We had a busy night, but we have two lovely new foals and proud broodmares to show for it.

La Corriveau
ICH. Devil His Due (GCh. Go For Dash (S) x Ch. Devil's Own (S)) x Morning Deelites (created)
8.3h dark grey (star, stripe, LF coronet, LH sock, RH coronet) filly

Morning Deelites, a created broodmare leased from Ivy Creek Farm, foaled this big, healthy filly by Devil His Due. Devil His Due's first foals to race hit the track next month, so I'll be excited to see what they do! "La Corriveau" is a Canadian ghost story about a beautiful, ruthless women who killed her two husbands and was sentenced to death. After her death, her spirit supposedly haunted a river road until finally being exorcised.

Lion Rampant
NCh. Slew O'Scots (S) (Seattle Slew (S) x WCh. Highland Raven (G)) x Still A Princess (What's It Worth (G) x Dark Princess (B))
8.1h black (star) colt

Our maiden mare, Still A Princess, birthed our first colt of the year last night. The jet black foal is our smallest newborn so far, but he is doing great, and Princess is a wonderful mother who is totally smitten with him. Slew O' Scots has shown himself to be an awesome sire, and we hope the cross with our What's It Worth mare will be a successful one. Lion Rampant, or Leo, is 3/4 to Ch. Outlander and two-year-old Party Doll. The Lion Rampant of Scotland is the Scottish Royal Banner of Arms, used historically by the King of Scots.

1 colt - 4 fillies - 5 remaining

Yay, another colt!

Grimoire
NCh. Silver Wizard (NCh. Highland Wizard (G) x Silver Wind (S)) x Uptown Girl (S) (Created)
9.2h black (LH sock, RH stocking) colt

Uptown Girl, a lease from Ivy Creek Farm, safely delivered this big black colt. Her oldest foal is Ch. Goodnight Saigon, a stakes winning three-year-old, and even though Uptown Girl only started racing in her four-year-old year, she was quite successful on the track herself. Silver Wizard's first crop doesn't hit the track until next year, but I'm excited to see how they do! I'm quite optimistic about this foal's prospects on the track.

His name, Grimoire, is the term for a textbook of magic.

2 colts - 4 fillies - 4 remaining

I am a huge fan of your naming process.  :) 

I'm glad to see that both ladies gave you healthy, promising looking foals.  Who knew that Uptown Girl had it in her to throw a stakes winner?  Here's hoping Grimoire can live up to that precedent - either way, he sure is handsome.  And Morning Deelites has only thrown dark greys, so no surprise that your filly is so striking.  DHD had quite a long career, and was successful as a 2YO - hopefully La Corriveau takes after him in that regard.   :)

Thanks for letting me lease them! I'm really excited for both foals - they're both absolutely perfect.

And on a sad note, I had my first FF-horse death today. Little Nikita, a Government Secret broodmare, passed away due to complications in labor while giving birth to what was only her second foal. She was only six years old and had not had any complications with her pregnancy or her delivery last year, so we're all pretty shocked and heartbroken.

She did leave us one beautiful, healthy colt, however, and fortunately, the little chestnut orphan has taken a liking to our broodmare, Novel Advantage, who couldn't be happier with the situation. She was left open for 2016, and she must have been jealous of all the other mares' foals, because she won't stop doting on "her" colt. He is being bottle fed and seems to be doing well despite the sad start to his life.

Robben Island
ICh. Dark Continent (S) (Land Ho (S) x Dark Victory (P)) x Little Nikita (NCh. Government Secret (B) x Moment in Paradise (B))
8.2h chestnut (star, stripe) colt

Named for the former prison off the coast of Cape Town where Nelson Mandela and other political prisoners were held during apartheid. I am a fan of Dark Continent and am really excited to have another foal by him - Robben Island is a little carbon copy of his sire. I hope he inherited his talent on the track in addition to his appearance!

3 colts - 4 fillies - 1 deceased mare - 3 remaining
One of our maiden mares is almost a week late now, and after this loss, I don't want to leave her alone for even a second. The poor gal is looking very round...

Sorry for your loss, Grace! At least the foal survived; hopefully he kicks some serious butt when he's older.
