Khemosabi bred Arabians
7 Attachment(s)
I know some people have to have them, and I'd love to hear information on them. I'd also like to see if there is any information on Khemosabi that I'm missing. What is the breeding of him? What did his foals excel in?

I've found a few things, but I would love to know more as I just found out that my little Arab mare is a granddaughter of him. Thanks :-)

I remember having a big Khemosabi poster on my wall as a teen. Thought he was the perfect horse.

5 years ago, and a total act of God, I was blessed with my Khemo ggdaughter. She's a ggdaughter, but she's my "Khemo baby" just the same.

There's all kinds of information on Khemosabi if you look.

He was an extremely influential sire, and crossing his line with the Polish bloodlines made for some very nice horses. Bask/Khemo crosses were popular for a very long time, and some people are still breeding them.

What do you mean, 'what is the breeding on him'? Look up his pedigree, and go from there. He's considered an American bred Arabian, out of the mare Jurneeka and sired by Amerigo.

Ok, I own paints, not Arabs, but when I hear the name "Khemosabi" or see his picture, I get goosebumps. Years ago I read an article about him in Horse & Rider magazine. He was conceived in a parking lot at night after a big Arab show in Canada. The stud & mare owners had just that one opportunity to get the 2 horses together. They turned the headlights on the horses in the parking lot and the magic happened! How cool is that??? Oh yes, mark my words, I will own a Khemosabi bred Arab and show him in Scottsdale, my goal after I retire. Good enough reason for a Canadian to pick Arizona for a place to retire, huh?

Khemo horses are known for their western and working cow abilities. They're easy to train as long as you're fair and as long as you give them a chance to absorb what they've learned, they won't tolerate being cowboyed or pushed beyond their capabilities but will give you the WORLD if you just ask. Beautiful, big eyed, sweet, in your tent personality, and realllllllly good work ethics. What more can you ask for?

Here's a link to his pedigree on All Breed.

I wasn't sure what his breeding would be considered as I've never really been into Arabs until last year when I got this mare. I'm tryng to learn all the different breeding lines and all that. I have been doing some research now that I know what to look up. Thank you all :)

I have a Khemosabi daughter out of a sasaki line mare waiting in Florida. Just need my bank to clear before I can send my hold deposit for her.

Khemo/Bask cross here:-), far back and only Khemo once, but a lot of "V's" too

Absitvita, she is beautiful and very typical.

In fact, just recently there was a Khemo- daughter up for grabs, free, underweight and lame, but still a beautiful horse. Unfortunately somebody beat me....

Curiousity and wanting other breeders' opinion and advice, surely some of you [if not most] have checked back in your horses ancestry to find a horse named Raffles in the line. As more experienced breeders probably know, he was sired by Skowronek out of Rifala by Skowronek. What are your experiences with breeding your horses from that line? Have you had any problems with birth or genetic issues? Please spill your guts, I'm all ears!:?:
