Last year saw us standing our first stallion for his first full season, so we look forward to welcoming several Witness babies.
Last season was incredibly colt-heavy, so we'll see what this season will bring!

We started out with a pretty filly on the first:

ROYAL WEDDING - 8.0hh dark grey filly
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {G})
DAM: Must Be Royal (GCh. Must Be Magic {S} x Ch. Jungle Queen {S})

This little filly is the third from her dam.  The first, a Bellagio filly, will run this spring.  The name seemed fitting, as it is certainly something "royal" that we all would like to "witness".
MUST BE ROYAL visits Animal Kingdom next.



Today, three more joined us:

DEVILMADEMEDOIT - 9.3hh chestnut colt
SIRE: NCh. Carrowmore (Ch. Irish River {S} x Dark Miss {P})
DAM: Devil's Dream (NCh. Devil May Care {S} x Ch. Hope's Dream {B})

This colt is the second from his dam, though the first foal was bred & is owned by Lochiedo.  He's a well-bred, strapping colt, though.
DEVIL'S DREAM visits Sixth Day next for a similar cross as that which produced MSW Ch. Volkl.


JEWELED CROSS - 9.1hh dark bay filly
SIRE: Ch. Magic Cross {S} (Cross Roads {S} x Highland Sorceress {P})
DAM: Ch. Bold Jewel (Bold Ruler {G} x Queen's Jewel {S})

This is the second foal from the dam, and the sire is one of my favorites.
BOLD JEWEL visits V is for Victory next.


KERIAN IMAGE - 8.3hh bay filly
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {G})
DAM: Ch. Keria Toon {S} (created)

This filly is 1/2 to MSW Ch. Singsong and the 2yo multi-winner, Pistolwhip.  The name was meant to connect the names - if you "witness" something, you will forever "carry an image" of that.
KERIA TOON visits Von Lichtenstein this year.


Also, we had a number of mares retire/broodmares we purchased who were not in foal who have been bred:

LUCKY IN LOVE (WCh. Secret Of Love {G} x Make Me Lucky {S}), a multi-winner, visits Witness.
MADAME JUSTICE (Lit de Justice {G} x Lade Be Good {S}), a multi-winner with a speed record, visits Witness.
Ch. WITH A FLEURISH (NCh. Gimme A Shot {S} x Fleur's Debate {G}), a MSW with 3 speed records, visits V is for Victory.
INTO THE VOID (The Black {G} x Opening Gala {B}), a multi-winner, visits Long Live the King for the sire/BM sire cross that produced MSW Ch. Repudiate.
Ch. FOXY RUBY (Gallant Fox {B} x Ch. Ruby Slippers {G}), a stakes placed mare with 3 speed records, visits Giant's Causeway for a technical 3/4 relation to MSW GCh. Sionnach.
GET SHORTY (Planet Hollywood {S} x Jazzanna {B}), a multi-winner, visits Magic Glory for the same sire/BM sire as MSW GCh. Triomphe.
Ch. INDYWIND (A.P. Indy {S} x Windinthewillows {B}), a multi-winner with 2 speed records, visits Strider for the same sire/BM sire as MSW NCh. Star Spun.
Ch. BANAFRIT (Ch. Magic Cross {S} x Egyptian Pharaoh {S}), a MSP mare with a speed record, visits My Lucky Day for a 50% relation to MSW GCh. Akhetnaten.
Ch. FIFTY NOT OUT (NCh. The Fighting Fifty {B} x Final Salute {B}), a stakes placed mare with a speed record, visits Witness.
MANGO FRAPPE (Sunday Silence {S} x Whimsical Victory {B}), a multi-winner with a speed record, visits V is for Victory.
LUCKY DUCKY (created), a multi-winner with 2 speed records, visits Witness.
Ch. RUTH SAGE (created), a stakes placed mare with a speed record, visits V is for Victory.

Two more healthy colts have arrived!


