(Baske-Tu by *Bask++ x Mi Raquel by *Bask++)
1978 black stallion
Syrtaki was the horse that pretty much started it all
for us. Purchased in 1985, Syrtaki was selected for his
beautiful Arabian type, smooth body, and incredible
pedigree (a double *Bask++ grandson).
It soon became evident that his rare black color was
definitely an added bonus from a marketing stand point.
Thus began our interest in breeding black Arabians.
Our main goal has always been to breed quality horses
with type, outstanding conformation, fabulous movement,
and great pedigrees. Getting the black color on
top of that became an added challenge.
Syrtaki had a fabulous temperament and was a much
loved member of our family. He died much too young at
the age of 19 due to an entrolith. He is still greatly
missed and we regret not having any of his descendants
still in our breeding program.
