Two year old Pepper is three years younger than her brother Magnet, two years younger than Ridgecrest. When she was “stolen” from her birth band at ten months old, her older brothers were still “living at home”.
In the two months before the gather and not counting her birth band, Pepper lived with three different studs and was continuously chased off by the mares of said studs.
Perhaps being “chased off” is how she avoided the gather. Since she’s lived in Cinnamon’s band, she’s lived in harmony.
