Three in a row

It's good to be me.  

For the third day in a row, I've been the lucky recipient of a model horse related package.
This lovely Kristina Lucas-Francis Sia resin was painted by the talented Caroline Boydston. 
I've long wanted a Boydston piece for my collection, so I couldn't be happier with the new arrival. 
She's a joyful little thing--all sassy and flirty with her funny ears and flipped up tail. 
She's also extremely petite.  This surprised me.  Because she is an older foal, I thought she'd be bigger in size, kind of like the Stone yearling.
She's much smaller than that, however.  In fact, she's smaller than most of the foals in my collection. 
I'm not complaining.  Good things come in small packages, and as far as I'm concerned, my new Sia is a very good thing.  

P.S.  Sia was painted in 2002 and I am at least her third owner.  I know one of her previous names, but I don't particularly like it.  Naming suggestions are welcome!

  1. Lucky! It's been too long since a horse has arrived at my house! I'll be thinking of a good name. Something that just sounds sassy...

    1. I would have been shocked if she hadn't arrived in one piece. I don't think I've ever had a resin come so well packed! Seriously, I wish I had photographed each layer of the packaging as I unwrapped her. It would have made for a perfect how to article!

  4. Very lovely! I have one Boydston piece and am working on adding another; yours is equally as gorgeous!

    I also like the Sia mold; I'll bet she'll be quite successful for you in the showring.

    As for a name, I would put the word "Flirt" in it if she was mine.

  5. May I suggest " Little Sassy Sia" or "Lil' Sassy Sia"
    I just thought since She's smaller than the other foals you own and that She just looks so sassy that the name might suit her.:)

  6. I really like the name Kryptonite for her, or something flirty and sassy hmmmmm...wonder what name you will chose? Oh maybe you could name her some kind of gem! amethyst would be nice too.

  7. Wow that's one nice model! (and this is coming from a customizer) I think pony ppl of all the interwebs are now jealous lol.

    For a name, how about Sangria? Sangria is a spanish beverage made of wine, fruit, sweetener, and brandy. I think it would fit her well with her festive personality. Just a suggestion... Thanks for your awesome blog by the way; I check everyday for new interesting posts. I appreciate how you provide reference photos for customizers and people who show, as sometimes it can be hard to find good pictures. Anyways, thanks!

  8. Oooh, that's a leading contender. I like short names and this one has that added word play appeal. S(angr)ia.

  9. Since we have very vastly different taste in names, I will refrain from suggestions :D

    But she is very lovely and I too am surprised she's a bit on the smallish size in scale. However, that won't matter and does not :) She's very lovely!

  10. So very pretty!!!

    I have 2 myself! Bay and dapple Grey!!

    It is my understanding that she is supposed to be a young mare or filly and actually is "classic" sized, not Trad size.

    Congratulations!

    1. I am a word nerd and the Sia in Sangria jumped out at me right away. Thanks for such a cleverly fitting suggestion. Sangria she is!
