Holly Mayo's 2004 Twice Royal colt

Holly Mayo (xGay Bar King) with her Twice Royal baby, taken April 1, 2004.

8 hours old in this shot, he was not very happy just then, being a totally constipated little fellow, and feeling it quite a bit.

Holly herself was bought to make this guy, although she proved a hard one to settle - without Regumate this foal would not be here.

I should have gotten farther back and zoomed in for this shot, as it exaggerates the size of her head. Then too, this angle makes her back far look shorter than it really is. You'll almost never see a side shot of Gay Bar King himself for just that reason. Still, she's good enough otherwise to excuse that.



Left and below - 8 days old and feeling better.
Picture at right taken April 20, 19 days.


Below, also taken April 20. Below, taken May 1, 1 month.


Caroline is a little reluctant about adding these to the site on grounds that "they don't do him justice". Well, getting right down to it, our pictures rarely do. Still over at the knees at a month old, but it's a little early to worry about that. Mom is belatedly getting some calcium supplement, so he theoretically gets some secondhand benefit from that, which ought to help straighten them up soon enough.

 

If time and inclination allow, we'll stand him up
for better shots before the winter coat grows in.
Meanwhile, the one below was taken Sept/05
