Calypso Picture


Consignor: Triple Birch Farm
Registered Name: Calypso
Barn Name: Callie
Gender: Mare (Pregnant by Bodemeister)
Height: 16.1 hh
Phenotype: Rose Gray
Genotype: Ee/AA/Gg
Intelligence: 91
Temperament: Although occasionally moody this mare is all in all an easy, pleasant animal to be around. In her racing days she was known to be a steadfast, hardworking beast although prone to temper tantrums when things didn't go her way. This was especially notable after she lost a race, a fact that made her a highly competitive, eager-to-win animal. Since she's retired that aspect of her personality has tempered out considerably, although it has led her to be the 'boss' mare in all herd situations.

Calypso(El Prado x Ophidian by Ogygian) x Bodemeister = Vaalbara(AKA Valerie), filly, graying bay
Vaalbara is the Earth's theorized first supercontinent. Ogygia is associated with the Ogygian deluge and with the mythological figure Ogyges, in the sense that the word Ogygian means "primeval", "primal", and "at earliest dawn", which would suggest that Homer's Ogygia was a primeval island. Primeval island, first supercontinent, yeah. Plus it sounds kickass as a bonus.
