Daisy had arrived at Saratoga Stud from England, and she often caught the eye of visitors to the ranch thanks to her beautiful palomino coloring. The team therefore bred her with one of their stallions, Treliver Decanter.
The average gestation period for horses is 11 months. Often, for example, stallions will impregnate mares in summer, and the foals will arrive the following spring. Over the passing months, then, Daisy’s pregnancy progressed normally.
By January 2014, though, the horse was a week overdue. However, it was then that a stable worker rang Benson to tell her that the mare had gone into labor, and the breeder and her husband arrived at the scene just in time to witness the birth.
