1/2 brother to [color=red]GCh. Wiry Feeling[/color]. Assessment is what a permaculture designer does before starting the design work. Wiry Feeling was our best mare last year, I hope she’ll also earn a NCh title before retiring, and this looks like a strong female line in my herd.
I already bred Enyo to her next date, Worthy Victor, and for some reason the foal appears due in December 2024… is that a bug, @Shanthi?
Nope. If you bred on Feb 15 the vet could determine that the mare is due in December. (The code mimics real-life practices of “encouraging” mares to hold off until Jan 1, though, so even if she would naturally foal in December she’s more likely to foal on Jan 1.)
3/4 brother to [color=blue]Ch. Scion[/color]. Fourth colt by our recently retired Al, and third foal for our millionaire mare. Her first born filly has quite a lot to grow, although she was born on January 1st, so we’re not starting her training yet. Winter Queen will be bred to Space Chips.
1/2 brother to [color=green] Don Galante[/color]. I was supposed to give them some permaculture-related names, but a horse named Glomalin wouldn’t sound sexy… right? Private Party was one of my first stakes level racehorses. Later I sold her, and bought her back. I guess it’s time to sell her again… so I’m putting her up for an auction. I will just wait until Ch. Sirona and I’m No Mystery drop their foals, because they will be auctioned too.
1/2 brother to [color=red] Just A Girl[/color]. Sixth foal for dam (she had one stillborn), but first at Clicker Lab. I bought her at the 2022 Annual Select Auction, in foal to Deep Impact, but the foal didn’t make it. Blue Rabbit will be bred to Space Chips.
Finally permaculture-related name! Keyline design is something developed in Australia in order to maximize the benefits of water resources on land, and redirect the flow to prevent floods and droughts. Australia should perhaps apply it more widely, to stop these fires!
Pinoit is now retired.
This colt is 3x4 inbred to Rainbow Quest, 4x4 to What’s It Worth, 5x4x4 to Highland Rogue, and 3x4 to Great Things, a gold ranked broodmare. That’s a lot of inbreeding
Mulching is a technique of adding lots of organic matter to soil, to prevent water loss and to enrich it. Ruth Stout, American author and gardener, was best known for this. She used to say that adding more mulch can solve all gardening problems.
15 Colts | 6 Fillies
The auction starts on Feb. 10th, there are three open broodmares and three 2yo’s. The highlight is Ängi, the first daughter of my amazing Millionaire mare, NCh. Winter Queen. Elfriede is also a very nice filly, out of gold ranked dam, and sired by our recently retired stallion Al Mundhir.
