I know, I know. A naming thread. But I'm bad at thinking up cute names and tend to pick the first thing that pops into my head. Which is why my last horse ended up with a movie name, First Knight.

My boy is a 16hh 5 year old mustang gelding who's learning how to be a hunter. His barn name is Keno. He's a bright bay with no white. Keno's not an elegant mover but he's cute/safe over fences and he's got a good mind. I'm hoping for a name that's light and fun. The best I can come up with is Casino Royale which just doesn't seem to fit him. (again with the movie names, see how bad I am at this)

Here's a pic of him.

He's cute. :) Since Keno is also a game played at casinos, you could call him Gamblin' Man, Casino, Leaving Las Vegas, Las Vegas, Poker Face....I think some kind of gambling/casino name would be cute and light. Have fun with him!

He's very cute. Personally, I would stick with Keno - it's a good name. I also like "Casino Whirl". I wanted to use it, but it didn't fit any of the horses I had.

Keno is cute.
You could also look at names of Vegas (or other place) casinos.
For example, there is a place in Colorado called "Cripple Creek" that has a bunch of small casinos- one of them might have a cute name appropriate for a mustang :)

Edit:

I think you should name him Fremont Street, because its awesome :)

Also like Keno and Fremont Street. How about Roulette?

He's a cutie. :) How about Jet Boy? It's a New York Dolls song. I always wanted to use it as a show name, but I've never had a horse or pony that it would fit. We didn't want to encourage Mr. Speed-demon-pony-hunter. :lol:

long time lurker...first post...had to chime in on this one
may be one of the few who enjoy naming threads...

always thought if I had a mustang (secretly always wanted one) I would name him/her:

Wild at Heart

since it is not looking like a mustang is in my future...
thought I would share::)

My friend wanted to name her horse Mandalay Bay, which is a hotel/casino in Vegas but it didn't fit her horse. I think that would be adorable for you guy. He is very cute.

I did name one Mandalay Bay. There was also a Bellagio in the barn and a possible "Tao" so we had a theme going.

I would stick with KENO — short and sweet. Ever notice that some of the greatest racehorses have one-word names? (e.g. Ruffian, Secretariat, Seabiscuit)

I really like Keno, it's simple yet fun. Best of all, it's not cheesy. :)

Ours is currently Bellagio! "Belle" for short.

I don't have any new ideas but I LOVE Poker face, which mybeau posted, and What Happens in Vegas, by Kestrel. I also like just Keno, but personally I love a cute showname:)
