    Talking Tell me your clever and punny Horse Names

    I know there have been posts in the past and I would love to be directed to them as well. I'm looking for some punny and cleaver play-on-words type of horse names that are either currently in use, or that you know of/have though of on your own for marketing purposes of horse products.

    Here are some that I know of:

    In use:
    Hoof Hearted
    Ice Melted
    Tommy Haflinger

    My own:
    Bitney Spurs

    Others I've heard more on the fun side:
    Eye Candy
    Beefcake
    Chunky Monkey

    What are some other fun names that you know of?

    I saw "Weebiscuit" a while ago for a small pony, and thought it was adorable.

    There's a pony farm near me that uses "bunny" in all the show names.

    Examples: Somebunny Famous, One for the Bunny, Cinnabunny, No Bunny Like Me, etc. It's so cute and they come up with some really clever ones!

    At the last horse show there was a horse named "A Harley". Took a while for us to figure that one out until we heard the announcement they were on course.

    I think my favorite was a rather unfortunate-looking horse aptly named "Spare Parts"

    I wanted to name my put-together-by-committee OTTB "Beer Goggles," but unfortunately he's not the type of horse with a sense of humor, and I just couldn't do it in the end.

    My favorite ever was a horse from back in my teen years. A woman showed him in the AO Jumpers and he "squeaked" over every fence (kind of a squeal-ish noise). His show name was Squeaky Clean.

    And I'm trying really hard not to name my Holsteiner colt, Charley, "Up Chuck."

    I have a saddlebred in my barn named "Talk Derby To Me."

    There's an opinionated mare at my barn whose show name is No Bucking Way. Cracks me up every time I hear the announcer. (:

    I think I know this horse! A jumper, right? Shows at Batavia? (I think, It may have been a different horse)

    I named my favorite homebred TB filly "Like A Rockstar." I imagine that will be fun to hear riding into a ring someday.

    we used to have a mare named "Under the Influence"....

    "so-and-so riding under the influence"

    & for clever, we have a retired jumper named "Hooked on Onyx"

    Best name I've heard & wished I thought of it first - "Plan B"
