Our Horses' Ancestors







Abu Farwa

(Rabiyas x *Rissletta)

Chestnut stallion Foaled 1940

Bred by the W.K.Kellogg Institute

Abu Farwa was a copper chestnut stallion of magnificent presence and classic beauty. Standing 15.1 1/2 hands, and weighing 1075 pounds, he showed no hint of coarseness, yet had unusual substance and good flat bone. Abu Farwa's clean chiselled head, fine throatlatch and long, arched neck were among his his outstanding points. His ideal conformation of neck allowed him to set his head naturally without severe bitting or forced collection. Abu Farwa was bred for both beauty and performance, inheriting his high airy trot from both sides of the pedigree, with two crosses to *Berk and several lines to other horses which had unusual ability at this gait. Although he is a great-grandson of Gulastra in the direct male line and is the chief progenitor of Gulastra blood, Abu Farwa combined both the leading lines of the breed-Skowronek and Gulastra-as his dam's sire was the elegant Naseem, considered by Lady Wentworth to be the best son of Skowronek. Abu Farwa was shown on only a few occasions, but won blues in nearly every instance and was champion of the 1948 spring all-Arabian show as well as winner of the three-gaited class. Among his numerous winners in performance classes Tamarlane, several-times winner of the highpoint award in the performance division and well known from coast to coast for his wins in three-gaited, combination, parade, harness and pleasure classes; while as an example of the opposite extreme in types of work. Abu Farwa's daughter Barq had been practically unbeatable in stock horse events. Another daughter of Abu Farwa was very well known, this being the purebred mare Wahana, out of Mehana by Hanad, that took the equine lead in the TV series "My Friend Flicka".

(*Morafic x *Bint Maisa el Saghira)
grey stallion

straight Egyptian
Al Khamsa

full brother to Shaikh al Badi




Amerigo was bred by Frisco Mari of California and won many championships during his career. Four years after being named 1966 Reserve National Champion Stallion, he returned to add a Top Ten to his credentials. In 1974, he was sold to Emkay Arabians, then of Ohio and later of Arizona. Between 1965 and 1987 he sired 227 foals and, while there is no doubt that Khemosabi heads the list, close to 35 others became champions. At least 9 have been awarded the Legion of Merit or Legion of Honor and 8 are National winners. They include Marrone, Khemosabi, Emkay First Lady, Emkay Tamarigo, Bantu AMerigo, Emkay Ameseyna, Amerigos Siren and the Half-Arabian B-Amerigo.

Amerigo was out of the Polish mare *Szarza, who was imported by Frisco Mari in 1961  She arrived in foal to Comet and produced *Corsair. As a sire for Dr. Don & Lois Thiel, *Corsair is perhaps best known for his daughter Susecion, dam of 7 champions including the double National Champion Mares Bask Melody and Fire Music. He is also the sire of 3 National winners; 5-time Top Ten Gelding Diamond Corjet, Canadian National Champion Informal Combination winner Diamon Kuntrie and the US Top Ten in English Pleasure AO 18+ Star Warrior.

Amerigo was *Szarza's first American bred foal and the following 6 were all sired by Regis, a son of Ferseyn.  In order of birth they were Reginaa (Nationals and Legion of Merit winner), Aragon, Amadeo, ADV Stantiago ( all halter champions).  Carsima (Regional Top 5 Pleasure Driving) and Andaluzia.




bred by Albigowa State Stud, Poland
imported 1961 by Varian Arabians









Balalajka(Amurath-Sahib PASB x *Iwonka III #3937)
1941-1957 grey mare

BALALAJKA was born in Poland in 1941. Her dam was the good Polish broodmare, *IWONKA III (who later was imported to the United States), and her sire was AMURATH-SAHIB.

BALALAJKA produced eleven foals. She was truly the Queen of Poland as she produced one top foal after another. Arabians with names like *BASK++, BANDOLA, *BACHANTKA, BANIO and ARFA.
BALALAJKA’S last foal was born in 1957. She was 16 at the time. She died that same year.


*Bask++ (Witraz x Balalajka) was born February 9, 1956 at Albigowa State Stud in Poland.

*Bask++ (picture by Johnny Johnston)After racing for four years in Poland and retireing absolutely sound, *Bask was imported to the United States by Lacroix Arabians where he was named  US National Champion at Halter and the next year National Champion Park Horse, the only stallion to accomplish this remarkable feat.

The following year he was Reserve National Champion in Formal Driving and Combination.

He has sired a legacy that may never be equalled.  In the 1980 Canadian and US Nationals alone, *Bask++ get and grandget accounted for 90 Top Tens, including 14 champions and six reserves!

