CMK Arabians, less common sire lines

 
H.C. Mingst

Raffon

While hardly a 'rare' sire line (to Skowronek), his own direct male descendants are getting pretty scarce. His daughters, though, produced such well-represented sires as Fame VF and Huckleberry Bey.

Photo taken by H. C. Mingst (my father) during a legion of merit presentation for Raffon's son, Seyn Raffon. Raffon was in his twenties or so at this time.

    I have a lovely 1987 Raffon granddaughter. Her sire is Ibn Raffon++ and her dam is a Ga Raffon daughter. My mare's name is Raffon Sulene, a typey, correct and sweet tempered bay. She has the Raffon look and passes it on to her gorgeous foals.

    Due to my personal life and health challenges, I cannot continue breeding her anymore. She is in excellent health, full of energy and really should be producing more wonderful foals. I hate to let such a treasure go, but with her lineage, I feel I am doing the Arabian world a disservice to keep her for myself just because I love to look at her.

    I will let my adorable mare go to a good home where she will be carefully bred and kept on good pasture with other mares.

    If interested, email me and I will send a photo.

    I have a great-grandson of Raffon, his name is Juans Mirlo AHR339469 and he's so beautiful, now I know where he gets his looks from.

    If anyone is interested my Raffon grandson sired by Rasmatas is for sale. He is EXACTLY like his sire and will make an awesome herd sire.

    Check out this page Carol and look at the colt. This Raffon son is really nice, even at 29. He is still virile too! The colt has the same markings as grandpa! What a cutie!
