I love they allow them to foal outside.


I do as well. Claiborne does it from what Ive seen as well as another farm in FL- cant remember the name. As long as there are no former/immediate birthing issues- its the best.
Most of the main farms have had a baby born in the field at least once a year- mares are sneaky, mysterious creatures :D

Glen Hill? Most of their mares appear to foal outside in Ocala.

When we rode at Adena Springs, one of their maiden mares foaled outside, right next to the fence. The foal rolled under the fence and was ~loose~ (not that it went anywhere too fast) and the mare was so surprised/shocked about this new "giving birth" concept that she hightailed away from the foal and went right to the paddock gate. Everything worked out just fine within the hour, but poor mama and baby were both very much caught by surprise!

Yep! And what a great story! Ive seen maiden mares give that "Omg, what just came out of me?!" look. 9 times out of 10- the mommy calling kicks in.

Who will Black Caviar be bred to for her 2018 foal? I had heard talk that it was going to be American Pharoah.

They said when she foaled this year they weren't sure if they were going to breed her back for a 2018 foal. Either way, they will probably keep quiet about it. So many people have bitched and cried every time she is bred. PETA also did an article about how terrible her owners are for breeding her. After that article the owners came out with their own article about how BC likes being a mom and they would only treat the mare right. Anyway since then, I think they stopped announcing who she was going to be bred to. The More Than Ready breeding wasn't announced until December when she was confirmed in foal. I guess if they bred her we will find out if there is a press release that she is in foal.
