BORN TOO SOON, as his name implies, arrived on December 20 (beat Vaucluse's JUST CAN'T WAIT by 2 days). He is a brown colt, standing at 8.3h, by GCh. MAJOR'S FLIGHT (S) out of MAGIC CRYSTAL. This is the second foal for Magic Crystal, both of them born this year. Magic Crystal will visit What's Debatable next year and will hopefully learn to keep her legs closed longer next time.

Summary: 1 foaled (1 colt, 0 fillies), 24 foals left for 2016

Well congrats for having the first foal of the 2016 season?

Just think, this bugger will be going strong as a 4yo when everyone else is over the hill. =)

Congrats on the first baby of the year, at least. :)

At least his big sister can show him the ropes.

After a premature start to the 2016 Foaling Season with MAGIC CRYSTAL proving eager to win the race to produce the first foal born for this season by foaling on Dec 20th, 2015 (pity she wasn't as eager to win all of her races as a racehorse), things have settled down pretty well down at the Farm. We welcome the following foals:-

Jan 1st:-
COME ON YOU SPURS
, a chestnut filly, standing at 7.2h, by GCh. TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR out of Ch. COMMEM. This is the first foal for both sire and dam. Commem will re-visit Tottenham Hotspur this year.

Jan 8th:-
MIRACLE FLIGHT
, a grey colt, standing at 10.0h, by GCh. MAJOR'S FLIGHT (S) out of Ch. MIRACULOUS LOVE. This is the second foal for Miraculous Love, who will visit NCh. Black Warrior this year.

Jan 11th:-
WHITE HART LANE
, a bay filly, standing at 9.1h, by GCh. TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR out of Ch. BONNIE BLUE FLAG. This is the first foal for Bonnie Blue Flag, who will visit GCh. Major's Flight (S) this year.

FLAMING TEXT, a chestnut filly, standing at 9.1h, by NCh. GOLDEN TEXT out of FLAMING SILK. This is the third foal for Flaming Silk, whose first foal will hit the tracks this year. She will re-visit Golden Text this year.

GOLDEN GLOBES, a chestnut filly, standing at 9.3h, by NCh. GOLDEN TEXT out of Ch. MISS HOLLYWOOD. This is the first foal for Miss Hollywood, who will visit WCh. What's Debatable (S) this year.

Jan 13th:-
DAMN U AUTOCORRECT
, a chestnut colt, standing at 8.1h, by NCh. GOLDEN TEXT out of WHAT'S THAT ABOUT. This is the fourth foal for What's That About, who will visit NCh. Black Warrior this year. (Damn U Autocorrect is named after a very funny book extolling the "virtues" of the Autocorrect feature that most cell phones have as part of their texting apps - hopefully this doesn't violate any of the naming conventions for FF).

Overall Summary:- 7 foaled (3 colts, 4 fillies), 18 foals left for 2016

It's also a hilarious website (I kill a lot of time with it on slow nights here at work).  Love the names!  Gorgeous foals!

Yeah, my iPad loves to correct me.  I was sending a message to a friend the other day and made a comment about how I was a bit floofier than I wanted to be.  <.<  Especially in the rear area.  So, later, when I was typing out a message for someone else, and said something about school, my iPad autocorrected "school" to "floofybutt."  -.-  How it managed that, I don't know, especially since I only typed the word once, but it did. 

And now...back to the regularly scheduled program of babies.  :P

I never thought of checking for similar names when the code allowed my name. There is an extra "I" in my name. Is that too close to be eligible?

I have noticed that there are other names in the game which are similar to each other, e.g Lady of Honour and Lady of Honor and I remember other names that were close, but agree that this is too confusing. I'll think about a different name for my foal later.

Yes, I try and avoid anything that's off by only a letter or 2. It's really tough to program that in, though, so it's manual checking. (The code treats "dog" as equally different from "dogs" and "ego", and clearly those are big differences.)

Yeah when I had a mare sugar road (I didn't name her) there was/is also a sugar rogue , similar but it was let be due to the second word.
Though I do have an Enter stage right , and I think there's an exit stage right too. :)

I think the rule of thumb is different spellings of the same name = no go.  Rogue and Road are two different things. As are enter and exit, so those two would be okay.

I imagine, Me Too and/or Me Two and/or Me To would not be okay. But maybe Me 2 would be?

Lewis, love the names Cheeky Monkey and Wonder Woman. I'm shocked that there hasn't been one already!

I'd rather avoid anything that has the exact same meaning, just to avoid confusion. The real life Jockey Club also does comparisons on soundex, so if you have drastically different spellings but the name would sound the same, it's a no-go. But that's thanks to the announcer being unable to distinguish between which one they're announcing, which obviously isn't a problem with FF.

I've renamed DoYouBelieveInMagic. His new name is MagicalMysteryTour, an old Beatles song written about 1967 (am I showing my age although I have never been a big Beatles fan?!?).

We have 45 broodmares at the farm, including Ch.

As a result, if everything goes well with the mares and foals, we could have 44 new foals next year.
