Raising foals is rewarding and fun as well as a lot of work. We handle our foals daily and do our best to give them a good start. We have offered a foal reservation program for quite a few years now and we are planning some changes in the future. We have 7 foals coming, 4 Morgan foals and 3 Moriesian foals for 2019. We will be reducing the number of foals for 2020 and only be taking a few reservations. Thank you for your interest in our foals.
Our First foal has arrived for 2019!
And just like that we have a WINDHOVER REGENCY FILLY at 326 days! She decided to make her grand entrance earlier than anticipated and I am so excited and feel so blessed to bring history forward in this beautiful little girl.
Introducing to the Morgan world............
RBD Regency's Hallelujah
(Windhover Regency x Mountainview Rhea)
Homozygous Black Morgan Filly
When I woke this morning to see this beautiful filly in the pen down from the 2 stalls I'd been watching on camera all night... I could hardly believe my eyes!! How silly of me to be watching the mares that are waxed, dropped and acting like they could foal. Just when you think you have things figured out, these mares will show you better. LOL
I checked Rhea last night like I do all the mares. She was not due until the end of the month, no wax, munching her hay quietly. Rhea is 18 years old and we purchased her from Ron of Mountainview Morgans in Canada, for breeding.
Dr. Jennifer Tiegen from Top Line Equine Vet Care, did an amazing job breeding her for us with frozen semen of the legendary Windhover Regency, who passed away in 1998. We were breeding an older mare with very old semen that was collected 25 years ago and frozen. I want to give special thanks to the late Will Janzen who was kind enough to share Regency with us and Bruce and Kari Janzen for helping to make this miracle baby happen. Many hugs! I'm over the moon excited for this beautiful little girl! She is a keeper and the future of Rafter Bar D.
She's already a little character with a friendly calm way about her yet a little twinkle in her eye. I LOVE her! and feel blessed to bring such amazing old blood in history forward into the Morgan breed today.
Our 8th and last foal for the season arrived June 25, 2018
RBD Rosalita Dun Kisses
(Amberfields Blaze n Dun x RBD Wild Irish Rose)
Rosalita is such a big beautiful bay dun filly! She is sold and going to a wonderful home in Alberta Canada with Cynddea. Congratulations! This filly is everything we thought this cross would be. She is just lovely and in your pocket friendly as well as athletic. Really love this filly and her little pink lip is adorable.
The 7th foal arrived May 16, 2018 ~ A tall beautiful Bay Dun Colt!
RBD Dun Lovin' Beau
(Amberfields Blaze n Dun x Bar Non Buckskin Beauty)
This tall colt is so friendly! He's such a sweetheart and he's going to be a big boy like his sire and dam. His dam is a first time Mom and she's pretty proud of her boy. He's a mirror image of his sire and such a sweetheart. I love his proud stance and his self carriage at such a young age. Really love this colt! New pics coming soon! He is available for our buyers with deposits to choose once all the foals are born.
The 6th foal arrived May 16, 2018 ~ A big beautiful Moriesian filly!
RBD Princess Jasmine
(RBD Immortal Legacy x Marieke fan North Ster)
Jasmine is everything we envisioned for the cross and more. She is so beautiful with all the right curves and her movement is breathtaking! Congratulations and a long wait for Kim Kershlis! This filly is so sweet and a talker like her dam. I just love her She is well worth the wait Kim. You're going to love this girl
The 5th foal arrived May 13, 2018 ~ An exquisite black filly!
RBD Miss America
(RBD Immortal Legacy x JMF Licorice Schnapps)
This fancy filly is just as perfect as she can be! Her head and eye is so beautiful and she's every bit as fancy a mover as her dam and sire. She's a friendly little gal and curious. She is homozygous for black and will be available after weaning. New photos coming soon 🙂
Our fourth foal arrived May 8, 2018 ~ A tall beautiful dunskin filly!
RBD Ellie Mae Dun
(Amberfields Blaze N Dun x Bar Non Suede's Princess)
This beautiful girl surprised us and was born out in the pasture! She was not due until later in the month. Princess is a first time Mom and did great! We sent a hair sample in to coat color test Ellie as there was a 50% chance she was homozygous for the dun gene. The results is Ee Aa nCr Dd, so she is a buckskin with the dun gene or a "dunskin". She has a dorsal stripe and very faint leg barring which will show more evident after she sheds her baby hair. How exciting! Ellie is the first dunskin born at Rafter Bar D and will be proudly offered to our buyers with deposits to choose after all the foals are born.
Our third foal arrived May 5, 2018 ~ A tall beautiful bay dun filly!
RBD Isabella Dun True
(Amberfields Blaze N Dun x RBD True Gabriella)
This tall beautiful filly is a special one! Her dam was orphaned and I raised Gabriella so seeing her becoming a mother is so rewarding. This cross is amazing! Her full brother from last year is spectacular! She's in so your pocket friendly and correct. Isabella was chosen by Cory from WI. Congratulations! She will be going to a very special home this fall after weaning.
Our second foal arrived May 3, 2018 ~ A big beautiful black colt
RBD El Zafiro Negro
