In the night from monday to tuesday mamy got her 13th foal. After three fillies, one colt, three fillies, one colt, three fillies, one colt, she got one more filly. The story continues... This birth was extra special, because the fillie was carried by Rumba, a trotter mare from Haras de la Pomme. The mamas and their daughter go well.
On the night from Friday to Saturday Nina gave birth to a healthy son. They are doing very well! Have a look at their video.
