(Black Lightning x Bataas Ebony)
1998 HOMOZYGOUS Black Mare
Co-owned with Joan & Will Rhodes
Wysper is a beautiful little mare!!! She was little when she was born--I was going to name her Mydnyte Kyss, but she was too little for a kiss, barely a whisper--so she renamed herself Mydnyte Wysper. I knew when she was born that I needed to sell her to help pay for a stallion that I had purchased the fall before. It was with great sadness that I let her go to Montana and Idaho when she was still a baby.
She was intended to be part of an Al Khamsa preservation program, but--as we know--life changes things. She was trained for riding and was sold to be a child's mount for awhile. She was never bred. But then she came up for sale again. And then that purchase fell through and ... As life has it's twists of irony, I was able to sell my stallion (Yes, the one I sold her to help pay for 9 years earlier.) and got her back Fall of 2007. However, friends of mine that co-own Sir Ravenn Mone with me, Joan and Will Rhodes, had wanted to buy her and asked if I would let them co-own her with me also. With a shortage of hay here, they were able to twist my arm and she is at their place in southern Missouri. I got to go down to see her that October and we enjoyed a sweet reunion. It was great to feel her remember me and welcome my hugs and whispers of sweet things in her ears.
We bred her to Shah Ad Milanne for a 2009 foal--her first. How I prayed for all to go right!!! (I have been so thrilled with my Shahleah that another Shah baby is exciting!) As with her, and most of my foals, I play around with names before I ever breed--I came up with Mydnyte Milanne or Midnyte Shahmann.
IT IS A PLEASURE TO HAVE WYSPER BACK!!!
