William Pietschman More than 1 year ago
shucks....sure wish they would give the NAME of the FOALS at the same time...lol...
Lmaris Lmarislmaris More than 1 year ago
It would be tough to do that, considering most of the foals will not have names (other than dam's name '15) for months if not a couple years.
