After what seemed at times like a very long wait, Duchess was born on September 2nd at Angels Rest Farm. She was Maya's first foal. In the weeks leading up to the birth Maya had become enormous and we gave her the nickname 'the battleship' for being so large and grey. She was grumpy as well, but I can't blame her for that. When Maya first brought Duchess to meet us she was still wet and couldn't have been more than an hour old. She was still finding her feet and stuck closely to Maya's side. Maya in turn was most protective. Even Duchess's father Alexander was only granted closely supervised access. It was a priviledge to be close with them in those first hours.
