Book exhibition about the Turkmen alabai

The Central Scientific Library of the Academy of Sciences of Turkmenistan has organized a thematic exhibition of printed publications dedicated to the Turkmen Alabai. In the center of attention is the fundamental work of the Hero-Arkadag Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov “Turkmen Alabay”, which summarizes historical and archaeological materials, interesting facts and legends about this ancient breed of dog.

The attention of researchers and other visitors of the library is also attracted by Professor Ovez Gundogdyev’s book “Tazy and Alabay” – about two unique breeds of dogs that served as indispensable and faithful helpers of Turkmens in cattle breeding and hunting. Another excellent example of the breeding art of the Turkmens is the Akhal-Teke horse, which is mentioned in the article “Akhal-Teke and Alabai”, published in the international magazine “Turkmenistan”.

The exhibition presents many other interesting materials in Turkmen and Russian, published in different years in such magazines as Medeniýet, Miras, Diýar, Garagum, Turkmenistan sport and others. They are dedicated to the ancient origin of the Alabai, his fearless character and behavior, tell about the Alabai’s devotion to the family, his love for people, especially children, and help to the border guards in protecting the sacred borders of the Fatherland.
