Doing the early morning rounds of the foaling barn brought us our extremely overdue baby...

Celtic Elegance
Strawberry Roan - Filly - 10.1H - Blaze, RH Sock, LH Coronet
Sired by: NCh. Highland Wizard (G)
Out of: Swing Vote (NCh. Hope To Succeed (S)

We were beging to get concerned about Swing Vote holding onto her foal for three extra weeks... being a maiden mare... When Elegance finally arrived and she is huge! standing a full 2 hands taller than our first foal of the season... She's already very bold and I love her color... Sired by Gold Ranked NCh. Highland Wizard... she is Swing Vote's first foal... I have big expcetation of this filly... can't wait to see her on the track... Swing Vot is headed to Shadowbrook Farm on lease for 2014...

Another baby decide to visit us this morning...

Caribbean Cartel
Grey - Colt - 10.2h - Star, stripe, snip, RH Ermine, LH Sock
Sired by: GCh. Jazz It Up (S)
Out of: Ch. Calypso (G)

We bought Calypso at the recent Storybook Dispersal Sale... she was very heavy in foal and we worried about shipping her home... but she made the trip fine and foaled out just a few days early... and it's a good thing, this boy is huge! Calypso was MSP before she was retired to brood... Cartel is 1/2 to MSW GCh. Temptation (retired), NCh. Unfaltering (retired) and SP Tsunami... I'm looking forward to seeing this boy run... Ch. Calypso is visiting newly retired WCh. All Jazzed Up for a 3/4 sibling to Cartel for 2014...

This morning we discovered a new baby during morning feeding...

Oceanus
Dark Bay - -Colt - 9.0h - Star, snip, RF Sock, LF Blaze, RH Ermine, LH Sock
Sired by: WCh. King David
Out of: Ch. Set Sail (G) (Land Ho (S)

This baby is part of our Color War prize... we picked Ch. Set Sail in foal to WCh. King David... King David's first foals will hit the track this spring... Ch. Set Sail was a MW on the track but her real talent lies in the broodband...Oceanus is 1/2 to MSW NCh. Set The Sails and SW Khepri... I'm looking for some really big things from this colt... Ch Set Sail will be visiting NCh. Bellagio for her 2014 foal...

As for his name I was looking for something related to water and from Greek Mythology found this;
Oceanus is the unending stream of water encircling the world. Together with his wife Tethys produced the rivers and the three thousand ocean nymphs.

I had to dash to school this morning... and was not able to check the foaling barn... when I got an excited call from the stable lad for the brood barn... I Put A Spell On U was spraying milk with every turn of the stall she made... and was not at all interested in her morning feed... A quick look at the teacher (who understood what was going on) sent me flying from class and racing to the barn... by the time I got there it was all over but the shouting! Let me introduce you to our new boy...

U Remind Me
Black - Colt- 9.2h - Star, stripe, snip, RF Ermine, RH Ermine, LH Ermine
Sired by: FFCh. TakeMeToHollywood
Out of: I Put A Spell On U

We recently bought I Put A Spell On U in foal to TakeMeToHollywood form Ivy Creek Farm... and were hoping for a filly... but we have one more shot at that filly... I'm not sure what to expect from this colt... but I'm sure he's gonna be a star... I Put a Spell On U will be bred to our own Ch. Turn n'Burn for her 2014 foal...

Yay!  Glad to see he arrived safe & sound for ya.   :)

Figures that he's black, though.  Most of my babies have been this year.   ::)  So much for my theory of trying to breed for several color options in addition to talent so I would have no idea what to expect...

I woke to the terrible screams of our stable lad... and it was coming from the brood barn... I hurridly threw on my coat over my pajamas (who has time to dress?)... and when I arrived at the brood barn I noticed our trainer and two other stable lads standing just outside Devil's Lace's stall... and there was wimpring comeing from inside the stall... as I ran up I was asking what was going on? Jason (the trainer)... was smiling from ear to ear and said "the lad thought he was going to get a hand on Lacy's new baby"... Wonderful... this is Lacy's first foal and she's proving to be a typical Devil's Bag daughter... over protective of her babies... peeking in I seen the lad in a corner rolled up in a ball and Lacy standing over him... while the new baby peeked at him from behind mommy... I spoke softly to the mare and caught her attention... and slipped into the stall and got a halter on her... the lad had learned a valuable lesson... don't mess with maiden mares without a support team behind you... anyway let me introduce our newest baby...

Premium Lace
Liver Chestnut - Filly - 8.1h - Star, snip, RH Ermine, LH Ermine
Sired by: Ch. Irish River (S)
Out of: Devil's Lace

This is Devil's Lace first foal... so I'm not sure what to expect from her on the track... Devil's Lace will visit ICh. Magic Glory for her 2014 foal...
