View Full Version : Little horse needs a show name

I recently got a new little horse (actually found him in the give a ways section on COTH). He's about 14.3 and is the biggest little horse you'll ever meet. He came with the name Harpo. At first I didnt like it, but its grown on me. He's silly like Harpo Marx so it works towards his comical side. And everyone at the barn has too much fun calling him Oprah, haha. Either way, we have NO show name for this little bugger. I'd like something short (im a fan of one to two word show names) that plays off of his silly, overgrown pony personality. Any ideas? Once I am at home I will post a picture.

Little Big Man.

I like it :) I also love the quote in your sig. I've found the opportunity to use it in conversation a few times since reading it. It's perfect!

It's taken, though, many times over-- be prepared to be Little Big Man Roman Numeral Whatever if you register him with USEA-- there was also a really successful jumper named Little Big Man not very long ago.

ETA: I like both Duck Soup and Animal Crackers-- you could also do

Ahhh very good point about LBM XCVIII.. I dont want all those crazy numbers.

With inspiration to look at Harpo Marx films... I may have decided on Humor Risk. Any thoughts on that?

Weeman just for kicks, like the guy off of Jacka#$ lol

or keeping with the Marx theme:
Monkey Doodle Doo
if he's chestnut- O Sole Mio (my sun)
Chicolini
Faker Englund (Harpo's character)
Flywheel
Hot Mikado
Pinafore

What are his bloodlines??

He's a hafflinger/morgan cross. Apparently has some fancy pants hafflinger stallion whose name escapes me currently. He's got a great mind and nothing seems to phase him. If all we ever are is professional beginner novice eventers, i'll be happy.

I really like O Sole Mio. He is chestnut (red dun actually but chestnut by all other accounts). I had to put my heart horse down in September (my user name is his name sake) due to a sudden injury and it was raining horribly the entire week. The first day we had sun I was outside on my work break and there was the most incredible sunset with a horse head showing clear as day in the middle of it. Again, pictures will be posted when I get home. O Sole Mio would be a very nice nod to this, still playing with the Harpo Marx part of it!

Thanks everyone for your input. I think O Sole Mio will be the winner :)

Awww that's so cool! He's super cute! O Sole Mio-song from Monkey Business and Harpo plays the harp in it.
He looks like he's a lot of fun!

I asked Harpo this morning if he liked the name and he licked my face, I'll take that as a yes.

Heres one last photo. Forgot I had this one on my work computer. His butt is turned away from the camera a bit, its not really that small.

Awww... I think that's perfect! And wow... what a picture!! I truly believe they never leave us.. and that's one example of how they remind us they're still with us. I'm sorry about your heart horse.

And good luck and have fun with Harpo!!! He is adorable!

Thanks FA! I know DA will never leave me. He's the best guardian angel a girl could have.

Harpo is such a blast, he continues just to be the biggest love bug!

Hot Mikado

Well damn, I may have to get another horse just to name it Hot Mikado.
