Darkwood 2021 Foals
« on: January 01, 2017, 12:58:16 pm »
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.

Now an Early Bird!
Lady Hamilton 8.1h grey filly by NCh Lord Nelson x Ch Highland Joy. I'm especially pleased with the safe arrival of this filly as her full sister was stillborn last year

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!
