Line Break

From our Arieana Notebook: Purchased in 1935 as a part of a group of seven Arabians from the Maynesboro Stud of W.R. Brown by W.K. Kellogg, Bazikh arrived in Pomona, California on Saturday, September 7th. Mr. Herbert H. Reese, in his book The Kellogg Arabians, described her with these words: "Bazikh was a mare of excellent riding type, with a head that in side view was very extreme, having an exceptionally prominent forehead (jibbah) and deeply dished profile... Her foals were exceptionally good as show horses for they, like her,  always had plenty of animation and fire." Carol W. Mulder described her as "...surely one of the best mares, anywhere in the world, during her time." Considered surplus by Cal Poly University, Bazikh was sold on March 15, 1950 to Mr. and Mrs. M.R. Rocle of Chula Vista, California. Her last home was with Alice Payne of Chino, California. Her date of death is recorded as July 11, 1952; age 25.

Of special note and interest to us at Arieana Arabians, Bazikh was full sister to Bazleyd who
was officially registered in the Supplemental Section of Volume I of The Register of the TWHBA, published in 1939 and therefore eligible as Foundation Breeding Stock.

From our Arieana Notebook: Bazrah, bred to some of the finest stallions of her era (*Abu Zeyd, Gulastra, Rahas, *Nasr, and Ferseyn) was the Dam of an amazing 20 registered purebred Arabian foals (10 colts and 10 fillies) including her daughter Bazikh and dazzling son Balastra (maternal grand sire of Saidi in the pedigree of Ashan Adar) who were both of significant and most positive influence mid-pedigree for the style and elegance of Arieana's purebred Arabian foundation bloodstock.

Bazrah become renown not only for the quantity, but also the quality of her foals. Though not in our pedigrees but of special interest to us at Arieana Arabians was her impressive and naturally-gaited son Bazleyd. This stallion, with his rapid, natural amble which resembled the basic running walk gait of the Tennessee Walking Horse, proved his merit with high placements in horse shows and thereby earned his listing as Foundation Breeding Stock in the Supplemental Section of Volume I of The Register of the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders Association published in 1939.

In addition to her fame as an outstanding broodmatron, Bazrah was also widely regarded for her own excellent conformation and kindly disposition ~ qualities she certainly passed on to her foals. General J.M. Dickinson in his 1934 Catalogue wrote of her "...a mare of beautiful smoothness and fullness of body and small, tapering, high caste head." (p. 38).

When W.R. Brown dispersed his Maynesboro Stud in 1935, Bazrah went first to W. R. Hearst of San Simeon, California, and then on to Roy L. Jackson of Orange, California. Bazrah died at age 29, on the same day as did Man O' War, the great Thoroughbred race horse, in November, 1948.

Color: Bay
Sex: Mare
Foaled: February 26, 1904

Sire: Seyal (Mesaoud x Sobha by Wazir)

Dam: Bereyda (Ahmar x Bozra by Pharaoh)

Breeder: Crabbet Arabian Stud. Sussex, England

Imported by: Spencer Borden. Interlachen Stud. Fall River, Massachusetts. 1908

Dam of 7 registered purebred Arabian foals (4 colts and 3 fillies) for which we at Arieana Arabians most appreciate her mid-pedigree influence in our foundation bloodstock through her granddaughter Bazrah.

From our Arieana Notebook: *Butheyna was purchased as a four-year-old in 1908 by Spencer Borden after lengthy negotiations with Wilfrid S. Blunt and Lady Anne Blunt had failed for him over her full sister Belkis. Borden was eventually delighted with *Butheyna and wrote to Lady Anne Blunt that "...*Butheyna is the best mare you ever sent me." It was noted by Carol Mulder that *Butheyna was a mare who carried herself with verve and style, emanating a certain glow which made her attractive despite her conformational imperfections. *Butheyna was sold to W.R. Brown on May 9, 1918 and she died two years later at age 16, cause of death unknown. We at Arieana Arabians find her rare and very positive influence mid-pedigree in our foundation bloodstock through her daughter Bathsheba and her only daughter Bazrah.
