    Default SSHHH! It's a secret early christmas present to myself!

    I have been posting mainly on the Racing and eventing forums about some TB's that were abandoned (surrended) here in FL and COTHER's came thru again with not only donations of feed and money but also homes :-)

    I had already brought a mare home (TG she is not in foal) who was bred by The Aga Khan no less and from the first day I was out at the farm helping had my eye on a gorgeous colt but had nowhere to keep him at the time !

    Anyway, through a series of events the colt is now mine
    Actually I am sharing him wiht a friend as she is keeping him at her farm. If I brought another one home I would be in serious trouble, hence the "secret Christmas present " to myself.

    1st pic is my new mare (before she came home) Mandalika http://www.pedigreequery.com/mandalika



    The colt we are naming Faberge (maybe). He still needs his DNA doing but is Cloud Cover X Generous Belle .

    http://www.pedigreequery.com/generous+belle

    He is very flashy and has white behind 1 knee and in front of the other as well as stockings and big white face. Sabino right?

    Thanks for letting me share

    oops sorry for posting same photo twice

    Thank you everyone. "Fab" has settled in well but we will see what tomorrow brings when mummy leaves ! Poor baby!

    Now hoping the JC will accept all the messed up paperwork from the ex-owner who's wife and daughter not only disappeared overnight but also de-faced the JC paperwork. Lovely people NOT!

    But what ever they both have a great home where they will be appreciated
