    is that because of him already being inbred to Raise a Native (3x4) or some other reason?

    In pure speculation I'd guess Rathasker were unable to provide him with the support his owners wanted from their own mares. They've taken on Es Que Love and Bungle Inthejungle for 2015.

    well one of mine is here - via an emergency c-section yesterday afternoon !!


    No name name as yet, weighed 7lbs 4 and already the recipient of as many ponies as her heart desires from various friends ( despite us already owning one!!)

    full steam ahead for grape now - Not too long for her either and weekly rug strap lengthening needed now !!

    May the light always find you on a dreary day. When you need to be home, may you find your way.
    May you always have courage to take a chance And never find frogs in your underpants.

    I'm bored/ You're an idiot and I'm poking you with sticks

    Missunited to be covered by Sea The Stars.
    Dan Hutch goes back to the Cape Cross line that put him in the money when Confucius made 165k stg as a foal on a 5k service.
    Pity he was a bit of a thinker .
    All the best to them for the future.

    Breeding and Bloodstock 2015

    FINALLY !!! Pleased to report that we now have a very bendy Arvico ex Frosted Grape colt foal on the ground.
    He was only born at 3am today, so hopefully in the next few days he will strengthen up and the loose bits will constrict and the the constricted bits will stretch to level him up. They are just that bit too flipping long at the moment !! Very happy though, and mum and baby doing well. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1428602674.990151.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1428602708.104033.jpg

    A few of you have asked how Raisin is getting on, he's a month old now and he's ok I'm heavily biased and I'm rubbish at judging youngstock, but I really like him. Grape is a really good mother as well which is a big relief, she was producing milk like a small herd of dairy cows, which was fantastic because we were able to freeze some colostrum which we donated to an orphaned foal a couple of weeks ago, so Grape's had her own and saved one, which is lovely

    I've got a Camelot and a Mastercraftsman on the ground, lost both the mare and foal with the Declaration of War foal. The Dancer mare has been covered by No Nay Never and the Darshaan tramp went to Gale Force Ten. The Oasis Dream filly is visiting Ruler of The World.
