Most of my Owners Group horses are living quite quiet lives right now, either on their holidays or just coming back into work after their holidays. But I do have a few exciting bits of news to share with you.
The first is the on Saturday, Cupboard Love safely gave birth to her very first foal. A chestnut colt by Territories. She has been due for a while now, so I suspected it might be a colt after an old wives tale where colts tend to take a bit longer than fillies. I have been sent some lovely videos of mum and baby and they are both doing well. I am looking forward to seeing how he grows up. Cupboard Love is due to be covered by Harry Angel this year.
My other broodmare, Tambourine Girl is looking well and is due to be covered soon.
Paris Dixie hasn’t had the best of times recently. After having been quite disappointing she went to EquiPrep to have a full MOT. While she was there she had a few bouts of colic, one was serious enough that she spent a night at the veterinary hospital. It was discovered she has some quite severe stomach ulcers. She is now being treated for these and hasn’t had any colic since.
It is possible that the ulcers were not only the cause of her colic, but could also be the cause of her being a bit disappointing on the racecourse. But it has been decided that she might also benefit from a change of scenery. She will soon be moving to Anthony Honeyball’s yard. Anthony has a great success rate with mares and being a smaller yard, it could be a really good opportunity for Paris Dixie. While she has been a bit disappointing, Anthony thinks she has shown promise, especially in the Grade 2 run. So hopefully we still have some exciting things to come from her.
Chez Hans & Asdaa are still on their holidays. Genesius has started cantering so hopefully we will see him on course soon. Wouldubewell is still in training and we are hoping to get one or two more runs in before the mud dries up for the spring.
