So much for the even numbers.  Lately, it's raining colts.  And one-word names.

Loughcrew
NCh. Carrowmore x Ch. Refinement (Rahy)
9.1h Chestnut Colt

This kid took a little longer to brew (he was the overdue mentioned in the last post), and was one of four boys who arrived on 1/30.  We already have a MSW daughter of Carrowmore, so couldn't resist another try.  This was Refinement's first foal.


Harbinger
ICh. Starling x Afterlife (False Promises)
8.2h Black Colt

From a freshman stallion, he is 1/2 on his damside to NCh. Pay the Boatman, GCh. Nighthawk, and Ch. Eridanos.  Mom (Finally, thanks to her 3yo figuring out where the wire is) has 5 winners from 5 to race.  She'd be even more of a favorite if she'd start throwing a few more fillies (she's 1 for 8 so far).


Ambassador
NCh. Von Lichtenstein x Ch. Attache (NCh. Diplomat)
8.2h Grey Colt

SP dam's first foal. 


Solely Responsible
Blame x Exclusive Song (Affirmed)
8.2h Dark Bay Colt

Mom is largely unproven as a dam, so he'll be a puzzle in a couple years.


Starting off the February kids:

Bonner Bridge
ICh. Unabridged x NCh. Five Rivers (ICh. Alley Cat)
8.2h Grey Colt

Named for a bridge that connects parts of the North Carolina Outer Banks.  Here's hoping his pretty breeding pays off. 


12 colts | 7 fillies | 1 stillborn | 47 due

Thanks for all the comments, everyone, and congrats on your own babies!

The last 3 days saw the arrival of 6 babies and the loss of one.

A colt (GCh. Venture His Due x Fairy War) was still born.  Mom is revisiting the same sire.


Southbound
GCh. Superdocious x Ch. Jet Setting Jane
8.2h Dark Grey Colt

Fourth foal from MSP dam.  Neither her 4yo nor her 2yo (obviously) have raced, but I'm hoping for good things.


Pendeloque
NCh. Run Jenny Run x Ch. Briolette of India (WCh. Crystal Rainbow)
8.1h Dark Grey Filly

Mom's first foal.  Her name is another way of saying mom's name.  Both refer to a particular gemstone cut (pear-shaped).  Suspect she'll take to turf.


Paper Plane
NCh. Sunday Paper x Ch. Gotta Fly (WCh. Gotta Go)
8.2h Dark Bay Filly

It was between her current name and Paper Airplane.  First foal from mom, who had a nice long career, winning up to age 6. 


Indiana Jones
American Pharoah x Ch. Steal Away (create)
9.2h Dark Grey Colt

If I need to change his name, I will.  My thought process went something like this: pharaoh, Egypt, thief, grave robber, archaeology...INDY!


First Crusade
NCh. Holy Warrior x NCh. Unprecedented (ICh. Unabridged)
8.1h Black Colt

I was planning this breeding before either mom or dad retired.  They raced concurrently, and both excelled on turf.  Fingers crossed that their families passed on some ability.  Can't wait for this one to race. 


Erinyes
NCh. Pay the Boatman x My Favorite (GCh. Must Be Magic)
9.1h Blood Bay Filly

Lovely filly from a homebred stallion. 


15 colts | 10 fillies | 2 stillborn | 40 due (at least 1 overdue)

sorry about the lost foal, so disappointing when you have waited a whole year for it to arrive.
The others look great though!

Sorry about your lost foal.

Love the alliteration in Paper Plane.

Five arrivals since the last update:

Esgaroth
Dunaden x Blackest Night (create)
9.0h Brown Colt

A complete unknown here! 


Parking Ticket
NCh. Pay the Boatman x Meter Maid (Citation)
8.3h Bay Filly

Mom has 3 winners from 3 to race, including 1 MSW.  She (mom) is up for sale for $15k. 


The People's Song
NCh. French Ruby x Folk Music
9.0h Grey Colt

So far very pleased with my French Ruby babies and mom's aren't at all shabby.  Named what he is because the song's actual name wouldn't fit.  Theater folks should get it. :)


Val D'Or
ICh. Calle de Oro x ICh. Bay of Biscay (ICh. Prince of Wonder)
9.1h Black Colt

Another one where we're hoping pretty breeding pays off.


Blind Faith
NCh. Hidden Destiny x In Thy Name (create)
8.3h Black Colt

1/2 to NCh. Holy Warrior, GCh. When You Were Mine, Ch. In Your Honor, and SW Rosary.  Looking forward to his racing days.


19 colts | 11 fillies | 2 stillborn | 34 due
