Mm...if you see an empty stall where Twilight lives, I'm completely not to blame. *whistles innocently*

Haha!
She's definitely one of my favorites!  I only own her thanks to the Color War, when we got to choose our own prizes within certain guidelines. I had a choice of a platinum mare or a young MSW mare - I chose her hoping she had potential to reproduce platinum-level talent for more years (and wouldn't be a dud in the shed).  I'm glad that gamble paid off!

3 more foals have arrived - now we are just waiting on one final foal, purchased in-utero with his/her dam.  These last three came under bittersweet circumstances - 3 lovely new babies, but at the loss of two beloved broodmares.

June 16:

ICE ICE BABY - 9.1hh black colt
SIRE: NCh. Ducati (Ch. Magic Cross {S} x Ch. Pennysurprise {G})
DAM: Ch. Hawaiian Ice (Bold Ruler {S} x Casino Maid {B})

This is the second foal from this stakes placed mare.  Her yearling colt has been renamed "Ice Cube".  Unfortunately, she did not fare well through the birth and has passed away.

June 20:

OLYMPIC MEDAL - 10.3hh brown filly
SIRE: ICh. V is for Victory {S} (GCh. Jazz It Up {G} x Dark Victory {P})
DAM: Olympic Gold {S} (created)

1/2 to MSW GCh. Olympic Torch & MSW Ch. London Gala.  Unfortunately, this was another difficult birth, and the mare did not ultimately survive.  At a 15.0 rating, she's likely be be gold, or even platinum, ranked in due time, so this loss is extra painful.

June 30:

HEART OF DIXIE - 9.1hh black filly
SIRE: NCh. Ducati (Ch. Magic Cross {S} x Ch. Pennysurprise {G})
DAM: Dixie Love {P} (created)

1/2 to MSW GCh. Laevateinn, MSW Ch. Lovespell, MSW Ch. Sweet Home Alabama, and MSW Ch. El Carino.

Our final foal of the year finally arrived, and as I was viewing him in RL on my laptop, my toddler (22mo old) saw his dapples, pointed to them, and excitedly squealed JELLYBEAN!, so I didn't even have to come up with a name.  (She normally just says "ho(rse)! and points)

July 24

Jellybean - 8.3hh dapple grey colt
SIRE: GCh. Galaxy's Zodiac {B} (GCh. High On Love {S} x GCh. Dream Skipper {G})
DAM: Reckless Delight (GCh. Temptation x Rings of Saturn {S})

Third foal from this MW mare, who was purchased in foal because I have sentimental feelings towards both of her lines - my first ever homebred was by Temptation, and another of my first broodmares was a half sister to Rings of Saturn.
