Legend says that the Abbayah strain takes its name from the story of a desert war mare who lived centuries ago. When fleeing the enemy, her rider attempted to lighten his mare’s load by discarding his cloak, or abbaya, but the mare carried her tail so high and proudly that the cloak was held by her tail all the way back to the rider’s encampment.
