May 23, 1992-August 13, 2022 Chestnut Pinto Mare
Great Great Granddaughter of MistySire: Lightning of Chincoteague
Dam: Misty's Wind Spirit
Misty's Partly Cloudy was Wind Spirit's first foal and a chestnut pinto very much like her mother. Partly Cloudy was born on the Allen's farm in Pennsylvania and was named by Marguerite Henry. She was trained under saddle and competed in shows in Western and English pleasure. She was also part of the Chincoteague Drill Team for many years. Partly Cloudy also spent several summers at the Chincoteague Pony Centre.
Partly Cloudy had her first foal in 1997 the bay gelding Misty's Moonlight sired by Lightning of Chincoteague. In 1999 she had the solid chestnut mare Misty's Desert Sun sired by Red Elvis. A few years later Partly Cloudy contracted EPM, a severe equine disease, and was ready to quit living. However through the Allens' excellent care and devotion Partly Cloudy was able to recover and bounce back to her normal spunky self.
In 2005 Partly Cloudy had a chestnut pinto stallion Misty's Red Cloud, sired by Island Wildfire. Partly Cloudy's fourth foal was born in 2008 and is a solid chestnut stallion named Misty's Riptide sired by Cezanne. Her second daughter Misty's Firestorm sired by Tuffer Than Leather was born in 2010. Partly Cloudy's last foal is a 2012 chestnut pinto filly named Misty's Summer Breeze also sired by Cezanne.
Partly Cloudy had a good long life and never lost her attitude and spicyness. She passed away peacefully at home on August 13, 2022 with her friend Oreo by her side.
