  The Latest News

This is a place for farm news, show results and other messages.  It will be added to as we have news or information to put up.  Check back periodically to see what is happening.  The most recent news will be at the top of the page.  Your cursor placed on the photos will give more information about the subject.    

 Technology Gremlins

Bint Saafada and a UFO - Could Aliens be the cause of the connection problems?  

      If you are having trouble reaching us by email it is due to a problem with our internet connection.  Keep the notes coming, we will eventually get them and reply.  I have been adding photos and stories to the website that will appear as the connection allows me to upload.

We switched from "dial up" to "broadband" and have had problems ever since.  It can be weeks between connections that last more than a few minutes.  If exhaustion permits, this winter when the days get shorter and the evenings longer I should be able to spend enough time with Tech Support to get this problem solved.  

Hopefully this challenge of technology is to be solved soon. 


Ibn Sabbah Bedu+/ is now Ibn Sabbah Bedu+//.  A year after Sabbah joined the Celestial Herd and ten years after Sabbah was last shown, we got a letter from the Arabian Horse Association saying he had earned enough points while he was showing to receive his Legion of Excellence (+//) award!

Sadly we lost our dear Almoraima Ceniza in March 2012.  She was 23 years old and had been "family" for 19 years.  Ceniza was always happy and willing to do anything that was asked of her.  She was a very special friend.

We Are Celebrating!!!

Fabah Serr (Ibn Sabbbah Bedu+/  x  Fabah Mahrena) was ridden by owner Teri Kelley to the 2011 Region 7 Reserve Championship in AOTR Trail in Scottsdale. 

This is their first show since Fall of 2009. We are so proud of this talented team and are again looking forward to cheering them on in their future adventures, in and out of the show ring.  Congradulations!!!!


Ibn Sabbah Bedu+/ 
January 7, 1985 - January 5, 2011

A beautiful rose memorial wreath send by Cyndi, one of his favorite fans.

Sabbah was a "once in a lifetime" horse for us.  He did everything we ever asked of him and did it beyond our dreams.  He is greatly missed.

Sabbah is being honored by an article in the February 2011 issue of The Arabian magazine published in the United Kingdom.

A Star Shines on in our Hearts

A Native American song tells us the starry cluster beaming, in the blue of midnight skies, ancients say a star is added, when a good woman dies...  

The Arabian horse, the Sheykh Obeyd Arabian and those who love them have lost a dear friend and fierce defender.  Julia Byfield crossed her great Rainbow Bridge on October 11, 2008.  She is greatly missed.

The soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears.   Native American proverb
