Happy Birthday, Raven!

Today is Raven's (A Genuine Shot) 10th Birthday! It seems like just yesterday we found her on that very cold January morning in barn with her Dam(Mandy aka Special Arrow).

Raven has personality... that of a cat, most of the time. She likes attention when she wants it and the rest of the time you're better off leaving her alone. Ok, she's not that bad! But she's had her moments. She loves grooming time, she has many favorite places to be scratched and will definitely ham it up to anyone standing near her stall door for TLC or treats! Favorites being Peppermint candies and horse cookies!

Raven is presently 6 months along with her 3rd foal, by Zippos Goldn Mover (APHA stallion, We are keeping our fingers crossed for some color or LOTS of color! This foal has a full sibling, Jack (CES U Don't Know Jack), whom placed Res. Champion at the PA 4H State Horse Show in Yearling Gelding Halter!!!

I'm hoping for a filly this time, but as long as it's healthy and all I'm not too concerned. And like any true horse owner that thinks of their horses more like children than pets, I have already started thinking of Names. You have to plan ahead and have lots of options.

Filly Barn Names:
  1. Bella
  2. Peppermint

Colt Barn Names:
  1. None at this time

Registered Names:
  1. Zippos Hot Shot
  2. Genuine Zippo Gold
  3. Goldn Zippo
  4. Zippos Twilight
  5. Zip Into the Twilight
  6. Genuinely Zipped
  7. Genuinely Yours

These names are up for votes so please email me back with your Fav.s!

Here are some more pic.s of Raven with her 2006 filly, Maggie (CES Genuine Artist) by AQHA World Champion sire Indian Artifacts( and her 2007 APHA colt, Jack by APHA stallion Zippos Goldn Mover (