VINDICTIVE - 10.0hh bay colt
SIRE: ICh. Dr. Evil (Resident Evil {G} x Grande Finale {G})
DAM: Ch. Violet Haze (created)

This colt was bred by Fox Run.  It is the first foal from the dam, who was a multi-winner and set a speed record at age 3.
VIOLET HAZE is visiting All Jazzed Up this season.

FRANK'S A REBEL - 9.1hh brown colt
SIRE: Frankel (created)
DAM: Renegade Song (Cigar {G} x MissionControl {B})

This is the second foal from the dam, though the first was bred out on lease.  This colt is a bit of a gamble, but I'm hoping he figures out how to run.
RENEGADE SONG is visiting Edinburgh for a 2x3 cross to Cigar - fingers crossed.

Me too! I worked with a Hackney pony stud briefly named Vindication - thought that was a cool name, too.

One more boy:

FEELIN' WITTY - 8.1hh brown colt
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {G})
DAM: I'm Feelin' Lucky (created)

This little colt is from a random pairing.  He is the first foal from the mare, who was very lightly raced through her career (an average of 3 starts per year), and thus doesn't have much to show for it.  Still, she finished in the top two 6 of 12 non-stakes starts from ages 2 to 6.

I'M FEELIN' LUCKY is visiting V is for Victory this year.

I've been a bit busy lately, and have had the most difficult time naming babies this year.  Don't be surprised if a name or two changes later, after I get more time to stare at it & decide if it truly "fits".   :P

Since my last post, our baby count has DOUBLED.   :o  Thankfully, everyone is healthy and happy so far.

On January 30th:

GHOSTHEART - 9.1hh bay colt
SIRE: Ghostzapper (Awesome Again {S} x created)
DAM: Ch. Heartless {S} (Affirmed {S} x Xena {B})

This is the 8th foal from this proven producer, though only the second for us.  This foal is 1/2 to MSW Ch. Imperial Gesture, SW Ch. Alybama, and SP Heartless Junction.
HEARTLESS visits Witness next.


On January 31st:

LOST BOY - 10.0hh blue roan colt
SIRE: NCh. Lucky Streak (Rahy {S} x Ch. Wild Streak {P})
DAM: Wendy {B} (Land Ho {S} x Dreams Never End {S})

This is the 6th foal from this stakes winning, multiple speed record setting mare.  Two of the three foals to race are very underraced, and the third is by a sire I've never had luck with, so I'm going to blame him.   :P  This is my first foal from her.
WENDY is visiting Candidate this year.


On February 2nd:

WATCH ME WHIRL - 8.1hh light bay filly
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {G})
DAM: Ch. Twirlaway (Whirlaway {S} x Fondly Yours {B})

This is the first foal from this SW mare, so I'm excited to see how she does.
TWIRLAWAY visits V is for Victory next.


On February 6th:

AT LAST - 8.1hh black filly
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {G})
DAM: Etta James (GCh. Jazz It Up {G} x Prosperous Cheater {S})

This is the second foal (first for us) from this multi-winning, speed record holding mare.  I'm anxious to see how she turns out.
ETTA JAMES visits TakeMeToHollywood for the same sire/BM sire cross as MSW GCh. Taking Vegas.


On February 7th:

SOMMELIER - 9.2hh dark bay colt
SIRE: ICh. Count Me In {S} (Count Fleet {S} x Ch. Highland Dreamer {G})
DAM: Syrah (Bold Ruler {G} x A Splash of Color {B})

This is the first foal from this multi-winning, speed record holding Bold Ruler daughter.  Add in his sire, who is making a name for himself, and I have high hopes for this big boy.
SYRAH visits Lord Nelson this year.


On February 8th:

METROPOLITAN - 9.1hh bay colt
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {G})
DAM: Ch. Cosmopolitan (A.P. Indy {S} x Drink Til Hes Cute {B})

This is the third foal (and third colt) from this SW mare.  Her 2yo colt by Gunningdownromance is owned by Pruchna, so we will be watching his career with interest.
COSMOPOLITAN is visiting King David this year as both her sire- and damlines seem to do well with him.


