Una, day old foal.

Wesco Farms Bella Luna

Una was the first foal we had back in 2000. We bought her dam in foal to Eagle, who was already in Australia at the time (We didn't know Una was on the way until her mom was delivered to us!). Una has been a lovely addition to our herd and is a lifer here. Una has gone oversize, so we turned in her AMHA papers, which while legal was unfortunate, as her first foal, Wesco Farms LM Enter the Shaman, topped out at 32", but with AMHA's policies was unregisterable.

Her second surprise foal was Blessings, as we didn't know Una was pregnant - Una is a sneaky pregnant mare - as she came down off the hill on Mother's Day with her filly by her side.

Our Breeding Philosophy

Wesco Farms has an unconventional breeding philosophy, in that we like a short foaling season (April foals ideally for our climate), and have chosen to NOT breed mares every year.

Our preference, is to put stallions to mares around May 1 and take them out May 31st for those April foals. Our stallions get a brief window - maybe one-two heat cycles depending on the mare. We're fine with a less than ideal cover rate, as we've dealt wit winter, summer and fall foals, April is our sweet spot!. We just don't want people to "assume" mares are at fault for what appears to be a sketchy foaling history as many mares do not get bred for a couple or three years depending on life circumstances; stallions chosen for that year; etc. AND rarely, do we breed a mare back after foaling.

We're including individual mare's breeding history below.
Please contact us! with any further questions or clarifications!
