Uncle Connor!

I'm sure most of you know that Nicole's Castleberry Cob, Roscoe (Castleberrys ReFflection), sired five foals for Connor's breeder this year.  I can't remember if I've shared yet or not that one of those foals was out of Connor's full sister, Castleberrys Dyma Hi - AND, Dyma Hi was the first to go, foaling on Saturday night/Sunday morning!

Welcome to the world, little guy!

Connor has a ton of full siblings for a horse, and it's interesting to study: some of the full siblings clearly take after their sire, *Tuscani Dundee, and some clearly take after their dam, *Bwlchllan Bessie.  Connor is a dead ringer for his dam.  Dyma Hi is a good mix of the two, but definitely has that same Bess head that Connor got, maybe with a little more refinement.

That's a Connor face right there.

This little guy is so strong!  They said he was trying to stand up before he was even all the way out, and got up and stayed up on his first try.  He's also a big boy especially for a maiden mare, which means he's going to be a big, strong looker with all that chrome when he grows up!







Testing out his new wheels.

Dyma Hi totally looks like Connor here, doesn't she?

  5. This colt reminds me so much of Roscoe as a baby it is almost scary. Lisa thinks he will look like Roscoe, but have Dyma Hi's color. Can't wait to see the next four. PS I think the a lot of the siblings got Dundee's head and Bess's eyes.

    1. I agree he looks like baby Roscoe. I think it's pretty evenly split on the heads, mostly in length. Bess's head was so long and narrow, and Dundee's was short and pony. Very cool to have soooo many full siblings to compare!

  6. I assume he'll be for sale...someone in the blogger world should buy him so we can watch him grow up!

  7. I won't lie. I want another one of Lisa's cobs soooo bad! Lisa's horses are so quality and just so cool. If I had any money to spend on another pony I'd be scooping one up. :)
