On the night of 6 to 7 December 2000., Halsdon Arabians stud in the UK, is gone from us forever United Arab Lady Breed - Saw unforgettable. Her loss deeply touched all those who knew her, loved and admired. She was known not only as an ideal Arabian horse, winner of the show, the mother of champions and excellent broodmare, but also as the epitome of beauty and delicacy - a real fairytale arab,, ''.
Pilgrimages Arabian horse lovers from around the world visiting Janow Podlaski first sought saws. Her pictures adorn the rooms of young people, hanging next to posters of rock stars. Young people from distant countries such as Japan and New Zealand they spread their letters to the director. Andrew Krzyształowicz asking them about the saw.
This exceptional mare, born in Janow Podlaski Stud, a beautiful spring day, April 14, 1975, she was one of the great personalities, which, like the outstanding people appear once in a long time ...
Her unique personality, grace, presence and charisma invariably evoked in the audience a thrill. Called,, most admired Polish mare 'reign on show rings eighties - twice European Champion, World Champion and World Cup Champion. During the European Championships in Ostend received a standing ovation from the audience, enchanted her truly regal presence and beauty. I will never forget the tears in the eyes of the director.

Chainsaws memorable performance was the World Cup in Stockholm in 1990. When sailing,, '' in the air,, blew the audience to its knees '' and was Champion Mare. In 1992, at age 17, has established a kind of record by becoming the UK Champion Mare and won the title of Best in Show.
Chainsaws story is truly a fairytale. The very unique, she met along the way a whole range of special people. Circle interested in buying this wonderful mare is still growing and the Board of the State Studs and in Janow Podlaski Stud decided to make it available to other breeders. The saw has become a big star auction Polish Prestige in 1990, where as Lot 1 was purchased for US $ 215,000 by Paolo Gucci, the owner of the stud Millfield Stables. Apart from it, Paolo Gucci bought the Polish National Reserve Champion Filly of 1987 - Piquet and Polish National Champion Stallion 1988 - Pilot. At this time, along with Mr. Ignatius Yavorivskyi - director of Michałów Stud, stayed in the US and we have seen how late at night, big, luxurious koniowóz brought to Millfield Stables horses purchased in Poland. Still, closing his eyes, I see the saw, which is in complete darkness, illuminated only car headlights appears in the doorway koniowozu. Like Snow White, with big, shining like stars in the eyes, looked around, whinnied and dignity came to his new boxing.
It has not been long in Millfield Stables, but certainly remembered manageress stud - Mrs. Kay Daniels, who was aware that holds in her stable real treasure. Saw was lucky that in 1992, just before the bankruptcy of the US branch of Millfield Stables, was transferred to the UK. Sad to say, but we all remember that soon Paolo Gucci British stud shared the fate of the US. Just before the dramatic end of Millfield Stables saw was sent to stud Silverdale Arabians properties Wendy Carr, in order to cover the stallion Fawor - Junior World Champion and Polish Champion. Wendy Carr with difficulty and in a trembling voice recalls the moment when she saw 21-year-old circular saw on a muddy paddock. She was unrecognizable. Fortunately, it failed to stop at Silverdale almost a year. With extremely loving care saw again proudly lifted his head, and her eyes took on former splendor.
In 1997, he saw, along with other horses from the stables liquidated Millfield Stables was exposed for sale. Again smiled on her luck. Her new owner was Shirley Watts, who has long been felt for the saw great affection and with all your strength to save her and wanted to ensure a peaceful and dignified life. Shirley Watts - Halsdon Arabians STUD - has become a real Chainsaws asylum, where she found the perfect conditions, surrounded by people who respected her, admired and loved.
His rescuers paid off soon giving in 1999 and 2000 two beautiful fillies, after his own grandson - Pilot stallion, mare who like Piqueta found a home in Halsdon Arabians.
Having the privilege of visiting Halsdon Arabians summer of 1999, I will never forget the moment when after 12 years again I saw the saw. She stood in her royal,, '' box, looking at me with dignity like a silver ghost ... so beautiful and young, it took my breath away. Shirley Meanwhile, his soft voice whispered in her ear, words that were to remain only between the two ladies.
To understand the genetic potential of grandeur and Circular refer to its roots. It was a perfect blend of blood,, called the Polish golden cross '' - Egyptian Nazeer line by line Aswan and Polish Skowronek by Naseem, Negatiw and Bandos, supported priceless Polish female lines. Chainsaws father was born in Tersk son Aswan - Palas stallion that had a huge impact on the Polish breeding. Her mother was Perga, the daughter of a great mare Piewica, representing the old Polish female line Szamrajówka mare, born in 1810 in the famous stud of Prince Branickiego in Białocerkwi. The family made a major contribution to the Polish, especially Janów-bred horses giving excellent quality and a significant number of champions such as: Piruet, Piechur, Pepton, Penitent, Pesal, Ibn Bandos, Pepi, Penicylina, Pentoda and many others.

The saw was a mare that gave high quality offspring with each stallion, with which it was combined. Before being exported to the US gave in Poland five foals. To those who continue this family in the stud in Janow Podlaski include:
Pipi - Polish National Champion Filly of 1989, dam Pilot mare Pistacja - Polish National Reserve Champion Filly Mare in 1990 and Reserve Champion Filly Polish 1993 and 1994, and the mares Pilar - Polish National Junior Champion Filly from 1996-1997;
Pinia, the mother of Polish National Junior Champion 1999 - Pianosa;
Pilina, sold at auction in 2000 for $60,000 to one of the Polish breeders.
Probably the best saws daughter was Pianola - Polish Youth Champion Filly of 1983, but unfortunately this beautiful mare fell at the age of two years, due to severe cold, which contracted out the way to the Living Horse in Paris.
After leaving the Polish, and before coming to Halsdon Arabians saw probably three foals born, among them Poseidon - the son of the stallion Fawor known and brave horse racing. The quality of offspring left by the saw in Halsdon Arabians leads us to believe that the legacy of this great mare will proudly continue.
The saw will always remain in our memories with the hope that we will meet her again on the celestial meadows ...
