It is a sad day at Battle Hill today...

Deputy Miss delivered a stillborn filly this morning... she was 6 days late and this being her first foal we weren't worried...

The vet has checked Deputy Miss out and has given her a clean bill of health... she will visit War Chant for her 2014 foal... and hopefully deliver a live healthy foal...

1 Filly / 2 Colts / 1 Stillborn... 29 left to Foal...

Sorry to hear of your lost foal, sad and disappointing after waiting so long.
But happy to see your latest foal is happy and healthy, hope all the others are the same  :)

This morning has been a long battle...

on our midnight rounds, we noticed Reine-de-Course mare Take Account thrashing in her stall... she was in hard labor and the foal was presenting backwards... an emergency call to the vet and 4 hours later... we had a wonderful little filly... Take Account is 17 this year and has produced 10 live foals... it was decided to retire her from brood duty so she can hang out and enjoy the rest of her life at Battle Hill...

So let me introduce you to Take Account's last foal...

Semi-Charmed
Blood Bay - Filly - 9.2h - Star, snip, RF Blaze, LF Ermine, RH Ermine, LH Ermine
Sired by: Ch. Irish River (S)
Out of: Take Account (G) Reine-de-Course (I)

Charmed is what this young lady is... coming into the world backwards and a wopping 9.2h... We are very excited to have this Ch. Irish River filly in our barn... and can hardly wait for her to hit the track in 2015...

2 Fillies / 3 Colts / 1 Stillborn / 1 Broodmare Retired... 29 left to Foal...

Congrats on a healthy baby.  Hopefully she'll do her (gorgeous) bloodlines justice.

I hope Take Account has a long retirement, it's well-deserved.

We woke to a new baby in the foaling barn today...

Saint Moritz
Dark Bay - Colt - 8.2h - Blaze, LF Coronet, RH Sock, LH Ermine
Sired by: A.P. Indy (G)
Out of: Savethelastdance (What's It Worth (G))

Dance is the first Worth daughter I was fortunate enough to buy... this is her first foal... and I wanted something other than a Rouge bred stallion to cross on her... Who better than A.P. Indy? I'm excited about this colt... can't wait to see him on the track in 2015!! Savethelastdance will visit Holy Bull for her 2014 foal...

2 Fillies / 4 Colts / 1 Stillborn / 1 Broodmare Retired... 28 left to Foal...

Two more foals arrived early this morning... and neither were the one we've been waiting on...

Hero Complex
Dark Bay - Colt - 8.3h - RH Coronet, LH Ermine
Sired By: ICh. Magic Glory
Out of: Ancient Honour

The name comes form Glory & Honour... thus Hero Complex...  ;D Magic Glory's first foals will hit the track this spring... and this is Ancient Honour's first foal... We're not sure how this boy will run... he may be for sale later this year... Ancient Honour will be bred to Battle Hill's Ch. Turn n'Burn for her 2014 foal...

Celtic Hymn
Liver Chestnut - Filly - 8.0h - Snip, RF Ermine, RH Ermine, LH Ermine
Sired by: FFCh. High Chances
Out of: Ch. Hermione

Hymn is a lovely filly... we are so excited about her... she's part of FFCh. High Chances 2nd foal crop... his race record is incredible... she is Ch. Hermione's second foal... and second filly... Hermione was one of my starter horses... and was a little fickled on the track... but was quite good at the allowance level... I'm expecting really nice things from this filly... Ch. Hermione will visit GCh. Highland Laird for her 2014 foal...

3 Fillies / 5 Colts / 1 Stillborn / 1 Broodmare Retired... 26 left to Foal...
