Tammens Kismet

Born 2/22/1996 Sweepstakes Nominated SCID,CA,LFS Clear 

Bred By Patrick Swazye and was Tom McNairs last stallion. We obtained Tammens Kismet when he was 20 in 2016 from Tom McNair's Widow in Texas. We had never seen him in person and did not know if he was still fertile.  He made the trek to Maine  during October.  He had to learn how to grow hair. We obtained some mares for him and he proved to be very potent even settling a mare as old as 23. Kismet has had 12 foals for us and stamped all consistently with mares of various pedigree.  His last two foals were born spring 2024 and will likely be his last as he is 28 and is showing his age now.  His son Kismets Badr will carry on his sireline and had his first foal in 2024.  Our plan is to use Royal Faaiq on Kismets daughters.  Royal Kismets Magnus was our first trial run and he is gorgeous.  


TAMMENS KISMET The aptly named TAMMENS KISMET is the last breeding son of his wonderful sire, Patrick Swayze's TAMMEN. "Kismet" is a Turkish word that means fortune or fate, and TAMMENS KISMET's heritage is made more special because he is linebred to TAMMEN's dam TALGANA, who is also his dam's second dam. The Bedouin believed that the dam line was the most important part of the heritage of an Arabian, and TAMMENS KISMET's pedigree was carefully planned. The remarkable TAMMEN, was a regional winner in halter, English pleasure and country pleasure and a Scottsdale Champion Stallion ATH. 38 of his get are champions. He sired National winners in halter and performance including U.S. Top Ten Stallion AOTH MAGIC MIRROR, Canadian Top Ten Mare AOTH JEST LIKE MAGIC, U.S. Top Ten Mare AOTH LORELEI LADY (also a regional winner producer), and four times Top Ten Half-Arabian Country Pleasure TAMMENS FLARE+. TAMMEN get are beautiful athletes who competed as successfully under saddle as they do in halter. His regional winners include regional champions in hunt pleasure and working cow horse and regional western pleasure winners. TAMMEN was ranked as a 2002 and 2005 Egyptian Event Leading Halter and Performance sire and as a Leading Performance Sire in 2004 and 2006. TAMMEN's most important contribution has been the successful breeding careers of his get, who have produced multiple National Champions in halter in North America and the Middle East, multiple National Champions in working cow horse and National winners in sport horse in hand.
