Hurricane's Pedigree

Hurricane was Windy's fifth known foal and was sired by his half brother Cyclone. Cyclone was turned out with the Misty mares and allowed to breed with them indiscriminately. Strangely he had a two years older brother that was also named Hurricane. Hurricane takes after his mother in his tall and rather thin stature. His birth was announced in the Virginia Beachcomber.

He lived most of his life on the Chincoteague Miniature Pony Farm. Celina Boltinghouse was training him to become a trick horse, like Cloudy. Hurricane soon learned to stand on a stepstool, shake hands, give kisses, rear on command, and also bow. He was also broken to ride. Hurricane did live up to his name and was somewhat difficult to manage at times. Hurricane was a stallion for several years, and was known to have sired Wings O' Mist out of Beebe Breeze in 1990 and Surf Dancer out of Chemina Mist in 1993.

Please Note: There was a feral stallion on Assateague named Hurricane, and should not be confused with the Misty descendant. Nor should he be confused with his older brother by the same name.
