First foal by the champion Maurice(JPN) is a filly!!

That second photo...sleeping innocence. Makes me want to wrap her up and protect her from all the bad things in the world.

Looks like her bedding is recycled newspaper, does anyone know if it's industry standard in Japan to foal on it? Neat idea.

It is a neat, smart idea. Newsprint is absorbent and insulating. Possibly cost effective too.

That, or she could have an allergy to regular bedding

There was a horse at the barn I rode at that had an allergy to shavings, and one of the Winstar stallions gets a cardboard like bedding because of an allergy- I want to say POTN?

Blondz Away delivered a beautiful @WinStarFarm Tourist filly this morning. The filly checked out well with the vet & has a good, healthy appetite. Stay tuned for more photos.

No idea if it's industry standard in Japan but I know that Sha Tin in Hong Kong (used to?) use only recycled newspaper for bedding rather than straw or shavings as a clever adaptation to their geography and limited/expensive resources.

It's easy to tell which one has been a broodmare for 12 years and which one is a maiden lol.

I love it when the foals have that "What the heck just happened?!?" look. :D

First of many Exaggerators for SF Bloodstock 2018. We got on the E-Train early in play & enjoyed every G1 race hail, rain & shine. Rarely can a good horse win one G1 but #E won 3 of them at 3... A very Hardy looking colt o/o G3 winner Nikki’s SmartyPants. Her last foal made 390k.

That Exaggerator foal is a sturdy looking baby underneath all that fuzz. Looks like excellent conformation in the making.

Babies...whiskery, fuzzy, beautiful babies. In my mind I'm hugging every one of them. The War Dancer colt is really a looker. :D

much like seeing news on the 2012 The Tin Man, seeing Go Between as a mare's name is a little disorienting. :lol:
