Love the name! What's Your Point ran his best as a 4yo (though he had a decent 3yo year) so I wouldn't be surprised if his foals are late bloomers.

Secret Garden (ICH. Sixth Day x Quiet Silhouette).
7.3hh chestnut filly
We nearly had a heart attack when Quiet Silhouette went into labor, as seeing she wasn't due until February 4th, but both mommy and baby are fine! The resulting foal is a tiny thing, as you can see, but she should grow! She's the first filly out of her dam and a half-brother to Vassago, who had a light but very successful 2yo season last year (never worse than 3rd in 4 starts). This is also our first foal out of Quiet Silhouette.
Quiet Silhouette has been bred to Express Yourself for 2017.

On one hand, three of our girls uncrossed their legs! On the other hand, none were due for another week, which means our late ladies will continue to drive us batty with the wait.

More fillies!

Loviisa (ICH. Take Me Away x Von Hollywood, by Planet Hollywood).
8.3hh bay filly
We're not up to five mares late, as those not expected for days are pushing out the kids. Von Hollywood wasn't due for another week, but she foaled just fine. Loviisa is her third foal, and we're really excited about a Cigar/Planet Hollywood cross. Loviisa is Finnish for "famous warrior."
Von Hollywood will be put up for lease for 2017.

Black Storm was overjoyed to welcome three new foals into the world. Unfortunately, Star Shower went into labor nearly a week early and experienced complications. Although mommy is well and just tired, the foal could not be saved. Star Shower was already slated for our planned March broodmare auction and will be heading that direction and go unbred.

Order of the Rose (ICh. Gilded Saint x Glitter Rose).
9.0hh dark bay colt
Beyond missing a star and having a tiny ermine on his right hind leg, he is almost the spitting image of mom! Order of the Rose is Glitter Rose's third foal, and our only Gilded Saint foal. His sire's massive, and his already-large size gives us high hopes.
Glitter Rose has been put up for lease for 2017.

Lillyofthevalley (ICh. Stressed x Ch. My Lady's Princess, by ICh. Worth the Wait).
8.1hh bay filly
This is My Lady's Princess' second foal. We're excited to see how a Secretariat/Worth the Wait cross will work, plus My Lady's Princess is out of the gold-rated dam First Lady, making her half to NCh. Government Secret.
My Lady's Princess will be bred to As You Wish for 2017.

5 colts | 8 fillies | 2 stillborn | 31 to go

We now have seven late mares  :o

Sorry about your foal. :(

Congrats on the other two, though, they look nice!

St. George's Cross (Blue Ensign x Ch. Synbound).
9.2hh blue roan colt
Synbound was a good lady and foaled right on time! This is her first foal and he's a big one (no doubt taking after his mom). Blue Ensign has done fairly well as a sire and Synbound, although lightly raced, did pretty well, so we're hoping Georgie lives up to his parents. Yay colts!
Synbound will be bred to Silver Wizard for 2017.
