The Royal Arabians of Egypt and the Stud of Henry B. Babson – Judith Forbis & Walter Schimanski

R1,600.00

“Everyone who loves or yearns for Arabian horses can gather encouragement from the example set by Henry B. Babson. Forty-four years ago Henry Babson’s search for ideal classic Arabians led him to the Nile Valley and the Royal Studfarms of Egypt. Here the desert steeds he had envisioned in his mind’s eye became an exciting reality. Five celebrated mares and two stallions, highborn Arabians of ancient lineage, were gratefully acquired and shipped to America, where they formed the nucleus of his eventually workd-famous breeding farm – the Babson Arab stud. Today many people, regardless of age, are experiencing the same all-consuming passion to own and breed these celestial creatures How much greater their opportunity might be to create a renowned stud, for Mr. Babson was already fifty-seven when he began his Arabian breeding program? Join us now in the story of this pioneer American who reached out and achieved many goals through holding to the ideals that made America great. For anyone who desires to create an Arabian breeding farm – or anything of lasting value – we believe Mr. Babson would have suggested this guideline: “Ideals are like stars. We can never reach them, but, like the ancient mariners, we chart our course by them.”
