Leafy Bullet Rijm Leafy Bullet
GSB #393

Color: Chestnut
Sex: Stallion
Foaled: 1901

Sire: Mahruss II (Mahruss I x Bint Nura II by Aziz II) 

Dam: *Rose of Sharon (Hadban x Rodania)

Breeder: Crabbet Arabian Stud.
Sussex, England

Sire of 35 registered purebred Arabian foals (19 colts and 16 fillies) in England and Spain, of which his sons *Nasik and Nureddin II and his daughters *Noam and *Rijma are of major significance and influence mid-pedigree in Arieana's Arabians. Rijm is also sire of the gallant gelding *Crabbet (full brother to *Noam) and both renown for their feats of endurance.

From our Arieana Notebook: Rijm, translated from the Arabic, means "cairn of stones". Used extensively as a sire at Crabbet before his exportation to Spain in 1910, Rijm was unusually tall for an Arabian, standing 15.3 HH. Rijm's influence as a sire extends throughout many parts of the world, and he must be considered one of the great historic stallions of the breed. Perhaps Lady Anne Blunt herself summarized this stallion best when she wrote in her Journal: "Rijm has come [to Crabbet from Newbuildings]. The horse is splendid and I am only too happy to have got him. He really is magnificent." Exported to Spain in 1915 when he was 14 years old.

Breeder: Crabbet Arabian Stud.

Double Registered with The Thoroughbred Jockey Club as No. 2171 in their American Stud Book.

From our Arieana Notebook: *Rijma was part of a group of 17 Arabians imported in 1918 from the Crabbet Stud of Wilfrid Blunt by W.R. Brown for his Maynesboro Stud, Berlin, New Hampshire. *Rijma has been described by Carol Mulder as "...beautiful and typy with marked Arabian style and character." Although she was very thin from the near starvation conditions caused by the feed shortages in England during World War I, *Rijma did arrive safely at Maynesboro and was already in foal to Wilfrid Blunt's stallion Ibn Yashmak; the foal colt *Rizvan was born the following Spring on March 27, 1919. Life and conditions were much better for *Rijma with Mr. Brown and she thrived at Maynesboro producing for him five more foals, of which her son Ribal by *Berk and daughter Raad are also of importance to us at Arieana Arabians ~ all for the superb qualities they passed on down to their foals through their succeeding generations. *Rijma's last owner of record was P.H. McManus of Dover, New Hampshire; date of sale: April 6, 1931 when *Rijma was almost 20 years old. *Rijma was reported as dead in the 1937 Arabian Horse Registry's Stud Book.
