July 18, 2005 Chestnut Pinto Mare

Sire: Island Wildfire

Dam: Misty's May Day Twister

Heart of the Storm's Pedigree

Misty's Heart of the Storm is Misty's May Day Twister's first foal. Twister had not accepted any stallions before Island Wildfire leading many to wonder, with Twister's advancing age, if she would ever have a foal. Heart of the Storm was worth the wait, a beautiful chestnut pinto filly with a heart shaped pinto marking on her side. Her name was submitted by a tourist visiting the Chincoteague Pony Centre. Heart was wowing the Pony Centre crowds with her cuteness and her antics just a week after she was born. She has grown up to be a beautiful mare and is a member of the Chincoteague Pony Drill Team.

Heart of the Storm has been the object of many artists' works. She has been depicted by Caitlin McCauley in a pastel portrait. She and her mother have been featured on a Cat's Meow piece. She also starred in her own children's book, written by Kendy Allen, as part of a children's book series about the Chincoteagues of the Pony Centre. Heart of the Storm is pictured alongside nine other Misty family members in the book Horses in Living Color by Barbara Livingston.
