June Update

Here a New Perth Farms we are finished foaling for the year 2010 ! It is always a big thrill and a relief to have all the foals on the ground. This year was four colts and then a filly. The filly from our jumper bred mare came two weeks early but completely developed. Her hair coat and ears look like a full term foal and she is up on her pasterns. We were concerned because Vuzarma had uddered early but she delivered a healthy filly with out problems. this filly is the twenty fourth foal for us. She has no name yet but is has to start with "F" and will likely have "zarma" at the end to indicate the mare line. Fuzarma, Fazarma, Fezarma ??? None of them exactly have the ring you would want from the announcer.

We have started breeding for 2011 and have bred five mares. Of these three have checked pregnant and one is ready to check next week and one was bred last week end. Both the mares that did not foal this year , Tango/Purioso and Idocus/ Quattro , are now pregnant for next year. We normally breed on thew heat after the foal heat. With frozen semen there is no need to complicate life by trying to get pregnancies on the foal heat. However it is impossible to have an earlier foaling if we do not breed on the foal heat.
