa-
tions dating back to the time of
King Solomon and before.
More recently, the fabled rela-
tionships between the rural
watchmen, who protected Jewish
settlements before the creation of
modern Israel in 1948, and their
horses, were as staunch as those
felt by Texas cowboys. Even to-
day, there's hardly a kibbutz or
settlement in Israel that doesn't