And now, 20 years after his death, his blood continues to be the most sought after for Arabian breeders who are concentrating on the Polish lines and tall, atheletic horses.

Bay Abi++ 
Bay Abi1.jpg (29476 bytes) (Erabbi x Angyl)
1954-1986 bay stallion
bred by Loyd Silva
*Mirage sire line

1962 US National Champion Stallion
1963 Legion of Merit
1964 Scottsdale Reserve Champion English Pleasure
1964 US National Top-10 English Pleasure
1964 US National Top-10 Western Pleasure

Bay Abi has 23 National winners from his 275 foals. Bay El Bey is his most outstanding son; not only has he been Canadian National Champion Stallion, but was twice US Reserve National Champion Stallion and, has 5 more Top Tens. Having sired the outstanding sires Barbary, Bey Shah and Huckleberry Bey, Bay El Bey has been given the title of "King Maker" and has established a dynasty in the show ring and in the breeding shed.

Other Bay Abi notables include Bay Kinra (Reserve National Champion Western Pleasure), Baytar (National Champion Gelding and Western Pleasure), Contessa Bay (Reserve National Champion Western Sidesaddle), FW Flyte (Reserve National Champion Futurity Mare), Kloi Sinay (National Champion Futurity Stallion), and Mikado (National Champion Park).

Bay Abi is out of Angyl, a mare who carries 3/4 Polish blood, being by *Raseyn (by the Polish born Skowronek) and out of the Polish import *Wierna. *Wierna is by Ofir who was so important to the Polish breeding program, but is best recognized as the sire of Witraz (sire of *Bask), Wielki Szlem, and *Witez II.

Bay El Bey++

Wenonah Varian was the first to recognize *Naganka's foal for what he would become; she named him Bay El Bey, or "son of Bay." Sheila, distracted by family illness and the burdens of running the ranch, noted only that he was "nice" when he was born. As a yearling, he rated "special." It was not until he was 2 that she began to sense that he had a role to play at Varian Arabians.

The following year, she showed Bay El Bey to the first of a series of victories and high placings in the show ring, as well as bred him to one mare. His first foal, a filly named Reina Del Bey, arrived in 1972, precipitating eight more breedings -- and it was in that second crop that Bay El Bey produced Barbary, the first of the impressive lineup of stallions who would become outstanding competitors as well as breeding horses, earning their sire (and now, as the generations go forward, grandsire or great-grandsire) the epithet "The Kingmaker." Those first youngsters were enough to let Sheila know that Bay El Bey was the next step in her program; it remained only for him to make a name in the show ring.

In a halter career that spanned six years, the striking bay attracted considerable attention, never finishing out of the top ten in seven national appearances.

"What I remember most about him was his amazing neck, the same type that Bay Abi had, but with even more stretch and elegance," comments breeder Mike Nichols, who first saw Bay El Bey on a 1974 visit to Varian Arabians, which resulted in his purchase of the yearling Barbary. "The trick is to get certain things simultaneously; none is more important than the other -- type is crucial, correctness, performance, athletic ability, disposition -- you've really got to get all of those or you don't have what we're looking for and you don't have anything you can go on with. Bay El Bey was living evidence of that and how brilliantly it bred on."

That Bay El Bey was athletically inclined was apparent. In preparing for his halter competition, he often enjoyed an unconventional training regimen. One year, getting ready for Nationals, Sheila conditioned him with extensive rides in the country around Arroyo Grande, accompanied by her whippet Amber, and unofficially, a jackrabbit. "Every day, the jackrabbit would always be in the same spot, and every day we'd chase it, my dog and my horse and me. We'd be going wide open through rough country." Every day, she adds, the rabbit escaped. "That was Bay El Bey's exercise that year. I always exercised him under saddle, never longed him."

At Scottsdale in 1973, the combination was undeniable. "There were a lot of good horses in the [stallion halter] class," recalls Frank Evans, who judged the competition. So respected an official was Evans that he later was named one of only seven Judges Emeritus by the American Horse Shows Association. "When Sheila led Bay El Bey up for me to examine, he had everything I liked in a sire. He was masculine, had a tremendous amount of quality, and a lot of substance. It's hard to find all three of those things together. Then when she led him out for me to look at him in motion, and she turned the corner down at the end of the ring, I never saw a horse move so pretty in my life. I'll always remember that. There was no doubt in my mind; he was the best horse in the class. I made him champion. I think he was one of the most outstanding stallions that I ever judged."

