Ivy Creek Farm's 2023 Foal Crop

Our year started out with a whirlwind of activity, so I’m still playing catchup and planning out our mare bookings (and have marked our stallions as private until that has been sorted out). Here’s the list of new arrivals to date, though!

January 1st:

NCh. Exit Poll x GCh. Allnighter II - WCh. All Jazzed Up
8.3h grey filly

NCh. Bellagio (S) x Ch. Worth A Treasure - GCh. Worth My While (G)
8.3h bay filly

NCh. Fight The Twilight x Ch. Ciao Bella (S) - ICh. Alley Cat (S)
7.1h bay colt

Honestly…I swapped Ciao Bella’s booking around at the last minute and didn’t pay enough attention. This colt’s sire & dam are half siblings which makes me worry, but since it’s a game, here’s hoping he inherits the best of both worlds. At least the common ancestor is a platinum-ranked mare. Both mom and dad were stakes winners, and 1/2 sister, Adios Amiga, is a stakes winner.

NCh. Fight The Twilight x Stormchaser - FFCh. Foolhardy (S)
9.1h dark bay filly

First foal from this SP mare.

NCh. Fight The Twilight x Ch. Walking On Air - WCh. Express Yourself
7.3h bay filly

First foal from this MSW millionaire mare.

January 2nd:

NCh. Exit Poll x GCh. Coquette - NCh. Bellagio
9.0h dark bay colt

January 3rd:

[color=red]HONEST I SWEAR[/color]

[color=BLUE]JOUANT DU LUTH[/color]
GCh. Zadar x Claire de Lune (S) - GCh. Highland Laird (S)

His name is from part of the poem, Clair de Lune, and means “playing the lute”.

[color=red]WITNESS PROTECTION[/color]
NCh. Bear Witness x Madame Justice (S) - Lit de Justice (S)
9.3h dapple grey filly

1/2 sister to SP [color=red]Madame Bovary[/color]

January 5th:

Calais was technically the brother to Khione in mythology, but I love the name. He’s the first foal from this MSW mare.

Also, to anyone interested in booking to one of my stallions, I have finally finished plotting out my bookings. All available slots have now been made available to the public.
