Do you remember this mare?
Roseblossom who had hyperlipaemia last March.
She had a filly foal at 09:00 this morning by Wulfert v.d. groote woerd (Waffle’s dad).
A beautiful and very robust filly foal.
This little lady is to be called Gloria. Bergli Gloria because that is what Bjørn, the owner of Bergli Stud, shouted when he saw her being born!
Of course, I am thrilled as well. Roseblossom so very nearly died on us last March. Bjørn, Daisy, the vets and I worked tirelessly to keep her alive – she also lost her foal during her hyperlipaemia episode.
So Gloria is wanted, gorgeous and wonderful.
I am so pleased for Roseblossom, who still hates me, by the way!
I don’t care. As long as Roseblossom adores her little girl, that is all that matters. To be fair, Roseblossom allowed me to get near(ish) but I didn’t force my presence on them. Now was definitely not the time.
So, welcome to the world Bergli Gloria. You are truly loved but, most of all, you have made your mother 100% better from her horrendous illness last year. She grieved for her foal last March which made her healing more difficult as she had no will to live.
This is a good day in our lives. We did good.
