I have to say it.......I'd probably be more excited to see the broodmares than the stallions. Now I'd love to see places like Claiborne for the history, but for the horses themselves, the pregnant mares are thrilling to me. You are indeed lucky you got to visit Brandywine, Paniolo_Gal! Can I ask, was Top Marks waxing? Or was she dripping? Every aspect of foaling fascinates me. As a dog breeder and conformation exhibitor, I'm actually more happier when I'm whelping than when I'm showing.
Aw, cool story! Remy's sire's damsire is Crafty Prospector. Tough horses. Not the prettiest but very hardy.It's crazy to me that she didn't meet her reserve - it looks like her dam has blacktype. She's so well-bred!!
