Well, I had been looking forward to posting pictures of our mare Pendam Sally with her new foal - sadly we have heard that her colt was born dead this morning. Sally is on loan to the Taraco Stud near Canterbury and her foal was by the stunning young palomino stallion Danaway Desert Storm. For some reason the colt did not start breathing, although for a while he had a strong heartbeat - "just one of those things" as the vet said, nothing anyone could have done. We are all very sad at this outcome but thankful that Sally at least is in good health.
