The Minstril x Bint Magidaa
2011 Egyptian Event Leading Dam of Champions
Few broodmares have as great a legacy to fulfill as the standard set by Bint Magidaa, and even fewer fulfill expectations this monumental. Bint Magidaa’s daughter Miss Maggie Mae was one of the elite few. The iconic photo of mother and her newest daughter in the straw seems to suggest a passing of the legacy from a queen to her newest princess.

Jointly owned by longtime friends Mark & Nancy Ness and Arabians Ltd. owner Judy Sirbasku, the beautiful, flea-bitten Miss Maggie Mae was regal and aristocratic, with large, dark eyes, a small, sculpted muzzle and perfectly shaped ears.
A result of the cross between the late world famous sire The Minstril and the legendary Bint Magidaa, Miss Maggie Mae was a genetic treasure. Through Bint Magidaa, who was 21 when Maggie Mae was born, she is a half-sibling to such greats as Ruminaja Ali, Bint Bint Magidaa, Alidaar, and barnmate Thee Infidel. Her half-sister Magidaas Image also shares the broodmare pasture with her at Arabians Ltd.
While Miss Maggie Mae was cleverly named in tribute to her immortal mother, she’s memorable now for more than her moniker. Over the course of her career as a broodmare, she produced foals that were exported all over the world and back to the homelands of their ancestors. Her dam, Bint Magidaa, established one of the greatest stallion-producing lines in the entire Arabian horse world. Miss Maggie Mae carried on that tradition as the dam of international champion stallions who are now themselves the sires of winning foals. Her daughters are just as impressive.
Miss Maggie Mae’s Foals:
Although Miss Maggie May has passed, she is expected to have three foals this spring through the advanced on-farm embryo transfer program–all three by Alixir! Her foals have been impressive through the years, and we are eagerly awaiting the new arrivals!

The last gift of Miss Maggie Mae is this beautiful filly, born through the embryo transfer program here at the farm. She will carry on her dam’s legacy for her owners, Judy Sirbasku & Mark and Nancy Ness.
