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.

Congrats on the healthy French Ruby girl! He seems to really like throwing colts so I'm always happy to see new fillies. :)

This morning we had another foal arrive.

Noble Planet
Bay - Colt - 9.0h
S: Ch. Rumor Has It (B) (Planet Hollywood (S/S) Chef-de-Race (I/C) x Street Talk (S))
D: Natural Talent (B) (Planet Hollywood (S/S) Chef-de-Race (I/C) x Natural Disater (B))

We purchased Natural Talent in foal to Rumor Has It. I'd never breed 1/2 siblings together. Noble may be gelded in the future, I'm not sure I'd want him standing to stud unless he was just an amazing racer and then I'd have to really think about it.

Noble Planet is Natural Talents seventh foal.

Congrats on the colt.

There's another horse bred on the same cross (What's Spring?), it'll be interesting to see what they do.

Interesting, I wonder why Noble Planet's doubled ancestor appears in bold and GCh. High On Love's double Highland Rogue is not bold.
