The new arrival at four days old.

A few minutes before midnight on December 12 Silver Crescent welcomed her first son – a bay colt by the pure Polish sire Pilot (Fawor x Pipi).

With preparations under way for the team’s next endurance ride at the weekend, we’d only just gone to bed when the foaling alarm had us up and running.

The colt is greying but was born bay with a dorsal stripe and vertical striping at his withers. He has a small, odd-shaped star and a white coronet on his near hind leg.

He has quite a personality already!

He has two older half sisters, both pure Crabbet: Clouded Moon and Southern Star.

This colt is yet to be named but will follow the same ‘celestial’ theme of his family.
