Congrats to the Ladies…

Congratulations to Roofie, Sprite, and Coral!!  Each have successfully had their own little bundles of joy in the last few days…

Roofie, one of my all time favorite mares to ride, had a gorgeous dark bay colt with one hind sock and a big snip during the clinic on Saturday morning at 12:34am.   The delivery was impeccable–this guy is strong!   The entire delivery was finished in 30 minutes, including foal standing and nursing and afterbirth….  The marker for a successful delivery is if all of that happens within three hours!  By 2:30, he was cantering laps around his stall!  This is Ryan’s FIRST BORN!!!!   He is gorgeous… What to name him? It has to have the word “Night” in it.

Three down, two to go!

  1. Night of Dreams
    Dreaming Tonight
    If it was a filly, you could name her Night Mare :o)
    Night Vision
    Summer Night
    That’s all the creativity I can come up with after baling hay with the kids for 3 days! Must get some farm hands soon!

    His name is JUNIOR — he’s a pint sized twin of Nightfall. Barn name — J.R.

    • How about Night”stand”, the opposite of NightFALL ! Ha!
      Junior? Oh Howard, you can come up with something better than that.
      Nightfall II ?

        Night Stand is a pretty cute name, but I am sure it is only a matter of time (and of course after he WINS 1st at all his horse trials) before he becomes 1 Night Stand.

    Pretty funny — Megan has informed me that the girls are already using “R.J.” for his barn name. I.e., “Ryan Junior.”

    How ’bout Nighttime or Night Time (“the period between dusk and dawn” – as in 12:34am!!). Or Nightcap or Night Club? I Remember a Night Deer? Night Watchman?

  5. Okay, we have it narrowed down to the following!!! Now we just need to pick one!!! This little guy needs a name! Any thoughts?

    Nick at Night
    Night Out
