I cannot even begin to express how special this filly is to us. Derrick and I shared many conversations about the plan to bring Windhover Regency up close into our herd. It is our goal to preserve these wonderful old lines. Hours of conversations with Will Janzen about our dream and vision. We purchased frozen semen from Windhover Regency just before Will Janzen sadly passed away. Will said he was proud of what we were doing and shared many stories with me. I am honored... I know in my heart that today he is smiling down on this very special filly. Thank you so much...
Her name, Epona, was revered in ancient times as the goddess who was the loving protector of horses and other animals. She was also a goddess of fertility, rebirth and abundance. The Romans saw her as the protector of their cavalry. The name Epona means "Divine Mare".
Epona is homozygous for black and she is full of character. She is destined to be a future riding partner and breeding mare to produce very special foals for Morgan lovers who want these wonderful old lines.
There is something about her that is just a little extra special. Rafter Bar D is blessed. Enjoy Epona's slideshow below. 🙂
