Introducing our new foal and the winner of our foaling contest is...

Okay, I've finally managed to go through all the entries to determine who indeed won the Gift Certificate. Congratulations go to Kate Shoemaker! She got the date and the sex right (the sex was a no brainer, eh Kate <lol>) although she didn't get the color correct.

So, I'd like to introduce Beetlejuice d'Avalon. Sorry if you hate the name...we've got a theme going here <lol>. His mom, Morticia, has produced Edward Scissorhands (by Escudo II) who will be presented for his stallion inspection this year and Morticia is being bred back for a repeat foal. She has also produced Dracula d'Avalon (by Davidor) and now Beetlejuice. . Now...if she'd JUST produce a filly!

We've got three more mares due this year and all of them are within 3 weeks of each other. We'll put up a new contest in the next few days. I've just got to get everyone's breeding dates together and put together what the prizes will be. I've got a cool goodie basket I'm putting together <grin>.

Oh...baby is less than 24 hours old in the photos

Beautiful! He is quite the looker. Good luck with the filly, I wonder if some mares just have colts like some women only have boys? (me) haha

You are my hero for those names. It's one thing to name them for local show ponies, it's a whole nother thing to have them on such prominent breeding! Kudos from me for thinking outside the box, I love the name!

<smile>...Thank you everyone. I think naming a horse that has the potential to be "out there" is a tough call! Especially if we're looking at one having the potential of being a stallion prospect - Both Edward Scissorhands and Dracula d'Avalon are stallion prospects and who doesn't think Johnny Depp isn't gorgeous? <lol>...But, a name has to be something memorable too! There are so many Donner and Feiner and Fuerst (we breed warmbloods) that they become hard to remember. Beetlejuice is just so darn sweet and cute, it's been fun messing around with him <smile>. I'll post some new photos in the next few days and I'll figure out the dates of breeding on the other mares so we can do our new contest!!!

Coffeegod (love THAT name <LOL>), no Lydia yet...have Elvira in the "saved" pile...someone else suggested "Exorcist". Morticia is being bred back to Escudo II this year for a 2012 full sibling to Edward Scissorhands :).

You'll have to breed to a J stallion at some point for a Jack Skellington!

Elvira for a 2012 filly, Ed Wood for a 2012 colt! LOL I'm a Tim Burton/Johnny Depp fiend!
