Horse Spotlight – Mare Dixie

Hello everyone! It’s time once again to feature another horse from the TRNP Herd.

Today’s ?Horse Spotlight? is 2014 Mare, Dixie. She is out of Firefly x Silver. When I began tracking the horses, Dixie was a yearling still running with her natal band. In April of 2016, Coal managed to steal the then 2-year-old Dixie from Silver and she has been a part of his band ever since. Dixie and Coal had a filly in 2017. She was the first and only foal for Dixie to date. She was adopted in 2018 and living in a wonderful forever home. Dixie has changed a lot over the last few years. When I was photographing her last week, I couldn’t help but notice how much she changed just over the summer. She is really starting to remind me of Silver. She has gone from that gangly yearling I first met to a beautiful young mare. Enjoy and thanks, everyone!
