It seems everything was lined up just perfectly for the birth of a special little filly at Clifton stud in Rosetta during the snowfall last weekend.
The Sporting Post website reported that Peter and Jenny Blyth welcomed a special foal during the snow that fell over the weekend of August 28-29, the special delivery coming just before 2am on an ice-cold Sunday morning.
Sporting Post reported: “The Clifton-bred filly is made even more special by the fact that she is by sire What A Winter out of a three-time Listed winner by Crusade, a Clifton-bred mare named Covered In Snow!”
Talk about all the stars aligning!
According to the publication, Peter said, “Our foaling procedure is the mares break water outside under floodlights and then they are brought into a sparkling clean foaling box with deep bedding to be comfortable and warm. So her mother Covered in Snow comes in with snow on her back to deliver a What A Winter filly! Absolutely ironic!”
Peter and Jenny are looking for a special name for the filly. If you have any bright ideas, send names to email@example.com
The publication says the proposed names will passed on for consideration.
