1964 Chestnut Pinto Gelding
Grandson of Misty
Sire: Phantom Wings
Sandpiper is his famous sire's only documented offspring as Phantom Wings died in 1964. He was out of a mare named Nora and is listed in the family tree in A Pictorial Life Story of Misty. Sandpiper was found by the Walker family tangled in a fence on a sandbar with Nora standing nearby. They freed the colt and nursed him back to health. He got his name from the sandbar he was found on and his grandsire Pied Piper. Sandpiper lived with the Walker's of Bar-W Ranch on Ridge Road on Chincoteague where he gave pony rides and greeted visitors.
