First Foal of the Year

Jan 15, 2015 | Horses

The news from Texas: it’s a boy! An adorable dun colt by our stallion, Gunners Special Nite, and out of our beauty-queen mare Belle Starr Dun It. Just like the sweetie-pie he is, he was born in the daytime—giving his people a chance to sleep at night.


The mare that carried him is a surrogate; looks like she’s being a great mom. This gorgeous creature is his biological mother:
