Mahr Rou, known to his fans as either Maxim or Sparky, moved in with us in the spring of 2014. His attitude has been wonderful and he is a very compliant stallion with the typical, easy going nature that we find so often in the Straight Babson Egyptian Arabians.
Maxim is an important SBE stallion. He is the only reproducing son of his sire, Serr El Rou. Maxim is part of the dwindling four horse pedigree, meaning he traces back to only four of the 1932 Babson imports: *Fadl, *Maaroufa, *Bint Serra I, and *Bint Bint Sabbah. Maxim's one colt is however, not a part of the four horse group, leaving Maxim in a very important place in history.
Maxim will be joining our show string just as soon as we figure out what this extremely tractable stallion will excel at, because so far, it has been EVERYTHING! He is a working ranch horse who has begun learning Dressage with no issues. He does anything asked of him, no matter how unfamiliar it is to him! He is easy to handle and we often find ourselves checking to make sure things are still in their place! Sometimes, I wonder if he is really a stallion. Even the vet thought he was a gelding the first time he met him.
He has been very easy to breed, and is available by live cover and AI. He has very good sperm count and motility and is capable of getting mares bred in one try!
