I'm down to waiting on 6 overdue mares and waiting for anyone to foal early, as our next on-time mare isn't due until the 29th.

PAINTED PINK, 9.3h dark bay filly
NCh. Painted Raven x Meldoniel (B) - WCh. King David (B)
Fourth foal for her dam, she is half to all winners including SP Romantica. Her dam is half to MSW Ch. Silent Lightning and from the same damline as MSW's GCh. As You Please, Ch. Maybach, and Ch. Candyland (dam of MSW Ch. Bubblicious). Meldoniel has been sold.

8 Colts | 7 Fillies | 0 Stillborn -- 73 due
(Somehow I keep forgetting how to count so numbers should be correct now).

FINALLY. A week later on waiting for half a dozen late mares to foal and at least someone came through. The others...well.

WILD ARUM, 9.0h chestnut filly
NCh. French Ruby x Ch. Wild Countess - Count Fleet (S)
Originally due January 4th, Wild Arum is the second foal for her MSW dam. On the track she won 280k and set 2 SC speed records, so this little girl is definitely bred for a 3yo+ SC career! Wild Countess is half to GCh. Hearts Are Wild and Wild Highland (dam of 2 MSW producing daughters). Wild Countess will visit Quintet next.

PUPPET SHOW, 9.0h dark bay colt
GCh. Venture His Due x Mystic Love (B) - NCh. Fleet Street (G)
Only 2 weeks late...actually surprised he's not bigger with that much extra incubation + his dam is 17.2. Maybe he'll have a late growth spurt! Mostly unproven damline, but I like Fleet Street as the damsire. Mystic Love was bred on a lease.

PINK CHAMPAGNE, 9.1h black filly
NCh. Too Stressful x Ellenai - ICh. What's Your Point
I was a little nervous when Ellenai ran late (12 days total), being a maiden mare, but all was fine! Ellenai is half to SW Grandiose Castle and SP's Ch. Saramenha and Rocinante. She will visit Blue Smoke for 2023.

Nice filly! :) (FYI maiden mares have a greater chance of foaling early or late because hey, they don't know what's going on, lol.)

Our most overdue mare finally foaled at 20 days over. First foal for Highland Flower, who set 2 speed records at SC. Highland Flower is half to Rings of Saturn (silver), Fleur's Debate (gold), NCh. Nightshade (gold), and Indy Bride (silver). She will visit French Ruby for 2023.

SWEEP, 9.0h brown colt
NCh. Hogwarts x Ch. Magickal Rites - Ch. Irish River (G)
The last overdue foal finally arrived! Named after a YA witch series I was obsessed with in my younger teen days (and a rough reference to broomsticks), Sweep is the fourth foal for his dam. Magickal Rites set a speed record going 15.5f turf, and scored her only stakes win at 7f turf. From the same family as MSW GCh. Silent Thunder, Ch. Tokugawa, and Ch. Tie Me Up. She will visit Frankel for 2023.

Love Sweep.
Me too! Sweep for me, was a hand puppet character from the '50s (showing  my age here). Called the Sooty and Sweep show, Sooty was a little bear and Sweep was  a little dog Sooty's sidekick!
