It’s a Wrap on Hilltop’s 2017 Foaling Season
Well somehow the 3 months of foaling season have flown by and our final foals have arrived. On May 15th, Raja HTF delivered a beautiful, very feminine and long-legged filly by Pikko del Cerro. On May 19th, Uforia produced a handsome dark brown colt by Lord Leatherdale. This Lord Leatherdale-Negro combination has been almost unbeatable in Holland the past few years and we’re thrilled to have one of our own! On Saturday, May 27th Catherine Haddad’s wonderful mare Raureif had a bright chestnut Vitalis colt. He’s very masculine and well-developed. And with that, foaling season has reached a quiet, peaceful closing.
Any who has endured the loss of a horse can understand the sorrow and despair that descends like a shroud over everyone involved. Any who has witnessed a horse struggle through serious illness can understand how emotional it is to watch horses fight for their lives and how much respect such horses earn amongst their caregivers.
What a way to end the year! The 2012 North American Stallion Test just finished this weekend and we couldn't be more pleased with the results for Qredit when he finished as the Dressage Champion & Overall Champion at the the 2012 70-Day North American Stallion Test!
