We had our first arrival on January 7th, a few days before she was due. Both mom and baby are fine. With one on the ground, we have 8 still due, which will be our biggest crop ever.
Tiznow x Strike Out West (Red Sunset)
Dark Grey w/lots of chrome
8.1h (so tiny!)
[color=red]1 filly | [color=blue]0 colts | 8 still due
Nice name Congrats ona healthy baby.
What a pretty filly! I love the name.
Second healthy foal (despite being super early) of the year is:
WCh. Double Cross x Slew the Night (NCh. Diplomat)
Black w/lots of chrome
I hope the stable by the same name doesn’t mind. The name just popped into my head while I was studying his pedigree. It’s a cross that’s worked really well for me before, though I bought Slew the Night already in foal. I’m thinking the Cross Roads x Seattle Slew line might be onto something? (Two stakes placers, one on the rise in my own barn…)
[color=red]1 filly | [color=blue]1 colt | 7 still due
We’re so excited to announce the new addition to the foal barn! She is:
[color=red]Casting Call (name may change)
NCh. Mr. Prospective x Star of the Show (created)
Dark bay w/a bit of white
She’s the first foal from our in-house stallion. Can’t wait to see how she does!
[color=red]2 fillies | [color=blue]1 colt | 6 still due
Had one other born on 2/1 and one stillborn.
NCh. Mr. Prospective x Quiet Silhouette (created)
Dark bay w/bald face, RH ermine
Quiet Silhouette was returned to her new owner at the end of her lease.
The stillborn was a colt from a Holy Bull x Roses on Sunday (Sunday Silence) cross. Roses on Sunday has been sent back to Holy Bull for another try.
[color=red]2 fillies | [color=blue]2 colts | 4 still due (one create) | 1 deceased
Love the name!
Good luck with the second Holy Bull breeding.
Your names are all pretty much amazing.
Sorry to hear about the stilbirth, though… Best luck with the second attempt!
Thanks so much!
Even if the cross doesn’t work, I’m excited about it just for the legendary names, ha.
Had one of our more anticipated foals born early this morning. He is:
Yay for a pony with a Welsh name
Had another filly, born yesterday.
ICh. Unabridged x Canyoutopthis (created)
Grey w/star, snip, LF ermine, RH ermine, LH sock
I was trying for a play on her parents’ names and ended up with a play on the fact that she’s the first live foal of both.
[color=red]4 fillies | [color=blue]3 colts | 2 still due (+1 create) | [i]1 stillborn[/1]
What a lovely little girl! I’m so happy to see Bridge’s first healthy baby. Good luck with her!
