Update on Starlet

I just want everyone to know that Nemours Royal Starlet had a large bay colt on April 26 at 7:15 AM. Despite Chris sleeping in the barn, Starlet managed to deliver her foal while Chris was in the house feeding the dogs. We have named the colt Harlequin a.k.a Fred because of his coloring. He…

Equipment wanted
