"His father was Hurricane, who we very tragically lost last summer after he got tangled in some wire and suffered heat stroke," they wrote. 

"It was such a devastating loss, but this colt reminds us that life truly does go on. We've chosen the name Cyclone for him, in honor and in memory of his sire."
