broodmare, Decup (we call her "Baby") has had some disappointments. Her
first foal (2005), a colt by Rare News, was born premature and never survived.
Her second foal (2007), a filly by Rare News, died at birth from an aneurysm.
Baby went through a time of depression and poor health following the last foal
she lost. She is now strong and healthy again -- and on March 3, 2009, she
delivered a big, solid, good-boned Rare News colt
-- and he's her pride and joy!
