Reference Dam
Priboj x Nomenklatura (Naseem)
Dam of Nemezida, Nefisa, Naturshitsa, Nega, Nariadnaia, and Namek

Excerpts from articles with reference to Neposeda:

Brown Edwards, Gladys. "Russian Re-Run". Arabian Horse World November 1983. Jay Shuler Co., Inc., Palo Alto, California. p. 80.

"Neposeda, another of those magical Russian chestnuts about which I can emote with great enthusiasm, came next. A bit more feminine - as to head - than *Monogramma, Neposeda looked beautiful no matter what her condition, and not every horse can do that. None of these mares had their poll trimmed at all, let alone clipped halfway down the neck to slim its appearance - they were already clean-cut, light in the throatlatch and, in most instances, long of neck. In fact, they were not trimmed at all, but had only been groomed after being brought in from pasture.

Neposeda was by the great Priboj, out of the Naseem mare Nomenklatura, so she too was of the Mammona family. The year Neposeda was Champion at Moscow, three of her daughters won the Certificate of First Degree: Nemezida (by Arax), Nesravnennaja (by *Salon) and Nega (by Aswan). Nemezida produced Elbrus, now the main scion of the Ofir line in Russia. The handsome chestnut stallion Namek is Nemezida's full brother, and he too is a Certificate winner. Another full sibling is Naturshitsa, dam of the champion *Namiet, by *Salon, and the beautiful *Najada (by Aswan). Also out of Neposeda is the typey *Nariadnaia (by Aswan), who, like *Parketnaia, brought a high price for a half-interest, $580,000, making her 'whole' value over a million dollars. *Nariadnaia is dam of the multi-champion *Nariadni, by Nabeg. *Napitok, Canadian National Champion and U.S. Top Ten in Park, is a Neposeda son by Pirit, a Derby winner. Pirit also won the S.M. Budenny race of 2,800 meters and the 'Elite' of 2,400 meters. The superior sire Nabeg is a half-brother to Neposeda, his sire being Arax."

"Neposeda is considered by many to be Nomenklatura's most important daughter, a distinction she acquired through the quality of her foals. Ten of her 12 foals produced from 1961 to 1975 were graded 'elite' in the Russian Arabian Stud Book. Neposeda was also 'The Queen of Tersk,' a title she reinforced by winning the 'Certificate of the First Degree' at the All-Union Exhibition in 1961 and by being named Champion at the same exhibition in 1971 at age 16. Three of her daughters - Nesravnennaja (by *Salon), Nemezida (by Arax), and Nega (by Aswan) - won 'Certificates of the First Degree' in 1971, placing second to their dam, in effect.

Neposeda sons and daughters have been sold to Holland, Sweden, and England. Nasmeshnik (by Arax) went to England in 1966, when he was three, and came to Canada in 1977 in a lease trade between his owners and Howie Kale. This was pre-acceptance by the Arabian Horse Registry of America, so the plan was to breed and register Russian stock in Canada. Unfortunately, Nasmeshnik died a year after his importation, but he had served the purpose of helping to interest Howie Kale in the Russian-bred Arabians when Howie saw him in England in 1974. That interest led to a trip to Tersk.

Another Neposeda son, Namek (also by Arax), went to Kossack Stud in Holland in 1979, when he was 15. Only two years earlier, he won a 'Certificate of the First Degree' at the All-Union Exhibition. Neposeda's son *Napitok (by the Aswan son Pirit) has been at Zodiac Farm since 1979, where he is syndicated. In 1981, Zodiac trainer Spike Barter showed him to Canadian National Champion Park and U.S. National Top Ten Park. *Njuans, Neposeda's 1971 son by Aswan, is at Bardon Arabians at Scottsdale.

Neposeda's daughters, Nemezida (by Arax), Nega (by Aswan), and Nesravnennaja (by Arax) [SEE NOTE BELOW], are all valued broodmares at Tersk, following the family tradition. Nemezida is the dam of Numizmat (by Aswan), who is at Peeters' Arabica Stud in Belgium, and of his full brother, the ill-fated Antey, 1982 National Champion of Holland, who died earlier this year in Holland.

Another Neposeda daughter went to Holland as a four-year-old in 1970. Nefisa (by *Salon) was later owned by Peeters' Arabica Stud in Belgium where she was a treasured broodmare. She returned to Holland to Kossack Stud and is now owned by Ken Guilbeaux, who imported her son *Pattrone by Patron (Aswan x Podruga).

*Narada is the last Neposeda offspring to be imported. She was high-selling lot at the 1981 Tersk auction, purchased by Bob Stratmore for $350,000.

Neposeda died in July 1979 at Tersk.

NOTE: As stated earlier in the article, Nesravnennaja was sired by *Salon. This reference showing her sired by Arax is a typo in the article.
