Machine Made's first foal crop is off to great success. His first foal to show, Maid U Look, won the Limited Two Year-Old Western Pleasure class at the Little Futurity on Monday with Kyle DeFreece in the saddle. "It is so much fun seeing the first Machine Made hit the show pen," owner, Dr. Cory Seebach says. "His ability as a show horse and now a sire are a true testament to the qualities of both his sire, A Good Machine, and his dam, Gypsys Little Image."

The wild flowers are blooming, and Facebook newsfeeds are filled with photos of cute newborn foals. It must be spring! Unfortunately, while some mare owners are excitedly sharing photos of their future champions and are working to find that perfect name for their new foals, others will be dealing with the heartbreak of losing a foal and wondering what went wrong.
