A star is born!

Yee haw! Here are photos of one day old Oaxaca. A filly AND maybe black? Sending off dna so I won't drive myself crazy wondering if will go grey or will go black. First foal of Fantasma, mare that was sold as a baby and back here (not sure if forever or for a while) and by Gitano. Fantasma's owner is hopefully coming soon to see us all as even knowing how saintly Taz is, she has to see for herself what a calm and perfect mom Tax is.
This filly is so like her aunt, Enigma. Typically, I feel no two foals are ever really alike but both in her look and her personality, (and having been born on a rainy night!), she and Enigma are the closest I think I've ever had. A great thing since Enigma is one of the most wonderful soulful creatures ever. Something that comes from the Dehesa line gives an extra lovingness to these horses (see Dehesa grandson, Chulo, for an example).
Named for the State in Mexico, the starter of my O year, I had a feeling before birth it was a girl and had to have that name.
Thanks, Laurie, for entrusting me with Tazzie and the opportunity of welcoming this filly into the world. She has to be for sale but if black, sure would be tempting to keep to breed to Wanapum. I know, I know...I sound like a broken record.
