Our third (and final) foal for 2018 entered the world on Sunday 27th May. A huge bay colt by MOUNT NELSON (Rock of Gibraltar x Independence) out of our beautiful winning mare KASSIS (Kalanisi x Gastina).
He is a big, rangey colt with a great walk already and his mother's bold, inquisitive nature, the Grandchildren have named him 'George'.
Here he is, just 4 days old, investigating a daisy in the paddock.
His legs proved to be just too long to be able to reach the grass so, calling on his Irish heritage, he improvised !
Now, Just over 3 weeks old and he is flying around the paddock, stretching those long legs.
Louis (Kayf Tara x Lecon Benefique) is growing on well and turning into a really nice, friendly young man.
He enjoys a quick spin around the paddock with or without his mum. He is just over 7 weeks in these photos.
With Summer finally here, all the foals are now turned out together and are enjoying each other's company. The mares and foals are turned out at night and brought back in during the heat of the day, so Jess has been able to get some nice sunset shots.
Here is Lecon Benefique and her colt foal by Kayf Tara doing some synchronised grazing.
This pic is the 2 colt foals playing as the sun goes down. George (Mount Nelson x Kassis) on the left and Louis (Kayf Tara x Lecon Benefique) looking like a unicorn !!
And finally, we say cheerio for now to Naranja as she heads back to Jamie Snowden's Folly House yard in Lambourn with her field buddy Marlow Moss after a good couple of months R & R.
With thanks to Jessica Joubert for these lovely photographs.
