welp, based on the date, most baby pics are done til the southern hemisphere starts foaling.
with that in mind, yeah, the last few pages are gonna be keeping an eye on the later foals. i'm not being sarcastic, but this is what i remember from past years - we hit baby season, flooded with the best pictures, then it's down to waiting for news on the later babies. this year, we have higher video reporting activity, otherwise it's just normal.

I would like to thank everyone who has posted in this thread, either with information or photos or both. While I haven't posted, I have lurked every single day, just to keep updated.

A few months ago, a very close friend died unexpectedly. This was her favorite time of year, when we see such promise for the future. She was especially fond of California Chrome, and I know she would have been delighted to see his offspring looking so wonderful. As hard as this spring has been, she would have been the first to remind me that life does, indeed, go on, and we should cherish each broodmare, each foal, each moment.

So thanks once again to everyone, especially those who posted such sweet photos. I am in your debt forever.

Very sweet of you to post this, shenanigans. I'm so sorry you lost your close friend. Please know this is the reason why I go looking for baby foal pictures to post, and it is my very favorite time of year too. It really does remind us about the circle of life, and new life is to be celebrated with all its hopes and dreams. I can never feel down when I am looking into the eyes of a new foal and mare meeting for the very first time. Take care.

Shenanigans, please accept my most sincere condolences for the loss of your dear friend. I wish there was an answer for that kind of pain, but know only too well that even time really doesn't heal it. All time does is give us space to learn to live with it and cope.

I'm delighted to hear that your friend especially was fond of Chrome. Nearly all of the foals that we have been privileged to see photos and/or videos of are quite lovely. A great many of them strongly resemble him, even those from bay and gray mares. In honor of your friend, here is a photo of Chrome's filly out of Colerful Bride. She was born on April 14th. This is the baby who lost her right eye, but as this photo shows, it has not slowed her down one bit. She is a loving little one who already has a huge fan base.

Many thanks to you both, and Ridan_Remembered, a special thanks for that photo. My late friend would have adored that filly, not least because of what she has gone through. If there is a heaven, that little one has a huge fan up there. And of course she can count on me to root her through whatever her life holds for her.

When you go through difficult times like this, you discover that the kindness of strangers means more than you could ever have imagined. Thank you once again.

I wonder if she'll be bred again. She's getting up there in years.

There's a new little Pharoah in the world & he's as special as they come. Sacre Coeur, the dam of champion Lady Eli and our own MGSW Bizzy Caroline, delivered a colt by Triple Crown winner American Pharoah over the weekend and he is a very handsome boy. What a fabulous way to conclude our foaling season!

I love his face marking!
Late foal it's true but Mucho Macho Man was born June 15th and I think he did pretty well for himself :)

Yes! Although I can't be the only one who is amused by the fact Tapit's son is a Chestnut whilst AP's daughter is a grey :lol:

Here's an update on the orphaned colt in the story that was posted further upthread who ended up finding a nursemare through twitter. The two are now fully bonded.
