Where a timeless and undying commitment to the Thoroughbred horse still holds true.

“Personality and More” by Foal Watch Kim

One of the really cool aspects of foal watch is observing the foals develop their unique personalities. Their character and sometimes a physical aspect, such as a star or other marking often lead to nicknames. For example:

Mighty Mouse - A small one at birth, he made up his size with a tough, outgoing attitude. He’s huge now and a real stud.

┬áMini-me or simply “Mini”: She looks just like her dam and has the same calm, quiet attitude.

Buttercup: So named because her breath smells like butter to me.

Trouble: Unlike the calm demeanor of her dam, she enjoys proving herself as a racehorse, often in the confines of her stall.

Limbo: So named for her penchant of walking under her mom.

Flower: She has a star that is shaped like a flower. She’s also very shy and tends to run and hide behind her dam, reminding me of Flower in the movie “Bambi”.

Finally, speaking of “Bambi”, we have a Bambi in the barn, named for his fawn-like color. Bambi is also known as “Terror”. He can be a handful!
