Good run at Newbury

We were very pleased with Yemeni Princess's run at Newbury only beaten 2 lengths running on. She had to be switched in the last furlong which cost her a few lengths.
All the foals  have been micro chipped on Tuesday with only minor injuries to us!!.
Methodical had her 30 day scan on which we could see a heart beat so she is well and truly in foal

All in foal

We have had all our mares that we covered scanned in foal this week.
Sempre Sorriso to Elnadim
Toleration to Byron
Methodical to Norse Dancer. 

All our foals are doing well and enjoying the milder climate will take some more pictures this week.

Yemeni Princess is due to run next saturday at newbury, so we are all looking forward to that. If you are planning to go let me know so we can meet for a drink, I drink Guiness!!!

Orphina and her new foal enjoy the sunshine. All the foals are doing very well and hopefully we can have a nice summer to help them along. We were very please with the run of Yemeni Princess last Monday. She just got caught but was giving the winner a stone in weight. We may either go to bath next Monday or Newbury the following Saturday. Our 2yo Ponte di Rosa is back cantering and we are looking forward to her running soon. We are trying to set up a new syndicate with George Foster who trains in Scotland. george used to train En Vacances so it would be nice if he trained one of the offspring.

Pictures of Plasma transfusion

New Foals transfusion

Our recent birth has had to have a plasma transfusion today. All seems to have gone to plan, just a bit stressful for everyone. The mare was running milk for 2 days before she gave birth, so the foal did not get enough antibodies from her.
