Welcome Home

Welcome Home, also known as Ellie, is Rubizza's 2003 foal, another typey and correct filly by the stallion Weltbekannt. Rubi fooled us entirely with this birth. She had little Ellie at 3PM on the afternoon of April 10th, less than an hour after we had carefully checked her and decided that she was far from being ready to foal. By the time we got to the foaling stall at 4PM, Rubi had her newest daughter up and nursing. Happily, all went well and mama and baby did beautifully.

Ellie was claimed immediately by my friend Inslee Baldwin who had spent many months eagerly awaiting this birth and hoping for a pretty filly. Her patience was well rewarded by Home Again Farm's ninth filly, who also happens to be pretty, athletic and sweet. Ellie went gone to her new home in Alachua, Florida after weaning. She was started under saddle as a three year old by my trainer Maya Sniadecky and was beautifully easy, willing, eager to please and has the same quick hindleg that her big sisters have.

Ellie is a full sister to Wintermaske, Wonderful World and Waltz with Me. She is just a little more proof of what a grand match Rubizza and Weltbekannt make.

In 2010, Ellie began a new career, taking to eventing with great enthusiasm.
