My little bitty baby goes to her first in-hand this weekend...so its time to finalize that show name forever and ever amen. She's out of an Art-Deco bred stallion so I'd like to keep with the art-y theme.
But she made out with ZERO color. Do I go with "Minimalist" (the obvious joke) or "Mixed Media" (an art term which I'm not sure how many people are familiar with)?
Thought I'd check with the wonderful people of COTH who would immediately know if Minimalist was an Olympic-so-and-so from the 80's and it would be in bad taste for me to use that name, etc. Thanks in advance.
No consideration of "Monochrome"? Her stable name could be Mona. Not too feminine but Mancante Colore for missing colors. You could call her Memphis "Art Deco had a profound influence on many later artistic movements, such as Memphis and Pop art."
Diane, I LOVE it! I am a sucker for clever names! I have to admit when I read the thread awhile ago about the ET mixup and they named the supposed bay foal "Chestnot" I CRACKED up.
I REALLY enjoy Monochrome as well! That one hadn't occured to me. Mona is a DARLING barn name (thats the other benefit to calling her Minimalist is that she COULD have gone by Minnie) but unfortunately she came with the unceremonious name "Crosby" and it's stuck to her. Works out well, she's not lovely enough for a name like Mona A giant dopey tomboy.
Shoot, now I have to pick between three. This worked against me it seems
