Courage, Heart and Soul … Strawberry Banks Farm
In 1978, Barbara and Neil Chur began a love affair with the Arabian horse.
They built a program based on Polish bred Arabians rich with the blood of *Bask, and the legendary mares *Elkana+, *Boltonka++ and Gdynia++.
Three stallions formed the foundation of Strawberry Banks Farm breeding:
1. A Temptation represents the SOUL of SBF. Sired by Tempter and out of A Love Song, by *Bask, he embodies the farm’s original vision of wonderful personalities and splendid Arabian characteristics, especially their great sense of self, their expressive faces, beautiful eyes and magnificent Arabian tail carriage, the prototype for the Strawberry Banks Arabian.
2. Hey Hallelujah represents the HEART of SBF. Sired by Huckleberry Bey and out of Hallelujah Bask by *Bask, Hey was always so young at heart, so willing and in love with life.
3. Baske Afire (Afire Bey V x Mac Baske, by Baskevich) brought COURAGE and STRENGTH to the breeding possibilities. He is the Leading Sire of Performance Winners 2011-2014 at the U.S. National Championship Shows. Even after his death in 2015, he still to this day, remains a Leading Sire of National Champion winners.
Major Arabian breeding operations have become a rarity in America. Strawberry Banks Farm, has maintained a formidable broodmare band dedicated to specializing in beautiful and talented English-type Arabians. Daughters of A Temptation, Hey Hallelujah and Baske Afire provide an extraordinary opportunity for English excellence. The art of breeding generations of exceptional Arabian horses is a combination of love, passion, the drive for excellence, patience, and a vision for the future.
Three generations propelling this vision are Barbara, her daughter, Lissa, and granddaughter, Sawyer.
