When the cold winter 2003 Janow mares foals were waiting in quiet, swathed in snow comforter stables, far California ended grandfather and great-grandfather life many of them - Probat memorable. Thanks to him, a great source of Kuhailan Afas db Poland experienced a period of great prosperity.
Kuhailan Afas db was imported from Bahrain in 1931 by Bohdan Ziętarskiego, head of studs in Gumniska, belonging to Prince Roman Sanguszko. Purchased as a yearling together with seven other horses, arrived in Europe in the last,, imports to Europe of the original Arabs of the desert '. In Gumniska left only seven foals. Lost in the tragic 1939.
With two sons Kuhailan Afas included for breeding, after the war among the extended Bad Afas. His phenomenal grandson, the son of Janów Carmen - Comet stallion born in New Manor, a favorite director stud, Joseph Tyszkowski, considered by many as the greatest stallion breeders bred in Poland after the Second World War, has left a beautiful mare 50 - Precious emanating femininity and charm . He gave a 26 stallions, of which as many as 24 were sold abroad, expecting better from his father's son. Unfortunately, Comet died prematurely at the age of just 11 years old, and his sons from among the five used in Poland, none brought up a successor. Breeders were faced with the vision of the expiry of the family.

One of the sons sold abroad Comet was Michałów-bred Pohaniec. In 1970 he went to stud Blommeröd in Sweden. In his new homeland has won the title of Champion of Sweden (1972), Champion of Europe (1976) and Best Stallion of the Year (1977). In 1979, the Head of the Department of Horse Breeding, the late Mr. Adam Sosnowski Blommeröd visited to investigate the possibility of leasing the Pohańca by Polish stud, to save the family Kuhailan db Afas Unfortunately, the prospects for such it was not because the recurring lameness virtually excluded from breeding stallion. Fortunately, Mr. Sosnowski spotted in the stable of young, inconspicuous yet, a bay son Pohańca. He was just Probat.
Very typical, with a beautiful head with a broad forehead and huge eyes, with a long, nicely shaped neck stood out Probat nearly perfect calibration log positioning the top line. This legendary log Borexia inherited from his mother, Champ Sweden, called the Queen Blommeröd,, '', born of Polish parents - after Janowski Exelsjorze from Albigowa Bogoria.

Offspring that were born after it was so good that in 1986 reiterated the lease and Probat Michałowa arrived a year later Janow. Left more than 160 foals.

The decision to use Fawor was almost obvious to Janow breeders who have previously complied with more than 60 highly successful foals from his father. Already in the first vintage Probat mares gave so deserved as:

The value of Probat knew perfectly well not only Polish breeders. She could not get enough of it,, '' family Sweden, already in 1988, the famous American horse Lasma Arabians bought it for the staggering price of more than three million US dollars (according to various sources: 3.5 or 3.6 million). In the US stallion changed ownership twice - first went to Meadow Wood Farm, and the last years of his life were spent in Sherwood Forest Farm in California.
Probat has long suffered from osteoarthritis, lie down more often finding it increasingly difficult to get up. The owner provided him with loving care. In the end, however, he had to make the difficult decision to put the stallion. Probat passed away January 15, 2003 at the age of 28 years.
