    1. Dear Sheena:

      Prayers for Leslie’s Lady; safe foaling and healthy baby. Quite a few chicks will be hatching soon.

      I am sad that Biscuits will be in Japan. I bet Gun will be too. Hopefully, they will keep in touch. Happy, healthy life to Oscietra as a Mama. Godspeed Prince of Caviar. Goodnight. Love and Hugs, JB, LM and all the Sweeties

      1. I am sad, sad, sad. Biscuits has a respectable pedigree with Deputy Minister, and Roberto among others. Awesome Again for example. If not Kentucky, I was hoping for New York. If they want to go out and of the country, go to Toronto. It was good enough for Meghan. Adena Springs is near there.

        1. Dear Max:

          Actually, I’m very sad that Biscuits will go to Japan. Unhappy about DC too. Praying they stay safe. Love and Hugs, JB

        2. JudyB. I think of how much these guys give and then to end up so very far away from their home. No news ever about Zenyatta’s brother. Very upsetting. Those two wins by Biscuits in Dubai. I will never forget them or him.

        3. Very sad that Biscuits will be going to Japan. At least where he’s going has a very good reputation for care of their horses, though. I hope that Biscuits will be at Saratoga this summer and that I will get to see him before he leaves.

        4. Dear Judy and Max,

          I am very disappointed and sad about Biscuits, too. I was hoping that he would be in Kentucky or at least somewhere in the States. Will sure miss him.

          Hugs and Love

  7. Dear Z, COZ, ZI, BBG and DC:

    Have a pleasant evening and Happy Dreams. Love all of you so much. Hugs, JB

  8. Saw a picture of Medaglia de Oro today in my Bloodhorse email. He is such a handsome fellow Zenyatta must have swooned when she saw him. Their daughter is absolutely gorgeous. Love you, Z.

  9. Happy Birthday Lia.
