Another favorite of the girls:

You can see what a huge mare Firestorm is compared to her sister. She was a good 15.1 and it looks like Fae may be taking after her Aunt.

Fae is a gangly thing right now and she would not be shown to best advantage.. she's thinning out quite a bit, and her head is as exotic as ever, but she is growthy as h**l!!!

I promise to get more as soon as I can. After all, she's representing TWO gorgeous mares, and a very handsome daddy- there's a lot to live up to!

Wow, that is awful. I'm sorry to bring it up, I'd wondered about it for a while and didn't want to bring up bad memories... I think she was absolutely stunning- I love larger Arabs. I think Fae definitely resembles her. All of your babies are beauties! :)

Don't be sorry. All things happen for a reason; we just don't always know what it is at the time.
I am glad you did. It gives me reason to remember and honor her, and that is very healing. She was an exceptional horse. Things such as this teaches us gratitude and to not take things for granted. I am very blessed with all the beautiful souls in the form of horses I have been lucky enough to share my life with.
You didn't bring up bad memories at all. Memories infused with love are always good.
When Fae was born with a very similar blaze - and walked about as if she knew everyone, fearless and very much an old soul -- it sorta freaked me out a little- but then.. I said to her, "Hello little girl- I know you."

Your posts about her always make me tear up. I can feel the love you had for her. If you believe in reincarnation it wouldn't be crazy to think she's coming back to you.

I do think it's time for some new pictures of Fae sometime soon though :)

I am a firm believer in Reincarnation. I asked her to come back to me before she died. I think she has..

She was just amazing. I can now talk about her without too many tears - more admiration and joy than anything else. I realize now she came to teach me, and I am ever so grateful to her.

TY Amp- for helping to keep her alive.. :)

I will be sure to post pics of Fae. I imagine I'm going to have LOTS of stories about her..LOL

Since we're on the topic of this bloodline..

This is Firestorm's and Solei's Grand-sire- Le Fire:





Their Grand-father, Le Fire even had a Breyer model created for them of he and his Dam, Susecion:

Where'd the grey go?! Genetics are strange things lol

I am her eyes, she is my wings. I am her voice, she is my spirit. I am her human, she is my horse.

Susecion's Dam was a chestnut and her sire was a heterozygous grey. He passed his chestnut gene to Le fire. For example, even though Dream is black, he has a chestnut gene which passed to Fae. The fact that he is heterozygous black allows him to pass on various coat colors.

Susecion (1965- 1993): “Susie” to her friends‚ Susecion is the only Arabian Hall of Fame mare to produce two double national champion mares. One mare offspring was both Canadian and U.S. national halter and performance champion. A son, Le Fire, sired a national champion mare. Purchased as a yearling for a mere $2,500 by first-time Arabian owners and breeders Dr. Fred and Florence Ragland‚ this gray mare went on to produce 13 offspring‚ seven of whom were champions. Her most famous was the stallion Le Fire, who sired Canadian and U.S. national winners in halter, dressage, hunter pleasure and reining.
