or Phuck.. haven't decided yet.. :wink grin:

Seriously I am now the proud owner of a 3 year old OTTB..that I got from our own moonriver farm here on COTH.. Who, in case you wanted to know, is a wonderful lady who has great taste in OTTB and has several lovelies that need homes;) His barn name was Gaston. ( pronounced like the Beauty and the Beast character).. but his race name was " a Puck to remember" which I LOVE... and I plan on calling him Puck..

Anyhoo.. just thought since he had such a fun name ya'll would want to have some fun with me in thinking of " show names " for him.. appropriate or inappropriate I don't care.. it's just in fun..

I liked
Puck you
So Pucking Cute
Puck off

etc etc..

Oh and if you want to see his utter cuteness here (http://s170.photobucket.com/albums/u274/horse-loverz/?action=view&current=310437_161582550605149_131406396956098_272 170_243534327_n.jpg) he is..
so now.. have fun!! :winkgrin::winkgrin:

I'd use his race name. It's cute and suggestive without being completely rude.

Your guy is gorgeous and such a trier and in time is going to make you very happy. Well he already does that. So either keep the original which is suggestive or give him a real good one. ;)

He so deserves it! But you could try Pucking Uggs! LOL!

LOL.. Yeah that one would be good.. stupid uggs.. :wink grin: I like the race name I just thought it would be fun to play.. He'll be a good boy when he grows up.. but but riding with closed gates will be a stellar idea now :D

I suppose "The Puck Stops Here" would not be a good name for a hunter/jumper.

I like What The Puck.

I cannot contribute because I am biased but I love all these suggestions....his breeder can probably add to the list as Puck is her stallion and she has submitted many a name that the JC rejected....:winkgrin:
horse-loverz is just a total and complete joy to be around and I wish I could move her closer! Oh and she is a damn good rider too!!!!

If you want to go with another association--Puck, the character in A Midsummer Night's Dream--you could go by his other name, Robin Goodfellow or, as how he describes himself in the play, Merry Wanderer.

I was thinking of the Midsummer reference, too :-)

For puck's sake
Pucky Charm
Flying Puck
If he were a girl, Puck Be A Lady

Oh but I genuinely love Pucker Up!

I like his registered name and "Pucker Up"...although the latter makes me think of a mare/filly more than a gelding. My own submission: PUCK FINN I don't like the obvious ones, I think they're too rude, but I'm old fashioned, so take that fwiw. :winkgrin:

I like your suggestions the best. As soon as I saw the name "Puck," I thought of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

You know, he is a Cajun by birth, so maybe you should spell it Pucque......

Puck was my favorite horse from my barn as a kid. Very dependable, push button, and never stopped at a fence. So the name recalls great memories for me.

Like these as well. Or you could use Midsummer, or Night's Dream, or other title combinations.

He sure is handsome!

FWIW, I really like Robin Goodfellow or Merry Wanderer. Loved Puck in MSND.

Can you imagine the horse show announcers? Somehow Pucque would become "Poo cue."

Are posters serious in suggesting a use of Puck that takes the place of f*ck? Really? You'd really name your horse that?

Pucker Up is great.

I think it's in jest.

He's a gem! (of course he is, since he is related to Bluesy ;) ) I can't help but think of Puck from A Midsummer's Night Dream, as someone else mentioned.

So my name for him would be :

Midsummer's Dream.

What was his race name? I feel like I should know this.

Ps: Boo's race name is Bluesy and his show name is Mood Indigo. I love jazz :D

Thank you all.

I like What the Puck best.

And there's always:

• Puck a Duck
• Puck My Life
• Pucktard
• Bumble Puck
• Puck Your Couch
• Harden The Puck Up
• For Puck's Sake
• Go Puck Yourself
• Bum Puck Egypt
• Puck Off

Etc., etc. :D

I do have to say that as an announcer, seeing your name on my sheet, I'd be holding my breath and praying before you entered the ring... "Please don't let me puck this up!" :winkgrin:

"Now entering the ring is #572, the entry of horse-loverz for a first trip." :D Or "Now entering the ring is #572, *turn on walkie talkie to create static,* first trip."

That would be very helpful. ;)

It would definitely help me judge you from the in-gate. I don't mean the letter-R-behind-the-name kind of judging. I mean the "catty girl" kind. :yes: The kind where I say "What'd she have to go name that cute horse that, I can't even say it at this hour of the day without getting fired!"

Seriously, he is too darn cute!

ETA: Ooh! Or I could pretend it was some kind of foreign language and pronounce it with a different inflection every time! I think that's definitely the way to go.

LOL.. Thanks. I am really liking Pucker Up for his personality.. and the fact that when you scratch his muzzle he opens his mouth and rolls his tongue around because he enjoys it so much.. and he has a little white kiss on his nose. LOL..

but " for Pucks sake" and " puck puck goose" have me cracking up as well.. :winkgrin::D

Completely inappropriate and said in jest, but this thread made me think of it! Personally, I love the Pucker Up suggestion :)
