Duchess

After what seemed at times like a very long wait, Duchess was born on September 2nd at Angels Rest Farm. She was Maya's first foal. In the weeks leading up to the birth Maya had become enormous and we gave her the nickname 'the battleship' for being so large and grey. She was grumpy as well, but I can't blame her for that. When Maya first brought Duchess to meet us she was still wet and couldn't have been more than an hour old. She was still finding her feet and stuck closely to Maya's side. Maya in turn was most protective. Even Duchess's father Alexander was only granted closely supervised access. It was a priviledge to be close with them in those first hours.

Magic Dancer was born on August 11th 2010 at Angels Rest Farm in the early hours of a sunny winter morning. She was Bisqui's second foal born at Angels Rest Farm. Merlin's Magic, her first was born on December 2nd 2007. Magic Dancer is a real livewire and very confident. We took one look at her and the name 'Magic Dancer' just seemed right. Her brother Merlin is never far away and very protective of his little sister. With 3 expectant mares in waiting, it won't be long before Magic Dancer has some young playmates. She has certainly brought a lot of joy to the farm.
