Thought I had the pics of Chris mounting her at a P&R and also trotting her out in hand, but guess they're not on this computer yet.

From the AHA website:

Henry B. Babson of Chicago, Illinois, was not a young man when he set up his Arabian stud farm at Grand Detour, Illinois. Like Dickinson, he tested the Polish-Egyptian cross; his most famous stallion was the Egyptian *Fadl, who crossed on the Polish mare *Kaztelanka, produced Fadheilan, sire of Fadjur, for many years the leading living sire of champions. He differed from his contemporaries, who largely favored mating whatever horses seemed appropriate without regard to country of origin, and adhered to Egyptian bloodlines.

Best regards

When age prevents me from riding,
I will still keep horses as long as
I can shuffle along with a pail.
When I can no longer shuffle,
I will roll my wheelchair to the pasture
Fence to watch my horses graze.

I always wondered what might have been had Mr. Babson kept a straight Polish line, a straight Egyptian line and a Polish/Egyptian line. Some of his best horses were from the cross. Tobruk was an excellent horse and sire. *Sulejman was thought by many to be one of the really good stallions to ever be imported to this country. He was also according to John Vogel, Homer Watson's favorite riding horse. It is a shame that Mrs. Ticken (sp??), Mr. Babson's daughter didn't have any children or grand children to continue the farm. I visited it in August of 1992 and it was an absolutely beautiful place on a great setting. The barns and out buildings were tongue and groove hickory. Built in the 1920's or 1930's they looked so well preserved. I wonder what happened to that place. I hope someone didn't tear it all down and develop it.

I have a mare that is Babson bred on her dam line - her sire is Desperado V. Her dam is Aberjahna (Serr Bah X Sintefha). Really excited to have her - she's a lovely black bay, typey and elegant with a lovely neck on her, and I think she gets her size from her sire. Big girl.

I have a Princeton Faaris daughter and she is out of Bint Ibn Fadl the last in the WORLD! I am so happy to have her. She is bred to Sunnyru Maarine a Princton Faaris son for a Spring foal. Tara is 21 years old now. I will either breed her to an Arabi fadh Onyx son or my Sahanad grandson this spring/summer. Here is a couple pictures of her. One when she was around 17 and the other after she arrived at my place at 21.

Have always had me a major love affair w/the Babson horses. Worked at a farm that stood a young *Ibn Moniet son out of a Babson mare, truly nice colt all around.
