fabulous chestnut pinto homozygous, blue eyed colt has been weaned and gone to
his new home. Rio and Chinchee's fillies, Faberge and Snowbird
respectively, were late arrivals in June so are still at present with their mothers.
Faberge is an ultra refined, well marked, dainty filly, like Lalique,
her full sister from 2011, and I hope to show her next season. Snowbird
is the first pinto foal Chinchee has had, always producing solid coloured
babies to Uno previously. 'Snow' has a gorgeous head, like her dam, and
although well made and very correct, she is going to be tiny, probably around
28" - 29" at maturity, but a strong little character.
third and final foal of 2012 arrived on 26th June. An absolutely exquisite
refined, leggy black pinto filly with a superb head. This foal is the kind you
could wait a lifetime for, the beauty and refinement you dream of, all in one
package, and I am so lucky to already have her full sister from 2011,
Donabi UK Uno Lalique. The pics were taken when she was about 20 minutes old,
so will be updated as she progresses.
2012 foal arrived on 9th June. Another surprise as it was a pinto and Uno/Chinchee
have previously always produced solid colour babies - but always fillies. This
little baby arrived early and like Chinchee's other foals weighed in at around
8 kilos. She is a pretty, cute little doll, so feminine but playful and cheeky
with plenty of presence like her dam.

first foal of 2012 born on 19th April. Just when I think I have had all the
surprises 'Uno' has to offer, he and Tiffany produce yet another spectacular colt
(Tiff's 5th colt in a row, she doesn't 'do' girls !) a chestnut pinto but......with
BLUE EYES !!! Where did they find this one ?? This little colt, Monet,
is loudly marked and again homozygous for tobiano. Don't know how 'Uno' is producing
so many homozygous offspring either, he must have the most incredible gene pool,
6 out of 8 of his 2011 foals were tested positive for tobiano.
such a typical 'Tiff' baby right from the beginning, not only his quality, colouring
and refinement but like his full brothers he is overly confident, people friendly
and 'grown up' for his age. We are just loving having him around, but he will
be for sale at weaning as I have run on a bay pinto homozygous 'Uno' colt from

the 2012 expected foals, and a season showing.
There are three of our
'Elite' mares to foal in 2012 to our top producing stallion Uno Tom

Dear Nehi Chinchee May has hopefully put all the problems
of last year behind her, and is expected to foal in June. We will anxiously be
awaiting the safe arrival of this foal.
It was exciting to have Fallen
Ash Eagles First Love confirmed in foal when scanned in January, even though
it could be a July baby. She had an exquisite ultra refined grulla pinto filly
in 2011, which has been retained and will be heading for the show ring this season.
Magic foaled an absolutely stunning, leggy, refined
colt on 31st August. Another baby which arrived almost a month before its
due date, but that was a bonus being so late in the summer now. This little boy
is full brother to Donabi UK Uno Romantic Affair who has had such
a sensational first season for the delightful Kelly Family of Turra Lodge in Ireland.
days yet, but this colt has the look of another 'Superstar'.
COLT THIS TIME !
It seems Tiffany was in a hurry as well
and presented a very striking pinto colt on Thursday morning 19th May 2011 soon
after I put her out in the paddock, and luckily before I left for work ! Full
brother to Masterpiece and Masterclass, but again soooo different

Rio couldn't wait until 2nd/3rd week in June - look
what I found out in the paddock around 11.30 am on Saturday morning 14th May !
An exquisite, delicate, leggy filly with the most beautiful head and gorgeous

filly out of Fallen Ash Eagles First Love
first two foals have arrived and are both very different but beautiful fillies!
the joy of having 5 out of 5 foals arriving safely last year, sadly this year
we were not to be so lucky.
Starting as early as 27th January things started
to go wrong with dear little Nehi Chinchee May foaling almost 6 weeks early with
all sorts of complications resulting in her losing a beautiful filly.
was next to foal a week late on 14th April, and that to my horror was another
red bag delivery, two in a row seemed impossible, but fortunately her filly was
correctly presented and after a struggle I managed to pull it out safely. It is
the most amazing loudly marked sorrel pinto, very correct, with a lovely head
and fabulous friendly temperament.
Spirit foaled a little early,
10 days after Glitz on the 24th April, not quite straightforward either but another
filly, an unusually marked minimal black pinto. This filly if ultra refined and
leggy with a fantastic head, similar to Spirit's filly from last year that I have
Tiffany should be next towards the end of the May/June,
followed by Rio (Fallen Ash Eagles First Love) with Magic bringing
up the rear for a late summer baby.
the latest broodmare to join our herd from Faith Farm in Alabama, presented us
on 13th May with this exquisite, leggy, refined filly, sired by the strikingly
marked Another Dimension Mr Remarkable. The filly has inherited her dam's
beautiful head, and is an attractive silver bay - which is a first for us, we
haven't had that colour before !
Uno Tiffany produced
a colt foal in the early hours of Wednesday 29th April - and she caught
me out, although I had the screen on all night in the bedroom !! He was a week
late, and it showed, what a super, well furnished baby, and potentially another
show stopper, with the lovely head that stamps 'Uno Tom Thumb' foals.
Well forget the Colour
Calculator !!! I haven't a clue what colour this little boy is - a sort of
pale milk chocolate/minky colour with not a white hair anywhere to be seen, and
like the other three foals, with a very definite dorsal stripe going along his
back and down his tail.
Tiffany looks wonderful, having already regained
her trim figure, looking fit for the show ring right now, she is such a brilliant
