I've been searching for the right nickname for our new girl. All of our other Arabs have gone by nicknames rather than more formal titles. Besides, Bahjah is such a heavy, masculine sounding name for such a tiny little sprite. So I started calling her Gemini, which is her birth sign - and she's almost like our old Breezy's twin. That morphed into Gem and Gemi which somehow became Gemilyn.
Even though she and Breezy share so much in looks, personality and broodmare background, they don't have any common ancestry. She doesn't share any heritage with Pearl either. When I compared her lineage to Zim's, however, they share 3 common great and great great grandparents. I wouldn't have guessed it, but I figure that's a sign of a good match. :)
She's fitting in really well, and Zim seems content again. And she's starting to smooth over those ribs a bit thanks to the grassy meadow.
