Ashado has been rebred to Frosted

Ashado and filly are enjoying their days out in the field at Gainsborough Farm. They are both doing really well and Ashado20 turned one month old on April 6. 

After a smooth and quick delivery of her foal last month, the team felt Ashado was in good health to be rebred to Frosted earlier this week. Below a short video of them together in the paddock.

News from Gainsborough Farm: Ashado and her filly are doing great. The farm staff noticed the filly had gone a little upright in her front fetlocks so they put some sweats on to help them to relax. The two of them went to a bigger field today so the camera team is rotating the cameras to keep them in view. They have been placed with other mare/foal pairs so she has some more friends to play with. Stay tuned for more updates.

Ashado and her filly are both doing great at Gainsborough Farm. They are spending a great deal of time out in the field which allows for lounging, playing and lots of activity.

The filly is very active and is showing a strong personality, just like her mom. Watch the video below to see her long legs and spritely personality in action.

From the look of things, Ashado20 is showing signs of that she will turn grey. The farm staff captured some recent close-up photos and she is exhibiting some grey around her eyes and has grey hairs throughout her coat. These are early indications that she will turn grey. 

The grey gene causes progressive depigmentation of the hair. Horses that inherit this progressive grey gene can be born any color, then begin to gradually show white and grey hairs mixed with the color throughout the body. Usually the first signs of grey hair can be found on the head, particularly around the eyes.
