horses come into our lives and make hoof prints on our hearts and we are never,
never the same"
Serabaar is a representive of the "without
*Maaroufa" group of Straight
Babsons. They are a small group of Babsons that do not trace to the
prolific Babson imported mare *Maaroufa.
Serabaar is a deep black/bay color
that most people think is black. He has a wonderful presence, enjoys being shown
off but could be handled with a silken thread while doing it. He is always the perfect
gentleman. At 30 years young (2000) he still loves to show off that
breath-taking extended trot!
When moved to a new pasture he
quietly waits until his halter is removed and I have started back to the gate.
He then explodes into energy as if remembering and reliving his show
performances of long ago. “And the crowd goes wild…” (and I am completely
captivated every time!)
Serabaar sired 32 foals from 1973 to 1986,
many of them Al Khamsa. His grandget number over a hundred. His only replacement within the
Straight Babson Egyptian group is Ibn Sabbah Bedu+/ (X Shar Sabbah), our dressage and jumping show
The May 2000 issue of Arabian Horse World
magazine (Page 309) lists Serabaar as a "Leading Sire of Performance
Horses." He is listed as #27 ahead of such notable famous stallions
such as *Muscat, AAF Kaset, Cognac, *El Moraduke, Monogramm, Aladdinn Echo, and
Kharben. This data was collected at the 2000 Scottsdale Show where
Serabaar was represented by only one offspring, Ibn Sabbah Bedu+/.
