She's probably the prettiest horse on the place, and I think she knows it. It's hard to tell from the photos, but when you see her in person, she is really almost stunning. She's very small, but she packs a lot on that small frame of hers, and combined with her big eyes, her beautifully strong features, and that coppery red coat, she's fairly easy on the eyes.
Bambi is currently registered with the American Quarter Horse Association as "Beyond Fabulous." Her APHA (paint horse) registration is pending. Since she's solid I had put off her paint registration. Hopefully the same name is still available!
Bambi's sire is Eddie, whose pedigree I've already detailed. Her dam is simply known as Cilla.
An Encore Please's maternal grandsire was Hard Times Charlie, who isn't really well known, but was a fairly prolific sire of all-round horses in Missouri.
Bambi is my most "Three Bars" horse--she traces back to him 19 times. She has a lot of halter breeding, but is also a very cute mover. Because of her height (or lack thereof), I won't have the opportunity to put any breed halter points on her, but I do hope I can show her at open shows in the years to come. One day, when the timing is right, I hope to breed her to pass along these great genes, and those of her sire, but until that time, Bambi will be a career girl, and our pasture's little beauty queen.
