“We have been ‘Truly Blessed’ with our foals this season.”

We travelled down to the Cape last week to visit a few of our mares boarding at Winterbach Stud… as well as to see four new foals!

The mares and foals are looking fantastic and we are so appreciative to Hendrik Winterbach Snr & Jnr for the professional care and interest both have for our visiting contingent. It is a risky business travelling one’s mares away for the season, and the Winterbachs continue to do an excellent job for us!

Of the 16 mares sent to Winterbach, we have already had quite a few tested in foal and are awaiting results on a few others that have been covered.

As Hendrik Snr said, “We have been ‘Truly Blessed’ with our foals this season”, and our feeling is that this is the best crop Backworth has ever had, both physically and speciman-wise… and we are extremeley excited!

Here are four new arrivals; a strapping Byword colt out of Dancing Royale, a handsome Byword colt out of Cupid’s Daughter, a leggy Kahal colt out of Gilt Edge and an elegant Crusade filly out of Forbidden Woods.