FOREIGN DEBATE - 9.2hh blue roan colt
SIRE: NCh. Lucky Streak (Rahy {S} x Ch. Wild Streak {P})
DAM: Fleur's Debate {G} (WCh. What's Debatable {S} x Fleur de Lis {S})

This is the 5th live foal we've gotten from this mare.  He's 1/2 to MSW Ch. With A Fleurish and multi-winner Ch. Mood Indigo.
FLEUR'S DEBATE visits Worthy Victor this year for a distant pedigree cross relation to MSW NCh. Nightshade.

She's probably my favorite from that batch, too, just based on her name.  She was the easiest to name!

And now we have another girl to introduce:

PROSE EDDA - 8.3hh dark bay filly
SIRE: ICh. Sleipnir {B} (NCh. Lucky Cigar {G} x NCh. You Belong {G})
DAM: Holiday Joy (Northern Dancer {B} x Ch. Titian {B})

This is the first foal from the dam, a multi-winner.  The dam wasn't started until age 3, but had a respectable OTB percent for ages 3 & 4.  I had planned to run her more before retiring her, but I ended up with an open booking to Sleipnir that I didn't want to miss and no unbooked broodmares.  Fingers crossed on this one.  But she is named after the main source of knowledge about Norse mythology (and, by default, religion/holidays).
HOLIDAY JOY is visiting Witness next.

Two new babies have arrived:


SHARPSIGHT - 9.1hh bay colt
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {G})
DAM: Oh So Sharp {G} (Dr. Time {B} x Sweet Escapes {S})

I'm so glad to have a healthy foal from our gold-rated mare.  This makes him 1/2 to MSW Ch. Oh So Proud, SW Chicago's Demon, & SP Ch. Oh So Famous.  I suspect he'll be a late bloomer (from both sides of his pedigree), but he ought to be worth the wait.
OH SO SHARP is visiting the in-house stallion, V is for Victory, next.



MARCH ON - 9.1hh dark bay filly
SIRE: WCh. Strider {G} (Highland Rogue {P} x Seeing Starz {P})
DAM: GCh. Madd Karol (created)

This is another foal I am excited about.  This is the 3rd live foal from this MSW mare.  The oldest, 2yo VOIR DIRE by Sixth Day, will start this spring.  She was one of my two starter horses, which adds to the excitement of this foal.  Then, having the famous Strider as a sire doesn't hurt, either.
MADD KAROL is coming stateside to visit Bellagio, a sire we've had amazing luck with.

Another colt!


BRAVO WORTHY - 9.2hh dark bay colt
SIRE: ICh. Worth The Wait {S} (What's It Worth {P} x Rise and Shine {S})
DAM: Bravodora {S} (created)

This is the fourth foal from this stakes winning, 3 time speed record setting mare.  He is 1/2 to the multi-winner, Vive le Roi.
BRAVODORA is visiting the in-house stallion, Witness, this year.

Two more!


NAVAL PORT - 9.0hh grey colt
SIRE: NCh. In The Navy (Man O'War {S} x Dayatthebeach {G})
DAM: Ch. Kiasport {S} (created)

Fourth foal (and fourth colt) from this stakes winning dam, and from his sire's first crop.  He is 1/2 to MSW Ch. Sportsmanship, one of our better 2YOs last year.  I'm excited for this one.
KIASPORT is visiting the in-house stallion, V is for Victory.


CANDID STAR - 8.3hh dark bay filly
SIRE: ICh. Candidate {G} (What's It Worth {P} x Dark Magic {P})
DAM: I'm a Star {S} (created)

This is the fourth foal from this stakes placed dam, and the sire has proven himself to be one of the best.  She is 1/2 to V is for Valiant, who won two of his three starts, before tragically breaking his leg in a freak accident.  He is on the mend, though, and will be tested again late in his 3YO year.
I'M A STAR is coming back to see V is for Victory for a full sibling to Valiant.

