When 2010 Horse of the Year Zenyatta produced a healthy colt by Bernardini at William S. Farish’s Lane’s End Farm near Versailles, Ky., it marked another chapter in the storied career of the popular mare owned by Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Moss.
Managing such a high profile broodmare is no easy task, and those responsible for the care of Zenyatta discussed the great mare’s pregnancy and delivery of the foal during a special edition of BloodHorse.com’s popular Talkin’ Horses podcast.
Joining Talkin’ Horses moderator Ron Mitchell and Blood-Horse magazine staff writer Esther Marr were Lane’s End manager Mike Cline and Charles Campbell and Donna Vowles, who manage the broodmare operation at the farm and were in charge of Zenyatta during her pregnancy.
The trio of Lane’s End professionals answered questions that included those submitted via Twitter, Facebook, and email about Zenyatta’s personality traits, daily schedule, and how she handled being in foal. They also offered insights into the new-born colt and the plans for him and Zenyatta over the next several weeks.
