    Default My FIRST Homebred Foal!! :)

    I am SOOO excited to announce the birth yesterday on 5/5/2010 of my very first homebred baby. He is by my stallion Contempo (Contender x Polydor) out of Galaxi (Graf Grannus x TB). He has straight legs and is healthy and happy. As a bonus, he is a colt, and a dark bay with chrome!! I couldn't be more excited and had to share with my COTH friends.

    Some of you will remember all my unsuccessful efforts at getting mares in foal, and also Contempo's long road to become a successful show horse, now at 1.30m, and being blind in one eye, so to see this foal is SO wonderful for me. Thanks for letting me brag.

    It still amazes me that they come out of those mares and then there they are! Congrats to you!