Thanks!  I'm a bit excited for them, but I'm partial.


One more!


SEA THE HUMOR - 7.2hh blood bay colt
SIRE: Sea the Stars (created)
DAM: Queen of Humor {B} (created)

This is the fifth foal from this 3-time speed record setting mare.  The first two (Comedy Queen & Smile Awhile) are winners.  I held onto this boy because I'm excited to see what Sea the Stars does as a sire.
QUEEN OF HUMOR has been sold to Marshall Creek Ranch.

Another healthy foal!


CIGNIFICANT - 9.1hh bay colt
SIRE: Ch. Magic Cross {S} (Cross Roads {S} x Highland Sorceress {P})
DAM: Cigarillo (Cigar {G} x ICh. Little Miss {G})

This is the first foal from this multi-winning mare.  She comes from a great pedigree, but was underraced.  I purchased her as a 6YO who hadn't won since age 3 (with only 3 starts at age 4, 0 starts at age 5, and 1 start at age 6).  I felt it was too late for her to make a name for herself on the track, but I'm hoping that her strong pedigree will carry over to the next generation.  The sire, Magic Cross, is one of my absolute favorites.  I tend to get MSWers out of him.
CIGARILLO is booked to our home stallion, Witness.

Two new babies, and two new fillies!  That helps even the odds a little...
Though it comes at a bittersweet cost, with a mare retirement...


SONG OF TRUTH - 8.3hh bay filly
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {S})
DAM: Sovereign Song {S}

This foal is 1/2 to MSW Ch. Sovereign Glory and SW Ch. Brianza, the only two foals from this mare to race yet.  So far, she's proving to be QUITE the producer.  I'm excited to see what this guy can do.
SOVEREIGN SONG is visiting our other stallion, V is for Victory.


KLONDIKE FINALE - 9.3hh flea-bitten grey filly
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {S})
DAM: Klondike Nights {S} (Black Knight {S} x Klondike Gold {S})

This foal is 1/2 to MSWers GCh. Coquette (4yo f) & Ch. Allnighter II (3yo f).  She looks a lot like her dam.  Unfortunately, Klondike Nights has unexpectedly been forced to retire due to health complications.  Thankfully, I own several daughters who will someday replace her in the shed, but it's still a tough bit of news to accept.
KLONDIKE NIGHTS is retiring.  :(

A "top stable"...?  :o
I hadn't considered myself one of those!  I guess I still picture my "little" farm as one of the newer underdogs, even though I've been here for years now.  I'm a long, long way from the legacy most of the REALLY big name stables have created.  But that's an interesting perspective - and flattering.  :)  I hope I can get him to do you proud!


We got a lovely trio a couple days ago.  Apparently they all wanted to arrive together.


WISH COME TRUE - 9.1hh blue roan colt
SIRE: WCh. As You Wish {S} (WCh. Secret of Love {G} x NCh. Cross My Heart {G})
DAM: It's All Yours (Forget It {G} x Fondly Yours {B})

This handsome colt is the third foal (and third colt) from this multi-stakes placed mare.  The first foal is owned by FF, so who knows when he will have his first start.  It may be a while 'til we have any idea how this mare produces, but I'm hoping the 3 gold-rated grandparents shine through...
IT'S ALL YOURS is visiting Blue Smoke this year.



HOLDIN' THE GUN - 9.0hh dark grey filly
SIRE: ICh. Spock {B} (ICh. Highland Magic {S} x Somethin' Smokin {G})
DAM: Murder By Numbers (Run For It {S} x CrossTheThreshold {G})

This is the third foal (and first filly) from this multi-stakes placed mare.  She is the first daughter to take her dam's famous place in our brood band after her retirement.  (Her dam was our first gold-rated broodmare.)
MURDER BY NUMBERS is visiting Witness this year.



