First foals in a while here.

My New Orleans self is sad over the cancellation of Mardi Gras (it’s necessary but I’m still sad[I HATE COVID]), so here’s to King Cake and to Shelbie for the suggestion. Cannot believe we didn’t come up with it ourselves. I’m just not myself right now lol

Love the names! (as you know).

Love the names, being a Native Louisianan I am also sad over Mardi Gras. It will be back next year just as big and just as loud.

Some years are worse than others. A good while back I had only 20 broodmares and had 5 stillborns!

Lovely foals!

The fact I’ve only had 1 stillborn so far is a big improvement over last year. I feel by February 2024 I had already lost 2 mares.
