Well, What's Honor managed to scrape by 12AM before delivering a fine dark bay colt for us.

The Time Lord, Tiznow-What's Honor, by WCh. What's Debatable (S)
Named in honor of David Tennant's run as the Doctor he's a good 8.1hh and a spirited fellow. What's Honor will be bred back to NCh. Call To War.

I literally shrieked, "It's a girl!"  ::)

The manager was making her midnight rounds and found this gorgeous dark bay girl with our monster truck-sized maiden mare Glory's Jewel.

To An Athlete, by No Duplicate (S)-Glory's Jewel, by Sweet Glory.
We named her after the poem "To An Athlete Dying Young" by A. E. Housman. If it was a boy we might have named him "Michael Phelps" but...

Glory's Jewel is booked to Rahy for her 2015 foal.

Bad news from the foaling barn: Magical Stone lost her foal, a colt by the now-retired NCh. Moonover Boy. She's a bit baffled right now, but she's taking it better than we expected.

Stone is shipping to Kentucky for a date with Giant's Causeway. Fingers crossed for a healthy foal next year.

Thank you. Much appreciate your kind words.


In other news, new baby in the barn! UR A Shining Star is a tiny dark bay daughter by NCh. I'm A Classic (S)-Party For One, by Lonesome Glory (S). She is a 3/4 sibling to blacktype runner Ch. Classic Party, so fingers are crossed that this match proves golden. Party is shipping for a date with NCh. Void.

They're all dark bays! Who'd have thought... ::)

We're being overrun by estrogen!

In the wee hours of Father's Day Icy Honor finally dropped her foal - Rahy On The Rocks, by the red hot sire Rahy (of course). Seeing how so many of her half-siblings have names inspired by cocktails and what not, I thought I'd go along with the theme. She's a well-sized blood bay with a white stripe and four white feet; she's blingin'!

Icy Honor will return to Final Furlong.

OMG that is a SUPER cute name! Congrats!  I would rather have too many fillys than too many colts so yay for you! :)

Thank you! The name's been on my list since last year; boy or girl that was the name.  :)

The boys are catching up as foaling season at RC Bee winds down in early summer.

Auction purchase and created mare DreaminofAngels foaled a BIG dark bay colt (the fourth, I believe, in our current crop of five) by Alley Cat - Little Lion Man. I was going to name him "Dream Cat" but felt that was too much in the tradition of Storm Cat and his get, and inspiration struck when my playlist threw out "Little Lion Man" by Mumford & Sons so I named him after the song. He might end up at the sales or I might keep him and race him.

His giant of a mommy is going to visit As You Wish.
