Whoa! Someone knows she's a cutie! Love the attitude.

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

Wow gorgeous little girl! She reminds me a lot of my filly Sky (personality wise) both sassy but super sweet! And I can relate with you about the bond you have with Soleil.. I've owned my mare Mayberry for 10 years now. Got her when she was just under 2 years old. Now she's 12 and this summer had her 1st foal! Because of the close bond Mayberry and I have Sky is such a friendly and trusting filly. She loves people and is always seeking out attention. Fae seems like such a sweetheart :)

Yes, she was the only one I chose to breed last year. Sorta wish I had more seeing how nice she is--LOL
However, she'll have 4 half siblings next year and I will breed her Dam, Solei back to Dream as well. She is indeed amazing, thank you, so I would be ecstatic to have another outstanding foal from that cross!
Solei is an excellent mother and she's passed on her sweet, gentle personality to Fae. Fae's sire is also exceptionally kind and well mannered, so Fae is just THE most people-loving baby I have ever seen.

Sorry I missed this Saucey!

I think many people underestimate the bond and understanding one can have that is a "bit" beyond the ordinary. Solei is one of those. Now-- I have another with this filly. Sometimes, you just "know." I'm am beyond grateful that Solei, whatever it is she has, she passes on to her babies. I know part of that is my training and early handling, but I give credit to the great trust, calm mind, and amazingly accepting personality that now TWO horses are gifted with. Some things are just inborn. I'm so fortunate to have been blessed 3 times with having had my dear Firestorm, Solei's sister, and now Fae-- the living essence of both exceptional spirits..

You are so fortunate to have such a spirit as well.

I think I'm going to go look for Firestorm pics.

One of my favorites of Firestorm, Solei's full sister, lost to me at a young age, and Fae's namesake.





Firestorm and I after a ride. She was SUCH a great companion.



Firestorm and Solei. They were inseparable.

Amp-- thank you for your interest. She was my heart. I lost her at only 7 a few years ago to a terrible, aggressive disease called Pythiosis.
"Swamp cancer": The increasing threat of equine pythiosis - DVM

I tried everything to save her, including the best Equine hospital in the state. She had the organism in her throat- one of only 2 cases ever reported, so her prognosis was grim, but even so she improved initially, but it began spreading again and I had to make the decision to euthanize her as she couldn't eat enough to sustain herself. I gave her her favorite things to eat and held her sweet face while she drifted off. I miss her terribly. But Fae is a blessing that shares her blood and her personality. She is SO like her, even down to her very similar blaze.

Firestorm was a great teacher and I owe all I do now with horses - to her.
