Sired by Aaraf (*Raffles x Aarah)
Out of Aadah (Aabab x Aabella)
1954 Chestnut Arabian
Bred by Blanche M. Tormohlen of Ben Hur, Portland, IN
Aadraf was a historical stallion in the Arabian horse lineage, sired by Aaraf, a notable stallion himself, being the progeny of *Raffles and Aarah. Aadraf's dam, Aadah, also comes from a distinguished line, being the offspring of Aabab and Aabella.
Born in 1954, Aadraf was bred by Blanche M. Tormohlen, a recognized figure in the Arabian horse community, based in Portland, Indiana.
As a chestnut Arabian stallion, Aadraf carried the distinctive traits of the breed, known for their elegance, spirit, and endurance. Arabian horses like Aadraf have been highly valued for their beauty and versatility, contributing significantly to the breeding of other light horse breeds.
Aadraf's lineage, marked by prominent ancestors such as *Raffles, Ghadaf, and Hanad, indicates a strong genetic heritage, making him a likely contributor to the qualities admired in modern Arabian horses.
His existence in the mid-20th century places him in an important period for developing and recognizing Arabian horses in America.
