From our Arieana Notebook: At Arieana Arabians we honor Rosa Rugosa as the only daughter of the dynastic *Rose of Sharon to be bred and foaled in the United States. Rosa Rugosa herself was the dam of 4 registered purebred Arabian foals (2 colts and 2 fillies) for which we at Arieana Arabians most appreciate the lasting mid-pedigree influence of her son Sidi. Rosa Rugosa is noted as standing at 15 Hands with head showing great character, as having outstanding withers with good shoulders and great depth through the heart, and considered overall as a very fine and stylish horse.

Rosa Rugosa was sold as a yearling by her breeder Spencer Borden to F. Lathrop Ames of Massachusetts. Soon thereafter Ames lost interest in his purebred Arabians and dispersed his herd, and by 1913 Rosa Rugosa was owned by Herbert J. Brown of Maine and for him had her first two foals. By 1916 Rosa Rugosa had passed into the hands of his brother W.R. Brown of the famous Maynesboro Stud in Berlin, New Hampshire, and it was there that Rosa Rugosa had her last two foals, the very last of those being Sidi ~ a stallion of significance in the pedigrees of Arieana's Arabians through his son Rehal and his daughter Raad.

Just as an aside, there was a mistake in the older studbooks of the Arabian Horse Registry indicating that Rosa Rugosa was imported from Crabbet Stud. This is an error and should be corrected if you have one of those older versions as Rosa Rugosa was bred, foaled, and lived her entire life in the United States.
