    Default Another show name help thread. (I never thought I'd need to ask!)

    I usually can come up with great show names, but I'm really stuck on this mare.

    Her first outing is going to be KY Classique and I want her to have a fitting name. Her barn name is Brandy, she's a perchie/QH cross and she is like a big dog. Off the farm she just follows me like a puppy, never trying to meet new people or eat or drag me around- just nose in my pocket and happy to be there. On the farm shes a little more secure and has a "I can take on the world!" disposition.

    She is BOLD on XC, never even batted an EYE at anything- ditch, banks, water- not a problem. She'll jump anything on stadium too- if we can make the turn to get there! Dressage is lovely... when she wants it to be!

    I do like to use musical references for my show names, but I'm open to anything that works for her. Here's some pics, of course:

    And a face shot. She usually has a very soft eye, but she looks minorly concerned in this photo.

    She has a big DOT on her nose, if you can't quite see it.

    Any ideas? Like I said, I'm at a total loss!

    Sorry if these are a little nerdy.

    You could do something with the Brandenburg Concertos, either Brandenburg on its own or something about the concertos themselves. For example, they all started with an Allegro movement, so maybe Brandenburg Allegra for a mare?

    Alternately, you could pick some piece of terminology related to the liquor named brandy. For example, XO is one of the abbreviations added to brandy of very fine quality, so Brandy XO might be a cute show name that also alludes gently to the "kiss" on her nose.

    How about, "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)"? Maybe it's too long.

    Alright, subK, you won on the name competition since my entry had to be filled out tonight. She's going to be "SPF's Big Idea" and our little paint pony just got dubbed "SPF's Little Muse."

    I was thinking along the same lines -- Show name "You're a Fine Girl" and barn name Brandy.

    The joy of hanging out with me at dressage shows surrounded by DQ's in their polos and top hats while munching on Doritos and discussing Wofford's review of Rolex.

    Is there a better prize?!
