Mah Sabbah Bedu
(Ibn Sabbah Bedu+/ x Bint Roulett)
From Susan Mayo - Susar Farm, Denton Texas
While doing a lovely relaxed working canter, Sabbah suddenly slipped and fell, pinning my left leg under his body. He instantly got up, and I tried to get up to grab his reins, but I could not stand at all on a leg that had both bones broken in several places. I was really afraid that Sabbah was going to take off running while dragging his reins and begin doing stallion antics with the mares while he was fully dressed, but there was nothing I could do to get ahold of him. He is a good boy but I did not plan on turning him loose in the pasture with the mares!
When I did not get up, Sabbah came a bit closer to me, concerned, and put his head down......still not close enough for me to take his reins, but within about ten feet of me. He stood like that for fully 10 minutes until I was able to holler long and loud enough that someone heard me and brought up the gator to put me on it.
The three mares were within 50 feet of him, and he was well aware of it, but he did not make a move away from me. He stood quietly, as a highly visible guardian, marking my location and aiding in my rescue.
Susan has recovered and is back to riding Sabbah and her other horses. Mah Sabbah Bedu was bred by Bint Al Bahr Babson Arabians and co-owned by Susan Mayo and Keith Kosel. Susar Farm is not too far from the Dallas area.
