My “show name” is The Flight of Icarus, but my humans call me a lot of different names.
Icarus, of course – but also Icchy, Icchy Star, Sticky Icchy, Stookie, Stookie Star, Icchy the Destroyer, and “future Grand Prix jumper.”
You can just call me Icchy.
I’m a ten year old, 15.2 hand high American Thoroughbred.
I used to be a racehorse, but that didn’t last too long. I was always daydreaming about jumping. You can read all about it on my blog.
I’ve lived in a lot of places in my eight short years on this little planet, including Kentucky, Virginia, New York, Florida and Tennessee – and now I’m living in sunny Southern California! I love it here! I get to jump and work and play, and sometimes I even get to compete. My Mommy is my best friend and she taught me everything I know. Well, except how to be sassy. That one, I learned all on my own. I have to say it comes pretty naturally to me… And it’s nice to know that I can make humans laugh when I’m sassy, because I LOVE making everyone laugh!
I love to get treats, and my Mommy always give me a lot of treats. Food, of course, but jumping is also a treat for me.
I really love my life, and I can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings.
