Early this morning we got a call from Laura Walker, Horse Unit manager for the University of Arizona’s Equine Center, announcing the arrival of a lovely chestnut filly out of our Grand Prix jumper Charisma 57 and sired by Darchin (Durango La Silla). We rushed right down to see the new baby ourselves and were thrilled with her size, substance, straight legs and sweet disposition. Of course we went with camera in hand, so here’s the link for an entire album of baby pictures.
Coincidentally, the Horse Unit hosted an open house this afternoon to spread the word about the program and drum up some fund-raising ideas from Tucson horse professionals. We took Carmen there to foal because we had some extended travel plans on the horizon and knew she would be in excellent hands at the Equine Center’s well run facility.