As important as his physical presence was the sheer force of his personality. "Bay El Bey had the temperament that we see in all the descendants -- ready to work, full of fire, but completely sweet," says Mike Nichols. "That's what characterized everything that's come down from him."

"He had an extremely gentle inner side," Sheila concurs, "but he was very willing and enthusiastic in his own way." She searches for adjectives. "Bay El Bey was stately, wise, thoughtful, kind ..."

It was that gentle honesty that was nearly their undoing at the Canadian Nationals of 1977, when after a long, hard class, when everyone was tiring, Sheila knew that Bay El Bey had been giving his best, and let up a little.

As the judges made one final tour of the ring, a voice commanded, "Show me your horse!" It was Judge Tom McNair, card in hand.

"She got after it, and it was like magic," McNair recalls. "She made him look magnificent, and I was so relieved because there were several horses in there that could have gone [national champion]." He considers the memory, and becomes more specific. "I was seeing a really nice horse. When I say that, I'm talking about a correct horse, one that had a very expressive face, a really good poll area and neck to follow it, a good shoulder, good leg. He was the epitome of the athlete; he had a beautiful way of moving. To me, he stood out. I was delighted to see that he won the championship."

In addition to his Canadian National Championship in Stallion Halter, Bay El Bey was named 1974 and '76 U.S. National Reserve Champion Stallion, and earned seven top tens as well as eight championships and reserves at regional and Class A shows. Sheila also presented him briefly in English pleasure, totaling up three championships, three reserves and the Region II Championship.

By the late 1970s, Bay El Bey's growing reputation as a sire outweighed any desire Sheila Varian had to show him. He remained full time at Arroyo Grande, where he and Bay Abi formed one of the only national champion father and son teams to share a barn. In 1984, however, Bay El Bey was on the move, this time to Florida, where he was leased by Rohara Arabians for two years of stud duty. In the days before the use of transported semen, the move east provided increased exposure for the stallion and allowed his son, Huckleberry Bey, more opportunity to develop his own following on the West Coast.

"The first time I led him through the breeding shed, he became like a 10-story building with the momentum of knowing he was going to be bred," Rohara's Roxann Hart remembers. "Sheila's words kept running through my head, that he was a perfect gentleman, and I just hoped she was right!"

During his two-year residence in Florida, Bay El Bey established an indelible link with Rohara. "He's a part of our program through all three sons and one grandson, JK Amadeus," says Hart. "Even this year, so many years later, I would say that half of our show horses are either grandsons or great-grandsons (or daughters) of Bay El Bey -- 50 percent of the show string that we showed, and we had 21 entries at Region XII." His contribution? "Mostly the motion, the stretch, the overall athletic ability."

His disposition was appreciated as well. "He knew people and related to them," Roxann recalls. "He trusted those people he knew. In the barn, he knew each person's job. He was one of the most aware stallions; he was totally confident in his surroundings and who he was, and had an awareness of everything that transpired in his domain."

When Bay El Bey returned to Varian Arabians, it was to live out his days in the front paddock, the one which had been Bay Abi's and was reserved for the patriarch. Public attention was gradually shifting to his son, the charismatic Huckleberry Bey, and to his grandsons. Bay El Bey's last foal was registered in 1985, and living in genteel retirement, he was allowed to pass his days pretty much as he wished.

"Almost every time someone came to the barn, Sheila would ask me to stand him up for the visitors," relates trainer Steve Heathcott, who worked at Varian Arabians at the time. "Every single time I did it, he showed as good as any show horse I ever had, and I mean every time I did it. The funny thing was, I don't remember ever schooling him in between -- it's not like I kept him tuned up to show. When people arrived, I'd show him, and he'd show like the ones in show training who were being schooled three or four times a week."

In later years, Bay El Bey spent much of his time with Varian Arabians breeding manager Angela Alvarez, who at the time was a newcomer. Bay El Bey became her mentor.

"He stopped breeding mares just as I started a job of breeding mares," she recalls. From the beginning, there was a special bond between them.

Sheila Varian particularly remembers the sight of Bay El Bey and Angela, heading out to the back pasture to tease the mares, a duty the stallion took over from his sire, Bay Abi. "You'd see an empty 20-acre pasture when Angela led Bay El Bey in ... and then, over the hill, the mares and foals would come running to greet him. Because they were used to him and knew him, the mares didn't object when the foals came up to him, and he would stand with the babies all around him, talking to the mares. There was no striking, no biting, no rearing -- he knew what to do and how to do it."

"He was a once-in-a-lifetime horse for me," says Angela. The memories still bring tears to her eyes. "For those of us who love horses, who have had that 'special' horse touch their life and capture their heart -- they become our equine soul mates.

