What do you get when you cross Wink N Atcha with Bette Blue Chip? The cutest little filly named “Pinkie Pie”.“Pinkie Pie” was the winning submission in the 2015 “Name That Foal” contest sponsored by Meridian Farms and the Alberta Standardbred Horse Association.
Three-year-old Sway S., of Beaumont, AB was the imaginative little girl behind the name that is inspired by the ‘My Little Pony’ world.
The ‘Name That Foal’ contest winners included the overall Best Name, 9 to 16 Best Name, (2) Best ‘Out of Province’ Names, Best Drawing and Best Story.
