View Full Version : Need a "Show" name for my new Thoroughbred Event horse

Oct. 17, 2009, 11:17 AM
Ok - I need some good ideas, so put your thinking caps on!!!
I purchased an 8 yo Thoroughbred gelding a couple months ago. He is registered as "Arab Angel" with the Jockey Club and his barn name is "Cooper".
The problem is... I just don't like the name "Arab Angel", even though he is an angel, he is not an Arab... and well, lets face it...he is not always an angel.
I like the name "Cooper" but want something a little stronger, masculine and showy.
Cooper is a 16.1h blood bay, dark bay legs and tipped ears and a single white star on his forehead. He is really a gentle giant!!!
Any suggestions, ideas or thoughts are GREATLY appreciated!!!

uh, is it too obvious to suggest your name, "Flew the Coop" ?

Gary Cooper? A strong masculine name from Hollywood's past

Hangin' with Mr. Cooper

I also like "Flew the Coop" or

Coop de Ville (any spelling)

Divisadero.... thought I'd throw that out there as I'm reading it right now and one of the main characters is named Coop.

I also immediately thought Flew The Coop, without noticing your name haha.
Otherwise, what about Anderson? As in, Anderson Cooper.

Oct. 17, 2009, 05:58 PM
wow, why did I not think of the obvious??? Too funny. I love the suggestions... please keep them coming!!!

Another vote for "Flew the Coop" -- love it!

I'm also a big fan of cheesy pun names: "Party Cooper" came to mind, lol.

Cooperstown... what could be more masculine than the baseball hall of fame? How do I even know it's there? Haha...

No name suggestions, but is your guy by Awad? I know a colt by Awad, and he has such a fantastic disposition :yes:

Oct. 18, 2009, 08:36 PM
Mini Cooper?
Turbo Coupe?

I'm not really a car person but that is what came to mind.

More importantly, congratulations on getting your new pony!!

Another vote for Super Cooper. That's really cute.

If he's really a star, then call him Coopernicus.

I've been saving it, but:

Yo Gabba Gabba

So your done now. Nobodies beating that name. :D

There was a famous horse called Super Trooper, too close to Super Cooper?

I visualize him flying over massive coops with a name like Flew the Coop.

Ok so this has nothing to do with cooper but I always wanted to name a horse "Amazingly Well" so when you're announced at a show its, "Now entering the ring, Jane Smith riding Amazingly Well."

Super Cooper is pretty darn cute too.

I really do like Super Cooper, but just a little devil's advocate here. I named a horse Bodoni. It's the name of a typeface. I almost named him Bodoni Bold, but having a friend or two that are announcers (who I am on joking terms with) I could just here the announcer following a refusal, "Bodoni Bold wasn't very was he!" Super Cooper has a bit of the same problem, but then if your announcer pals are kinder than mine it won't be a problem!

Also: Little Deuce Coupe
I love the lyrics of a guy bragging about his hot car as a comparison for a great little horse!

How about his registered name. Helps to track his breeding when he is a superstar.

If you like Super Cooper you may also like

Super Duper Cooper :).

Or Super Duper Trooper Cooper :lol:. But my favorite is Amazingly Well--that would have a nice ring to it when announced on the loud speaker.
