No, this is not the famous duo of Hannah Davis and her talking white horse of DIRECTV television fame.
In fact, Holly Harris of California, who is pictured with her gray OTTB Full of Cuteness, never even saw the commercial that might easily have been inspired by this beautiful shot.
In this scene, Holly Harris poses with the mare she adopted from the California charity Neigh Savers last July.
Noting that she worked to help her mare overcome “fear issues,” Davis says the photo was meant to evoke feelings of calm. “I think it is a good representation of the peace horses can bring to our life,” she says.
Full of Cuteness:
New name: Chardonneigh
Sire: Marino Marini
Dam: Cute Move
Foal date: March 21, 2008By day, Davis attends court-reporting school in pursuit of a career as courtroom stenographer. And in her free time she enjoys hours perfecting her connection with her mare. An equestrian since she was a little girl, Davis rides Full of Cuteness, who was renamed Chardonneigh, in the Jumpers.
She has always been a fan of OTTBs. It was another photo that led her to her dream horse.
“The first horse I ever owned was a granddaughter of Spectacular Bid, and when I started looking for a new horse after selling my Warmblood, I wasn’t super serious at first. Then I found an ad and her picture, and it was love at first sight,” she says. “She has her fear issues, but she is seriously the best horse I’ve ever had. She’s just my puppy dog.”
The pair make a perfect picture. Perhaps they could be understudies for Hannah Davis and her Horse commercials!
