It's been a busy couple of days.

8.2hh Chestnut Colt, foaled May 4th

Black Cherry
FFCh. High Chances x Cherry Flavored
8.2hh Black Colt, foaled May 5th

Woah... The colts have it this year.  We've never had more colts than fillies, and this year it's 2:1 colts, almost!

I hope she's been sent to CDS if she's seeing Devil Hi Due. ;) 

Love Blood Diamond by the way. Very fitting.

Well, we had our first stillborn of the season, which all things considered makes us very lucky.  We lost a cute little filly by ICh. Dark Continent out of Cryptorose.  Cryptorose has been bred to High Chances.  She will be bred back to DC next year.

Breakthrough
FFCh. High Chances x Liquid Gold (G)
8.3hh Bay filly

Liquid Gold has been bred to Dark Continent.

Sorry to hear about Warrens Candy. :(   At least she has a pretty filly to carry on her legacy.

We've been pretty lucky, as this is the first time we've ever lost a broodie (either to retirement or death), and we usually lose only 1 foal per season, so it was bound to happen to us one time or another.  We're sorry we lost her, but we're lucky it was her instead of some of our more distinguished mares.

Last foal of the season.

Gimme A Sign
NCh. Gimme A Shot x Symbolic (S)
8.2hh Black Colt

Symbolic has been bred to Dark Continent for a '14 foal.

Foaling season here at the Hill is DONE!

Stats: 25 foals, 1 stillborn, 1 deceased mare

Of the 25 foals: 10 fillies, 15 colts

For the first time *EVER* in CH breeding history (all six years), the colts have it.  =)  Hopefully this will make them easier to part with...

Oh, man I love the name!  Good job. :)  If next years first foal is a colt I though "Notanothercolt" would be a cute name...lol. ;)

Well, I am responsible for naming one of my fillies, "Not Another Mare."  ;)

We'll give the colts another year to catch up before we start complaining too much about them.  My yearling colts are ecstatic about the reinforcements.   ;D
