My new baby was delivered today. She is by Silvio out of a Chenin Blanc mare. Boy, she's even nicer than I remember! Of course, she's not halter broke, has never had her hooves trimmed, and I don't think she's even been de-wormed. That is pretty easy stuff to fix when you are in loff!
This evening, she came right up to me and wanted kissing and scratches. In the stall, she was very brave and stood like a champ for her first de-worming (small dose of course, we don't want to colic). I'm sure she'll perk up in a few weeks once she is on grain and good grass, but we're going slowly. Silvio tends to through THE BEST BRAINS. I can't get over how this filly stops and thinks before reacting. Priceless!!
Now all she needs is a name. I would like to stay with an Si if at all possible. My last two Silvio babies were Silvation and Sinsational. This one is a keeper, so she needs a great name.

Thank you for all the wonderful names...wow!! I shot a video of her this morning, but my internet is down at home, so I can't up-load any pictures. It was hard trying to get the video because she followed me everywhere and then wanted hugs and kisses. I can honestly say she is the SWEETEST horse I've ever owned...and I've owned 100's of horses over the years.
As soon as I return home, I'll post some pics and then video. I'm out of town for the next eight days for some much needed R & R. Hopefully, we will have settled on a name by then.
