Hope- 4 mos

I learned today that Hope was weened this past week at 4 months. I believe On The Point probably needed the break early this year. Her foals are so big and now entering her 2nd trimester, she probably didn’t want to be bothered with nursing anymore. She happily spends her days grazing in the field with the other mares in foal. The weening appeared to be uneventful for both. Hope looked very content when we visited her today and was happily munching on hay in her stall. I think she enjoys having her own private room! Below are a few pics taken today.

The Jockey Club accepts a name for Hope

Last week, I learned that the Jockey Club accepted the name submitted  for On The Point’s 2014 filly, Hope. She will be registered later this month under the name “Defining Hope”. The credit goes to my oldest daughter, Brit, who thought of the brilliant name.Thanks again Brit! 🙂 It is so fitting for such an elegant, and classy filly.
