Nice short video of Blind Luck at the farm. Includes glimpses of her foals. The GC colt looks like a runner to me! :-) And BL looks fantastic. Apparently she's very much a boss mare -- with horses and humans -- too.

She is funny. Very rarely have I seen a horse who actually seemed to be relishing the sale experience. Her handler (Taylor Made puts just 1 person on their big mares) was pretty cool with her, too. He let her stand around and accept treats and bask in the attention when she wasn't being shown.

ETA: Her colt is lovely.

She looks great. Good to see she hasn't lost any of that fire.

I remember Jerry saying that she spent a lot of time "rearranging" her stall -- and woe unto anyone who came in to "fix" it. ;-)

She has such a great walk, so athletic. I can't wait to see that Giant's Causeway colt run.

Ha. She really is a character. Definitely not a pet, but polite with her admirers.

It seems that her colt is with a nurse mare? BL seemed to be without her foal in the paddock. Correct me if I am wrong; since there's no subtitles in the video.

That other chestnut mare in the paddock with Blind Luck, when they're standing around the waterer, looks a lot like Lady Tak.

Loved Lady Tak! Going to go watch right now to see.

ETA: It does looks like her- wish that shot was just a bit longer.

A sweet pic of Forever Together napping in the grass. She's awaiting a Smart Strike baby (not sure when she's due - mid May?).

Did Pegram sell some of her daughters, I wonder? Or did any of them die? Because, at my last count, she has 5 who are broodmares: Silverbulletway, Silver Bullet Moon, Silverbulletfolly, Quality Hops and Elusive Jackpot.

There's no death report on file, but I do question the status of Quality Hops. She had her first/only foal in 2012, a Midnight Lute filly. She was bred back to Midnight Lute for 2013 and I don't see any kind of report And she was not bred for a 2014 foal.

Silverbulletway and Elusive Jackpot have both foaled this year. Nothing yet for Silverbulletfolly or Silver Bullet Moon. Both of them were bred to Midnight Lute, of course.

From Denali's FB page- Serena get all shined up for a visit from Mrs. Lewis- in celebration of her Mother Goose win. (June 9th 1995). The FB posting does state "Mr. Lewis"- but perhaps a typo- unless they have a son?

At any rate, her she is:

Her son Jeff is usually with Mrs. Lewis these days when I see her at the sales, etc.
