July update

July has been a busy month here at New Perth Farms. All the foals are on the ground and healthy. the last foal was our jumper bred Verdi from the Hamlet mare who we will call Fizzarma.

We have five mares checked pregnant at this time.
Jazz/Zeoliet back to Contango
Welt Hit II back to Sandreo
Idocus/Quattro to Sandreo
Tango/Purioso to Johnson
Jet Set/Harrem to Johnson

The Floristan mare is also bred to Johnson but not long enough to check and the plan is to breed the Hamlet mare to Eldorado.

Bagatelle NPF has been sold. She was in training in Virginia with Martha and has been sold to North Carolina.
