Questions / Training Schedule
« on: January 31, 2018, 01:51:23 pm »
I have my horses set on what I would like to think is a nice mellow training schedule (just walking the shortest possible distance, but daily). Lately, it seems like I've seen an uptick in injuries. I know there was talk at some point of having training schedules wait until a horse is at a certain energy level before kicking back on. Is that just something being worked on for the beta or is that something that should actually be working now?

For example, my 5yo mare, Ch. Keepcalmandcarryon ran a race on 1/20, then the code had her walk 1/2 mile (nothing strenuous) on 1/21, 1/22, 1/23, and 1/24. On her short walk on 1/24, she bowed her tendon (her first ever injury). Is this an error in the code? Or do I need to figure out a way to be more hands on with training schedules after a race (honestly, I'm not sure that I can due to RL, so that would probably mean I just do as I've been doing: suck it up and let them rest, and watch our injuries pile up). She's already back up to A/A. At 5, I'm contemplating on whether or not to end her career there.  :-\ For now, I've shipped her back to the farm to rest so I don't accidentally turn her training back on.

Anything Goes / Board Game Geekery
« on: January 02, 2018, 01:47:28 am »
Happy New Year!!

We spent the evening with a small group (4 couples + kids) of family and friends. It included lots of snack foods, board games, Mario Party tournament, etc. Somehow all 5 children were still up at midnight, including both my daughters (age 1 & 3). We've been paying for it today, ha! We go back to work/daycare tomorrow, though, after having been on paid Christmas leave since December 22nd. Working for a school district now definitely has it's perks!

PS - I bought hubby the board game, Betrayal at House on the Hill. If you've never played it, I highly recommend it. We now own the expansion, too, so there are 100 different "games" within the one board. It's based on a sci-fi/haunted house type theme.

How'd You Do? / 2021 Breeders' Series Standings
« on: December 23, 2017, 12:32:45 am »
In the past, Lewis has done some awesome posts detailing the Breeders' Series results. I was curious about this year's standings, so thought I would try to revive that below.

Currently, we have completed the first two of three Breeders' Series Races. The final races will run on 12/27 (dirt) and 12/30 (turf). It's been a close race for points so far! The only horses to win the first two legs of their respective series are all 2YOs.

Stallion Advertising / Ivy Creek Stud Lineup - 2022
« on: October 28, 2017, 02:16:11 pm »
Ivy Creek Farm is proud to present our 2022 stallion line-up. At this time, we are not adding any new stallions. Bellagio remains our only seasoned sire, and Ducati’s first foals will hit the track this spring. The rest of our stallions are in their second year at stud.

We invite you to view our new website for more information: http://ivycreek.weebly.com

PLEASE NOTE: In an effort to prioritize serious breeders and reduce the number of Final Furlong-owned foals, we will no longer accept generic reserved spots. A specific mare must be named in order to reserve a breeding slot beginning with the 2023 breeding season. Thank you for understanding!

*More spots may open up as we consider outside stallions. Don't see what you need? Check back here for updates!

ALL STALLIONS ARE LFG AND BREEDER'S CUP NOMINATED

Anything Goes / I got MARRIED!
« on: May 18, 2017, 02:30:19 pm »
So, as many of you know, life has been a little bit of a wild ride these last few years.  I reconnected with my high school love (and his stepson, who was 5 at the time), fell in love, opted to do things a bit backwards to insure he had siblings before he became an angsty teenager (he had been begging us for siblings).  We had my daughter, Haven, then got pregnant with a second girl, all while planning a wedding for after.  Then my mom suddenly passed away, and I was the unlucky one to find her.  All plans came to a screeching halt.

Eventually, my second daughter was born, and she was named after my mother, Nola.  Baby Nola just turned 1, and has her grandmother's lovely dark curls combined with her very own bright blue eyes.  Sister Haven is nearly 3 and full of spirit, sass, and kindness.  Big brother, Damian, is now 12, and is so incredibly sweet to his sisters.

This spring, the venue we had originally been considering (prior to my mother's death) announced that they had a last minute cancellation for a Saturday in May.  I contacted them to find out more details and we ended up booking it.  I only found out later that it was also Mother's Day weekend, a date in which my mother always got all of our relatives together to celebrate at her house.  I don't think this was a coincidence.

And so, after only 2.5 months of planning, we had the most incredible, perfect day.  Everything was amazing - weather, location, food, guests...just everything.  I am over the moon.  I just wanted to share an update with my FF family.  Thank you for putting up with my crazy inactivity over these last couple of years.

We just got our video back from our photographer for anyone who wants to see:

Goodness - we are only 14 days into the new year, and we've already had 16 babies born!  Needless to say, it's been very busy at the farm.  Thankfully, everyone has arrived safe & sound so far.  Unfortunately, the first baby was a bit hasty and didn't quite make it to January...but at least he's a sturdy little fellow.

Horses For Sale / Stallion - For Sale - ICh. Sleipnir
« on: May 21, 2016, 04:39:38 pm »
A rare chance to purchase a proven stallion!

ICh. Sleipnir
2008 dark bay stallion, 15.0hh
NCh. Lucky Cigar {G} (Cigar x created) x NCh. You Belong {G} (Danzig x created)
BRONZE RATED (2.0)

ON THE TRACK, Sleipnir earned the title of 2010 2 Year Old Colt of the Year.  He placed in the top 3 in some of the most prestigious American races, including winning the Preakness, placing in the Belmont, and showing in the Kentucky Derby.  He did best in dirt sprint and classic races.
AS A SIRE, Sleipnir has produced MSWers GCh. Laevateinn and Ch. Seven Snakes from 3 crops to race.  50% are winners and 7% are stakes winners  He already has 8 winning 2YOs this year (including one stakes winner).

He's a good producer, but with 5 other active stallions and 4 more qualified to stand in the future, he just isn't getting the love and attention he deserves with me.  The rest of his breeding slots are open/unclaimed aside from 1 of my mares (which can be canceled if you prefer), so he can start covering your own mares immediately!

Asking Price: $80,000

Feel free to PM me with any questions!
