Bred by Sharon Y. Pardo, Palo Alto, California

This wonderful and very appealing son of the internationally successful Ben Rabba was bred by Sharon Y. Pardo.

For almost 30 years Sharon had a Crabbet/American breeding program of high quality horses which were little known because she never advertised or showed and kept most of the horses she bred. It was only after poor health caused the dispersal of her horses that a few others began to be aware of them.

Sharonís breeding program began with the very good and exquisitely beautiful Kellogg-bred filly Gazlowa, a daughter of Farlowa and Gazya, who also produced Zadir. After almost 30 years of breeding, all but one or two of Sharonís horses traced to Gazlowa at least once, and sometimes more. For most of her breeding career, Sharon bred her mares to outstanding outside stallions.

Rabba Baronís dam, Bay-Karel, was a daughter of Gazlowa. Bay-Karel was sired by Sheila Varianís Bay-Abi, a U. S. National Champion Stallion at halter who later proved his ability to sire not only more halter champions, but also both western and English winners and champions. Some thought Bay-Karel was one of Bay-Abiís best daughters; she was particularly appreciated for her absolutely splendid hindquarters.

Rabba Baronís pedigree reads like a whoís who in the world of Crabbet/American Arabian horses; the pedigree is a roster of many of the very best and most outstanding Arabians of their times.

Rabba Baron was a well conformed horse of good balance. He had excellent legs. He had lots of Arabian type, including unusually large eyes which he often sired, a beautiful Arabian tail carriage, and plenty of Arabian style. He was a fine horse to ride and he loved to go out, moving rapidly and with ease along the trail, sometimes doing his natural amble which is an almost tireless ground covering gait that is very easy on both horse and rider. In his younger days Rabba Baron was well trained to do ranch stock work and actually did work a little with cattle; he loved this too. He was a very easy horse to live with; there were no management problems with Rabba Baron. He got along well not only with people and children, but also with other horses. His disposition was simply all-around ideal.

Rabba Baron was owned during his last years by Angela Lewis, Saddleback Arabians, Janesville, California, where he stood at stud until his death on March 2, 2007, at age 22. Angela has a fine replacement son of Rabba Baronís to carry on for him; the son is 2006 bay Sb Criminal Justice x Janice Sidersís Star of Royalty (The Night Star x Dynasty Royalette).
