September 19, 2007 Palomino Pinto Mare
Dam: Misty's Heat Wave
Misty's Heat Wave surprised everyone in September 2007 with the unexpected and premature delivery of her fourth foal, a palomino pinto filly. Mare and foal spent a week at the local veterinary hospital. The little filly gained her strength so that she would be able to stand and nurse on her own. September Stardust's full name was a collaborative effort from members of the Chincoteague Pony Centre. She is called Ember for short. Ember is shorter than her mother and siblings due to her premature birth.
September Stardust spent many summers at the Chincoteague Pony Centre. She can usually to be found with her best friend Misty III. Due to her small size instead of being taught to ride she has been trained to be a trick pony. Ember has her own book titled Ember's Story: The Misty Miracle Pony by Kendy Allen. She is pictured alongside her dam and nine other Misty family members in the book Horses in Living Color by Barbara Livingston. She lives at Kerkaken Acres with her family herd.
