Nils´sire Almas, feathered red with black mask, is from Iran, where the Tamps have been breeding and hunting with their own line of salukis for decades – as Sir Terence Clark in his article relates. Feathered grizzle dam Jadhaba is bred by the Heathers while they still lived in Oman. Brother Basim has sired a litter in the USA.
The first qualifing time ( 480m under 34 sec.) for the title Finnish Racing champion 2 year old Nils ran at his very first competition, and the last needed at the age of 5.
