More about Amir: The Significance of Amir Seralim BWA by Debra Schrishuhn Amir Seralim BWA 1993 black stallion (Ru Amir Ser x SC Salima) is the only viable source of both of his parents and four grandparents within Heirloom, and is the only registered foal of his dam. Ru Amir Ser, a Straight Egyptian Babson, was a son of Bint Gammousa 1963 bay mare (Negem x Gammousa, full sister to champion-producing Shar Sabbah) and Ru Amir Ser is her only extant son in Heirloom. Ru Amir Ser's sire, Amirs Ser Rah (Amir Ibn Faserr x Bahrou), sired 12 purebred foals, but Ru Amir Ser was the only Heirloom foal. Both Ru Amir Ser and his sire are also lost to the Straight Babson gene pool. Bint Gammousa remains extant among the Sheykh Obeyd Straight Babson population. Amir Seralim BWA is the only registered foal of his dam SC Salima (Ansata El Alim x Safaara RSI), making him her only link to the entire Arabian breed, not just Heirloom, Sheykh Obeyd, Al Khamsa, and The Pyramid Society. Her sire had only two Heirloom foals and his other daughter Solimah 1991 (x Solafisa) has never produced a foal, so in effect SC Salima is Heirloom's only link to Ansata El Alim (*Ansata Ibn Halima++ x *Ansata Bint Zaafarana). SC Salima's dam, Safaara RSI (Faarad x RSI Sara), was a unique breeding (no full siblings) and of her 11 purebred foals, SC Salima was her only Heirloom foal. *Ansata Bint Zaafarana's blood is found through three offspring: her daughter Ansata Zareifa (three living Heirloom descendants of breeding age), Ansata El Alim, and Ansata El Nisr (whose line is well established). So if Brandywine Arabians had not bred Amir Seralim BWA to ensure the continuance of his line, Heirloom would have lost Ru Amir Ser (Straight Babson already lost to the Babson line), Amirs Ser Rah (Straight Babson already lost to the Babson line), Bint Gammousa (Straight Babson), Ansata El Alim (vector of *Ansata Bint Zaafarana), SC Salima (otherwise lost to the entire Arabian breed), and Safaara RSI. That's a lot of ancestors funneled down into one horse. And these are not backyard horses—the Babsons have impressive close ancestors in their pedigrees and performance credentials. Amir Ibn Faserr competed successfully in Western Pleasure. His sire Ibn Fa-Serr (Fa-Serr x Fa Deene) was one of the major sires at the Babson Farm. Babson historian Diana Johnson gives him the title of the third most prolific sire within the closed Babson group, after foundation sire *Fadl and his son, 1955 National Grand Champion Fa-Serr (also a black horse, by the way). Bahrou was a daughter of Fabah (*Fadl x *Bint Bint Sabbah), assessed by Babson Farm manager John Vogel as "probably as consistent a sire as any horse I’ve ever known.” (Joe Ferriss, “An Interview with Babson Farm Manager, John Vogel,” Khamsat, 14: 4: 34-35) Fabah sired many National winners in halter and performance and producers of National Champions in halter and performance. Negem (Fa-Serr x Fay-Negma), another black horse, was herd sire for Char-Shar Farms throughout his life. This information was generously provided by Debra Kay Schrishuhn "The Heirloom Research Group"
