Hope’s yearling filly by Cross Traffic, who we affectionately nicked named Sass, has been named Defining Purpose. The filly exhibits many of her mother’s personality traits so it seemed like a fitting name. I understand that she is quite the Alpha in the paddock with the other yearlings and can display that “diva tude” every now and again. Hoping that white spot on her right side is a “push button” 🙂 Picture below taken this month on a recent visit.
I can’t believe Defining Hope and On The Point’s fillies are already 4 months old! Thanks to COVID, many a horse owner was in the same boat, separated from the horses that they love. Margaux Farm did a great job updating us on the horse’s progress and growth. Though, it sure was great to finally seem them in person- Nothing like it in the world!
Defining Hope’s Cross Traffic filly is very athletic looking while On The Point’s Wicked Strong filly looks like a two turn filly all day long.
The yearling filly, Everything’s Rosy, out of Blueskiesnrainbows, just went through a huge growth spurt this last month. She looks like a 2 yr old for sure. Let’s just get all of that growing out of the way early I say!
Defining Hope is in foal to Runhappy. On the Point will take this year off. Both mares are doing well.
See pictures of the horses below.
Defining Hope delivered a very nice 124 lb Cross Traffic filly born at Margaux Farm about 11:30pm on Sunday, February 23, 2020. Boy, does she have a lot of spunk and sass! We visited her when she was 6 days old and she reminds me of Hope at that age. She was running her mother all over the paddock. No rest for the weary! Hope is such a great mother. Looking forward to seeing how her filly and On the Point’s filly develop. The fillies rule in 2020! Check out the pics below from our visit.
