Ahmed Serr-Fabah was Dahma Saafada's second foal.  He was part of the rare Without *Maaroufa subgroup of Babsons.  He was started under saddle and had great potential in dressage.

We lost Ahmed Serr-Fabah to a leaf of Oleander that was baled into his hay.  More on that below.

Without *Maaroufa group information

Your curser placed on a photo will give you more information about it.

Ahmed Serr-Fabah was tragically lost to an Oleander leaf that came baled in his hay.  There are no Oleander plants anywhere near our farm.  The scary thing is all it takes for a leaf to get into my or your hay supply is for leaves to fall or be blown by the wind into an irrigation ditch and be carried in the water into the hay field then be bailed up in the hay.  

The leaves may have come from the ornamental plant growing near the ditch or from a pruned branch  that fell from a landscaper's truck going down the road. It is not likely the hay farmer will even know that this has occurred as the leaves could float several blocks or further to get to the field.   


Note the irrigation ditch below this plant and the hay field beyond.  My hay did not come from this field.

Symptoms are similar to colic but Banamine is not the drug to give as it teams with the Oleander toxins to attack the kidneys.  The lab work from Ahmed Serr-Fabah saved the lives of the two colts that  came down with the same symptoms a couple days later.  Another lab confirmed that Oleander was found in the hay samples. The remaining hay was destroyed and the supplier was contacted by our vet.

Oleanders are deceptive plants. They are beautiful and hardy in the desert heat as well as rich in color and texture, but all parts of the plant - leaves, stems, flowers and sap are poisonous and can irritate the skin.  Inhaling smoke from burning oleander debris is like inhaling rat poison.  They are readily available at any nursery in their growing area.  There are many related plants growing in southern states that are also toxic.
