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.

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.

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.
