Thank you to Linda Madsen and Milky Way Farm. I didn’t think we would ever get a baby from her.
Backwoods Belle a full sister to multiple graded stakes winner Pee Wee Reese is now very proud mama of this fine strapping colt by Graydar.
Think he might like the turf? pic.twitter.com/7B7heMPsZQ

The farm here is on the same road as a busy quarry, so lots of lorries rumble by. I turn all the young foals out in paddocks beside the road, as so much harmless commotion is great mental conditioning for them. They soon pay no heed. Horses raised here don’t spook too easily! pic.twitter.com/2RekdzbJ3k

Meet “Come Together” a colt foal by Kitten’s Joy & another full brother to “Crossfirehurricane” & 1/2 to “My Generation”. Their mother Louvakhova imparts an extra dose or two (or three) of desire. This guy is more of the same! @HillnDaleFarm @AntoinDeLeis @JosephOBrien2 pic.twitter.com/qfyDGBZMqn

Sharp CATALINA CRUISER 1/2 brother to champion 3yo Lookin at Lucky. Great effort for a 22yo mare. We discussed fostering this foal to let the mare retire in peace but decided against, all she wants to do is look after this menace. Catalina must be a serious value proposition sire pic.twitter.com/ULESgcIjUw

Bonus Cute Animal of the Week:
Every week we feature another adorable animal in addition to our cute foals. Yesterday was International Carrot Day so this was definitely the clear winner for the spot this week.
As it’s #InternationalCarrotDay, any excuse to post this video of Lalor and Bella Woollacott at snack time
