From looking at our web site you can tell the foals have been coming pretty close together this year. Some of the girls did not take exactly the dates I saw them being bred and this pushed some of the foaling dates closer than we anticipated. We, also, have the little adopted Doo-Dah who is being bottle fed every 4 hours so we have had some sleepless nights.
When we saw Mink go in to labor, at a rather early hour, we hurried down to the barn anxiously awaiting the birth of our next Napoleon foal. We knew that Mink and Napoleon both had outstanding pedigrees, so this just had to be a great foal.
As Mink was presenting we could see the spots emerging and they just kept coming….I kept saying to Joe it’s a spot, it’s more spots, and more spots, until the entire foal was lying on the stall floor displaying the most beautiful spotted coat we have ever seen. He was one “flashy dude” and we were drooling all over ourselves with excitement. It didn’t take him long to get the “new born” legs up and looking for his milk bar. As he searched we admired his beauty noticing he had a super wide chest and rear. He was straight as an arrow, perfect bite, dark patches on both eyes, and dark eye liner all the way around both eyes and an unusual presence about him. He had everything one would look for in a dark spotted jack…..definitely herd sire material.
We had a hard time leaving the barn that night as all we wanted to do was watch Mink and her new boy bond. It didn’t take him long to let Mink know he had gotten this “new born stuff” under control. He was in charge and jumping all over the place. Mink tried to rest, but, he was tireless, climbing all over and under her as if to say, I am “JUSTIFIED”….I AM ONE HANDSOME, FLASHY, DARK SPOTTED JACK! We laughed at him that evening and finally left the barn with smiles on our faces and love in our hearts for yet another healthy, happy, foal. He had earned the perfect name!
Watch his video and, you too, will be amazed at his presence as he performs for the camera. Justified is a true beauty to watch and a true sweetheart to love.
