Happy (early) Thanksgiving, we hope you spend the weekend with your family and friends!
With Breeders’ Cup in the rearview, we are ready to hunker down on the farm and prepare for winter – we’ve already had our first snow! We have officially finished our Beholder tours for the year in preparation for her Curlin filly.
Q B One has reached another milestone and has now moved to the yearling division. At Spendthrift, we move our weanlings to the yearling barns around the second/third week of November and they will remain there until they’re sold or sent to Florida for breaking and training. They stay with the same group of horses they’ve been with since they were born – they’re just in a new barn! In addition, we separate fillies and colts at this time. Many farms will do this in February or March but we believe it is easier on the horses to make one big move throughout the year instead of two. We do this so we can prepare the foaling barns for the next foaling season. Mares will be moved to their foaling barns at about the same time. Fun fact: Q B One is in a paddock with Greer Lynn 18 (full sibling to Mia Mischief) & Beholder is in a paddock with Greer Lynn!
Enjoy the holidays and stay warm!
We are adding a new Beholder 11×14 print that will be available for purchase on 11/23 at midnight! There are only 100 available.
Also, stay on the lookout for an email on Friday with all of the Holiday Deals in The Spendthrift Shop – you won’t want to miss it.
We want to hear from YOU! Let us know in the comments below what your Thanksgiving plans are!
