News from Denali Stud: Emotional Kitten and her colt are well. He's growing and developing nicely. The farm staff continues to wrap his legs whlie he is in his stall to help reduce tightness in the front tendons. Both mare and foal have moved to a larger paddock in the afternoon so the camera will remain streaming on their stall from approximately 7:30a - 1p each day. There will not be camera coverage in the paddock. 

Emotional Kitten has been rebred to The Factor and the farm staff will be monitoring her over the coming weeks. Below a sweet moment of Emotional Kitten20 nursing.
