Hilltop Farm Foaling Updates

Philly-webOur foaling season here at Hilltop is continuing along really well and we’re very excited about this year’s group of foals.  It’s a fun mix of sires, so we are seeing a lot of diversity.  On May 4th, Raja HTF (Royal Prince-Parabol) gave birth to a tall, long-legged black filly by Contucci.  With 4 matching socks and a star/snip, she’s quite the fancy one.  On May 8th, Liz Frankel’s mare Utopia (Ginsberg-Don Pedro) had her second foal.  This adorable filly is by Vallado (aka Praise) and looks a lot like her sire!  On May 10th, the filly streak broke with the arrival of a very good looking colt by Qredit out of Iris Aberbach’s Berlinetta A (Bugatti-Weltbekannt) who is a full-sister to the very successful Boxster A.  We’re now officially over halfway through our foaling season!

Cabana-Gladstone

Hilltop Farm's Christopher Hickey and Cabana Boy (Contucci-Bordeaux) attended the 2010 Collecting Gaits Farm/USEF Dressage Festival of Champions on August 6-8 at the historic USET headquarters in Gladstone, NJ. At only 8 years old, this was already Cabana Boy's 2nd trip to the Championships. It was especially rewarding to have Hilltop's owner Jane MacElree and her daughters Ann and Leslie on hand to enjoy the show.

For many Warmblood enthusiasts, just the mention of the famous stallion Riverman is enough to send chills down their spines. The stunning grey Holsteiner, who currently stands at stud at Hilltop Farm in Colora, Maryland, was the Reserve Champion at his stallion licensing, and was a Verband stallion in Germany for the first part of his life.
