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:

It looks like StreuFex, or some kind of broken down straw compound. All of Ramsey's mares foal on it, and people have asked about it a few times on their Facebook. They almost always give a thorough explanation of what it is and why they use it, but I am lazy and tired and it's too late to go look for it. :lol: But I do know that it's not dirt.

Thanks for the info. Maybe the process of breaking down the straw also provides a chance to sterilize the mixture, cutting down the likelihood of bad stuff in the straw?

That Tourist filly has the prettiest little face. Foal blankets are a great plstallion promo item, I hope all the mare owners got one.

It just looks so uck! I can't imagine a mare foaling on that, maybe they do move them onto straw for that. New foals should be curled up in a nice bed of straw. Mares at the farm I work at foal on a bed of straw about a foot deep, stay in the foaling stall for a day or two, then go to a stall with deeply bedded shavings.
