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.

Sorry about your colt, Alyssa. Timiti may have to find his way to my barn under the cover of darkness. ;)

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.

So sorry about the What's Your Point colt.

Congratulations on the Foolhardy colt. When he gets to my stable :D, we'll have to change his name, though. LOL!

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.

Nice foals. Really surprised Treasure Hunt wasn't already in use.

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
