Fae is fortunate to carry 3 lines to Serafix, a wonderful representation of Crabbet breeding. I find it very interesting to research different bloodlines and how they influenced the Arabian breed. Here are some historical photos and information regarding this exceptional horse.

*Serafix - Crabbet purebred Arabian stallion

These photos are subject to Section 107 of the Fair Use Act:









And one of his Dam, Serafina, who Solei reminds me very much of:

He has a very short, but very refined neck. He's absolutely gorgeous.

Just goes to show how Arabian breeding has changed in the US and what is considered valuable. It certainly can be helpful for people to understand what Crabbet breeding is as opposed to what MR halter promotes today. I personally prefer a more European type of Arabian. What is in MR these days is a bit freaky to me..

Little Miss Fae continues to impress me with a beautifully sculpted face, enlarging jowls, widening jib, (which I didn't think was possible), outstanding topline, straight, long legs, killer hip, amazing temperament, and she is HUGE!! She towers above a colt born at the same time. Refined, yet muscular, she is living up to my expectations of this cross nicely. My little girl is growing up!!

You're welcome! King don't know what color he wants to be right now. On top he's almost white, on bottom he's real dark yellow lol. I can't wait to see what color he sheds out to be in the spring.
