Hamish and Hooty Had a Baby

At just before 10pm on Friday the 29th of November at 366 days gestation, Wynyard Nightowl (Hooty) produced a beautiful filly foal by TF Hamish. Hooty likes to cook her babies well and this one is no exception. She's a BIG girl and she came out covered like a week old (not a rib in sight!) but she was up on her feet and drinking well within minutes of her birth and her IgG test results came back over 800 (failure of passive transfer is always a worry with a mare who likes to drip milk for days and days before producing her foal!)  so she is off to an excellent start! We're keeping her restricted for the first couple of weeks as she gets used to her long, long legs and 'finds her feet'. 

Anyway, without further ado, here she is!


And now the name game begins!
