2011 Auld Macdonald Farm Foals

We are expecting four foals this year; two purebred Arabians, one Half Arabian and one purebred American Saddlebred.

The first baby, due April 28, is our American Saddlebred sired by Famous Echo SCA out of Amber's Mayday. Because Famous Echo is homozygous for pinto the foal will have a tobiano pinto pattern.

Our Half Arabian is due a week later on May 5th. The Arabian mare, MAF Last Dance ("Mona"), has had six foals all sired by now our palomino American Saddlebred stallion Goldmount Royal Design. This one is number seven and the third that we've owned.

May 10, or there about, "Addie" (NR Adieu) will have her purebred foal sired by Conway Arabians' stallion, Noble Way.

We gave ourselves a bit of a breather before welcoming Renoir's foal out of Not That Innocent ("Inno"), pictured below, due Memorial Day Weekend.
