This horse in many ways im­proves upon his grand­sire Gu­las­tra, through short­en­ing the back, strength­en­ing the cou­pling, im­prov­ing the over­all body bal­ance, and in­creas­ing the size of the hindquar­ter. A cham­pion in both hal­ter and park com­pe­ti­tion, Abu Farwa was most im­pres­sive un­der sad­dle. His is still the most pro­lific Amer­i­can blood­line in terms of the num­ber of cham­pion sons who are them­selves sires of cham­pi­ons— and of many oth­ers owned by or­di­nary folks who are “merely” good-look­ing, good-minded, use­ful and ath­letic.
