This film, produced by Dallas-based Bill Stokes Associates for Ansata Arabian Stud, promotes the Ansata farm and bloodline. Using historical images of Egypt and views of the stallions, mares, and foals at the farm, the film traces the history and lore of this ancient strain of Arabian horse, from its origin with the Bedouin tribes to present day. Ansata Arabian Stud was located in Lufkin, Texas from 1959 until 1981 when it moved to its current location in Mena, Arkansas.

Formed in 1965, Bill Stokes Associates – later to be known as The Stokes Group - was a Dallas based production company that made industry and promotional films for a range of clients spanning from Mary Kay Cosmetics to the United States Navy. In 1966, Bill Stokes Associates, provided sound stage and production services for the film "Bonnie and Clyde." Bill Stokes has been honored by the Dallas Producers Association with a Film Pioneer Award.
