April 13, 1994 Chestnut Pinto Mare
Sire: Art Deco
Dam: Misty's Twilight
Marguerite's Misty Morning, also known simply as Maggie, is the product of two famous dressage horses. Her sire is the famous pinto Dutch Warmblood Art Deco and her dam is Misty's Twilight. She was born Marguerite Henry's birthday, hence her name. Marguerite was born on Stolen Hours Farm in Florida and spent the first few years of her life there.
In December 1999 Maggie was sold to the Holbrook family as a surprise Christmas gift to 11 year old Ashley. She made the long journey from Ocala, Florida to Taos, New Mexico. Unfortunately she colicked on her first overnight stop and had to spend several days at a university veterinary hospital. Nearly the entire staff had pictures taken with Maggie and many brought their children and grandchildren to have their pictures taken with her. Maggie made it to New Mexico on Christmas Eve and was tucked away in the barn without Ashley's knowledge. On Christmas morning Maggie met Ashley in the barn and then was let loose to run around in the riding arena. She made quite a first impression by galloping full speed in the arena to jump the gate and ran back to the barn.
Maggie participated in hunter/jumper events in New Mexico and Colorado before moving to Folsom, Louisiana. She continued to participate in shows after the move including a special show where she and Ashley turned in a nearly flawless performance. Maggie had been upset in a new environment, a lighted covered arena, and had refused every jump in practice but twenty minutes later the pair took first. Many people have tried to buy her through the years, admiring Maggie for her talent and lovely conformation.
Marguerite's Misty Morning is currently living at Holly Hill Farm in Benton, Louisiana. She loves kids and is often used for lessons as well as competing in shows. Maggie continues to be a wonderful friend and everyone who meets her falls in love with this very special mare.
