Died: Early 2020
Sire: Most likely K1 “Khartoum”, bay
Dam: N6E “Melting Snow”, sorrel pinto
Color: Bay pinto
Longest time spent with one band: 16 years with N2BHN “VIP’s Son”
Usual range: Tingles Island and surrounding marshes, and was usually found in the campgrounds and on the North End during the summer.
Interesting tidbits: Maggie’s presumed sire Khartoum maintained an enormous band of 22 in the early 80s, and no other stallion has even come close to that. Very few mares remained in one band for as many years as Maggie did. She was only with a new stallion because N2BHN died.
