Mares and foals.

There are a lot of ups and down in horse breeding but one of the greatest "ups" is seeing a group of horses grazing on pasture. this is the view from our living room and a lot of good time is wasted watching the foals play. We now have five of the six expected foals. Yesterday was the arrival of the third Sandreo filly of the year from our Welt Hit II mare. We only have one mare to go wtih the Hamlet mare due to Eldorado early in July.

Two year olds

We moved the two year olds to the pasture on the hill today as part of the shuffel to make room for mares with new foals. They gave us quite a show. Three of them have been sold but still board here at new Perth Farms.

Foal names

We have had two of our expected six foals here at New Perth farms. This is the "G" year for KWPN registrations.

The first foal was a colt from Zinosa (Tango/ Purioso) by the Jazz son Johnson. This gives us double Jazz in his pedigree as Tango is also a Jazz son. Zinosa's pedigree is at http://www.paardenfokken.nl/pedigree.php?horseid=285189 We are extremenly pleased with this colt and should have some more video of him later in the week. We have decided on a name, Great Gatsby NPF.

The second foal was a dark bay filly from Virtual Rose, (Idocus/Quattro/Cocktail). She is quite elegant and has many of the features we see in our Sandreo offspring which include a very pretty head and neck and light in their movement. With the mare lines we like to carry the name of the mare line foreward. "Vy" has an interesting pedigree which can be seen at http://www.paardenfokken.nl/pedigree.php?horseid=397742 We have named the filly Gypsy Rose NPF
