Choctaw Indian Pony This pretty little Choctaw Pony filly was born during the June 2013 Super Moon. She is almost all white with minimal red paint markings. Her mother is Goblin and her sire is Lakna.
Choctaw Indian Pony Tahiyah is a pretty sorrel and white paint Choctaw Indian Pony filly. She was born in late June/early July and is about a week younger than her half-sister, Celestial Moon. Her mother is Angel and her sire is also Lakna. Mustang fact: When talking about horses, a sire is a horse’s father.
Spanish Mustang One early October morning in 2012, Silver Aster greeted us with a surprise. She had unexpectedly given birth to a handsome red colt that our staff calls Little Red Aster. His grandmother is Blue Aster. They carry the DNA of the Sorraia Mustang whose bloodlines go back to the Spanish Jennet horses that came to the New World with Christopher Columbus.
American Mustang Phantom, an American Mustang colt, was born on the wild side of the Sanctuary high up along the steep canyon walls where few humans go. His mother, Ghost Dancer's Shadow, hid with her precious foal among the Ponderosa Pines protecting her colt from predators until he was strong enough to run from danger with the rest of the wild horse bands.
All newborn horses are called foals. After a year the girls are called fillies and the boys are colts until they reach the age of 4-5 years old. Over the age of 4 or 5 the females are mares and the males are stallions or geldings.