ZODIAC THEATER - 8.2hh grey filly
SIRE: GCh. Galaxy's Zodiac (GCh. High On Love {S} x GCh. Dream Skipper {G})
DAM: Theatrical Lady (created)

This is the third foal (and first filly) from this stakes placed mare.  Normally we prefer our broodmare candidates to have a little more prestige - in achievements and/or pedigree - but Theatrical Lady had a very solid, too-short 2YO year (she only ran 4X per year), and we think we can use her early maturity to influence our future generations.  Time will tell!  Her first foal, Oedipus Rex, seems to be mature and is in training now...
THEATRICAL LADY is visiting V is for Victory next.

Another colt!


WAR IS HELL - 9.2hh mahogany bay colt
SIRE: NCh. Dark Demand {B} (Black Knight {S} x In Demand {G})
DAM: War Cat {B} (created)

I'm excited to see such a tall, handsome colt from this cross.  This is our second foal from this sprinter mare (and her fifth total foal).  He is 1/2 to SP The Last Secret, owned by Renegade Racing and Breeding.  The other two are owned by FF.  He is, of course, named after the famous quote.
WAR CAT is visiting Lasting Spirit in hopes he'll help her throw a good 2yo runner.

A filly!

THAT'S SO TRUE - 8.2hh dark grey filly
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {S})
DAM: That's So Funny (created)

This is the fourth foal from this very tall, multi-winning mare.  The first, now 3, STILL hasn't hit in his projected height range.  We started him as a late 2yo (December), and he broke his leg in the same month during a tragic workout - WALKING.  Her 2yo filly is nearly at her projected height, but we're not taking any chances this time around.  She's still a pasture ornament until she matures a bit more, just to be safe.  Witness also tends to throw late bloomers, so I expect this one to sit out her 2yo year, most likely.  Hopefully she is worth the wait.
THAT'S SO FUNNY is visiting Sleipnir this year, who was a MSW at 2yo.

It's been a busy couple of weeks in RL (I'll explain that in a later post), but in the meantime, we have 5 new babies to announce.  Somehow, they're all boys...but healthy!


SUNRAY - 8.2hh grey colt
SIRE: Sun King (created)
DAM: Ch. Runaway Angel (created)

This boy is a gamble based on his created pedigree.  Dad's first crop is just hitting the tracks this spring, as is mom's first foal (eventually, we assume).  Dad didn't race in-game, but mom is a MSW who set a whopping 5 speed records, mainly on sprints.  Needless to say, we're curious about how this boy turns out!
RUNAWAY ANGEL is visiting Witness next, since he likes to throw long distance runners.  Hopefully they'll meet in the middle!



HONEST FOX - 8.2hh bay colt
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {S})
DAM: Lucky Fox (Gallant Fox {B} x Here's To Luck {S})

This is the third foal from his dam, who was lightly raced, but still set 3 speed records.  Both mom & dad liked longer distances, so we expect that this boy probably will, too.
LUCKY FOX is visiting V is for Victory next.



KEMISTREE - 8.1hh light bay colt
SIRE: FFCh. High Chances {G} (GCh. Highland Laird {S} x Second Chance {P})
DAM: Fizzix {S} (Seabiscuit {S} x Delicate Subject {S})

This colt is 1/2 to SP Xcientist.  His dam seems to throw late bloomers, and High Chances is known for get that don't blossom 'til 3 or later, so we're probably looking at another one.  But hopefully, when he does finally find his feet, it will have been worth the wait.
FIZZIX has been sold to Marshall Creek Ranch.



