It’s March and the Madness has started.

It’s March and the Madness has started.

The starting 5 are on the ground and the 7 players yet to arrive will be produced by the mares watching at left. Mares will, as we all know, produce the added players when they are darn well ready! We’ve had five babies so far and the mares have been very considerate with their foaling times, unusual but very nice that they all delivered before midnight. At Point Guard = Flame Mingo ’22 Goldencents filly out of Flame Mingo Flame Mingo was the first to foal on March 12th only 7 days past her due date.  She started nesting just after dinner. She ate all of her dinner which made us think she wasn’t really thinking about having her baby too soon.  But her water broke at 9:40 p.m. and within 10 minutes she had a cute Goldencents filly.  The filly has a beautiful wide blaze as you can see and was up within the hour.  It was a really cold night so she was glad when we turned the big heater on so she could get nice and toasty.  We’ve nicknamed her Flamingo.  Power Forward Position = Caradini ’22 Candy Ride filly out of Caradini The next night Caradini decided it was time to have her baby.  She was only two days past her due date which was typical for her.  After coming in about 4:00 p.m. she unlike Flame Mingo, did not eat her dinner.  She nibbled on a little hay and was quite agitated. Her water broke at 8:54 p.m. and 13 minutes later delivered a filly by Candy Ride.  We may have to nickname her...
