Epona was born just knowing she was special. The blackest foal I've ever seen with the most beautiful eyes. A daughter of the legendary Irish Entertainment and a keeper for the future of our breeding program. We just love this filly!
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. 🙂
