Sakura Springs 2022 Foals
« on: February 07, 2018, 01:26:12 pm »
Well, this year has definitely started out rough. Not only are our good runners from last year struggling to keep up, but our first foal of the year was a stillborn.

Stillborn filly
ICh. Calle de Oro x Ch. Higgs Boson - NCh. Void
This was mom's first foal, so I'm hoping she doesn't keep the trend in future years. Not yet sure where I'm gonna send her for 2023.

Here's to hoping our luck only gets better from here.

Sorry to hear about your loss. Calle de Oro does come with a Live Foal Guarantee so if you wanted to try him again (or any of our other Stallions), the breeding would be free.

Calle has a possible slot available for Mar 3. There is a Starfish mare booked in that slot but, if you wanted it, I would switch her out.

Let me know what you want to do.

Thank you! I don't wanna take away anything from your mares, but I would be happy to snatch an open spot for him again if possible.

First healthy foal of the year was born yesterday!

Honeymoon
NCh. Away The Lads x Costa Marta - Rock of Gibraltar
9.1h dapple grey filly
This is mom's third filly, though last year's was stillborn, so we're happy for a healthy birth. Decided to name her Honeymoon since I'm getting married today. XD

Congratulations on your wedding and the new foal. A very appropriate name under the circumstances.

May both be major blessings for you.

Got another little girl in the barn!

National Covenant
GCh. Edinburgh x Three Chances - GCh. Steal Your Heart
9.2h dark bay filly
Name comes from the Covenanter period of Scottish history. They were a group of Presbyterians in the 16th/17th century who fought for religious freedom against the English king. They got their name from the pact they signed in 1638, known as the National Covenant.

Looks like its the year of the girls. Lol.

Spirit of Scotland
GCh. Edinburgh x Ch. Fairly Persistent (S) - Man O'War (S)
8.0h dark bay filly
Not sure I'm sold on her name yet, but this little girl is only the the second filly out of 6 foals for this mare. She's half to stakes winner He's Her Knight, who I also own and who is one of my most consistent runners despite being a one-win wonder. Lol. Fairly Persistent's foals don't seem to be terribly consistent, though, so we'll hope this little one takes more after her sire.

Aaaannnnndddd...another little girl! I'm beginning to wonder what's in the water this year. Lol. XD

Wistful
NCh. Player (S) x Wish For Ribbons - WCh. As You Wish
10.1h bay filly
This is gonna be a big girl, it looks like, since both of her parents are at or over 17hh. Wistful is her mama's first foal, so no telling how she'll do. Wish For Ribbons never hit the board in stakes races, but she was a fairly consistent runner and did set one speed record, so it'll be interesting to see how her progeny perform.
