New foals are so exciting! There’s nothing quite like the anticipation and the guessing game that comes with a pregnant mare. Plenty of long conversations will be had in the barn isle with everyone sharing their two cents to whether you’ll be getting a colt or a filly and what kind of color and markings you’ll end up with. I’ve always admired the breeders who have the knowledge to put quality horses on the ground and the strength to send them out in the world and on to new adventures. I can’t wait to see what the foal crop of 2015 goes on to do.

Also, Kentucky Derby today, I’m having a hard time deciding if I’m putting my money on American Pharoah or one of the feisty longshots like Frosted.
