View Full Version : Help! Another naming thread

Mar. 30, 2012, 07:19 PM
Hi all! So I lose all creativity when it comes to naming my own horses so I thought I would ask for some help!

Mare is currently named Julep (barn name) and Mint Julep as a show name.
She was born on Derby day, hence the julep theme from her previous owner.

Her sire is Alla' Czar. Don't know dam's name off the top of my head.

She is a light bay with a short white sock front and back R.

Thanks for any suggestions!

What exactly are you asking for? A show name? a barn name? something that goes with the sire name?

Personally, I like her current name. You can call her Jup for short. I think its totally cute!

Looking for a show name. In the past she's been called Mint Julep but it doesn't really fit her. Her barn name is Julep, which we really like but it doesn't seem enough for a show name, even though that's what she's been showing under for the past year.

People are big on the hats at the Kentucky Derby, so what about naming her something like Hats Off or I Tip My Hat?

Also, the Derby is frequently referred to as "The Run for the Roses," (because a lush blanket of 554 red roses is awarded to winner), so how about working that into her name? Barn name could be Rose or Rosie and show name could be Raindrops on Roses, Rosebud, Desert Rose, etc.
