    Khemosabi was a bay Arabian stallion born in 1967. “Khemo” was a US National Champion Halter stallion (1973), a US and Canadian National Champion in Western Pleasure (1976), as well as a Canadian National Champion Halter stallion (1976); he was also awarded the highest honor from the Arabian Horse Association: Legion of Masters. Khemo died in 2001 at the age of thirty-four.
    Khemosabi was bred by Dr. Bert and Ruth Husband, and born in the Husband’s backyard in Whittier, CA. Khemo was sired by the stallion Amerigo and out of the mare Jurneeka. His pedigree traces to one of the first horses Mr. Kellogg purchased for his breeding program, Raseyn. Raseyn was foaled in 1923 and bred by Lady Wentworth of the Crabbet Arabian Stud. He was imported into the United States by W.K. Kellogg in 1926.
    B. Paul Husband is an equine and tax attorney, and son of Dr. Bert and Ruth Husband, the breeders of Khemosabi. When Khemo was still rather young, Paul wrote a cartoon series in which Khemo wears a Lone Ranger mask and has a redheaded companion who was based on Paul’s mother, Ruth.
