Say Her Name, Say Her Name

. . . and after much consternation, deliberation, obfuscation, contemplation, speculation, generalization, postulation, introspection, meditation, and a good degree of confusion, we came up with a name for our 2 year old Posse filly that honors her female heritage.  Thus, the first foal of Bella Attrice to make it to the races will be be known as: Prima Attrice Voting was close among partners and there was even a tie for our 2nd choice between Scathnglybrilliant and Remembered Hope, both nice names that we'll keep in our memory banks for the next round of deliberation, contemplation, etc.!  Here's some pictures of the beautiful Prima Attrice over the first 2 years of her life: With mama, Bella Attrice, as a weanling above. As a yearling last winter - - in that awkward stage . . . Strutting her stuff, feeling good as a yearling last summer . .. and with a group of her owners below: And now on to the our latest additions . . .I'm very happy to report that we had a beautiful Birdstone - Mia Gatto colt on Saturday morning.  Unfortunately my camera failed me and I don't have any photos for you of him, but I do have some very nice photos and a nice video of our ...

Bouncing Baby Bliss!

On February 9, 2015, the latest addition to Bliss Stable arrived! We are thrilled to introduce you to the beautiful Munnings - Irishtocat, by Tomorrow's Cat filly born early in the morning of February 9.   Unlike many of the big-blazed, chestnut Munnings foals we've seen, this filly has the familiar Irish Actress star and lovely dark brown or bay coloring of her mama and grand-dam.  We were fortunate to have "baby-Doc" Sue there along with Cheryl and Michael to ensure safe entry into the world - so thanks and congratulations to them on a job well done.  Despite reports that the often high-strung Irishtocat is very protective of the lovely miss, we found on our visit that she has adopted to this new role of motherhood without any missteps and is doing an outstanding job as our little filly adjusts to the frigid world she has so recently entered.  While consuming more than 5 pounds of carrots as a distraction, Irishtocat allowed us to take some photos of her little girl as the filly energetically bounded and leapt around the stall -- she sure is full of vim and vinegar and we couldn't be more pleased with her.  With a kind eye, a lovely ...

The Cold Doesn't Bother Us Anyway

While this winter has not been as bad as last year, we have been forced to suffer a high number of exceptionally frigid days.  Typically such diversions as today's Super Bowl would be a help in getting us through an otherwise dreary winter. Not so this time around - I am not sure about you but I really can't root for either team and not even the car commercials or half time show has me interested in watching.   (If you're intersted in either of those, I'm sure you'll be able to see them on Youtube at some point today.) And, no, I'm not just fed up with all the hullabaloo caused by the spycam using, ball-deflating, pushing the envelope on the substitution rules to just shy of out and out cheating Patriots.  I don't like them, but I don't particularly care for the Seahawks, so let's hope Netflix has a new series to check out . . . enough on the somewhat ironically named (at least this year anyway) Super Bowl and on to the horses.  As you can see from her picture, we have one beautful 2 year old filly on our hands.  Pete, as we called her when she was on the ...
