Hilltop Wraps Up Our 2014 Foaling Season

Hilltop News Hilltop Wraps Up Our 2014 Foaling Season Return to All Hilltop News >>> May 12th and 13th brought more healthy foals here to Hilltop Farm.  On Thursday night, Melissa Stubenberg’s mare Wraina (Obadiah-Sir Wimborne xx) delivered her third foal – a very flashy Royal Prince colt that is a full sibling to the Premium Filly and Devon winner that she had last year.  The following night, the maiden mare Reata (Rousseau-Catalpa Lane xx) delivered an elegant colt by Qredit that shows so much of his sire in the stamp.  Owner Kathy Jackson can be proud of this new addition. Our final foal of the season was born on May 30th.  The mare Whizzo (White Magic-Lemon) was carrying her second foal, this one by Doctor Wendell MF.  The dark-coated filly with lots of chrome is a stunner and a great way to cap off the season.  We have nine healthy, high-quality foals safely on the ground and we are very excited of the consistently high quality we’re seeing in these foals.
