    I thought you might enjoy! They don't even have the "Doc" "Bar" "Sonny" "Dee" "Ima" "Sheza" "Zippo" etc names. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif My QH mare has a terrible name-- Light My Redford. It sounds like a bad pickup line to me. Can't you just picture some sleezy drunk guy at some smoky bar saying it?

    Can you think of any other "interesting" names?

    I've owned (or still own) Dee Duce Is High, Trace (as in the Spanish 3 only spelled wrong http://chronicleforums.com/images/custom_smilies/no.gif) Times A Lady, Miss Leggy Lady, Cant I Lope Cody (sounds like cantalope Cody...should've named a baby Watermelon Crawl http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/lol.gif) and Hot Jet Lady. All were named by others, thank goodness. QH names drive me nuts. I'm a horrible namer myself, though, and now I ask for help. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif

    Our old appx.QH that we owned (sold him to our trainer so he didn't have to leave us) is registered as "Evil Possiblity". His sire was "Mr. Go Devil" and his dam was "Just Possibly".
    This horse is anything but evil, he is like a big puppy dog that takes the best care of whoever is on his back. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif Spoiled rotten by everyone too. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/winkgrin.gif

    I guess I'm just too mentally challenged to come up with names like that. I do like the hymns though http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    Once new an appendix: Mutley. He looked like one too. Stupid as a rock, so I guess it fit. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_cool.gif

    Two of my horses have been (and I didn't name either!) Miss Easy Bar Lady and Windchester Kaboom. Loved the horses, HATE the names.

    Predjudice is a poor substitute for thought.

    My jumper's name is Disco Sunday Deacon. Ugh.

    Even worse, my pony's name was My Precious Zipper. She got some funny looks!

    Just A Lil Hancock

    I appreciate the history of the name, but it sounds smutty all the same.

    In high school, a friend had a gelding named Our Old Man Dun It -- she was in 4H and never wanted to win because it would mean that the announcer would have to say her horse's name!! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...s/icon_eek.gif

    My mother-in-law shows Hillbilly Classic (registered name and show name) in dressage. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif He is the best horse I have ever had the pleasure of riding. I love QH's and their funny names! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/lol.gif

    I went to an auction with some friends a couple of years ago and when they announced a horse named Big Brown Beaver we started giggling like a bunch of silly teenagers http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif. Got a few sideways glances too http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif

    My QHs names aren't too bad. Wonder's registered name is "Champ's Charm"--her sire was Jose's Champ, Jr. Ginger's registered name is "Ms. Impressive Ginger".
