|SBR Tia's Apparition "Bebe"
FSHR - 2011 Appresian Mare
5 panel N/N - LPlp
Bebe is a dream come true for me. Since I was a young girl, I have idolized the big black feathered
horses from the movies. After seeing several Friesians in person, I knew I wanted one for sure. For
several years, I have contemplated breeding one of my Appaloosa mares to a Friesian to produce a
cross that would give me as close to what I was looking for as I could afford. When my friend Sandy
ended up crossing her Friesian mare with her foundation Appaloosa stallion, I knew I was destined to
have the foal. The deal was made shortly after Bebe was born and upon weaning she came home to
the Krazy K.
Both Sandy and I were incredibly surprised when Bebe popped out solid black. Her sire is Drea
Tapsghostwind, a black/white few-spot son of Pratt Sully Fire. While Bebe has started to show
characteristics in getting a white sclera and a partial sclera, we are waiting to see if she will get any
other coloring as she ages. As a 2 year old she started roaning over her back and hips and mottling
around her eyes and muzzle. In the summer you can see dark spots under her black coat so she
definitely has a pattern that is being suppressed by her black color.
Bebe is in the foaling stall and we are excited for her very first foal by Smoke.
