Rafeef

Leafy Bullet Rafeef Leafy Bullet
GSB #693

Color: Chestnut
Sex: Stallion
Foaled: 1917

Sire: Nasik (Rijm x Narghileh by Mesaoud)

Dam: Riyala (Astraled x Ridaa by Merzuk)

Breeder: Crabbet Arabian Stud
Sussex, England

Sire of 12 registered purebred Arabian foals (7 colts and 5 fillies) including his son *Mirzam (see Masyra) and his two daughters Risslina and *Rasafa who are all of significance mid-pedigree in Arieana's Arabians.

From our Arieana Notebook: Rafeef is highly regarded and uniquely appreciated in the pedigrees of Arieana Arabians for his carrying forth not only his sire *Nasik's brilliant, elegant style and way of going, but for bringing us two lines each in his own pedigree of the incomparables Mesaoud and *Rose of Sharon, thusly intensifying for us the influence of these two greats from out of the past on into our own modern-day CMK Arabian Horse preservation breeding practices.

Lady Wentworth wrote these glowing words about Rafeef: "Good head, long neck, fine action, beautiful galloping stride. Immense eyes and extra long mane and tail. Good shoulder and legs. A flashing beauty of golden buttercup brilliance. Brilliantly carried head and tail. Wanted by everyone." (A Century of Crabbet Breeding. Crabbet Organisation. 2002. p 25.)

Rafeef was also held in high esteem by Mr. W.K. Kellogg for his contribution as a sire in the pedigrees of *Rissletta and *Rasafa, and today at Arieana Arabians we still see Rafeef's remarkable influence in the brilliant, rising star and future herd sire Haat Pursuit with his double Haat Shaat pedigree.

*Rasafa

Leafy Bullet *Rasafa Leafy Bullet
AHR #602

Color: Chestnut
Sex: Mare
Foaled: January 1, 1926

Sire: Rafeef (Nasik x Riyala by Astraled)

Dam: *Rasima (Daoud x Rose of Hind by Rejeb)

Breeder: Crabbet Arabian Stud
Sussex, England

Dam of 4 registered purebred Arabian foals (1 colt and 3 fillies) including her daughter Antafa (see Nawari) who is of significance mid-pedigree in Arieana's Arabians.

Line Break

From our Arieana Notebook: *Rasafa was only a suckling foal when she was imported on January 10, 1926 by W.K. Kellogg along with her dam *Rasima. Although considered small at maturity, *Rasafa was an enjoyable mare under saddle. Shown in the Kellogg Ranch's Sunday Shows under English tack by a young girl (photo above), *Rasafa gave a pleasing performance with plenty of animation and a good trot. This same agreeable disposition comes down to us today at Arieana Arabians through her daughter Antafa by Antez (see Nawari).

Imported from England to the United States in 1926 with her daughter *Rasafa at side.
