Once again we have lost a loyal, long-time member.

Dr. Ferdinand Denzinger died suddenly and unexpectedly at the end of January. The veterinarian specialised on horses and was appreciated for his competence, gave lectures and helped horses and their owners at home and abroad. In particular, he had specialised in the treatment of difficult cases using bioresonance therapy.

Together with his partner Gabriele Schuster he bred very successfully Asil Arabians of pure Egyptian bloodlines at the Nedschd Arab Stud in Schönsee since 2002. They placed great value on a good topline, strong legs and an exemplary interior. Riding has always been a part of the stud's activities, besides showing, and successes of the offspring at shows and in endurance sport give evidence of their successful concept.

Ferdinand Denzinger's passion for the Arabian horse awakened decades ago when he got a thoroughbred Arabian horse from HuL Marbach, but when he accidentally met his first Asil-Egyptian in the 1990s, he was thrilled.

We fondly remember the great hospitality of the Denzinger and Schuster families on the occasion of the annual general meeting of the Asil Club 2016 at the stud farm in Schönsee. Everybody pitched in and took care of us in the most cordial way.

We knew Ferdinand Denzinger as a caring, warm-hearted, open person. We will miss him very much. We wish his family much strength in this difficult time.
