Meet Maia – Born April 20, 2007

Playing-with-MaiaOn April 20, 2007, our 6 year old Paso Fino mare, Tori, gave birth to her first foal.  The filly is a stunning smokey buckskin color, with black mane, tail, dorsal strip and lower legs, three white stocks and a star on her forehead. We have named her La Maia de Mistico or Maia for short.  Maia in Greek mythology was a goddess, the eldest of the Pleiades and is also the “brightest star” in the Pleiades constellation.  Maia is certainly the brightest star of our herd of Paso Finos.  Maia is now a yearling and plays the seven games of natural horsemanship, hands you her hooves, ties, leads, loads in a trailer and will pony like a pro.  With imprinting and natural horsemanship it is amazing how far and how fast you can bring along a young horse.
