Details:2001 APHA mare by A Danson Impulse and out of Zippin Black At Ya, by Liquid Best Side.
Barn name: Peanut.
Owned by: Mallory Beinborn,
Coon Valley, Wisconsin.
What grabs us: As a professional photographer, Beinborn has supplied many photos for use in H&R. At a recent photo shoot, she told us all about her own special mare. She sounded like a winner to us!
A diva: “She’s kind of spoiled rotten, and she’s very diva-ish. She knows she’s cute!” Beinborn shares. “You can see it in how she carries herself, and she’s got a little herd of ‘boyfriends’ at home. She thinks she’s pretty cool.”
Loves attention: “She really likes little kids, and she’ll drop her head down to hang out with them. She likes that they’ll brush her and tell her how pretty she is,” says the photographer.
Pretty versatile: “Peanut’s done Western pleasure; horsemanship; showmanship; and lately, we’ve picked up trail riding. She knows a lot and is fun to ride. She can go bareback or bridleless and do just about anything. She’s well trained,” explains Beinborn.
All for a cookie: “She loves those little horse cookies, and she will smile for them,” Beinborn says.
Always smiling: “If you don’t feed her fast enough, she’ll stand at the gate with her lip up. Or if you’re holding something and she thinks she can eat it, she’ll smile for it. It’s pretty funny; she smiles all the time.” See below for a video of Peanut smiling.
