From our Arieana Notebook: Narghileh, who like her dam Nefisa, was a highly productive mare with far-reaching influence in our breeding program at Arieana Arabians. Narghileh was the dam of 10 registered purebred Arabian foals (7 colts and 3 fillies) of which her two sons *Nasik and Nureddin II and her daughter *Narda II are all of major significance mid-pedigree in our foundation bloodstock. Narghileh was tall at 15.2 Hands and was described by Lady Anne Blunt as "very fine" with thin skin and silky hair which allowed the veining in her legs to show through. In 1918, at age 23, Narghileh was destroyed (shot) by Wilfrid S. Blunt, much to the dismay of his daughter Judith.
