Love the Frankel/Untapable picture. So cute.

I have never worked on a farm that allows the stallion any contact with the mare such as this. She is usually hobbled, twitched and tail wrapped. The stallion comes in and takes care of business, end of story. I think it's nice that they allow a bit of the more natural contact of stallion and mare before breeding. Looks like he is behind a teasing wall in the picture, understandably.

Maybe Frankel prefers to do his own 'teasing?' ;) :P

Bear’s Pearl will be bred to Bear’s Kid (Lemon Drop Kid)

An excuse to post a fun little story.

Why the fans just can’t get enough of this tiny mint-loving filly with the ‘puppy-dog’ eyes
While stakes winners get the accolades in racing, the lower-level runners are the ones keeping the sport alive on a daily basis. They can be just as beloved as their more famous counterparts, as is the case with the Woodbine Racecourse-based Bear’s Pearl.

The diminutive gray developed an international following thanks to a social media presence and the generosity of her connections, who endlessly shared her with tour groups and fans. Despite her gentle nature, Bear’s Pearl earned $404,605 the hard way, running almost exclusively in claiming races.

No-one loved her more than Joseph De Paulo, son of leading Woodbine trainer Mike De Paulo and his wife and assistant trainer, Josie.

Glad that Symm Symm is doing well. I kinda felt bad that she spent almost all of her previous life at Denali and then was sold.

It just simply amazes me how one little mare (and a cranky one, lol) can have some much influence . Champion on the track and in the shed. A rare gem indeed.
