Magic is one of the Onaqui mares that were adopted by Bobby and Karen Strawbridge of Tennessee.  Magic has a colt that is identical to her ,  minus the little star she has in the middle of her forehead. According to Karen, Magic is Bobby's baby girl.  She talks with him when he is able to get out on the front porch.  Bobby has been ill this past spring and summer and misses being able to take care of her. Magic  hasn't forgotten her ” Daddy” and always puts in an appearance when he is around.
Bobby named  her Magic because she looks like Pat Parelli's Magic and she just as sweet.
When Bobby and Karen first brought their Onaqui Mustangs home, Magic was  the first one who accepted their touch.  At first Bobby did a lot of butt scratching until she finally figured out that the head scratch feels good too.  It takes a lot of time and patience to win the trust and heart of a wild horse.  But to Bobby and Karen Strawbridge it is a rewarding labor of love.
The Strawbridges have 5 mustangs they adopted right off the range. They also have several off spring of their mustangs and a wild donkey they adopted from the BLM as well.
