Its a record! Today we aspirated 30 eggs (oocytes) from the ovaries of a single mare. The most we previously collected was 28. These eggs were sent to Oregon Health & Sciences University for research on equine ICSI.

Our last Darco ICSI colt for 2015 has arrived! Recipient mare Holly just popped him out in one minute, with no sweating or labour pains! She just laid down at 6 in the afternoon and suddenly the whole foal shot out.

The first Fame VF baby born in 5 years. He’s a colt out of a Barbary daughter (Eternally Barbary) out of an *Eter daughter. He was conceived using the ICSI procedure on the first try last year. His dam was 21 years old at the time. Many thanks to Dr. Beck and the staff at In Foal, Inc. In Hemet, CA.

Now that I have both Miss-Cleopatra and her lovely recip home – it’s become so much more real. From beyond exciting and somewhat surreal little black dot photos, to it being completely tangible with a recip who visibly has a small belly starting. Feeling so incredibly blessed. For those that know me well, and my being blessed with black horses – it’s an incredible irony and sign that this was meant to be, that Miss-Cleo’s recip is a stunning black 5 year old mare! Photos to come.

Another huge thank you to Dr. Rick Beck and team at InFoal, Inc. for their great care of Cleo and for making a dream come true! Cleo was sure not looking or feeling 21 when I picked her up, a true testament of the amazing care she recieved.

Big thank you to Robin for the wonderful hospitality for the girls and the great visit!

Also thank you to Hidden Pearl Farm for the opportunity to purchase Baloubet semen which made this match possible.

We have fetal sexed this amazing foal, and it is a colt. Cleo foals are not common and are certainly a treasure. Won’t be in a hurry to let this one go, but as I’ve retained the half brother Garrick SSM (cover photo) and will be trying for a full sibling – hopefully a filly – next year, I’ll be offering this sensational colt to a top show home.

This is a cool picture, sent to us by the ranch owner, of 5 recipient mares from InFoal, Inc. They are all pregnant with embryos from some very valuable Arabian mares. Only a coincidence, all the recipients were black!!

Congratulations to Lynn Puana, of Kamuala, Hawaii on the birth 2 hours ago of a beautiful ICSI foal from an egg collected from her great mare Allison injected with a sperm cell from the famous Warmblood jumper Baloubet du Rouet.  Allison came to us from Hawaii, the greatest distance any mare has traveled for the ICSI procedure.  We produced a second foal from the same genetic combination this year.

Our newborn Darco colt is 27 years younger than our “elite” BWP Darco daughter Mistery!! This amazing ICSI technology allows us to produce foals from a stallion that has been deceased 9 years!

Couldn’t wait any longer to announce the sire of Miss-Cleo’s 2016 sensational jumper foal. Go read who it is!

This would not be possible without the amazing Dr. Rick Beck and team at InFoal, Inc.! Cannot recommend and thank them enough smile emoticon!

'The one and only Baloubet du Rouet!'
'40 day Baloubet du Rouet x Miss-Cleopatra sport/keur embryo!'
'Miss-Cleopatra sport/keur - our extremely special mare!'

Far too excited to wait any longer to announce Miss-Cleo’s sensational 2016 foal – so we’re doing it at day 40. Knock on wood we are fairly safe in the pregnancy at this point.

I cannot thank Dr. Rick Beck and his team at InFoal, Inc. enough! It is a dream come true to have another special Cleo foal on the way, to have it be from such a TOP sire is icing on the cake and could not have been done without the diligent efforts of Dr. Beck! When taking Cleo to California, I was cautiously optomistic due to her age (21!). Dr. Beck managed to achieve a pregnancy, which has thankfully stuck in their lovely recipient mare, with only 2 asiprations! I was blown away at how quickly Dr. Beck was able to be successful – a testament to how amazing he is at this procedure and also how well the horses are cared for. If you’re considering ICSI in the future, HIGHLY reccommend Dr. Beck and his team – the communication and service is bar none the best. I truly couldn’t be happier! THANK YOU!

Now, without further ado, we are over the moon pleased to announce that we are expecting a BALOUBET DU ROUET x Miss-Cleopatra sport/keur foal for 2016!!!! A filly will be retained but a colt may be for sale to a very special, top show home. This may be the longest wait we’ve ever had for a foal! But the 4 year wait without a special Cleo foal is going to be so worth it!

What an amazing week this is shaping up to be, and it’s only Monday morning! Feel like I should be buying a lotto ticket (or at least checking old ones!).

Colossal thank you to Dr. Rick Beck and his team at InFoal, Inc. – just got this photo from Dr. Beck. Miss-Cleopatra’s very special embryo has now made it to 25 days in a recipient mare and has a heartbeat! Garrick SSM will, knock on wood, have a half brother or sister for 2016 and I’m just thrilled! Only 20 more days until I announce the sire of this super super special baby.

If you’re considering ICSI, Dr. Beck is truly phenomenal – from keeping you 100% in the loop with what’s happening to answering questions. His staff are also amazing and always willing to help. Some of the best (if not THE best) service I have ever had from a veterinary clinic and has made a daunting proccess so much less stressful. I cannot say enough good things and it is certainly more than worth the drive! Only regret is not doing this sooner!!

Congratulations to Maile de Goeij on the pregnancy of a recipient mare with an ICSI embryo from her mare Cleo.

“Got the very BEST news this morning – I hate to jinx myself, but too excited not to share! After a 4 year wait, we have another Miss-Cleopatra (sport/keur) foal on the way!! Just over the moon with this news and praying the recip continues to hold onto the pregnancy. What a first little black dot of the season this is! Will announce the sire once the recip makes it safely past 45 days. But this is going to be a really, really special foal. Words cannot express how excited I am for this, the first little black dot, of the season! It’s been a long wait, but I promise it will be 100% worth it. The most beautiful sight I may have ever seen!

Huge THANK YOU to Dr. Beck and staff at InFoal, Inc., for making the dream of another special Cleo foal possible. And to Chad for blessing me with the opportunity to own this amazing mare.”
