All June babies officially accounted for! Just down to two overdue May foals and 7 due in July and that will wrap up the 2023 foaling season for us. Most of our June/July foaling mares will not be bred for 2024, as I’d like to “reset” their foaling dates. Not like I’m in desperate need of foals, anyways.
