Slacked off horribly due to being completely obsessed with Dragon Age: Inquisition so I'm behind on, well, everything - booking mares, training/entering racehorses, checking to see if any babies dropped... oops  ::)

Knight Enchanter is the farm's first Karat baby, a beautiful gray colt out of Enchanted Evening, by Highland Pride. He is named for one of the mage specializations in Dragon Age: Inquisition and supposedly the most fearsome of the nine specializations offered to the main character. No pressure, baby boy.

Enchanted Evening will be bred back to TakeMeToHollywood.

Twice Blessed is a sprightly dark bay filly by Karat-Beautiful Is Gone, by Tiznow. This particular foal was long in the making; I bought her dam when she was young because her granddam is Karat's dam, Heart of Gold. My guess is that she'll be a turfer like her parents.

Beautiful Is Gone is currently not booked and may go up for lease; PM me if interested ;)

3 colts / 3 fillies / 0 stillborn/ 23 foals still due

Is Dragon Age: Inquisition good? I still have to finish Origins. (I keep finding more games that look fun and then never having time to play them.)

Nice babies, love the names. :)

Ha ha I powered through Origins in maybe three weeks after leaving the game alone for... three years. Then took two weeks to finish off Dragon Age 2 as thoroughly as possible, then went right into Inquisition. I find it lovely; it's a lot more like the Elder Scrolls games than the previous two, with an open world and the ability to jump on things. The side quests can get a bit derivative and tiring but I'm a bit of a completionist and I also poured hours into Skyrim so I'm used to it. But the story is fantastic and the characters are the greatest. It's definitely worth it for the story, the characters, and the lore imo.

And thank you! The farm is very happy with the wibbly-wobbly babies.

The other half is big into games - I just like to watch the scenery & the storyline, but hate trying to maneuver.   ::)  I suppose that's for the best, as we don't have to compete for the big screen.  He's been playing Inquisitio!n lately.  I find it amusing that the town is called Haven - our daughter's name.  We didn't plan it that way!

Anyhow, I'm really looking forward to seeing how  Karat babies do on the track!

Late again, but am happy to report the birth of four lovely fillies and one colt since the last time I posted here.

Anyanwu is a lovely chestnut filly by Karat-Vishnu, by Irish River. Anyanwu means "Eye of the Sun" and is an Igbo deity that lives in the sun. Her parents are both long-winded turfers and excellent performers.

Numa Numa is a dainty bay filly by Karat-Spice Spice Baby, by Highland Laird. She is definitely named after that ancient Internet meme, at the suggestion of a friend. I hope this cross capitalizes on the famous Worth/Rogue cross.

Dawn Will Come is a big beautiful bay colt by Karat-Rainy Day Morning, by Northern Dancer. His name happens to be yoinked from a song from Dragon Age: Inquisition (as you can tell, I'm obsessed as heck) and it matches rather well with his half-sister's name, which is Red Sky Warning.

Circle of Magi is a tiny black filly by Ring of Fire-Eudora, by Double Cross. She is named for the mage system/society in the Dragon Age games, which trains and protects/imprisons people with magical talents. I figure the name fits in with her parents' names.

Amatus is a stout chestnut filly by Golden Text-Light Up Your Life, by Cigar. Her name also comes from Dragon Age ::), this time a Tevene word that means "beloved".

The mares will all probably be put up for lease or sale.

Beyond late once again. Given certain developments at the stables, I figure I might as well post all the not-so-new arrivals as well. I hope I didn't miss anyone...

First up is Archon, a handsome liver chestnut son by Karat-Fairy Wish, by Highland Wizard. His pedigree is lovelier than his dam's current produce record, though her first racing foal is only three and there is plenty of room for improvement. If only she'd give me a filly for once, lol  He is named, once again, for something out of the Dragon Age games - this time, the title of the ruler of the Tevinter Imperium.

Fairy Wish has been bred back to Unabridged. Fingers crossed for a healthy filly.


Devil's Shoestring is a big beautiful bay filly by Sunday Paper-La Belle Talbot, by Magic Cross. Her name, like her dam's, comes from the TV show Supernatural, which I haven't seen or cared about in years but I figure that it is a fitting name for her, considering that the character Bela Talbot used devil's shoestring to try to ward off hellhounds. Devil's Shoestring might make a real nice hurdler.

La Belle Talbot has been bred back to Karat.


Gilded Temptation is a pretty blue roan by TakeMeToHollywood-Devil's Test. Her sire needs no introduction; Devil's Test was a solid runner for us but was a bit of a late bloomer.

Devil's Test will be offered for lease.


Heart of Glory is the highly anticipated foal by Karat-Scotland's Glory, by Highland Laird. I thought he'd be bigger but here's hoping he'll turn out to be a mighty mite... or hit some hideous growth spurt and shoot up to 16.2hh, who knows. His dam comes from an ultra classy line and I hope he inherited some of that class.

Scotland's Glory has been bred back to Pay the Boatman.


Sweet Disposition is a rather beautiful mahogany bay by Karat-A Dreamy Sonata, by Tiznow. There's a good chance she'll turn out the size of a monster truck much like her towering sire and dam, and that she'll like going long on the green like they did.

A Dreamy Sonata has been bred back to Player.


U S S Vengeance is a handsome bay-turning-gray son of Galaxy's Zodiac-Farewell to Arms, by Candidate. We chose the pairing based on the reserve of the popular Worth-Rogue cross and hope that'll turn out well. He has a lot of back class but his dam didn't do as well on the track as we'd hoped; perhaps she'll be better in the shed? We hope so.

Farewell to Arms has been bred back to Eighteen Karat.


I made a post in another part of the forum in a fit of panic, but we received word from Easter Valley Estate that our most promising broodmare, Sonatina, died of foaling complications after delivering a lovely Mr. Prospective filly for them. That this happened after her firstborn son won a graded stakes for us is, well, unsettling. She leaves behind three sons and a daughter, and we hope that they carry on her kind disposition and class.


8 colts / 9 fillies / 0 stillborn/ 1 broodmare lost/ 12 foals still due

So sorry to hear about Sonatina, extra hard to lose a broodmare and all her future foals. The babies all look lovely though.

For more positive news, a mare delivered her overdue foal just minutes after midnight.

Red Harted Queen is a dainty bay-turn-gray filly by Ace of Hearts-Red Light District, by Citation. The pairing was a bit of a shot in the dark, but so far Red Light District's first runner is turning out to be a sprinter like her, so we expect this pretty little filly and her two older siblings to take after their momma as well.

Red Light District will be bred back to City Upon a Hill.

Not 100% certain about the name - it's not as creative as I would like - but happy that a very overdue foal arrived and both foal and dam are healthy and happy.

Diamond Rose is a massive bright bay filly by Karat-Pink Slew, by Tiznow. Pink Slew was a hardy stakes placed sprinter with a nice dam line going back to A Diamond Jewel. Honestly, I'm relieved the foal was born - she was due on March 8th and it's March 30th right now 8|

Pink Slew will be bred back to Demand The Best, which makes for some interesting inbreeding.
