This big guy is All Eyes on Chip, a registered four-year-old Appaloosa whose grand-sire is pleasure sire, The Miracle Chip, one of the best-moving western pleasure horses in the industry. He's the sire of Honey's (King's Honey Twist) foal, who was due late in April. ..and we're still waiting. With Zippo Pine Bars bloodlines this baby's got a winning head start.

All Eyes On Chip

So, as the snow melts and winter finally turns to spring, Sooner begins to eat hay, become interested in what's in the water trough and enjoy being groomed from golden head to poopy tail, where her mother's nine-day heat has produced diharrea that gets spread across her baby backside with every swish of her tail. A quick cleanse and an administer of zinc ointment, soothes the savaged skin and sends this little tornado off on another belt around the paddock, hooves barely touching the ground.
Before the end of this month, her grandmother should give birth to her aunt or uncle, and before long the two foals will be cavorting together, causing I'm sure, all sorts of ructions. Wait for it.

On April 1, the weather improved enough for Sooner to go outside and frolic with her mother. She is definitely independent and scampered around the paddock with Charlotte in pursuit, until she tired and collapsed in her mother's hay. 40 minutes was enough to tire her completely.
