Diamond Dale's 2018 Foal Crop
« on: January 02, 2014, 01:14:08 am »
Well, wouldn't know that I just made it-- one girl decided that she had held out long enough and there was a darling baby in my stable when I went to feed in the morning.

Point and Shoot is a newer mare that I've added to my band and was a jumper when she was on the track, having placed in the Hilltop stakes (ungraded) when she was 3 yrs old.  Her current foal is the second foal for Diamond Dale.

So here is her baby boy:

CREATIVE MODE
chestnut colt, 9.1hh, with a RH ermine and LH sock.
By: One Lucky Soul
Out of: Point and Shoot (Point Given)
Born January 1st

Figured I wanted to go with a photography related name for this boy, referring to a mode you would find on a digital camera.

Point and Shoot isn't booked yet as I haven't figured out what boy she will visit.  Will update when I decide that, lol.

So it's been a while but have some new little faces to introduce-- three exactly.  So here's the roll call, starting with the oldest of the three.

- BLESSED B -
black filly, 10.3hh, LH/RH/LF sock
Born Jan 9
Sire: V is for Victory
Dam: Wiccan Moon (Tiznow)

Took me a long while to come with the name for this girl but I like it-- googled Wiccan terms and this one seemed to fit, as well as go with the theme of V is for Victory.  We shall see what this little one can do.  Mom Wiccan probably won't be bred this year, along with all my mares as I am too busy this year to really focus on research of lines.

-ALWAYS COOL-
brown colt, 9.1hh, LF/LH Ermine, RH sock
Born Feb 3
Sire: Black Light II
Dam: Novel Advantage (created)

I like the mare and actually owned her at one point but sadly, needed money, so had to part with her.  When the chance came up to lease her, I did it and got this boy out of the deal.  Excited to see what he will do :)

- LUCKY IN RED -
Red chestnut colt, Star
Born March 20
Sire: One Lucky Soul
Dam: Lady in Red (Crossroads)

Lady is a sentimental favourite of mine.  She is the dam of the first horse I ever owned in the game, so I get excited when she has a baby.  Being silver rated helps too lol ;).  Lucky will be kept to race, while the other foals will be sold at auction

So, that's the babies for now.

Love the names, especially Blessed B...and that she's by my boy is just a bonus! Best of luck with them.
