2016 Hello Starling Farm Foals
« on: January 06, 2012, 03:41:04 pm »
Our first foal of 2016 was safely delivered last night!

Catalina
ICh. Gilded Saint x Ch. Kilburn Kate
9.3h dark bay (LF ermine, RH ermine, LH sock) filly

Born right on time! This big filly is in Gilded Saint's first crop, and she is the first foal out of her MSP dam, so I am very pleased that both dam and foal are happy and healthy. Out of a maiden mare and by an unproven stallion, I don't really know what to expect from her when she hits the track, but I am hoping that Catalina will mature to be a strong steeplechaser, as both her sire and dam excelled over fences.

0 colts - 1 filly - 9 remaining

Our next little girl showed up at tonight. It claims she is "unborn", but the notification popped up and she's showing up as Genie's "Last Foal", so I'm guessing the delivery is still going on ;)

In Your Dreams
ICh. Almost Precious (Almost Home (S) x Precious Belle (S)) x Dream of Genie (Ch. Magic Cross (S) x Regal Spirit (B))
8.3h bay (Star, Snip, LF Sock) filly

This girl has the sweetest face. She is Genie's second foal, and she is one of the first foals in Almost Precious's first crop. I have another wild card here, but I'm hopeful she'll shape up to be a nice, solid runner.

The name may not stick - we'll see.

0 colts - 2 fillies - 8 remaining

No one is due until March now, so things will be pretty quiet around here for the next few weeks.

Thanks! I just realized she's also the first foal I bred - the rest of mine have all been from mares I've purchased in foal - so that's fun, too. :)

I was surprised, too, Shanthi.

A lot of apparently obvious names are being used this year  :D Great though. Good luck with her, I guess she'll always have place in your heart

I got a leap year baby! :D

Darkling
ICh. Candidate (G) (What's It Worth (G) x Dark Magic (G)) x Blues Baby (GCh. My Lucky Day (S) x Rhythm n' Blues (S))
8.3h grey (LH sock) filly

Blues Baby is a leased maiden mare from Black Storm West. She foaled a few days early, but both mom and baby are happy and healthy. The small grey filly's name was taken from Thomas Hardy's poem, "The Darkling Thrush". I've wanted to find some way to use that name ever since I first read the poem, and I think it suits her nicely.

Blues Baby will go home to Black Storm West after weaning.
