CUTENESS ALERT: endangered foal arrives at Denver Zoo

Dear Readers,
If you're in Denver, Colorado this summer, you'll have the chance to see one of the cutest -- and most endangered -- foals, ever.

Sube is the first Przewalski's Horse to be born at the Denver Zoo in 20 Years .

If you're like me, you look at the name of her breed and decide it's too much of a tongue-twister to pronounce.
You might just call her a Mongolian Horse. That's accurate, too, but here's a key to pronunciation:

sheh-VAL-skeez .

The little filly was born to mom Yisun, on the morning of May 31.

Do you speak Mongolian? Hope so, since I can't find sensible translations of the names. Sube or Yisun. Perhaps they're just proper names.

Want to enjoy a Sube film? Click here: foal quietly exploring her yard under the watchful eye of her mother. Sube is a little unsteady on her feet, and when she's afraid she'll fall, she's all about cuddling closer to her mother!
