Yippee! Indications are that the insemination of my RPSI German mare, Fargo, was successful. We will check her again in three weeks. I think Fargo is a lovely mare, standing about 16 hands.
Her breeding as the Oldenburg Rainbow’s granddaughter coupled with her strong sire Blonder Hans whose strengths are wonderful elasticity and impulsion with a brilliant jumping career should be a fine fit with the Flagmount genes we know and love so well from our own mare Feather.
Fargo has had some lovely babies in the past and we sure hope to have another next March. Personally, I am hoping that Fargo as a Palomino from a Palomino sire from a Palomino grandsire coupled with her Oldenburg grand-sire’s pinto markings might create a colorful Flagmount baby. But I do not care! Happy, healthy and sound is the ticket.
Here are some pictures of Flagmount’s Freedom-
These are shots of Flag in action. No wonder our Feather is so brave!
Truly great news to brighten the seemingly endless days of rain that we have had. We should know if our OTTB mare TeeDee is pregnant by Flag this weekend. What a delight that would be! Thanks for riding along!