UPSWING - 8.2hh chestnut colt
SIRE: WCh. Drum Major (GCh. High On Love {S} x Rapunzel {G})
DAM: Uptown Girl {G} (created)

This colt is 1/2 to MSW Ch. Queen Catarina, SW Ch. Goodnight Saigon, and SW Ch. Newyorknewyork.  The dam is one of our most successful producers right now, so we're super excited to see a healthy foal on the ground.  He's got quite the big shoes to fill someday!
UPTOWN GIRL is visiting Witness next.



CLASSIC ROCK - 9.1hh bay colt
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {S})
DAM: Ch. Classic Irish (NCh. I'm A Classic {S} x Ch. Celtic Mist {S})

This colt is bred 2x3 to Class Act.  His dam is a lightly raced SW, and dad is slowly proving himself in the breeding shed.  It will be interesting to see how this cross affects his talent in a couple years.
CLASSIC IRISH is visiting V is for Victory next.

Two mares foaled early (they couldn't wait 'til June), and the fillies will officially lose this year:


TIMITI - 9.1hh bay colt
SIRE: FFCh. Foolhardy {P} (What's It Worth {P} x Foolish Question {P})
DAM: ICh. Twilight Embers {G} (Irish River {G} x Evening Flame {P})

This colt is by far our most royally bred, so I'm incredibly relieved to see that he's arrived safe and sound.  Not only is he by the only platinum ranked stallion in the game, but he's also 1/2 to recently stud-qualified NCh. Fight The Twilight and SW Ch. Ciao Bella.  With all that gold & platinum in his pedigree, I really hope he can live up to it! He's named after a festival in which the townspeople walk over embers.
TWILIGHT EMBERS is being re-bred to Foolhardy in hopes of getting a filly this time...not that I'd be unhappy with another colt!


Sadly, we lost our other foal:

SIRE: ICh. What's Your Point {G} (Point Given {S} x Rosebud {G})
DAM: Playful Breeze (NCh. I'm A Classic {S} x Lucky Breeze {S})

I'm incredibly sad to lose this colt, especially since his sire retired this year.  I seem to have incredible bad luck with foals of newly retired stallions.  Darn.  At least mom has been cleared by the vet, though.
PLAYFUL BREEZE is coming to visit our own V is for Victory.

Oh you can bet he's being kept under lock and key for just that reason!  ;)

Apparently the fillies didn't like my comment, as they added two more to their ranks today:


EYEONTHEPRIZE - 10.0hh dark bay filly
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {S})
DAM: Grama's Prize {S} (created)

This pretty filly is by our first stallion, Witness, who's gaining credentials through his get, slowly.  His dam set 3 speed records on the track despite her short career (age 5 & 6 only).  Only one half sibling has raced - a 3yo filly who is a multi-winner.  I was on the fence about selling the dam, but now think I might keep her around for another season or two.  Her get seem to mature late, but that might make her a good match for Ducati when he retires...  However, this particular filly seems awfully big (i.e. mature) already, and Witness is better known for throwing late maturers, too.  Maybe this filly will prove that theory wrong!
GRAMA'S PRIZE will sit open 'til spring - this thrower of late maturers needs to foal sooner than June next time!


CHASING GOLD - 9.3hh bay colt
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {S})
DAM: Olympic Gold {S} (created)

Another big Witness filly from a silver-rated mare.  However, Olympic Gold threw us a MSW, 3yo Ch. Olympic Torch, on her first try, so her actual rating number is a 20.0 right now until her get have more races behind them.  She's definitely one of our up-and-coming broods.  I'm excited to get a full crop of Witness babies to the track and test them out, but it will still be a while yet.
OLYMPIC GOLD is visiting Drum Major this year.

Four more have made their arrival:


TREASURE HUNT - 8.3hh black filly
SIRE: NCh. Changeling (Sadler's Wells {G} x Dark Magic {P})
DAM: Highland Treasure {S} (GCh. Highland Laird {S} x Harada's Treasure {S})

This pretty filly has quite the pedigree to back her up. Though her dam is only rated silver currently, we expect that rating to go up as her offspring get more races under their belt (she is at a 13.8 score currently). This makes her 1/2 to MSW Ch. Worth A Treasure and SW Such A Fool.  This is, of course, her sire's first crop, so we will have to see.
HIGHLAND TREASURE is visiting V is for Victory next.


