From our Arieana Notebook: *Nessa, a mare of merit, was imported to the United States as a weanling in October, 1905 by Spencer Borden, Fall River, Massachusetts. At that time Borden was seeking to obtain more of the strain of Kehilan Ras-A-l Fadawi which he greatly admired. In late 1916 or early 1917, *Nessa was sold to W.R. Brown of Berlin, New Hampshire, and for Brown's Maynesboro Stud  produced Tahdik, a mare of influence mid-pedigree in Arieana's Arabians through the magnificent stallion Tamarlane. *Nessa was then sold again in 1921 to her last owner of record D. Bryant Turner, Colorado Springs, Colorado where she produced for him her last foal of record  ~ an Anglo-Arab colt named Denessa.

For further reading on *Nessa and her life and that of her foals, we recommend Carol June Woodbridge Mulder's Imported Foundation Stock of North American Horses, Volume 2 (Revised Edition). Borden Publishing Company, Los Angeles, CA. 1993. pp. 86-90.

From our Arieana Notebook: *Nuri Pasha, whose beauty was in his character and performance, was the favorite horse of Albert W. Harris, the fourth president of the Arabian Horse Club and one of the earliest breeders of Arabian Horses here in the United States.

Prior to his importation by Mr. Harris in 1923, *Nuri Pasha was an outstanding winner in colt classes in England winning 1st Place and Champion in the Colt Classes at the 1921 and 1922 London Shows and 2nd Place in the Stallion Class at the 1923 Royal Agricultural Show, Newcastle. He was not shown here in the United States after his importation.

With the exception of one breeding season on loan to Major Henry Leonard of Colorado Springs, Colorado, *Nuri Pasha spent the remaining days and years of his life with Harris at his Kemah Farm, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. *Nuri Pasha died August 30, 1950, at age 30.
