At the end of the afternoon this red fillie came into the World. She is the first foal of our so well-known mare Hopkins The Jokers Moonlight Ink. After 2 days I finally found the name for this oh so little, oh so refined fillie. IMH, short for Ieniemienie Miniature Horses, Slick, the nickname of her Sire ERL Pattons Smooth Operator, Inks, after her Dam, Red Hot, as she is one red hot little fea, Dixie Chick, as she is pretty pigheaded.
So IMH Slick Inks Red Hot Dixie Chick is her name, or also known as Hottie. From the moment her nose stuck out, she was active. She stood rather quick, found the milk bar (nipples), defecated and started bucking around in the stable. So small, so active, so pigheaded, Red Hot Dixie Chick just had to be her name.
When she moves, she always has that little tail straight up in the air. She struts around. We look forward to a bright future together with our little girl and hope that she will rock the ring just like her parents did. And she did that at her first show, the 2018 AMHA European Championship. Her first title at 3.5 month old is:
2018 AMHA European Champion. Next to that she got a 1st premium at the NMPRS mare examination. At the NMPRS examination as a yearling she got a beautiful 2a premium.
Below her life in pictures from birth to now.
