Yes, that does appear to be beer

He had to be bottle fed when he was very young when Maggy Hawk became ill, perhaps that was the best thing they could find to use at the time.
Could be- thought that it was odd it looked like a beer bottle- you have to use what you have on hand.

HDG was a gorgeous baby! And look at the butt on her. I've seen QH foals with less bountiful booty.

I know the angle is bad but what do those that know more than I, think about Z13?

Couldn't say if I know more than you and wouldn't assume so, but I think Z13 has looked very classy from day one. If his classy quality translates to on-track performance, look out world. We have roughly 18 months still to wait for his racing debut, if not longer, but I'm looking forward to that already.

We can't ever forget him...his blood is in the majority of all runners today! He will always be my fav success story. From his days on the track to the shed. Slew was the man.