CATCH A RIDE - 9.1hh mahogany bay filly
SIRE: Candy Ride (created)
DAM: Catch A Glimpse {B} (created)

This filly is quite the gamble. She is from her sire's first crop, and her dam has only produced two winners from four starters so far.  Most are owned by Final Furlong, though, so who knows if they have been given a real chance. Our first foal from her is her 2yo who was given extra time to mature and has not yet started.  Her dam did set a sprinting speed record, though.
CATCH A GLIMPSE is being listed for sale.



FLEET EIGHTEEN - 9.3hh bay colt
SIRE: NCh. Eighteen Karat (What's It Worth {P} x Heart of Gold {S})
DAM: Just Fleet {B} (NCh. Fleet Street {S} x Just Like You {B})

This colt is from a mare who has produced two winners from four starters, mostly under FF management.  I'm hoping that the cross of his extended pedigree will pull through and grant him talent on the track. This is only his sire's second crop.
JUST FLEET is visiting Ring of Fire this year.



LIFE OR DEATH 8.3hh blue roan colt
SIRE: ICh. To Die For (NCh. Slew O'Scots {S} x Ch. Trail of Smoke {P})
DAM: Sunday Living {B} (Sunday Silence {S} x Viva V {S})

This colorful colt is from his sire's first crop. He is 1/2 to SW Ch. Six Ways to Sunday and two winners from four to race. I'm curious to see how he turns out as a result.
SUNDAY LIVING is currently seeking a boyfriend, preferably in Aus.

Well darn.
July isn't off to a very good start.

First, our first stallion, ICh. Witness, has been retired at age 12.  He was only allowed 1 full season with us - two total, if you count the last few bookings after we acquired him, and this season which was tragically cut short.  I blindly had assumed that we had several more years with him around.  Thankfully, he is still alive and healthy enough (aside from breeding capabilities) - so we hope he will live many long years and live to see the rest of his progeny grow up & blossom.

Then, to add insult to injury, our silver-rated mare delivered a stillborn colt by Witness.  I told you I have abnormally bad luck with retired stallion foals!   :(  This is the second stillbirth at the farm this year, with the first being the What's Your Point (retired) colt...

SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {S})
DAM: Springwalker {S} (created)
SPRINGWALKER is visiting Unabridged next.

Our final foal FINALLY decided to make her appearance.  Sadly, she is promised back to Krajina (as part of the deal to buy back her dam), so she remains unnamed.  So I consoled myself with a created filly as well.


UNNAMED - 9.3hh dark bay filly
SIRE: ICh. Magic Glory {G} (Lonesome Glory {S} x Magician's Mystery {P})
DAM: Dixie Love {G} (created)
This filly is 1/2 to 5yo MSW Ch. Lovespell, 4yo MSW Ch. Sweet Home Alabama, 3yo MSW Ch. Laevateinn, and 2yo SW El Carino...which is why we were so eager to buy back her dam in the first place!  All four are bred & owned by us, with the yearling filly having been bred by us but sold in-utero (she's with Krajina, where this one will be headed in 3 months).  I'm jealous - I wish she could stay!  Add Magic Glory to the cross, and she's sure to be a monster.
DIXIE LOVE has been bred to our own V is for Victory.


MOON AND STARS - 9.3hh flea-bitten grey filly
SIRE: created
DAM: created
There's not much to say about this filly, except that she's lovely.  I've had good luck with created babies over the years, so I'm hopeful she'll find her feet someday.  Meanwhile, our mare, Springwalker, who lost her foal at the beginning of the month, has taken this filly under her wing, which seems to suit her just fine.


So our final tally comes to:
19 fillies & 25 colts
2 stillborn
1 mare retirement
