My Redwine / Faux Finish foal has arrived!!!

My lovely Faux Finish mare had a gorgeous buckskin??? or smoky brown??? filly yesterday morning by the fabulous Oldenberg stallion - Redwine

She foaled down in PA at Hunters Peak Farm and Jill said that she is a VERY big filly, very leggy and tall with a fabulous neck and shoulder and a gorgeous dished face. Jill has seen a lot of foals born of her own and clients and when working as a vet tech and she said there isnt a thing on this filly she would like to change or see different on her - that she is a very very nice filly, so with Jill saying that - I am thrilled that she is a very special filly indeed!

Here are a few pictures of her "wet" and firstborn:

and a few from when she has dried out:

and:



She has the 2 hind socks and the star, a thin stripe down her face and a little white snip on her nose

The verdict is still out as to whether she is buckskin or smoky brown, but we do know that we have the first and only dilute Redwine foal out there so I am really really thrilled with this gorgeous girl and am looking forward to seeing pictures of her outside, once she has unfolded ...

Any and all name suggestions would be VERY gratefully accepted! It *should* start with "R" but my sister also came forward with "Finished the Wine" which I really like and then I thought we could call her "Lush" as a barn name ...

Wow! Congrats!
I like the name Finished the Wine, too, but what is the mare's name?
If she turned out to be a smoky, You could do Smokey Wine.
The "wet" pics, she looks brown-ish, but after she's dry, she looks like a buckskin. I vote buckskin!

She is beautiful! Don't suppose you fancy exporting her to England for free ? A stunning foal, I'm going to have to save up for one of yours for the future!

You shouldn't have told me she was this close to me...now I'm going to go on a road trip and scour the state and steal them!! (Jk) But seriously...gorgeous filly! I'm glad mom and baby are good and you BETTER post a lot of pictures!

I love that name but I would just make it Finish the Wine instead of Finished but that's just me.

thunderhooves - the dam's name is Faux Finish ...

My BIG hesitation in using the Finish (or Finished) the Wine name, is that a few days ago I received an enquiry from the Middle East on her that is very much legit. They are looking at several Guaranteed Gold youngsters as well. Being a Muslim country she would be exported to, literally a name like that could squash any deals going into that part of the world so I have to be careful, until they step forward or back away, to not possibly offend them with a name like that

Crazy what you have to think about even in naming, isnt it?!

I'm confused...... So saying Finish or Win in a name will ofend them?

It's the reference to alcohol, very taboo in Muslim countries.

You're going to have to get more pictures for us!

You're killing me here girl! I think this was the number one foal I was waiting to see this season - can't wait to see more! Your expertise when selecting breeding pairs is absolutely beyond par with anyone else I know, I cannot wait to see this girl grow up. I sure hope she doesn't get exported, but I guess that would mean everything to your farm to have big names all over the world!

Gorgeous filly, huge congrats to you both! And some names:

Rinse With Wine
Radiant Finish
Raising The Bar
Rare Nectar
Reaper Of Gold
Reckless To The End
Reigning Red
Rhapsody In Time
Ribbons And Rockets
Request The Wine

I'm not overly pleased with any of them, none seem to truly suit her, but maybe you can mix and match a bit.
