I was browsing and came across this photo of Raffles from the Pinterest site. Attributions there can be off radically. Is this Raffles? Has this photo been seen before?

Sheila R. Cone to Crabbet, CMK, Davenport, and American Foundation Arabian Horses

Carol Woodbridge Mulder is an exceptional lady who has known and ridden many of the truly great icons of the breed. A gifted eques...trian, her first 28 years were spent in close association with the old W.K. Kellogg Arabian Ranch at Pomona, California. Amongst the many near-legendary horses that she personally knew were *Raseyn, *Raffles, Antez, Alla Amarward, Abu Farwa and *Witez II to name only a few.

Unlike several present day, self-proclaimed “breed authorities” who attempt to bolster their often dubious prestige by claiming some sort of intimate friendship or association with either H.H. Reese or Gladys Brown Edwards―Carol Woodbridge Mulder not only worked closely with the two foremost breed experts of that era, but owned several Arabian horses in partnership with them.

In 1959, at the age of 19, Carol wrote her first magazine article and throughout the ensuing decades published hundreds more enlightening accounts in nearly every Arabian horse magazine that one could name. Her contributions to the heritage and history of the Arabian horse have been tremendous and have greatly benefitted thousands of dedicated students of the breed.

She is the author of a splendid series of three large and exhaustively detailed books titled “Imported Foundation Stock of North American Arabian Horses.” Each of her books contain an abundance of unique information, statistics and extremely rare photographs of many of the most influential stallions and mares that are not found in any other source. Her detailed and precise documentation on many of the early breeders such as Spencer Borden, Homer Davenport and Alexander Keene Richards (among many others), is likewise exceptional.

In my opinion (and I am not alone), the accuracy of Carol Woodbridge Mulder's impeccably detailed genealogical data and flawless historic research is far superior to that of ANY other individual that has EVER written about the Arabian horse!

A friend of mine found these photos of Cass Ole. I gasped, then teared up. He was so, so beautiful and captivating. He will always be "the horse" in my heart.

Two beautiful Donoghue bred mares...full sisters.

Left is La Bahia, right is Rohanna. Both produced a son each that became great ambassadors for the breed, and ...much loved and popular stallions among Arabian admirers; Cass Ole and Pulque. (A photo of each son is in the comments).
