We try to stick to popular story books for our pony names . . .
Looks like we will be getting 2, maybe 3 new ponies soon.
We already have
Charlotte's Web (Charlotte)
Ordinary Miracle (Fern)
I think we have exhausted the Charlotte's web theme. . . no other cute names I like from that story. Anybody have any other suggestions from children's books?
We are thinking of Stella from (stellaluna), Beezus (Ramona and Beezus, etc.
"Stanley" from Flat Stanley
Zu Zu Bailey " IT"S A WONDERFUL LIFE !"
FERDINAND THE BULL
"Go on, Bill — this is no place for a pony."
Adventures in Wonderland - Alice
My small pony's name is Mary Poppins, but I still love it....
The Chocolate Factory - Charlie
Wizard of Ox
Bedknobs and Broomsticks! Not sure if it's a book, but I sure did LOVE that movie
Fancy Nancy. Love those books.
Most likely they will be mares. . .I know we are crazy!
If we do get a gelding. . . his name will probably be templeton to keep with the Charlotte's web theme!
I do love all the other suggestions though! and I love Fancy Nancy too, just don't know if I could call the pony Nancy as a barn name lol! I really like Alice too!
I was going to say "Stellaluna", but you've got that one...How about Huckleberry Finn?
In keeping with the Charlotte's Web theme — Templeton, as in Templeton the Rat. Great name for a naughty pony.
Sarah Plain and Tall
An Alice in Wonderland name -- Cheshire Cat, Queen of Hearts, Mad Hatter (Barn name Alice)
Harriet the Spy
Secret Garden (Barn name Mary or Lennox)
Harriet the Spy
the Judy Blume books like Superfudge or Sheila the Great or Blubber
Miss Muffet and Goldilocks if you want to add Mother Goose stories.
When opportunity knocks it's wearing overalls and looks like work.
The horse world. Two people. Three opinions.
We had a lovely Pippi Longstocking with two hind stockings. I love Amelia Bedelia and have not seen a pony with that name. ( Stellaluna too)
I just spent 10 minutes looking for Harriet the Spy, and I could have just scrolled down!
Wind in the Willows
Wrinkle in Time
Bunnicula (kidding...sort of)
Looove Amelia Bedelia!
"Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out." ~John Wooden
Phoenix Animal Rescue
"Oh Say Can You Say" (Seuss) That was my favorite book growing up! Could be either male or gelding.
YEars ago there was a darling pony named Nicholas Nickleby.....
Same barn had Great Expectations.
My daughter loves the book series (1st grade) about a cat that thinks he's a chiwawa. The books are named after the character:
My own pony was named Spit-spot, which is from Mary Poppins. She's rounding up the kids and says something along the lines of "Alright children, let's get this room cleaned up. Spit-spot!"
We called her Spitty. And it fit.
Life would be infinitely better if pinatas suddenly appeared throughout the day.
