on the cover is Saafaddan A.H.R. #13488, the last Babson

was foaled on the Babson Farm in 1958. Shortly thereafter he was
purchased by Mrs. John E. Otto Unfortunately, as his sire was

Saafaddan in his turn was shelved in favor of such stallions as
Sirecho, Bel Gordas and Zarlan. Not until he came to Decatur,
"Perhaps Saafaddan's most significant gift will prove to be Ibn Saafaddan, Saafaddan's only Babson Egyptian son, foaled after his sire's death. He is out of the Faddan granddaughter Daal Aba.
Many Arabians of rare and valuable blood have slipped by us in the past. Fortunately for Saafaddan and for the breed, in a few short years at stud he has left a number of well-bred offspring to insure a strong source of *Bint Saada blood for future generations of Arabian horses."
Saafaddan's SBE Foals
Masada Saadurra tragically died at 6 months.
Masada Serrasaada produced 4 SBE daughters.
Masada El Aba produced 7 foals, 2 SBE.
Ibn Saafaddan sired 16 foals, 6 SBE, 3 daughters and 3 sons.
