Name Suggestions Please
Curious is going to go back to the rescue when she is healed up - sadly she is just more than I can handle. Plus I've learned that my limited mobility means even getting up on a 14.2 horse is very difficult at best.
So my daughter and I will be getting a mother-daughter pair of modern Tarpan ponies*. These two have had some training but are pretty rusty, however their temperaments are calm and they seem to have a natural affinity for children. And I have found a trainer that will come work with us at a very reasonable rate, to make sure we stay on track.
Since they were both used primarily as brood mares they don't really have names. (They were micro-chipped for ID) They look very much alike and are both about 12.3h. I would love to have some name suggestions that will reflect their Spanish mustang heritage.
There have been three attempts to recreate the extinct Tarpan. The Heck Horse, and the Konik Horses were developed in eastern Europe and the Stoebel's Horse here in the United States from Spanish Mustang lines.

Isabella - Spanish queen who financed Columbus (Bella for short to distinguish her from Izzy)

Just realized you already have a Sophie in the house. How about Letizia - the Crown Prince's wife or Elena or Cristina - the Crown prince's two sisters. Of course you could always call one of them "Juana la Loca" and say you named it after me :) (Juana la Loca was Isabella's daughter)
