Here is her new owner's story:
I bought a mare called Malika. She was originally from Cascade Gold Akhal-Teke's. She is 93% Akhal-Teke from Astrachan and Mirija. I guess her mom had 1/8 other breed in her. She then went to Idaho and made it out to the Big Island in Hawaii where I live. Her owner moved back to Idaho and didn't take her. I actually found her on craigslist! We made a connection the 2nd time I went to see her and we are really bonding. She is a real sweetheart, loves people and attention. She is a bay and has that beautiful metallic sheen and smooth gaits. This is my 1st experience with this breed. I had never actually seen one in person before! I am learning tons. She is so different from my little rodeo cutter horse!
