Well we had one late foal and one early.

Illumination
9.2hh dark bay filly
NCh. The Fighting Fifty (B) x GCh. Electrifying [Black Legend (S)]

This filly was born about a week late. I am having a super hard time naming her; nothing really seems to fit. She is almost the spitting image of her mom though. :) The Fighting Fifty was a very nice runner, excelling in sprints and middle distance runs, while Electrifying made her splash almost exclusively in sprinting. All four grandparents are silver-rated.

Utsusemi
8.1hh dark bay colt
ICh. Witness (B) x Soifon

Semi was born a few weeks early. His mom was a nice runner at two and won a stakes at three before sharply tailing off, while Witness raced successfully on all surfaces and at pretty much every distance into his four year old year. I'm hoping to add a bit of longevity to Semi's career. Utsusemi is named after his mom. Soifon is a character in the Bleach anime/manga. One of her powers is utsusemi, which is the ability to move "at great sudden speed, leaving at least one tangible after-image behind."

The first thing that popped into my head with the filly is Hundred Watt (or perhaps Hundred Watt Smile?) Or there's Megawatt or Alva (Thomas Edison's middle name). I'll keep pondering.

Another one today! After this guy, no foals til the end of April and then none til June.

Tarhun
8.2hh liver chestnut colt
Point Given (S) x River of Dreams (B)

Tarhun is named after a Hurrian god of sky and storm, Teshub, whose Hittite name was Tarhun. I got some inspiration from Point Given's sire, Thunder Gulch. :) I'm not sure how this cross will fare. Dreams is a solid producer and my first foal from her, Greylin, was second in her only start.

7 fillies
7 colts
2 foals left

Finally! After almost a month of waiting (a week and a half of those being late), there's another foal in the barn.

Everyman's Right
10.0hh strawberry roan colt
WCh. Strider (S) x One True Way (S)

This big guy is half to three MSP runners and one MSW so I'm hoping Strider will give him some class and bump him up into Super Awesome Runner territory.

8 colts
7 fillies
1 foal left (not until June! :( )

Last foal of the year was finally born yesterday!

Ultraglory
8.2hh bay colt
ICh. Magic Glory (S) x Ch. Kentucky Bourbon by Foolish Pleasure (S)

Ultraglory is a handsome little guy. Magic Glory and Bourbon raced almost exclusively as steeplechasers while both peaked in their four year old year. Bourbon wasn't the flashiest racehorse but she was super consistent which is a trait I'm hoping she'll pass on to her offspring. I'm excited for this guy to start racing and see if he has any talent on the flat.
