Born at 5:30 pm on Friday, April 4, 2003, this lovely chestnut overo filly, to be named "Spectaculare" and called "Splash" is by the Oldenburg stallion, Spectum, and out of our pinto mare, Drifter.  Her owner, Shelli, is ecstatic!  So are we!

Born at 3:00 am Sunday, April 13, 2003, meet Macarns Applause, a few spot Knabstrupper colt by Apollon and out of Gypsy Queen.  What an awesome colt!  His coloring is indicative that he is homozygous for the Knabstrupper spotted coloring, so he should produce color every time he is bred - even to solid colored mares!  He will be for sale, so if you are interested in starting up a good Knabstrupper sporthorse breeding program, you should snap him up!


Above at 4 months.

Below at 3 weeks old - he's HUGE!


Born at 5:30 pm on April 17, 2003, meet Waps Moonshine, a black snowcap colt by Wapspotted. His dam was purchased in foal to Wapspotted to add to the Knabstrupper breeding program and we were hoping for a filly colored JUST like this! He has sold to a breeding home in Virginia

Yippee!  A filly!  Meet Macarns Standing Ovation, a black-based few spot Knabstrupper filly by Apollon and out of Dear Abby. She was born about 1:30 pm on Friday, April 25, 2003.   She is just adoreable!  NOT for sale!  

Above at 4 months. She is stunning!

Meet Macarns All that Jazz, a loud chestnut leopard Knabstrupper filly by Apollon and out of Joker Jill.  She was born around 3:00 am on Saturday, April 26, 2003.  Not fully unfolded in the first pics to the left, but she is large and beatiful and is NOT for sale! 

Above at 5 years. We've started calling her "Freckles."

At 1:20 am on May 1, 2003 Saturn's Diamond gave us BF Saturn Fyre, another darling bay colt by Fyre One.  Tall & strong, he is just a hunk.  I can't wait to see this one under saddle.

Jolie gave birth to My Ladys Mercedes, a darling black filly at 10:15 pm on May 14, 2003.  This filly is by Fyre One and was a special order for the owner of Fyre and Jolie's last foal, full sibling BF Saffyre who took the Pinto World Show by storm a couple of years ago.  This one did not get the pinto coloring, but owner, Shannon says not to worry, she'll show her in the half-Arabian shows and kick tail!  

Above at 6 weeks.

Just four hours after Jolie gave us a filly, Galieb gave birth at 2:15 am on May 14, 2003 to a strapping black colt by Wuemmestern.  Galieb was brought to us to foal out and will be going home soon.  We'll miss them both.  I am told that this boy MIGHT be named Famous Amos.

At 8:30 pm on Monday, May 19, 2003, Dia Castagnia gave us a whopping black colt by Sunny Boy.  We will name him Solaris.  Then, 5 days later, his dam passed away, leaving us with our little bucket baby. We are calling him "Solo."  He is a hunk and is doing very well.  Velvet is allowing him to nurse a couple of times a day and we are supplementing with milk replacer. He is being raised by a 9 hand pony mare named "Promise" and she is teaching him well. We are considering keeping him as a stallion prospect (incredible bloodlines and his sire, Sunny Boy, is the talk of Europe right now).  See Solaris' Page here.
