I knew those names sounded familiar somehow. :)

Lovely babies.
Title: Re: Generous' foals 2021
Post by: imagine on April 05, 2017, 03:06:53 PM
Bit behind in updating babies - names still subject to change for the majority and there's still two to be named who I'll add in at a later date.

April Showers (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=37669)
Lasting Spirit x Raining on Parade (Gimmie A Shot).
Dapple grey filly, born March 10. First foal for MW, MP Dam who's career on the track wasn't much to write home about but she's a half-sister to NCh Queen, GCh Galaxy's Zodiac and Ch Moonopoly.

Black Forest (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=37718)
Black Cherry x GCh Sekhmet (Alley Cat)
Black Filly, born March 22. First foal for MSW dam.

Butty Bach (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=38639)
Lasting Spirit x Beer Barrel (create)
Strawberry roan colt, born March 7. Eighth foal for MSW dam. Half to GCh War Chest. Named for a beer brewed locally in Herefordshire - my partner says it's Welsh for 'Little Friend' although I'm not convinced (I went to school in North Wales and have never heard the term 'butty' other than when talking about a sandwich with chips (fries) in it! - 'bach' does mean small/little so maybe there's something in it).

Cosset (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=39041)
Lasting Spirit x Mollycoddle (Giant's Causeway)
Bay filly, born March 3. Fourth living foal for MW, MP dam. Eldest half-sibling is MSP.

Entrancing (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=40058)
Sponsored x GCh Engaging (created)
Dark grey filly, born March 15. Seventh foal for MSW dam - four foals to race (three winners, one placed).

Roaring Water (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=37786)
Black Cherry x Silk Cut (Irish River)
Blood bay colt, born March 11. Second foal for MSW dam. Named after Roaring Water Bay in Ireland.

Scholar's Mate (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=39097)
Lasting Spirit x Checkmate Debate (What's Debatable)
Bay colt, born April 3. Eigth foal for MW dam. Named after a specific move in the game of chess.

Space Exploration (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=38256)
Fight The Twilight x Impulse Drive (Highland Wizard)
Bay colt, born March 9. Fourth foal for MSP dam (none to race yet) who is half to WCh Sponsored.

Spirited Dancer (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=38582)
Lasting Spirit x GCh Danzintothetop (Strider)
Bay filly, born April 5th. First foal for MSW dam. Bit of an unknown as mum had one start on dirt then was switched to jumps by FF - Spirit is capable of siring horses that run well on dirt e.g. Last For More and Strider as the BM sire would indicate this lady might like the surface. Then again she might lean towards being  jumper.  Looking forward to finding out in a few years time.

Valley of Kings (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=38611)
American Pharoah x I. B. Ready (A. P. Indy)
Bay colt, born March 8. Tenth foal for MSW dam. Of her 7 foals to race, 5 are at least stakes placed (one MSW).
