Spring is definitely here. Yesterday, in her characteristically impetuous style, Spitfire (Annatelle) delivered a perfect filly foal a full two weeks ahead of schedule. The youngster is by the Arab stallion, Redhouse Condor, and is typical of his stock: chestnut with four white socks and a white blaze.
Spitfire was covered in the week leading up to Flowerhill last year and continued to participate actively in riding club life until being turned out for the summer.
Redhouse Condor has several representatives in the club already. His son Dancer is ridden at present by Joanne McBride while Libby’s current mount, Mai, is also by him. And Keary and Anne have a 2-year old Condor filly out of Keary’s lovely thoroughbred mare.
