Just one month ago, we were all relieved when Starr Bear delivered her First Dude filly. Today, we celebrate Starr Bear19 turning one month old. Both mare and filly are great and enjoying the paddocks at Gunston Hall in Kentucky.

Double Diamond Foal Flag

After the long awaited birth of Starr Bear 19, we learned that Double Diamond Farm has a sweet tradition of raising a flag when a foal is born. Melissa Anthony shares "The flag, or changing of the flag is an indication to everyone a foal was born. The flag is changed each time a foal is born, blue for it's a boy and pink for it's a girl." Pretty fun! Here is a image of the flag hung for our latest Foal Patrol filly.
