Homestead Stables was blessed with a new addition to our growing equine family. Good on the Rox, aka “Roxy”, one of the horses who call Homestead Stables home, gave birth to a happy and healthy red roan filly on the evening of March 23, 2019.
Sired by A Good Machine (Zippos Mr Good Bar) and out of a Radical Rodder mare, Roxy has been shown at open and AQHA shows as well as earning multiple wins at the All American Youth Horse Show. She had a foal in 2017 by Winnies Willy. Her new filly was sired by Justa Creepin and will also become a new fixture at Homestead Stables.
Lisa Haglund, Vice President of Marketing and development shared, “We are so blessed by the birth of Roxy’s filly. Spring and the Easter season are a sign of rebirth, and it was such a joy to share in the miracle of her own birth here at Homestead Stables. We look forward to watching her grow and flourish under the care of our stable manager Heather Payne and her team. I know our Heritage residents are also delighted and can’t wait to host their own “baby shower” for Roxy this month as they join us in welcoming our new addition.”
Visitors were able to follow the birth on a live stream camera that was installed specifically for that purpose. Although Roxy’s fully was born earlier than expected, many were able to celebrate this special occasion along with Homestead Stables. The camera will remain in the Stables now that the anticipated arrival is here so that people may still watch the interaction between Roxy and baby Ruby 24 hours a day.
