Sorry for the loss of your mare. Love the name for the colt though :)

Thanks for the condolences, everyone. I know it had to happen eventually. I definitely breathed a sigh of relief when Tell It Straight, my maiden mare who was over a week past her due date, foaled this giant filly with no complications.

Lovingly Yours Coco Chanel
NCh. Black Warrior (What's It Worth (P) x Joey Three Socks (S)) x Tell It Straight (Romeo (G) x Time For Truth (S))
10.0h black (star, stripe, LF stocking, RH stocking, LH sock) filly

Apparently it's my year for black babies - no complaints from me! As long as they're healthy, I'm happy.

Black Warrior's first crop will hit the track in 2017. Tell It Straight was a solid MSP runner with a pretty consistent record (and only 1 point off her champion title). Sire and dam are unproven as producers, but Lovingly Yours' Coco Chanel's pedigree is pretty star-studded in the third generation, so I'm quite hopeful this cross will be successful. Her name is from the closing line of a love letter to a soldier. Renamed her Coco Chanel, credited with the design of the "little black dress".

Tell It Straight is going to I'm A Classic for her next date.

I'm very pleased to welcome my second-to-last foal for the year, a filly out of a lovely leased broodmare.

Judgment Night
NCh. Black Light II (Black Satin (S) x Majestic Light (P)) x Jezabelle (B) (War Admiral (S) x Devil's Trademark (G))
8.1h brown (star, stripe, snip, LF sock, RH sock, LH sock) filly

I was really excited about this pairing when I planned this foal last year, and I'm so happy with the little filly I've gotten out of the cross. Black Light II's first crop will hit the track in 2017. Jezabelle has had one foal to run so far: I'm Your Devil, a nice winning colt by I'm Your Angel. She has a 2-year-old colt by Nightfight scheduled to hit the track next week, so we'll be keeping an eye on War Letters. Jezabelle is owned by Black Storm West, and Judgment Night is her first filly. I'm quite smitten. :)

3 colts - 6 fillies - 1 deceased mare - 1 remaining! (And mama's overdue by a week...)

I just now realized I never introduced my last baby of the year! She was born on April 7 and I had a hard time settling on a name, but I think this one will stick for now. I'm happy to have gotten through my first real foaling season with all ten babies arriving safely, but my broodmare, Little Nikita, will be missed.

Harbor Bird
NCh. Joyeux Oiseau (created) x Delaware Market (created)
8.1h flea-bitten grey (bald face, RH sock, LH stocking) filly

No idea what this girl is going to do, but she's a cute little thing! She is from Joyeux Oiseau's first crop and is Delaware Market's third foal. Harbor Bird's half-siblings are all unraced. Joyeux Oiseau and Delaware Market were both late bloomers, so I think it will be a few years before I'll see what this filly can do on the track. Good thing she's cute enough to hang out in the pastures at home until then. :)

3 colts - 7 fillies - 1 deceased mare - 0 remaining!
Happy 2016 foaling season!
