Thanks, Shanthi!


Slow again, but got two very nice fillies at the beginning of April/spring, including an April Fool's baby!

Red Jenny is a chestnut Fool's baby by Karat-Successful Sister, by Hope to Succeed. I love her name - it's from Dragon Age (surprise, surprise) and the full title is "Friends of Red Jenny", a Robin Hood-esque group of thieves, rogues, and assassins working to remind the nobles and the wealthy not to ignore those of the lower classes. One of the companion characters in Inquisition is a Friend of Red Jenny and the tarot card that represents her is The Fool.

Don't have any immediate breeding plans for Successful Sister.


The next day came Sunset Gold Rush, another chestnut filly by Karat-Rahy On The Rocks, by Rahy. I'm still so proud of the dam's name, which is why the filly is named after a cocktail.

Have not finalized Rahy On The Rocks' breeding plans either. Because I'm terribly lazy.


8 colts / 13 fillies / 0 stillborn/ 1 broodmare lost/ 8 foals still due <-- wow, the fillies are really outpacing the colts right now

Boy am I late with the announcements. All the May foals have arrived as well as a June foal, and they all finally have names since I'm currently procrastinating on a final.

Dance The Remigold is the first, a lovely bay filly by Long Live The King-Dancing Regal. The name comes from a line in Dragon Age Origins where a character announces that he will not put on a dress and dance the Remigold. Depending on player choices, this character could later become king. *shrugs*

Dancing Regal has been bred back to Moonopoly. This foal is definitely getting a Michael Jackson name.


Next is a lovely blue roan colt by Lucky Streak-Fair Image, by Man O'War, named Bold Fortune. His dam was a nice solid runner and her first foal is a 2YO winner, which I think bodes well for her other two colts.

Fair Image has been bred back to Karat for a full sibling to her first foal. I hope this one's a filly. The mare could use some fillies.


Next up is Captain Janeway, by Major's Flight-Chicks Are Better. I only saw one episode of Voyager but boy does the name work perfectly for this chestnut filly.

Chicks Are Better is for sale.


The winner of the "Foal with the Most Intimidating Name" contest in this barn is The Pale Rider, a handsome gray filly by Karat-Th

Incredible. It's Monday and Monday Morning dropped Blue Monday, a pretty liver chestnut filly by Sixth Day. Blue Monday is a cocktail, like the name of her granddam Whiskey Sour. And... that's about it. Goodness, can't believe we have so many fillies on the ground. What was in the water!?

Monday Morning's currently stuck in Straya and I'm not interested in shipping her home. Will probably poke around and see about booking her to an Aussieland stud.

The last two foals of this crop have finally arrived, one after another!

Divina Commedia is a beautiful black filly by the silver-ranked Unabridged-Divine Touch, by Point Given. Her name is Italian for "Divine Comedy", Dante Alighieri's epic. Her sire is a good one though her dam is unproven. Should be exciting.

No idea who to send Divine Touch to yet.


Then there is Real de a Ocho, who's going to turn into the same flea-bitten grey color that his dam is. He is by Karat-Ideal Ransom. His name is (should be, anyway) is Spanish for the Spanish dollar, specifically the Piece of Eight. The Pirates of the Caribbean movies may or may not have inspired his name.

No idea who to book Ideal Ransom to either, lol.


10 colts / 19 fillies / 0 stillborn/ 1 broodmare lost <-- fillies dominated this year and no foal was lost, though we did lose a mare while she was being leased. ah well.
