  • I have to say, I think Candy Ride did right by Zeny. She is so well made.
  • I was so wrong about her coat color. Haha. Thought she was going to be a dark bay.

    She is stunning! Saying it right now..." Z's Big Treat" should be her name. She's a brick house.

    Looks like a chestnut! As I predicted <3
  • BTW: Details to follow on the Blog.

    Zenyatta delivered a chestnut filly by Candy Ride early this morning, May 17th at 5:40 am. We think she’s just beautiful, and Zenyatta is a very proud mom! Details to follow on our blog.
  • Is it just me, or does that filly have the "Look of Eagles" already?
  • colleencolleen Member
    She is adorable.
  • I'm so happy. This is such a happy day.
  • Anyone else see her being sent back to Candy Ride?
  • Works for me.

    Anyone else see her being sent back to Candy Ride?

    I don't think she'll be bred back to anyone this year. It's pretty late. They would have to breed on foal heat most likely. They can watch her develop and then decide.

    I love seeing the sunrise in that second photo. Her standing as the sun is rising shows how quickly Z20 was ready to greet her new world.
  • It will be fun to see if she has any white socks and I'll be waiting to see a straight on head shot of that big white star.

    They definitely made a looker. She DOES have the look of eagles! Anyone else think she was born outside?

    That's what I was thinking. The sunrise is a little before 6 this time of year, right after her reported birthtime. Is that normal for farms this late in the season? I guess I have just always heard of the "foaling barn." They do look to be in a special pen.
  • I hope they let us know how long, after birth, it was before she stood. Born at 5:40am stood at...???

  • I wonder if they decided to not interrupt her routine at all this time around to try avoiding the loss of the foal like last year.

    Race on, you are probably right, otherwise new baby and mare wouldn’t be out this early. I also think her up and about look gives this observation some credence. Such a fun day and great news in this rather flat living experience. <3 <3 <3
  • It's wonderful to think that she might have foaled outside. Makes that sunrise photo even more special, she was standing as the sun rose. The Blog should give us the low-down on the birth and more photos.
  • Anyone know if "Sunrize" is available as a name?
