    Zenyatta gave birth to a colt last night. Adorable pics of mom and son up on the Zenyatta.com website. He weighed 130 lbs and looks a lot like Z. Blood horse mentioned a video but I haven't found it yet.

    Thanks to Team Zenyatta for being so open to all her fans!

    She's just such a beautiful horse! And the pictures are adorable. He really looks like her.

    First, :cheer2: So happy for a safe delivery and a healthy foal.


    Second: It seems as if the video was taken down for some reason, but someone was quick enough to Youtube a celebratory video and snuck the new video into it. starts at the 43 second mark

    Video of Z's Foal

    More Foal Pictures

    btw...since Moss seems to like the Police and Sting...how about Synchronicity as a name for Zenyatta's foal?

    Those are cute pictures, especially the one of the little guy lying down with his head down, too. And he definitely has Mom's ears, LOL.

    Hey, apparently all you have to do is ask. :cool:

    Cutest video ever. :swoon: What a kind person Anne Moss is. And that cute little colt, letting her cradle his head in her hands, kiss him on the forehead, and scratch him under the chin. Too cute and touching.

    Yes, and the poster can be ordered from the Champions gift shop on santaanita.com if you can't be there in person. I already ordered mine.:cool:

    I actually decided to order the print of Zenyatta dancing, and so the poster is a free gift. They are great in that shop. I got something else from them once, and it came just as ordered and in a timely fashion. What the heck.

    It was announced today that Zenyatta will be bred next to Tapit. Tapit is the sire of Hansen, last year's Juv. Male Eclipse winner and Breeder's Cup winner. Tapit has also sired many precocious young ones.

    Z and T

    Wonder if she will have a gray baby.

    I think the latest pictures of her and Z12 are just adorable. She is teaching him how to graze, how cute. And he now weighs 191 lbs! Zenyatta is proving to be a good momma.

    Thanks for the link, skipaway. Interesting to read in the postings that Zenyatta will be bred to Tapit in the next couple of weeks, and have her next foal most likely next year in March. Also learned that gray is a dominant gene and her next foal has a 50/50 chance of being gray.

    I love those gunmetal gray horses that sometimes shows up in horses...I'd love her to have one that color.

    Cute video. I thought the caption for the picture was funny, in that it listed Zenyatta in the left-to-right of who's who. :lol: As if anyone reading that article wouldn't know which one was Zenyatta in the picture.

    That's an intermediate phase. Grays all eventually turn white (Hansen's just unusually young to be mostly whited out.)

    I'm watching the Blue Grass right now and when Dr. Hansen said how everyone loved a white horse me and my brother instantly IM'd each other. Him: "Until you have to clean one." Me: "Until you own one and it rolls in poop." Every time I get bored of every single horse and pony I've had being a solid bay I look at the two piebalds at the barn and the grass and manure stains ground into the white and remind myself bay isn't so bad!
