Foal watch was quite sad today. Our Ring of Fire daughter was due today and right on time, she went into labor early in the evening and after several hours the vet was called. With the vet's help Kissy delivered her first foal. Sadly the foal was weak and passed shortly after birth.

We lost a filly By Frankel, a big filly we were looking forward to this foal.

Kissy is doing fine and with some pasture rest will visit Lord Nelson for her 2020 foal.

Sorry to be annoying, but can you pick a new name? There's a 1997 mare named The Cover Girl.
