Preservation Breeders of Straight Babson Egyptians


Mahrouf x Bah Habba
1980 - 1994

Mah Hab (Mahrouf x Bah Habba) was a wonderful dark bay stallion. I first saw this horse in 1988 and he captured my heart with his beauty and powerful trotting action. He shared his pasture with a grey gelding that he met well after he was already a mature breeding stallion. They shared their hay and stall. Mah Hab had a exceptional disposition even among Babsons which are noted for quiet, mellow dispositions.
Mah Hab was shown at dressage by Gayle and Bob Tyler's daughter Lisa and did very well in Open competition.  He sired seven Straight Babson foals through the efforts and energy of Bob and Gayle (of Mansfield, Texas), bringing his Babson replacement foals to ten.  

We were honored to be owned by his daughter Bint Roulett.     DMJ

MAH HAB - Soon after Bill Flemion became a trainer for Bentwood Farms in 1984, he saw the breeding crew's pickup truck driving down the three mile "long road" that laced between the broodmare pastures. Tied to the tailgate was a tease stallion. "He was the best stud on the place! ­ About the strongest horse I've ever seen pounding down the hard road six miles a day, seven days a week, for years, yet those big feet, and substantially boned legs showed no sign of stress ... gorgeous dark bay, very compact, tight-coupled, large thoughtful eye and refined head with curvy ears that curled back." Bill's co-trainer, Kathy Johnson, was also so impressed that together they told Jarrell McCracken, "Your finest stallion is out there working as a tease stallion. We want him in the training barn." Three days later, Mah Hab moved into the barn, joining Ansata Abbas Pasha, Moniet El Sharaf, Prince Fa Moniet, and other luminaries. 

"Mah Hab was easy to handle in every situation, where as some of the other studs required two handlers just to walk out of the barn." Mah Hab began to learn to pull a carriage. "I drove him all over the farm. One day, Jarrell was in his new office overlooking the long road, and we trotted by. He was blown away with that horse and from then on Mah Hab was appreciated. Lisa showed him locally and decided to breed him to a few mares. I never did understand why Mah Hab was not made Bentwood's top stallion at stud. He could have greatly improved Egyptian horses." -Interview with Bill Flemion, manager of W. R. Hearst's San Simeon Stables, CA, by Joan Schleicher, 5/18/2003.  

Mah Hab sired 3 Straight Babson Egyptians while at Bentwood: AK Mahroufa (x Roufah) in 1983, AK Kasamah (x AK Kasida) in 1987 and AK Seramah (x AK Bint Serasaab) in 1987.

MAH HAB (Mahrouf x Bah Habba) 1980 bay stallion bred by the Babson Arabian Horse Farm and owned by Bob and Gayle Tyler. Mah Hab, a full brother to Babson Farm sire Mah Deluque, was sold as a youngster to Bentwood Farms in Texas where he sired a number of foals before that farm's dispersal sale. Mah Hab then came into the ownership of the Tylers where he was a beloved member of the family. The Tylers successfully showed him in Dressage and also continued to replacement breed him within his straight Babson breeding group. His loss is untimely­ and he will be missed by his many admirers.
