Preservation Breeders of Straight Babson Egyptians


What is a Without *Maaroufa Babson?

Today all Straight Babsons have *Fadl, *Bint Bint Sabbah  and *Bint Serra in their pedigrees. Only a handful of Straight Babsons do not also trace to the prolific Babson import mare *Maaroufa. *Maaroufa had 15 Babson foals and is widely represented in Babson lines. Preserving the Without *Maaroufa subgroup represents an interesting diversity subgroup within the Babson group.  

This group is referred to as Without *Maaroufa (or in the past non-*Maaroufa) as what defines this group is not having *Maaroufa in the pedigree.  While this is a rare subgroup, it is not more important or more special than any other subgroup within the Babson group.  (Every Babson is part of some subgroup.)  It is just different and it's importance lies in the diversity that it offers to the future of the Babson group.

The goal in preserving the  Without *Maaroufas is to  maintain this small subgroup with as much bloodline diversity as possible and to make its influence available for future breeders to use in their programs.

The Without *Maaroufa subgroup population entering the year 2000 included 10 mares and 14 stallions.   The highest replacement year in the decade of the 1990s was 1991 when 3 foals were born.  The 2005 breeding population census includes 4 stallions and 5 mares.
