News from the Lowry's

The Lowrys and our growing and diverse Urchinwood/Shanley Green menagerie are delighted to welcome this lovely Colt ( bay or brown ?) to our family.

Fox was born at about 4.30am yesterday , Sunday 7 November 2010. Tika ( his 20yr old, Anglo Dam) delivered him effortlessly and is doing her usual great job as a mother. This is her 5th foal. His sire is Sharon Haddock's lovely Trakehner Warmblood stallion Aparee. Aparee is also the sire of our black, 2yr old filly Alexander Park Indian Summer.

He is called Fox because when I first saw him - about 5 mins after birth, with his sac still around him - this big brown fox was stalking both Mother and Foal trying desperately to get the foal and/or the afterbirth. It was not easy to scare away !
