Foaling Season Continues at Hilltop
After a few weeks break, foalings continued at Hilltop Farm on April 23rd. Melissa Stubenberg’s Oldenburg mare Wraina (Obadiah-Sir Wimborne xx) produced a fantastic bay colt by Pikko del Cerro HU. A short-coupled and uphill build and a good amount a bone are a few of the highlights for this colt. On the afternoon of April 25th, EM Raj Mahal HTF (Royal Prince-Donnerhall) gave us her 4th foal and 3rd filly in a row! Another bay (the trend continues) with adorable markings, this filly is by the Grand Prix stallion Belissimo M. Susanne Manz’s maiden mare Portia (Prado-Sandro Hit) had an easy delivery on the night on April 26th and produced a very fancy Qredit filly who sports a blaze and 4 white stockings. This one is a looker! A few hours later in the early morning of April 27th, Chiquita HTF (Contucci-Cordoba) had her 3rd colt, this time a very good-looking dark bay by Rubinero. We expect a quiet week or two now before the group of the last 4 mares is due to foal.
