Sheykh Obeyd

Sheykh Obeyd was a stud farm that raised Arabian horses, located near Cairo, Egypt. It was founded by Wilfred Scawen Blunt and Lady Anne Blunt in the late 1800s, was the home of Lady Anne following her divorce from Wilfred, and was where she lived until her death. The foundation bloodstock for Sheykh Obeyd came primarily from the breeding program of Ali Pasha Sherif, and the best animals were sent on to the Blunts' Crabbet Arabian Stud in England.
