Isn't it also possible that a breeder doesn't want to make a public (or even a private) judgement about how "crooked" a foal is, since so much changes on these newborns as they grow? Today's wonky legs may grow straight as an arrow in a month or two. :P :D

Between Shackleford and Kitten's Joy, no surprise the colt is a chestnut with a big blaze. ;)

Hilda's Passion, the mother of american group race winner Yoshida, foaled a charming filly by Duramente. On her first day outside we had freezing weather with almost -20℃, so the mother put the straw on her baby.

:::high pitched squeeing noises:::

Also today is the one-month birthday for Stopchargingmaria '18, from the foal patrol live cam. They posted a little vid clip of her spunking it up in the paddock with her mama. <3

Pin Oak Stud
25 mins ·
This past week we were thrilled to welcome this son of Runhappy into the world!

His dam, Always in My Heart, was a homebred for Pin Oak (as were her dam and granddam) and hit the board 13 times, including several stakes/graded stakes placings, in her 18-race career. She was always a thrill to watch on the track, especially when she won the Sam Houston Distaff in her final start, and is from the same family as our boy, Broken Vow.

Isn’t this the best time of year!!?

It really is. So touching and heartwarming. So is the barely born photo of the Chrome x American Farrah filly. Ah, foals...sometimes just seeing photos like these lifts my spirits.

On the Foal Patrol cams, La Verdad is live & streaming (the farm was briefly without electricity due to the big storm). She's been moved into a foaling stall and has shown wax on her udder so they're saying in the next few days!

Oh, exciting. I've been checking in on those mares and foals daily. Will be nice to see a new one.

So excited! I was wondering if she went offline because they were moving her to a foaling stall. I hope more farms add mares after she and Memento foal. I've got my office co-workers, who are total non-horse people, hooked on Foal Patrol. I get texts after hours with "oh did you see that??" and "why is she doing this?" and "what does this mean?" It's been a lot of fun educating them and they're very keen to see one of the births, so they'll be watching La Verdad closely for labor signs I've told them about. :D
