Foaling season 2015

Foaling season is actually almost over as I write this update.  We have been busy with the new foals, as you can imagine.  Plus, I have double digit pregnancies for 2016 already.  I am insane, I think....

The naming theme is Broadway Musicals and we had to stretch it a bit for a few names.  Best Little Whorehouse in Texas was not on the list, nor was Deathtrap.  Dhetroit is named after Nathan Detroit in Guys and Dolls, and Disney is not a show but a producer, but for the most part, we stuck to the theme, and of course an "h" is the second letter of all of the names, a tradition I started in 1996, with the first foals I bred by Gold Luck.  I may have to repeat that initial theme of "Exclamatory" one of these years.



















This is how Jim feels about all of the foaling and breeding (ha-ha- he is a huge help and now handles the stallions for breeding because my knee surgery has left me a little off balance).


 In between foals we have been to a few shows.  More on that in another article. 

The foal crop is a variety pack this year sired by many different stallions, many of them using frozen semen.  I was a fertility goddess with the frozen semen pregnancies last year.  We like the Dheputy foals so much, I am breeding him to quite a few of my mares this year.  Shakespeare RSF is with Marcus Orlob in NJ in training (showing much promise for the Grand Prix) and is only available using frozen semen.  Sir James and Fhitzgerald  have been used on mares who produced well in the past with them, and we are of course collecting and shipping semen to customers.  Shakespeare RSF's second licensed stallion son Shavane (out of Dressage at Devon Grand Champion EM Rheporter) is not being collected.  We are preparing him for the 70 day stallion test which will take place in Oklahoma September 20 to November 28.  In our free time, we are mowing the lawn, planting flowers and weeding the many flower beds.  We even had time to clean out the pond and waterfall and we expect there will be many baby goldfish and frogs in a little while.  Much new life is arriving here at Rolling Stone Farm!
