Preservation Breeders of Straight Babson Egyptians

 

SERABAAR

May 5, 1970  -  October 29, 2002

 

  "Some horses come into our lives and make hoof prints on our hearts and we are never, never the same"    -   Anonymous

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 stallion.  

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+/.  

 

The data does not include points that Sabbah earned from Championships in Third Level Dressage and Regular Working Hunter or the  Reserve  Championship earned in the Stakes Working Hunter Class.  Had the points from these awards been added, Serabaar's score would have an additional 27 points (new total 46 points) placing him 14th on the list ahead of such notables as Bey Shah, Reign On, Wisdom, *Gondolier and *Padron!  A dressage photo of Ibn Sabbah Bedu+/  is shown as a "featured horse" in the Scottsdale Show Results (page 278) and does mention the Championships.

To be listed as a Top Performance Sire with some of the Arabian breed's most famous horses is certainly a great way for a grand old stallion to celebrate his 30th birthday, May 5th, 2000! 

Serabaar is represented in many Arabian lines including many black Arabians. He is the great grandsire of many time National Champion Park horse Aequus.

Serabaar left us on October 29th 2002 at 32 years young.  He was a once in a lifetime horse.  His legacy will go on.

Somewhere...Somewhere in time's Own Space
There must be some sweet pastured place
Where creeks sing on and tall trees grow
Some Paradise where horses go,
For by the love that guides my pen
I know great horses live again.
