The riding ranch owned by the couple is called Down Under Color. Many of the horses bred by Jackie and Scott have won prizes at horse shows. Despite the couple’s knowledge and experience with horses, they were recently surprised with the birth of a filly. They called her Coco.
Coco was born with rare markings that once held great significance. In earlier times, it would have been designated as a war horse. These horses were highly prized possessions for the natives.
According to the International Horse Museum , a war horse is a pinto that has special markings. The pinto must be white and have a small patch that covers the top of its head and ears. The markings are called “medicine hat” or “war cap “. There are other characteristics that can increase the value of the warhorse.
It must also have a blue eye. Indigenous tradition holds that the blue eye of the war horse would transport the spirit of the tribe healer to the gods if he died in battle.
The natives believed that the war horse had special powers. It was thought that a war horse could keep the medicine man and the tribesmen safe from danger. The natives also believed that warhorses were capable of tracking game that would otherwise go undetected in the forest.
The natives would seek to steal warhorses from other tribes. They believed that the war horse contained the good magic of the tribe. This belief led to the trend for warhorses to be closely watched by tribes.
Jackie and Scott froze in surprise when they realized that Coco was a war horse. The couple shared the moment with the world through a video.
