My name is Presto ‘the horse who lived’


My name is Presto and my mom says I need a job. 

She’s not my real mom but thats not what I’m supposed to write about today. I’m supposed to write about who I am. 

My name is Presto and I like to call myself ‘the horse who lived.’

Mom has an audio book she listens to when she is in the barn and the story is about ‘the boy who lived.’ 

My name is Presto and I write blogs.

He can’t remember his parents and neither can I.

He has a lightning scar on his forehead. I have a scar on my forehead.

He does magic and my name is Presto.

As you can tell, we are practically the same. 

Well, except he’s a boy and I’m a horse. 

I’m supposed to include my age: 15 months.

My best friend: Lincoln.

My favorite thing: green grass. 

My least favorite thing: horse flies. 

Mom says I should tell you that you can write back. 

I have to write again next week (she’s making me do this)

The horse who lived,

    Such a very smart young horse you are, Presto! Love your blogs! Be good to your momma and help her!

    Presto, I have three just like you. Two are 17 months old, one is 5 months old. They are living with uncles right now learning to be horses. After they learned to lead, give their feet and take wormer! They wanted you to know you’re not alone…and life is good for foals who get to live.

    Presto’s signature is so cute! I cannot wait to see what you have in store for this guy. I followed you when you were training Jack. How is Jack doing? Looking forward to reading about his story!

    Pleased to meet you, Presto! I’m enjoying your mom’s videos introducing you to older horses who are teaching you how to “horse.” ? And at only 15 months you’re turning out to be a good equine teacher yourself. May you have many years of living!!

  6. Wendy on August 26, 2017 at 9:02 am

    So happy you lived to tell your story. Keep the magic going!

    Presto, you are a handsome son of a gun! At 15 months, if you had an hour meter on your shoulder, how much time has Mom spent developing you? Do you lead? Accept the farrier? Trust dewormer paste? Curious mind wants to know ?

    Love Presto….in a crazy world..this makes me smile..Thanks

  9. Melody on August 25, 2017 at 9:24 pm

    Love this! Love all your posts!

  10. Nancy McCleary on August 25, 2017 at 9:19 pm

    Presto…this is awesome! Your story will make a wonderful kids book as you grow. I know I certainly will be ! Thank you for this!

  11. Kim on August 25, 2017 at 8:40 pm

    I’m friends with the FB page where you came from Presto, and have followed their story for 2 years. I am very happy you were chosen by your “mom”, you are a lucky pony!!

  12. Donna on August 25, 2017 at 8:33 pm

    Oh Presto, you are adorable. All appys have special powers, but you are magical. Don’t forget to remind your mom that because of your appitude that you will learn on your own schedule and not a minute before.

  13. Tanya Marical on August 25, 2017 at 7:26 pm

    Hey, ya, Presto. I’m Laredo. I live with my Hay Lady at the end of a red dirt road in Oklahoma. They tell me I’m a Tennessee Walker. All I know for sure is I’ve got a strut that is fine…fine. People say Hay Lady rescued me..but actually she just listened and heard that I was key to her rescue. You hang in there, kid, and learn lots. People talk if you’ll just take time and listen.

  14. Pam Egbert on August 25, 2017 at 7:24 pm

    Stacy, I love this. Maybe Presto can get more people to adopt horses like him. It is sad what the industry is doing and those who are thrown away like they don’t matter. Thank you for saving the two you picked out. I know they are in good hands and can’t wait to read more.

  15. Stacey Harkcom on August 25, 2017 at 7:11 pm

    I love Presto! I have a 15 month old nurse mare foal also. Her name is Latte and I am following your and Presto’s journey with much interest!

  16. Joy Schuetz on August 25, 2017 at 7:09 pm

    This is great…..especially when I read it to my Great Grand Kids….the youngest is a soon to be five year old girl who plays continually with horses….not baby dolls, horses and a few dogs. She has a collection here at my house and they are the first things she goes to play with…while sitting in one of the saddles I have in my living room. Presto will become her special friend after reading this to her. I am anxious to here more about Presto and “his life”. What a clever horse you are Presto.

  17. Kathy on August 25, 2017 at 6:54 pm

    Hello Presto!
    It’s nice to see you growing up so nicely with your human mom and friends. So nice to hear from you and hope to hear how your new job is working out.

  18. shelley on August 25, 2017 at 6:22 pm

    Love this Stacy! I love Presto too! Great Idea, I as well am looking forward to your next blog!

  19. Robyn Jackson on August 25, 2017 at 6:19 pm

    That is adorable! Hello Presto! Very nice to meet you?
    I look forward to hearing more about you. I just want to say … you have a very lucky adopted mom. You could not be in a better place. Please post more pics… I want to watch you grow up
    Ps… be glad you are not in Texas right now… we are about to be hit with a hurricane?

  20. Brenda Paulson on August 25, 2017 at 6:13 pm

    Oh Presto, you are adorable. I look forward to your future posts. Try to use that magic wand to zap those horse flies. 🙂

  21. Barbara Means on August 25, 2017 at 6:10 pm

    Can’t hardly wait for your next blog Presto. You sound like a very interesting horse.

  22. Stephanie on August 25, 2017 at 6:07 pm

    Salutations, Presto! Do you have a friend that floats in the sky? Eddie needs a loyal sidekick! So what do you want to duo with this “job” thing? Help people with their dementors? Play a game of quiditch? Travel the world and different terrain for horcruxes? Looking forward to your journey. A fellow wizard loving horse mom.

  23. Andrea T on August 25, 2017 at 6:04 pm

    Horse flies are the worst. Can’t wait to learn more about you!

  24. Lesia Lowe on August 25, 2017 at 6:02 pm

    hay Presto!! My name is Lesia(pronounced Lisa) my mom wanted it to be different so she spelled it weird!! so… can you ask your mom if she is going to do videos of your training when you get big enough like the Jac videos? …now you are a blogger like your mom!! 🙂

  25. sue on August 25, 2017 at 5:52 pm

    Nice to meet you, Presto. I will be looking forward to your next blog!
