Foal details:
Chestnut filly with 4 white socks and a white blaze
By Poets Voice
Out of Mofeyda – dam of 5 winners from 6 runners and 9 foals.
Born at 8:54am on 08.04.2018 weighing 62.5kg

Mofeyda ‘18 is a very intelligent and smart filly, although only just days old she has proved her intelligence within hours of being born. She stood and suckled from her mother, Mofeyda, within only an hour. This is quicker than most average new-borns and already shows us great potential for the little filly. Her first turnout to the paddock was a great success, she was keen to walk to and from the nursery and showed interest in her new surroundings outside.

She has a very pretty head and a kind eye which is important to us as it gives us an insight into her temperament at a young age. She has a nice strong neck with a good curve through her back displaying good depth and strength from head to tail.

She is nice and straight through her near fore leg (left front leg) although her off fore (right front) is quite weak and slack from knee to fetlock. She is slightly toes out on her off fore but as that leg strengthens up her toe will correct and straighten. We must be careful that this filly does not use her near fore to compensate for her off fore, so restricted turnout for this is key. She has long pasterns so we must make sure that whilst growing she does not go upright or over at the knee. Again, a strict turnout regime will keep this under control.

When we look at her from behind, she is windswept on her off hind (right back leg) and has a slight twist when moving. Unaided this could potentially cause her to deteriorate behind and go over at her fetlock on the near hind (left hind). Depending on how this filly strengthens up we may need a farriers mould put onto her hoof to help stabilise the leg and give extra support whilst she is still growing.

Foals develop very quickly and if problems are not noticed and corrected early it will restrict them from doing what they have been bred to do, perform on the track!

As breeders, although Mofeyda ‘18 has some noticeable defects with her legs we do not feel that they are career threatening and she will correct in the coming weeks and months. She has great strength in her upper body which is proportional throughout. Her joints are well formed and her hindquarters are strong enough to be able to support her growth and development.

Overall and as a very big filly out of an old mare, we are absolutely over the moon with what has been produced and we can’t wait for you to join us on this road of watching Mofeyda ‘18 become a true champion!
