Season’s new foals are all the talk

THE first foals of the season have landed safely at Mungrup Stud, with the Narrikup thoroughbred stud welcoming four new deliveries.

More than 100 foals are expected during the season, which officially commences on August 1 each year and runs through to late November to early December.

Mungrup Stud’s Tom Croucher said the new season had got off to a smooth start despite the weather.

“The mares are like ladies, if they’re gonna foal – they’re gonna foal.”

Besides the weather making it a bit less comfortable, we’ve had a good start,” he said.

One of the first foals born this season was to the stud’s new stallion I’m All The Talk.

The colt is destined for the 2019 yearling sales along with the remaining new arrivals.
