1992 AMHA & AMHR DNA tested 33.25" Black Mare

Sire: Willowbrooks Moonshadow x Dam: Les Petites Avril


ET is one of our first Mini's, and co-founders of Wesco Farms as she is the 'E' in W-E-S-Co (Woody, her nephew and daughter Silhouette made up the W E S and Company of our name).

We bought ET with her daughter, Silhouette and nephew Woody on a rainy day in November 1999, pretty much on an impulse - you know long weekend away, stopped at a ranch, next thing you know you own horses!

When the trio were delivered, we were told, ET was due in May.  Due for what was my response?  Apparently it slipped the breeders mind to let me know I'd bought a pregnant mare! So, we fast-track learned about foaling/pregnant mares, etc. and that was our beginning into breeding Minis!

ET has been quite an educational mare as she's very smart and I've learned alot from her over the years.  The photo above from 1999, is her pregnant with Una.  She suckered me good on the "starving Mini" attitude they're so good at portraying! When Una was four months old the vet's informed me ET needed to lose 50 pounds!  She was that fluffy!!!

We've had a number of foals from ET over the years, and still have two of her foals (Una 20, and Ray 19) here and in 2018 five generations - ET > Una > Blessings > Trinket > Bolt for a few months.

ET has been retired for a few years now and is slowing down at the well lived age of 28. She lost her best, buddy, Maria at age 34 on Valentine's Day in 2020. We're going to sub in her daughter Una as our weanling babysitters this year. ET is a great influence as she doesn't put up with too much baby games, so they learn respect and herd manners.

ET is still known to flirt thru the fence with the boys - the hussy - but as far as I'm concerned her breeding days are long over!
