The first couple of pictures are of Skype during February 2010 when she was just a couple weeks old.

Skype at the end of April and 2 1/2 months old

Skype’s Jockey Club registration photos at four months old

In December 2010, ten months old

In February 2011…one year old

In August 2011, 1 1/2 years old and about two months from the September sale

Beginning of September; three weeks before the sale

And finally…this photo was taken on Sept. 22, the day before the sale

For anyone that did not see the results, Skype sold for $7,000 to Jose Garcia Ronzino, agent for Luis Morales. Thank you to everyone for all the support. I was overwhelmed with all the kind words that were sent to me throughout the week. I’ll post in a few days some thoughts about my first sales experience. So stay tuned.

    Oh my, Skpe has turned out to be such the lady . She looks beautiful in her last picture. I wish her next ‘chapter’ will be followed here somehow. Please let us know what her registered name is, so I may watch her in the horse racing community. I can only guess how emotional this time has been for you.. but, we all have Sky, Faith, and the ‘Lil Stevie Wonderboy foal to come. My warmest wishes to you and your family, and continued success on the road you travel on.
    a bit off topic… I’m the ‘proverbial best’ Aunt & Uncle in the world, according to our neices and nephews..But I would be so proud to call you a ‘ son’ after reading you, meeting you & your family and following your journal here.

    …It’s been a while since you had a chance to update your site, and I hope my note finds you happy, healthy & Merry during this Holiday Season. I wish you a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year ! . And as you go into 2012, I know that the saying the ‘Sky’ is the limit’ applies to you, and all things are possible. Best wishes.
