We had two New Year's surprises. Sadly one didn't make it :(

After two healthy foals, Bellicose gave birth to a very small underdeveloped colt. He sadly never drew a breath. She'll most likely be sent back to Simply Heroic, hopefully for a healthy 2016 foal.

Secret Song on the other hand gave birth to a big healthy colt.

Secret Scrawl
Doodles x Secret Song (Secretariat)
2015 Colt
10 Hands
Liver Chestnut
He's the very first colt by Doodles. Looks like he is going to be big since both his parents are 17 + hands.

Thanks guys. I was sad to loose the colt but at least it wasn't one of my older mares.

So sorry for your loss, always terrible to find out they didn't make it. I'm always holding my breath when I see the new foal announcement.

Our second foal was born early this morning. We wanted to say thank you to Battle Hill Farm for leasing us Power Play and we're very excited to own her first foal.

Still waiting on our first filly!

Rapparee
Highway Bandit (S) x Hey Toots (S)
2015 Colt
8.1 hands
Dark Bay

We decided to go with a bandit themed name for this little guy. A rapparee is an Irish highwayman/bandit and we liked the sound of it. We're excited to see how he does on the track. Now we just need to decide where to send Hey Toots for her 2016 foalie.

Nice colt! I like Hey Toots - I have two of her daughters Reveille and Dancing Girl. Both were reasonable runners so hoping they throw some nice foals!

Thanks guys :) Good luck with your Hey Toots fillies Jason. It's too bad there's no Man O' War sons standing at stud she or her daughters can be bred to since that is who she crossed best with.

Well, so far this is a boys only party, but it would be so much funner with some girls  :P 

Pharaoh's Curse
Akhetnaten (S) x Mystic Song
2015 Colt

This little guy is pretty cute. I'm a sucker for bays with stripes or blazes. He's my first Akhetnaten baby, and I'm pretty high on this stallion right now, so can't wait for this colt to get to the track!

We finally got our first filly of the year and she's darling!

Page Six
Rumor Has It x Rosie Riveter
2015 Filly
8.3 Hands
Bay

She is our second Rumor Has It foal. We named her after the gossip column in the New York Post.

Thanks Holly!

Well  we're getting our girls in bunches it seems. We have two more beautiful fillys as of this morning. Introducing -

After The Rain
Crystal Rainbow x Glorified (Lonesome Glory)
2015 Filly
7.2 hands
I really need to start writing down expected due dates because I'm not sure if Glorified gave birth early or not. Either way, this girl is tiny! This is Glorified's third foal, although none have raced yet so I'm still not sure what to expect. Hopefully she'll follow her full sister, NCH Camelot's example, and give me a MSW *crossing my fingers*

Midsummer Dream
My Lucky Day x Summer Day (Kentucky Summer)
2015 Filly
9.2 Hands
This filly is nice and healthy and I had to take the opportunity to name her after one of my favorite Shakespeare plays. Summer Day is another unproven producer. She didn't do much on the track but I like her relatively obscure bloodlines. Summer Day is also a half sister to Fleeting Beauty who is a gold producer with 3 MSW out of 6 racers. Again hoping for similar success (one can hope lol)!

Well after the boys jumped out to a quick lead we're now all tied up with 4 colts and 4 fillies.

Office Affair
Secretary x Somebodylovesme
2015 Filly
8.2 hands
This filly's name was inspired by one of my favorite TV shows, Mad Men, and it seemed to tie in nicely with Mom and Dad. This is our first foal by Secretary, and is Somebodylovesme's second baby. She is a create who did decently on the track and who I probably retired a bit too early, but hopefully she'll produce some nice runners.

Well we had a bit of a baby lull for awhile and lost one along the way, but we got a healthy big filly tonight who is one of Rahy's last babies. We're very excited to have her.

A Guiding Star
Rahy x December Lights (Boldness Shows)
2015 Filly
10.0 Hands
Bay
4 left to go!

Oh and if anyone has any suggestions/shameless plugs for a stallion I could breed December Lights to, I'd love to hear them. Thanks!

Our first ever broodmare gave birth to a healthy colt last night.

Grand Slam Bite The Bullet
Secretary x Shameka
2015 Colt
8.2 hands
Light Bay
Since baseball season is starting I felt this name was appropriate although I was surprised it wasn't taken! Mom will be sent to Doodles for her 2016 foal.

Sorry, but Grand Slam was a (real) stakes winning racehorse, so the name isn't allowed. Cute colt, though. :)

Our last two mares finally foaled. They were both early and we had a scare thinking both foals were stillborn. Luckily one pulled through and one healthy foal is certainly better than loosing two. Sadly Harvest Moon lost her Point Given baby. She's being sent to Carrowmore and were very excited about that cross.

Our other mare Derby Appeal gave birth to a Ring of Fire colt. This was our second time breeding her to Ring Of Fire as her 2014 colt by him didn't make it. We're happy (and quite relieved) to finally introduce:

Streets Of Laredo
Ring of Fire x Derby Appeal
2015 Colt
Black
8.1 Hands

Derby Appeal will be sent to V is for Victory for 2016.
