Two early babies!

Contrary Mary 10hh bay filly  - FFCh Foolhardy x Ch Mary Hill. Full sister to GCh. Fool on the Hill. Looking forward to seeing if she'll do as well as her sister.

Azurite 8.2hh Blue Roan colt - WCh Strider x Ch Sienna. Sienna's first foal. She was a dirt and classic distance racer and his sire favored the same so I'm hoping for a good mid distance prospect with this one.

At Last!!!!
Wild Irish Rose has presented us with a tiny 8.3hh filly foal Wild Irish Cherry by FFCh Black Cherry. Only 30 days late  :) She was due at the end of last year so I was expecting a monster foal but clearly first time broodies can be unpredictable.

Congrats on the foal! She wasn't a maiden mare, but one of my girls kept her legs crossed almost 3 weeks and has produced the smallest foal so far for me. Tricky, tricky ladies.

Can't beieve how long it's been since I last posted! since then there have been eight more babies  :)

Call of the Sea 10.1 Bay colt. ICh.Gunningdownromance x Ch.Sailor's Magic. Sailors magic's second foal, both colts.

Citizen 11.0 Bay filly  ICh. City Upon a Hill x Ch. Must Be Patient. Must be Patient's first foal. Can't wait to see of she does as well as her dam and grand dam.

Elfwood  9.0 Liver Chestnut colt NCh. Run Jenny Run x Ch.Elfstone. Second foal from MSW mare.

Enigmatic 9.3 dark grey filly.  NCh. Cryptic Ballad x Ch. Sunday Star

Last Highlander  9.3 Grey filly. ICh. Candidate x Wild Highland. This is Wild Highland's final foal. At 19 years old and with 14 foals we decided it was time to retire her. An unspectacular racer herself she has produced 6 x SW, of which 3 x MSW and 1 millionaire. Here's hoping this last one will continue her legacy.

Sleepy Sundays 9.1 dark bay Colt.   NCh. Sunday Paper x Ch. Dream Alone. 3rd foal from MSW dam.

Stepping Out 8.3 Strawberry Roan Filly. WCh. Strider x NCh. Best Queen. fourth foal for MSW dam.She looks almost exactly like her sire so perhaps she may have a similarly successful career.

Sunday Afternoon. Dark bay Colt  NCh. Sunday Paper x Ch. Beyond Time. Dam is SW, MSP and an SC specialist as was her sire. Should get a solid steeplechaser in a few years.

12 more to go!

Two more!

Bay Runner  Pretty little 9.0hh Blue Roan filly. NCh. Run Jenny Run x Ch. Legally Bay. Hoping for a turf runner with this one. Legally bay will visit Bear Witness for her next foal.

China Roses 9.0hh liver chestnut filly.  GCh. Tottenham Hotspur x Ch. Undebatable. 7th living foal for gold ranked SW/MSP dam. Her 2yo foal Thistledown ran a strong second in her only outing to date. Hoping this one will maintain the family tradition.

The last babies have put in an appearance and they're all girls!!

Heart Shaped Stars 9.0hh chestnut filly  by    Sea the Stars x Heart Shaped Box

Mirrie Dancer   9.1 bay filly by Animal Kingdom x London Fog Mirrie dancers is the Shetland name for the northern lights. I was in shetland a couple of weeks ago and found a chocolatier making chocolates with the same name. The chocolates were delicious!

Out of the West 9.0hh chestnut filly by Curlin x Lily Of The West

Princess Arachnia a tiny 8.0hh black filly by    ICh. Sleipnir x Ch. Princess Grace. Name inspired by her sire, the 8 legged mythical Norse stallion Sleipnir. In iceland I visited a horseshoe shaped canyon that was said to have been created when Sleipnir touched the ground with his hoof.
