Comme Chez Soi delivers a filly

Comme Chez Soi
February 23rd, 2019

Comme Chez Soi delivered a filly at Old Tavern Farm early this morning, Saturday, February 23rd. Mom and foal needed some time to recover but they are both healthy and doing well. 

Greg Daley, Director of Farm and Breeding Operations provided an overview of the delivery and how they are doing: 

"Comme Chez Soi and her Malibu Moon filly are both doing well after what ended up being a distressing and potentially deadly red bag delivery. Fortunately, we were able to successfully deliver her foal and she is settling in well to life here at the farm.

Some of you may notice wraps on her hind legs she needs to develop some muscle tone in her hind end and we wrapped her hocks to protect them from getting sores while she learns how to get up and down. As with all of our young foals we will be keeping a close eye on her and we appreciate everyone tuning in." 

Below is a video after her delivery, once everyone was deemed safe and healthy. Stayed tuned on her Foal Patrol site for live footage. They will be on camera until 9 p.m. tonight. We look forward to more video updates and photos in the next few days!

The cameras are relocating to provide continued coverage in the field and stall at Claiborne Farm! New updates and videos will be coming soon.