"Bay El Bey and I trusted each other. He had a strength and seriousness about him that I admired and a playfulness that I loved. If I wasn't moving fast enough to those pastures, he'd get behind me and nudge me in the back. I miss those nudges ... especially every morning around 8 o'clock."

By the early 1990s, the success of Bay El Bey's descendants was staggering. Through Huckleberry Bey and Barbary, his influence in the performance arena was profound; through Bey Shah, he nearly dominated the halter ranks. He had sired 441 registered foals, including nearly 100 champions and more than 30 national titlists. When he died on November 25, 1996, the Arabian world knew that the most important sire of sires in the 20th century had passed.

Over 35 years after his death, COMET blood is still revered in Polish Arabian bloodlines.
His daughters were highly priced possessions, his sons were no less
admired.  COMET in a pedigree meant trot, type and a certain style
that was uniquely "COMET."

COMET died far too young, at age 11 of colic.  The Arabian world still mourns his loss.

Indian Gold


Jurneeka is the dam of 8 foals, 5 of whom became Champions or Reserves - Per Se (*Bask), Jurdino (Regis), El Paso Grande (*El Paso), Conquest (Amerigo) and Khemosabi. In addition to Khemosabi, 3 have added National winners to the family total - Jurdino is the sire of Canadian Top Ten Gelding/Top Ten Pleasure Driving winner Jurseyne, the National Champion Working Cow Horse Ibn Jurdino and Reserve National Champion English Pleasure winner Cardina. The Jurneeka daughter Jurlaina (by *Eter) is the dam of Diamon Jimm who was Top Ten in Western Pleasure AO-13 and Western Sidesaddle and Diamond Bask a Reserve National Champion in Pleasure Driving. Last, Khemosabi's full brother Conquest sired the Half- Arabian DW Seaquest who won two Top Tens in Park and a NSH Top Ten in Country Pleasure Amateur.

Jurneeka is a daughter of "the Fabulous Fadjur", a stallion known for both his presence and his kindness. Fadjur was bred by Frank McCoy but gained prominence as a show horse and sire after he was sold as a yearling to the Jack Tone's of California. His Nationals' career spanned Ten years from his first Top Ten in 1959 until his last at the 1969 Canadian show when he was 17. He was US Reserve National Champion Stallion in 1960 and 1968 and had US Top Tens in 1961 and 1963.

Fadjur is the sire of 820 purebred foals (plus many part-breds) and was so popular that he was bred year-round in order to accommodate all his ladies. Long before exporting horses from the United States became the norm, Fadjur offspring were traveling to owners around the globe. Fadjur has nearly 120 champions with at least 16 of that number having won the Legion of Merit or Legion of Honor. He has 23 National winners, three of whom are part-breds. The list of National CHAMPIONSHIPS only includes Fadalan (Gelding Halter), Fadloren (Stock) Ibn Fadjur (Stallion Halter), Marjanazam (Pleasure Driving) Sakifa (Mare Halter) and Zanntara (Trail).

Jurneeka's dam Fadneeka is by Fadheilan (as is Fadjur) who was half-Egyption and half-Polish. Fadneeka is a full sister to the Top Ten Mare Neeka and to Fadduda, dam of 2 National winners- Top Ten Mare Neeka and Sun-Fadroyal, Top Ten Formal Combination. While Jurneeka is the only one to win National honors, Fadneeka's daughter Bar Reefa (by Aarief) produced the Top Ten Sidesaddle and Costume winner Dixie Gem (by Galizon). Fadneeka's total champion tally is 4 , thus matching that of her dam Raneeka.

Lalage as a yearlingLALAGE was bred in England by Miss P.M. Lindsay at her Stockings Farm and was born in 1963.  She was of pure Polish breeding and was later exported to Sweden (at age 2) where she later became a broodmare for Erik Erlandsson.  Mr. Erlandsson was the breeder of  *ALADDINN.  Thought to be small, but of exquisite type, LALAGE was a classic Polish mare.

LALAGE had been injured on one of her legs after her arrival in Sweden, and because of this she was slightly lame.

Talisman Bey

Talisman Bey was Champion Stallion at the Virginia State Horse Show and Reserve Junior Champion Colt at the 1983 Buckeye.  From that time on, Talisman Bey was promoted through his progeny rather than continuing his show career.  By the end of the 1986 show season, 20 Talisman Bey offspring had won nearly 60 championships.  Talisman Bey combines the strength and conformation of his male lineage with the beauty and refinement of his dam.  His ability to reproduce these traits with regularity has earned him a reputation as one of the important young sires in the Arabian breed.
