    Default Foal Class of 2008 – Check in here

    Now that the kids are reaching their first birthdays, I thought it would be fun to see how they’ve changed compared to their baby pics on the 2008 COTH Foals page.

    How about we post up a pic on their 1st birthday?

    I think that sounds like a great plan, as long as I can take pictures in April, Belle Starr's birthday, instead of showing Her Mudiness today. I can barely tell what color she is!

    I'm all for that. My guy won't be a year old until next month (and hopefully clean by then) so I'll take a pic then.

    Maybe we can even talk Julie into adding them to the website. I love going back and looking at all those baby faces!

    Ok, here's the first one of ours. He won't officially be 1 until the 12th. Of course he's mostly white so he's dirty...and wooly.

    More to come as they approach their 1 year mark!

    Silvation - my little boy that almost died at a week old. He's now being fit to show on the line and looks like a million bucks! I did this video today. He was blessed by the lead-change fairy!

    As most of you know, my little guy had colic surgery a week before his first birthday.

    he is home and doing great.

    He was born Feb. 23rd 2008.

    He is about 15 hands right now and should be about 16.3.

    His mom is Golden Grace by Candi's Gold and is 15.3
    His dad is Roc USA by Idocus, mom by Galoubet


    First picture is one week old, second picture is 1 month old and third picture is right before his surgery with his mommas bridle on. Last picture was on his birthday after he got home from the hospital.

    Since we're finally having some nice weather (actually it's too warm at 70 degrees!), I went out this morning and took pics of the kids. Here they are all woolly and butt-high - The Hotline filly and Johnson colt will be 1-year old next month while the OO Seven colt and Sinatra Song filly won't have their first birthday until June.

    Dolce Vita - Sinatra Song
    Divo - Johnson
    Dateline - Hotline
    Daimler - OO Seven

    Enjoy!

    Yearling Name: Folie a Deux
    Sire/Dam: Futurist/Final Deal
    Birthdate: 06/01/2008
    Current Height: Getting big!!! haven't sticked her, but I'd say maybe 12-ish hands? between a small and medium pony.

    She was a twin (the other one didn't make it ), but she's a feisty little thing and was determined to survive. Fed her her first meal/colostrum out of a Coke bottle because Finale had been "leaking" her own out for 2 weeks. She's been wonderful this past year and I can't wait to work with her! She got trailered across the country (NC to CO) when she was 2 and a half months old and loaded on the trailer each day like she'd been doing it all her life. When a tire blew, she couldn't have cared less. Just chilled in the trailer like "what? no biggie!" Folie looks like a clone of her mama and acts like it too. When Finale's breeder told me she had the dominant genes, man was she right!
    She has to have surgery in a couple weeks to clip her check ligaments... she just grew too quickly for her little front legs to keep up when she was ~ a month old and hasn't settled down on her heel. But she's wonderful and I think she's the greatest thing ever
    As for her name... "Folie a deux" is a psych term for a "Crazy/delusional idea shared by two people," and since it described her and her sister's insane idea to come into the world together, it fit in a nice way to honor her sister. Sorry for the novel... she's my first baby and I love talking about her... haha

    All your babies look like real horses. My filly looks like 10 different horses put together and I am too ashamed to post anything but a picture of her face (thought I have some conformation pictures, she just looks hideous).

    I am going to agree with hca86......way too yaky just now!

    LockeMeadows, how did you get your guy so fit and slick??? Has he been clipped? I am going to take my '08 Fabulex filly out to a few shows this spring. Any yak to slick in 60 days advice?

    Below are some rough photos from yesterday. Please excuse his coat. He participated in a handling clinic and got sweaty as it was unseasonably warm, and he still has his full winter coat.

    Yearling Name: Belmont
    Sire/Dam: Balta'Czar / Rideau Bend Southern Belle (Saddlebred)
    Birthdate: June 7th 2008
    Current Height: I last measured him at 8 months and a bit, and he was 13.3hh at the withers and 14hh behind. Expected to mature 16hh-16.1hh.

    This is the fugliest he's been so far this winter, and I'm STILL not ashamed to show him off, he's still lovely! I adore this little man. He's 9 months old now, and he just wore his first bridle on the weekend. Totally non-plussed, we walked up the laneway and down the road for 15 minutes, his halter on over top his bridle. I've been handwalking him off property since he was weaned, and he's at a different facility now for a month (they have an indoor), and I've been donig the same - handwalking him off the property and down the road. Just like my previous homebred, this one will be bombproof by the time he's 3. I can't wait!!
