RIP, gorgeous Alaura Michele. Condolences to all who loved her.

Participating in the thoroughbred horse industry is a special privilege for all of us at Siena Farm. Interacting daily with these special creatures is truly an amazing life. But as living animals, sometimes the end comes much sooner than anyone expects.

On April 2nd, our broodmare Alaura Michele lost her lengthy battle with colic. The Siena Farm family is devastated by this loss.

Alaura Michele (2009 m, by Arch--Isobel Baillie (GB)) was the first horse foaled on Siena Farm on January 23, 2009, and went on to become a multiple stakes winner at Saratoga, winning the P.G. Johnson S. as a two-year old and the Nani Rose S. as a three-year old.

@ Usquebaugh Stables

Randy got a few quick shots of La Flamme (Giant's Causeway) yesterday. Her Bal a Bali baby belly (say that 4 times fast) is getting bigger. She is due in April.

~ This was posted in January. Sharing here because I like the phrase "Bal a Bali baby belly", and also because La Flamme is out of a half-sister to Ghostzapper, City Zip, and City Wolf.

Groupie Doll, who is quite pregnant, likes to make the foaling barn grooms work for their pay. 😉 She took a nice roll in the mud and then decided that, 11 months pregnant or not, she needed a little sprint to the waterer.

On a side note- it's important for heavily pregnant mares to be able to stretch their legs and graze whenever possible. It helps with stocking up (when the legs swell while stalled) and edema that can build under the belly. It keeps the grooms busy with checking the mares who are outside during the day and of course means more grooming, but in most cases it's what's good for the horse, and that's what we're here for.

GD's udder is showing in that photo, so it appears she's 'bagging up.'

Hishi Amazon had a huge fan club, no doubt - she was really something and such a powerhouse. But had the internet been widely used back when she was racing, I can only imagine how many fans she'd have had.
Yes, I swear that she had a huge fan following, too!

Maximum Security's dam was brought back from Korea with the full brother. Colt was foaled in Korea.

Not sure if she was bought back or if the owners in Korea brought her back over here for breeding.

The dam of Maximum Security, Lil Indy (Anasheed), made it home today just in time to watch this race. And she wasn't alone; she brought Max's new little sister with her! They are at Hartwell farm.

Her canine namesake here is also quite pregnant. Though due any moment, this morning she galloped across the kitchen floor and pounced on a stuffed toy. Eerie coincidence...

Well, that's a shame. She was a fine racehorse and an even better broodmare.
