    Looking more closely Kev they could be older then 2yos so early indications are definately dissapointing but the sample size of the data is still small enough to not be relevant. A statistician would say the sample size for pretty much every cross is too small to be relevant. I'll go out on a limb and say I'd prefer to see SBSW mares with stallions with Direct Scooter in there lines as American Ideal and Rock n Roll heaven do, but with the strength of the mares and maternal families SBSW was bred over his daughters in time will become good producers with a range of sires.

    I think that he will be as Kev said a "black pearl". I hope he is a non fading black for you Kev, I've had a couple of blacks in the past but they were the fading variety and ended up a washed out yellowy brown by the end of summer each year, rugged or not!

    That little guy is the cutest! I said it before, I'll say it again no doubt: Black horses are the best!

    I think we still have a few due Kevin. Nivea Franco, Eliza are two I know for sure. Provided they're born before Dec 18 so I don't have to get up for the foal alarm!

    Well it's been a tough 4 odd days here...a day and a half after our first colt was born I found his Mother dead in the paddock..couldn't believe it..she was doing so well and she's not a person horse so I didn't want to pester her. The colt was on all fours trying to suckle when I got to him...I thought I would lose him..managed to get some formula into him while we jumped on facebook looking for a foster mum..a lady in nearby Katanning responded and said that she had a friendly quarterhorse mare with a 5 week old foal on her..I had already tried a couple of my mares to no avail..and I was sceptical that this would work too...so we had to try and to my utter surprise she accepted him immediately!!..we did put a towel over him with the smell of her foal and some urine..What an amazing mare!!..so lucky..but yes still a way to go but it's looking positive...a photo of the boy with his new Mum!!!
