    Thank you.! :)
    I`m so happy that everything is ok with both - colt and the mare. Smaile is a really good mother, though she`s rough sometimes. But that is good - there must be some discipline I guess.
    I finally decided on the name - he`s Caldelero S. We "christened" him today with some champagne.
    Here are pictures from Caldelero`s S second day. :)
    I also noticed that his ears look like devil`s horns. Don`t know if you can see that in these pictures though.

    Today I measured Caldelero`s height. He is 105cm ( 10.33 hh) high in his shoulder. I read somewhere that foals at birth are 60% of their adult size, I did some calculations and well... 10.33hh is 60% of 17.22 hh He must be born into some grandgrandgrandparent - Smaile is about 16.24hh and Chevers was 15.94hh when he was 3years old.
    That is not a bad thing though - Smaile`s and Chever`s paring had only one problem - small size. And look what I got - big, beautiful boy.
    Also my vet said that he has some very fine legs for this age and he does look very correct. :) Now I just cannot decide about breeding Smaile this year. I somehow got a perfect horse for my needs - he`s got everything I wanted from a horse. Guess I will wait this year and, if I`ll want to, I can always breed Smaile next year. :)

    I found some pictures with Caldelero`s grandsire and grandgrandsire.
    Chever`s sire Chico`s Son :


    And Chico`s Son sire Chico`s Boy:


    I somehow cannot find any more pictures with Chico`s Son, but he was very similar to Chico`s Boy and used in dressage. I was riding in the stable he lives, so I know also how bright he`s personality is. :) Also hope that Caldelero will have their talents as well. :)

    I was just admiring your foal on the foals of 2013 thread and then, lo and behold, I run across the real deal! Yay, congratulations again! It looks like Caldelero took after his sire's side, I can see his grandsire in him.
