It was a lifelong dream of Asante' Arabians co-founder, Danny Cable to raise and breed Straight Egyptian Arabians. It all started back in the seventies when he was showing Polish-bred Arabians on the Midwest show circuit and saw his first Straight Egyptian. It was love at first sight! He never forgot the beauty and presence of this amazing animal!
Danny began studying and trying to find out everything he could about these beautiful horses. One day while looking at the Arabian Horse World magazine, he came across a picture of a magnificent Straight Egyptian stallion named ANSATA IBN HALIMA. After seeing him and learning his bloodlines, he knew this was what he wanted. He called Judith Forbis, the owner of Ansata, and talked to her about purchasing one of her horses. She was very gracious to him, even after learning that he could not afford her horses at that time. Instead of cutting the conversation short, she continued to educate him on ANSATA IBN HALIMA and other Ansata horses. Even though Danny never met her, she left a lasting impression on a young man just getting out of school.
After getting married, Danny gave up his Arabians, as his wife, Debbie was showing gaited horses and it was hard to combine the two breeds on a show circuit, but Danny always held that dream in the back of his mind...The dream of owning Straight Egyptian Arabians.
Fast-forward about 25 years to 2012. Danny finally got an opportunity to purchase his first Straight Egyptian mare sired by THEE INFIDEL. Through an estate sale from a friend, he purchased INFIDELS ANGEL. After that, things just started falling into place. Beth Nash visited his ranch looking to purchase a riding horse. She told him that she once owned Mecca Arabians and stood the world-class breeding stallion, IMPERIAL IMDAL. She told him that she had a white stallion sired by him (HEIR BORN), and that he had been at her place since he was born. Beth said she kept HEIR BORN on her farm because he reminded her so much of IMPERIAL IMDAL, who she loved so much. Also under her ownership was the top-ten National Champion, KMF ALI CALYPSO, a beautiful bay stallion. So a few phone calls later and a visit, Danny purchased both of these great stallions.
Soon after that Danny called his best friend, Walt Bagar and his wife, Donna, who are avid horse lovers. They came over to look at his new stallions. Like Danny, Walt thought they were the most beautiful horses he had ever seen, and later that day he and his wife became co-owners. It was at that time Asante' Arabians' was born. Since then Asante' Arabians has purchased an ANAZA EL FARID daughter, and an IBN SAFINAZ daughter to their breeding program.
In late 2015 Danny sold his interest in Asante’ Arabians, leaving Walt and Donna as the sole owners of Asante’ Arabians and their beautifully bred, Straight Egyptian Arabian horses.
Sadly, in June of 2017 Danny passed away and will always be missed. We also had to say goodbye to KMF Ali Calypso who passed away in April of 2017.
