Mari was born as Spott’s Elegance, in Iowa, showed her grandaddy’s (Color of Fame) sparkle and kindness early on. She was destined to be a show horse, but really didn’t love the show circuit.

She didn’t have a purpose or a job and had withdrawn by putting up layers of emotion and fear.
Cindy met Mari in 2009.
