Lovely. I'm glad they sent her to More Than Ready; he's a fantastic sire.

Look at this handsome colt... American Pharoah x Beautician

Runnymede Farm

We are firm believers in letting our horses grow strong on the land, taking in the nutrients in nature and running to develop their limbs. Yet at the same time, we also believe in giving them lots of TLC so they can be confident in what they do and perform to their best when handled by people in their future careers. This picture of Peter Callahan's American Pharoah colt born on April 14 to his Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies' runner-up Beautician sums up our approach and our dedication to raising our foals in the best way we can. Bryce Pinson just loves this colt, as is plain to see. We are so fortunate to have such outstanding team members as Bryce nurturing our mares and foals. (Photo taken in the summer)

Oh my heart...he is gorgeous. And those eyes! That teacup muzzle! Did an Arabian slip into the breeding shed when they weren't looking? :lol:

Miss Finland (AUS) thrilled her owners by producing this Deep Impact colt 2 days ago in Australia.

I do as well. Claiborne does it from what Ive seen as well as another farm in FL- cant remember the name. As long as there are no former/immediate birthing issues- its the best.
Most of the main farms have had a baby born in the field at least once a year- mares are sneaky, mysterious creatures :D

Glen Hill? Most of their mares appear to foal outside in Ocala.

When we rode at Adena Springs, one of their maiden mares foaled outside, right next to the fence. The foal rolled under the fence and was ~loose~ (not that it went anywhere too fast) and the mare was so surprised/shocked about this new "giving birth" concept that she hightailed away from the foal and went right to the paddock gate. Everything worked out just fine within the hour, but poor mama and baby were both very much caught by surprise!

Yep! And what a great story! Ive seen maiden mares give that "Omg, what just came out of me?!" look. 9 times out of 10- the mommy calling kicks in.

Who will Black Caviar be bred to for her 2018 foal? I had heard talk that it was going to be American Pharoah.

They said when she foaled this year they weren't sure if they were going to breed her back for a 2018 foal. Either way, they will probably keep quiet about it. So many people have bitched and cried every time she is bred. PETA also did an article about how terrible her owners are for breeding her. After that article the owners came out with their own article about how BC likes being a mom and they would only treat the mare right. Anyway since then, I think they stopped announcing who she was going to be bred to. The More Than Ready breeding wasn't announced until December when she was confirmed in foal. I guess if they bred her we will find out if there is a press release that she is in foal.

Has anyone seen any photos of the American Pharoah X Spain colt? I'd do nearly anything to see them.
Thanks!
