screw the first letter nonsense. here are the stats

he's red red red chestnut
he's build like an old world baroque horse (but isn't)
he's French
he's gregarious, and a total gentleman with a sense of humor
his barn name is "Beefy"
he needs a formal show name because his registered name just doesn't fit.
I like names with double entendres, or that sound somewhat serious with a 5 second delay of laughter.

"Well Done" (double entendre LOL) was a top pick until i looked up how many other horses have it, and none of them are doing well :lol:

Any ideas?

Ou est le boeuf?

That's french for "where's the beef". You could spell it West Leboeuf, if you want to get it pronounced over the loudspeaker.

How about Glace de Viande (meat glaze)? Or the less pungent Demi Glace. Or if you really want to be silly, Monsieur Demi Glace.

If you're calling him Beefy, I like just plain la Boeuf - like the character in True Grit. Maybe de Boeuf

Beefeater (is that how they spell the kind of gin?)
Tartare (raw beef, also not sure if that's spelled right)

He sounds like a most interesting horse, which immediately led me to Dos Equis' "Most Interesting Man in the World" campaign. Here are my contributions:

Dos Equis
Dos Equus
Stay Thirsty
Fernando (a nod to his baroque appearance, and the first name of the actor who purportedly inspired the campain)
Ferdinand (the storybook bull who refused to fight)

Winner:
Monsieur Costaud (Beefy Gentleman)

made me laugh! and sounds fancy until translated :)

Wheres The Beef - a WEAK one, but only one that comes to mind at the moment.

Imagine being announced on deck...

Then again, I ride one that is named "Reality Intrudes" :)
I like quirky names myself...

Wecked Beef/Bouef


(should be obvious ;) buuuuuuuuut a play on Wicked & Beef on Weck (thanks to On The Road with the Sterns :D )

Downside is getting the announcer to say it like Wicked rather than Wrecked

Also:
Maitre Bouffe (Food master)
Monsieur Bouffe (translated as Mister Food but means more like the man to go to for food)

Poor horse! lol
Why not Steak Tartare (raw ground beef) , Place au Boeuf (Make Way for the ox/beef), Viande Rouge (raw meat) while you're at it?!!

With a lot of those "French" names you run the risk of the announcer butchering them (pun intended).

What's his actual reg. name?

That sounds like Gerard Depardieu to me.

He's big and beefy (fat), has reddish hair, very gregarious and sexy and romantic.

OP thanks for starting this naming thread - it is hilarious especially when most of the naming threads are people who want to have much more serious names for their horses. I have fallen generally in the latter camp, though I did buy and still have a lovely TB schoolmaster, registered name Cowboy. He got me all the way to PSG and it always made me smile when his name was announced- particularly at the upper levels.

Since you like double entendre so much, why not.... Double Entendre?

Sounds like a cool fellow.

He's too cool of a horse to have a stuffy name. I'm really liking most of these suggestions. It's making the decision harder, but I love having choices.

His registered name starts with a J if that's inspiration for anyone.

He got the name Beefy because he's stocky and all muscle; a "juice head, gorilla" as Snooki would say. When he's begging for cookies he raises his neck high like a saddlebred and puffs out his chest.

Based on that, and his registered name starting with a J, "Johnny Bravo" comes to mind -- the titular character in the late 90's cartoon by the same name. Would be especially fitting if he thinks he's all that and a bag of chips....

They do wear an awful lot of red (and it's my fav gin) ; )

I'm still undecided
Beefeater We do have a history of gin martinis, my mentor and I, so that's fitting.
Juste leBoeuff has a small homage to his birth name and his barn name...
So I think it's down to those too
Or
Martinis Conqueso... Long story behind that one
