Foal Futurity Awards Announced!
The 2009 Foal Futurity Winners have been announced!
Dolce Elise WF (Dressage Royal x Savannah WF) has been named The Top Foal in North America! Her Foal Inspection Score was a 9.0
Dolce is very precious to us as we nearly lost her dam Savannah a few weeks before Dolce's birth. Savannah hung on to raise her filly for a few months and then tragically passed away on the Fourth of July. Dolce has been a joy from the first minute we met and is an 'old soul' - very self possessed, calm and with the intangible qualities that have ensured this little champion a home for life here at Watermark Farm.

Our pure product of Watermark Farm breeding - Aloysius WF placed Third in the East Coast Breeders Futurity with his Foal Inspection score of 8.8. He is by Avebury WF out of Amelia WF (by Again and Again) and continues to impress us with his powerful, balanced gaits and sweet nature. Add in his charming expression and long legs - well, we shall see what the future hold for this young star!
