The temperatures in Kentucky horse country are expected to drop to 7 degrees tonight with highs tomorrow only in the teens. How are the adult horses and foals, if any are born during this frigid snap, protected? Are they still turned out?

The foals born this time of year usually arrive with plenty of hair. There are heat lamps in the stalls (if needed) and plenty of foal blankets. Unless the weather (or the footing) is awful a healthy foal will usually go outside for some time each day. It's healthier for both the mares and the foals to be able to move around.

Word on the Taylor Made Facebook site is that the due date for Chrome's first foal at their farm is tomorrow, Jan. 6, but the farm managers think it will be a few more days yet. Lots of people coast to coast and all the way to Chile are eagerly awaiting the birth of his first foal.

How good are the odds for a chestnut with a blaze and a stocking or two? ;)

That would be a lot of fun. There will be joyous comments in both English and Spanish in certain corners of Facebook and Twitter, :lol:

Our little Speightster filly thinks @keenelandsales is great fun, although she'd prefer if we'd let her do what she wants. #alittlebitsassy

Very pretty. Right now she really looks like her grandsire, but I wonder if she will end up greying out like her mom?

Definitely grey. She's classically hyper-pigmented :)
