Dylanglen Stud received an unexpected New Year gift this year. To our surprise this week we found a new little edition in the paddock! Buffy is a “good do-er” but we did not suspect that she was pregnant. Time to catch up with the paperwork.
Dylanglen Buffy gave birth to a rather nice looking bay colt. He has a white star and snip as well as one white back sock. Quite attractive already and showing some good bone. He is a full brother to Dylanglen Red Emperor.
After a meeting today it was decided to name our new little fellow Dylanglen Red Baron. He is already a cheeky little character, running up to you to say hello, but Buffy is still keeping that watchful and glaring eye over him. Baron is not allowed to go too far away just yet! She is a great mum, as well as boss of the paddock, so the new little man is safe and sound.
So, in conclusion, it looks nice “Red” will have his little brother “Baron” following in his footsteps. We expect Baron to give Red some stiff competition in the show ring. It will be very interesting to see how these two go against each other in the future.
Although we are very pleased with this outcome, we pose just one question to Buffy….. “Are you going to give us a filly one day…?”
