Gush Thread: Beowulf gets a filly (updated 5/12/22)

Some COTH friends have asked me when I will update the COTH-family… and now that the baby has been with us a week, I think it’s time.

Last week, our family farm welcomed a hallmark addition – a beautiful Sir James x Desert Moon Hanoverian 6m/o filly bred by Hof Mendenhall Hanoverians.

Her registered name is Serenity HM - but we haven’t figured out a barn-name for her yet. I’m taking suggestions. She’s so personable, but has opinions. The boys are just enamored with her and she is a little riot. She stalks the chickens around the paddock and sleeps on fresh piles of hay.

My plan for her is dressage - this is my first dressage-bred horse and I’m still pinching myself!

CONGRATS!!!

Congratulations. She does have that little gleam in her eye.

I am terrible at names. I am sure you will get lots of suggestions.

What a precious filly!
(and I don’t advocate breeding but if I’d ever bred Callie, as everyone wanted me to, I’d want the foal to look like your little filly.)

She a beauty! :slight_smile:

BEST of luck with her, it sounds like she will be spectacular.

Raising a baby (horse!) is such a wonderfully fulfilling, amusing, exciting and rewarding experience (as you know); I bred my competition mare and her filly is now 4 1/2, and is the apple of my eye. Every day is a new adventure, and the relationship is remarkable; nothing like it :wink:

You will of course keep us posted with updates and PICS as she grows???

Cute. Congrats!!!

Serenity was the name of the movie they made for the Firefly TV series. It featured female characters named Zoe, River, and Inara.

I also think “Rennie” is a unique/nice name that comes right out of “Serenity.”

Siri. Then you can chatter to her instead of the duck and when your SO gives you grief, you can just say you were talking to Siri. :lol:

I’d name her Zoe, after the First Mate on the short lived TV show Firefly. The ship was named Serentiy. Plus she looks like a Zoe to me. She’s beautiful. Good luck with her.

Congrats, Hof Mendenhall breeds amazing horses, I can imagine how thrilling that is.

If it were me, Serenity = Rennie.

Plus I know a really nice and intelligent woman named Rennie, so that would make it a positive name in my mind.

Two of my favorite novels feature a young woman named Serenity, called Rennie. So I second the suggestions for Rennie.

She is darling, and I love that blanket!

She’s a beauty! I like the Firefly inspired ideas, but really what’s wrong with just calling her Serenity? I like it. She doesn’t need a 2nd call name…

That is one adorable baby! She is lovely! Congratulations on the little addition.

How about Serene? Means: calm, peaceful, untroubled, tranquil. When I first saw her photos, I thought How sweat, calm, confident, relaxed. That was before I really paid attention to what her name was.
