Foal Announcements Posted 7/17/13

Lots of new Bugatti foals have arrived in the last few weeks.  Bill and Charlotte Roseburg’s third and final Bugatti foal of the season has arrived! This time it is a filly out of the Thoroughbred mare Purple Bal (Order - Fred Astaire)“Very correct, coordinated, and special! She will make someone a very lovely partner. Thanks to team Hilltop (and of course Mr. Bugatti), we are blessed once again.”

It’s a pinto Bugatti for Brenda Kelly! Brenda’s mare Sizzle had a chestnut pinto filly by Bugatti on June 27th.  She is quite possibly the flashiest Bugatti foal we have ever seen! Congratulations Brenda!

Congratulations to Beth Custalow of California! Beth’s mare Romantic (Rohdiamant - Airport) had a pretty chestnut Bugatti filly.  Both mare and foal are doing well.

In Canada, it’s a Bugatti colt out of the Thoroughbred mare Root For Lady Jane. This is breeder Jane Mitchell’s third Bugatti foal over the past few years.  Congratulations on another lovely Bugatti foal Jane!

Congratulations to Hannah Mattis on the arrival of her Riverman filly out of the Thoroughbred mare Canwestillbefriends.  The pretty filly has been named Fritz River.  We can’t wait to see her competing as a hunter or jumper in a few years – we’re sure she will be a star!

In Ohio, it’s a surprisingly flashy Royal Prince colt.  With four tall whites and a big blaze, we’re not sure where this handsome chestnut colt got so much white! He certainly wasn’t what breeder Christina Canter expected when she bred her Danish mare Pennsylvania K to Royal Prince, but she couldn’t be happier.

Qalypso CCF (Qredit x Akinori/Enrico Caruso)

2013 Oldenburg Filly; Owner/Breeder: Charlotte’s Creek Farms

2013 Qredit filly, Qalypso CCF, cleaned up at the Virginia Summer Dressage Breed Show this past weekend.  Owner Chris Roseberry couldn’t be happier with this filly! Miss Callie had an amazing show!  She reminded me so much of Qredit at that age, just such amazing composure to be so young.  She was fearless!  She won the fillies of 2013 with an 87% (9 conformation, 8 walk, 9 trot, 9 overall impression).  Won the foal championship and was Reserve Champion Young Horse.  Also was high score of the show and won the Born in the USA award. And as tired as she was, won the ISR Oldenburg class with an 82%.” Congratulations to everyone at Charlotte’s Creek Farms for this filly’s wonderful performance! (June 2013)

It’s a Donarweiss colt for Michelle Rooney of Arizona.  Michelle’s Westfalen mare Plum Bayou Morning Glory had a handsome black Donarweiss colt with three white socks and a star.  Typically of the Donarweiss offspring, this little guy is enjoying learning lots of new things like leading, clipping, and picking up his feet.

We are seeing lots of white on the Royal Prince foals this year and Paulette Zeigler’s filly is no different. Paula’s filly Royal Odessa (Royal Prince x Ulla/Chardonay) has four white socks and a big blaze, very surprising when you consider the small amount of white on her full sister.  Congratulations Paula!

Also, Wolke Neun delivered her Don Principe colt this morning (June 21).  He has four whites and a blaze.  We're not sure where all this chrome came from, as the mare looks very much like Don Principe (dark bay with virtually no white). Both colts are doing great.  We're very pleased.” Congratulations Dara!

Congratulations to Dianne Kirk of Ohio on the arrival of her Negro filly out of the Oldenburg mare Ensenada (Ex Libris). Dianne commented “She is gorgeous and very balanced and does beautiful flying lead changes already.”
