It’s that time again….Foaling Season. Penumbra started us off by delivering on January 30 – a week early.  She delivered a beautiful redhead filly by Broken Vow weighing in at 106 pounds at 4:25 AM. Next, Diamond Stilettos delivered a good size Goldencents colt.  He showed up at 3:25 AM on Sunday, February 11, weighing 114 pounds.  As you can see, he is very flashy, with a nice big blaze and three white socks. He was in no hurry to see how his legs worked… very content to let Mom give him a thorough bath, scoot around his stall, drink a bottle  and then finally stand up. He wasn’t the youngest for long!  First Shift delivered a fiesty filly by the new stallion Upstart about 20 hours later-  at 11:30 that evening.  She was compact, but really big in spirit.  As the video shows, within 20 minutes she decided, “It’s high time I get up and eat!” Click here to see her video. She continues to show her feisty spirit when the guys pick her hooves.  She is quite willing to let them work on her front feet, but has decided her back hooves do not need their attention – thank you very much!  Once they remind her who’s in charge, she finally agrees to let them get the job done. On the 22nd, we had a filly by Goldencents, out of Golden History.  She’s a big, beautiful 138 pound filly, but watch the video and you’ll see how Momma steals the show from new baby / protects her from prying eyes.
