A New Nanning Son for Fenway

Sometimes things really are meant to be. After Nanning's sudden passing we
were able to purchase some frozen semen in the US which in itself was a
challenge as there really was not much available. Late in the spring of 2015 we
bred our Model Mare Wolkje and were ecstatic when the ultrasound showed an
embryo. Our plans with Wolkje are in the dressage arena so as not to disrupt her
training going forward, WI Equine flushed the embryo and placed it in Vienna,
our 9 year old Nanning mare. Poor Vienna never signed up for these duties, but
she completed her tasks admirably. She was sooooo big by the time she finally
foaled. On June 13, 2016 a beautiful Nanning colt was born just before midnight
to tears of joy. It had been over five years that any Nanning foal was born and he
truly was our little miracle with all the variables we threw at him . . . breeding
with frozen semen to flushing and placing the embryo and just the miracle of a
Friesian pregnancy and healthy birth. We named him Cicero fan Fenway and he
is just more than a little spoiled by his group of admirers. Cannot wait to see this
young man grow up as early on, he certainly has done his daddy proud.
