Coleman Branch 2021 Foals
« on: January 01, 2017, 06:10:03 pm »
Well, unfortunately, we had one kiddo show up a day early.

Hunter's Moon
ICh. To Die For x GCh. Moon Eclipse (created)
8.3h Dark Bay

Both parents were champions on dirt, which the barn is short on to date.  Moon Eclipse's first foal will run this year.  This girl won't start until 2023.


Three babies arrived this morning:

Desert Rose
American Pharoah x Ch. Rose Will Do (NCh. Those Will Do)
8.2h Dark Grey

Little lady is the first foal on the ground for Pharoah and third for her mom.  Mom's first kid starts this year.


Hack Line
Curlin x Ch. Go For Broke (Ch. Moonopoly)
8.0h Grey Colt

Hopefully another dirt specialist.  Go For Broke's first foal to survive.  His name is from the curling terminology list.


Stealth Bomber
NCh. AndLikeThatHesGone x Silent Turn (Ch. Turn n'Burn)
8.0h Black Colt

This boy should be a jumper.  Mom's first foal (by WCh. Express Yourself) is SW/MSP, which hopefully is an indicator of what she can throw. 


2 colts | 2 fillies | 63 foals due

The fillies are on a roll. 

Moon Letters
Dunaden x Moonlight Sonnet (Twin Oaks)
8.2h Dark Bay Filly

Mom's first foal (a colt by Demand the Best) is a winner.  Her name is a reference to the runes used by the dwarves in The Hobbit (on Thorin's map).

Latest arrival:

Sleeping Beauty
ICh. Gilded Saint x So She Sleeps (GCh. Must Be Magic)
9.3h Dark Grey Filly

Our largest foal of the year (so far).  This is So She Sleeps's first foal.  Planning to start her over the jumps when she's 3.


Yesterday, we lost a colt (Blame x Sorcha - Irish River).  Sorcha has visited Frosted, but will likely return to Blame for next year if he's still on the roster.

2 colts | 4 fillies | 1 stillborn | 60 due

They're showing up in ones and then groups by day, seems like.

RockyRoadToDublin
NCh. Irish Gold x Ch. Tothemoonandback (created)
10.0h Mahogany Bay Colt

He's Tothemoonandback's second foal.  Couldn't resist his name, since I'll be traveling that road myself come March - only I doubt it'll be so rocky these days.  Rocky arrived yesterday.

Today's babies:

Lagertha
NCh. Glorious Victory x Ch. Highland Maiden (ICh. Highland Pride)
9.3h Grey Filly

Loving all these greys.  The name Shield Maiden was already taken, but Lagertha is both one of my favorite characters from the show Vikings and a warrior of legend.  Mom was MSP and I'm a big fan of Highland Pride anywhere in my barn. 


One More Day
WCh. Drum Major x GCh. Naiad (Ch. Irish River)
8.1h Grey Filly

Again, my initial choice for a name was taken (Sea Shanty), so she got named after an actual Sea Shanty.  Hoping mom and dad's success on the track was passed on to her.


Incantation
NCh. Crafty Magic x Ch. Sunless Seattle (GCh. Backseat Driver)
10.0h Black Colt

This one was kind of a random breeding, but he'll hopefully do well on turf.  Both of mom's foals to race are winners.  She is up for lease for $5,000. 


4 colts | 6 fillies | 1 stillborn | 56 due

Love the name RockyRoadtoDublin (and the song). We're Dublin(ish) bound this year as well.

Two more arrivals since the last update (with one mare now 17 days overdue):

Editorial
NCh. Sunday Paper x Ch. Indy's Kitty (A.P. Indy)
9.0h Flea-bitten Grey Colt

First foal from mom, who was MSW/MSP over jumps. 


Worth The Fight
ICh. Gunningdownromance x Ch. Highland Glory (ICh. Highland Pride)
8.0h Bay Colt

Fifth foal from SW/MSP mom, whose babies are mostly untested.  Accidentally linebred to What It's Worth because I wasn't paying attention when I bred mom to dad.  Oops. 

6 colts | 6 fillies | 1 stillborn | 54 due

Two truly homebred babies arrived over this last week.  Figured I'd post them now, before the major influx of February foals. 

Asphodel
NCh. Pay the Boatman x Valyntine (ICh. Alley Cat)
9.2h Bay Filly

Fourth foal from mom, but first with us.


Acheron
NCh. Pay the Boatman x Ch. Diamonora (created)
9.1h Dark Bay Colt

Third foal from mom, second with us.  Her '17 filly hasn't raced, so she's still an unknown quantity.

7 colts | 7 fillies | 1 stillborn | 52 due (1 now 26 days overdue)
