Below is a performance at the Midwest Horse Fair in Madison, Wisconsin.
Because of her performance schedule she wasn't bred again until 2010 and gave birth August 19th, 2011 to a big filly again by Raven. This filly was named Bow (for Ribbons and Bows). She went to another great home.
Ribbon was bred back to Raven and gave birth April 25th, 2013 to another gorgeous filly. This filly stood head and shoulders over all the other foals born that year.
Ribbon was taken to the Iowa Horse Fair with the vaulters and was put to work as the half time entertainment for a huge rodeo.
They were use to all those small quarter horses and had never seen such a huge mare performing at a rodeo. Of course she got lots of attention.
Ribbon was used in our Friesian demos, she made such a wonderful bad guy with her huge body. She didn't mind all the weird costumes she had to wear each year. Below are a couple of her more notable costumes. She was Maleficent's dragon in the 2015 IL horse fair play:
and the Big Black Pearl in the Pirate show wearing the pirate flag in 2016:
Ribbon delivered another filly on May 16th, 2015. This filly was by Valiant and we were amazed at how much she loved kids.
She was so comfortable with them that she would stay laying down while they all petted her. Ribbon was an amazing mom to her foals. In 2016 she gave birth to her last foal and this one was a colt born Sept 12th, 2016. Ribbon leaves behind this 2 month old colt, Titan, who will need to learn to drink out of a bucket.
Below are just a few fun pictures we have of Ribbon.
We are SO going to miss this mare!
