I live very close to Twin Creek farms, and have seen Presumido Feisul in person as well as on video. He is a gentle stallion, and I found him to be overall pleasing to look at. He has a wonderful back, long hip, good arch to the neck, and his legs I would rate as good (but not perfect). The only faults that I would nick pick at is that he is not very dry in the head, doesn't have tremendous hock action or stretch, and doesn't have the presence that I would like to see in a stallion. His offspring are very nice, though, and I am waiting to see more of them before I decide to breed to him myself. He has thrown 1 black, 2 greys, two bays, and a chesnut. You can see more of him and his offspring on Twin Creek Farm's website at: http://arabiansites.com/twincreekfarms/pf/pfstallion.htm
. As far as pedigree goes, his dam contains *EL MAREEKH, SHAARAWI, and TUHOTMOS. All of whom are very famous and good sires. The main dam line has been known for throwing legs that are not of the best quality, so I would be careful when breeding any mare to Presumido Feisul who is not sound in the legs herself. Feisul's grandsire Rahima is out of the famous Imperial Imdal and the gorgeous mare APPLE HILL AGIBA (who is a FULL sibling to Apple Hill El Nisr I think). Rahima is the full brother to VA Lalique, a true 16 hand mare who won the Region 11 championship unanimously a few years ago and the Boggs were heard to say "Where did they get that Bey Shah daughter?lol! I will post a very old picture of Rahima for all to see. By the way, here is the story of Rahima told by his owner Pete Hiatt:
"Rahima had a tough beginning. He was his mother's first foal and she did not accept him. He was Vallee Arabians first Straight Egyptian foal out of their foundation SE mare, Apple Hill Agiba (Imperial Imdal x Apple Hill Agiba). They gave him goat milk and formula and he collicked and had collick surgery his first day of life. He got an e-coli infection from the surgery and it eventually went into the bone. It would seem to be under control until the bone grew and reinfected him. 2 1/2 years at the New Boltin Center in Pa with much of that time in intensive care. Three times his death rattles were heard and they went into his stall for the killer shot only to have him rise as if to say "Not yet!" They had an IV in him for months. They devised a way to keep it in him for up to six weeks at a time. I cannot even find a vein on his left side. When he was finally cured ($100,000. later), he could not be shown in halter as the ecoli had glassed over one eye. He was put with a "performance trainer" who unbeknownst to the Vallees, believed that the best way to train a horse was to beat it every day. Six weeks later, the Vallees found out. Paul Zigo never could break Rahima's will, but he did find the only way to have him lose his trust of humans. It has been many years to gain that trust back. The video of his get is extremely impressive. He has the best neck of any Imdal son."
