June 14, 1988 Chestnut Pinto Mare
Dam: Foggy Mist
Misty's Wind Spirit was Foggy Mist's fifth foal. She seems to be the only one of Foggy Mist's offspring to live well into adulthood. She was born on the Chincoteague Miniature Pony Farm and lived there for the first year of her life. Celina Boltinghouse gave her the name Wind Spirit to stay with the Native American theme in her line since her mother's sire, Mugwah, was a Native American word. After she was weaned Wind Spirit became best buddies with Misty's Sunpiper, a son of Beebe Breeze. The two youngsters spent lots of time together in the paddock, sometimes even enjoying the company of their ancestor Stormy.
The following year both Wind Spirit and Sunpiper were sold to Kendy Allen and went to live on a farm in Manheim, Pennsylvania with a herd of other Misty family ponies. There Wind Spirit flourished into a healthy and beautiful mare. She was a nice pony, but a bit standoffish, probably because she roamed with the herd on Kendy's farm.
Wind Spirit's role on the Allen farm was to be a broodmare. She had her first foal Misty's Partly Cloudy in 1992 who resembled her mother in color. 1994 saw the birth of another chestnut pinto filly, Misty's Windswept. The following year Wind Spirit had her first colt, a bay pinto named Misty's Colors of the Wind. Nicknamed Hot Shot, the colt was a carbon copy of his sire Lightning of Chincoteague and the first known bay pinto in the Misty line. In 1998, Wind Spirit had her last foal, a solid bay colt named Misty's Sundancer also sired by Lightning of Chincoteague.
The same year Sundancer was born Wind Spirit and Sundancer were sold to Luanne Stone and the pair moved to her farm in Arkansas. Luanne owned Wind Spirit for about six years before selling her.
Wind Spirit is currently owned by Heather Fortcamp and her two daughters. She has been a member of their family since 2003. "Windy" is adored by her family and has been ridden by one of Heather's daughters in Pony Club. She is the only and last living foal of Foggy Mist.
