My Hohenstein mare presented us with a beautiful baby boy tonight at the relatively civilized hour of 11 pm. This is her first and I am very proud of her as she handled everything like a pro.
I am thrilled with the colt (okay, he looks like a grasshopper like they do the first day -- but a fancy one!). He is bay with two white socks behind, and a big star and large snip like his sire.
Any suggestions for colt names starting with S are much appreciated (mom's name is Hofdame, which means Court Lady in German, aka Arabella).
I will post photos soon. Of course the battery in my digital camera was dead tonight; I should have listened to my husband and charged it yesterday : ).
Ummmm... Well, I really have to see the baby before I can think of a name for him. But, Congratulations... I am SURE he is lovely. Love the lines and can't wait for pics... I will be thinking of names.

Congratulations YL, did you foal her out yourself??
No, I love my mare too much to subject her to that ; ). Dr. DelVento gets the credit for this baby. He did an awesome job. Shakira, my Sandro Hit, is up next; she is due with a Rousseau baby April 9th.
Thanks for all the congrats. I am going to try to get some pics today.
Congratulations on your new little guy. He sounds very handsome from the description. Pictures would be nice. Big coincidence: There is a Trakehner mare by Hohenstein imported about a year ago whose name is SPS + PS Hofdame; she has had one or two foals though. At first glance, I thought it was the Trakehner mare you were talking about.
