    Default Anyone want to help with picking a name?

    My sister just got a new yearling AQHA filly last night and is trying to find a barn name for her. Just something short and not complicated. She is almost a buttermilk buckskin in color and it would be neat to have a name that reflected her color. If not her reg name is Bar K Mercedes. Sorry not the best photo but it was the one used on her sale ad and she hasn't got new ones yet: http://www.cindyswarmbloods.com/images/newfilly.jpg
    So any good ideas?

    We have thought of quite a few but I don't think she has found that perfect one yet.
    Ones we have come up with that I can remember are:

    Mocha (like it but she had a previous horse named that that was put down at just 3yrs old so not sure she wants to go there)
    Soda (as in Soda Cracker ;-)
    Taffy
    Honey
    Frosty
    Misty
    there were others but can't think of them right off. Anyways, would love any ideas! Thanks!

    Dale - for Dale Evans, who used to ride Buttermilk, a buckskin! Then you should get a palomino and name it Roy!

    I don't know how familiar either of you are with QH bloodlines. Or the problems associated with some of them. One of those problems is HERDA/HC, a recessive genetic connective tissue disorder....horses that have one gene for this show no apparent symptoms but can pass it along when bred in a 50/50 chance. Smart Little Lena is a known carrier and she's pretty closely descended from him. If she and her parents have not been tested she probably should be. The source point stallion for this mutation appears to be Poco Bueno...and he's behind a huge number of the cutting horses (one estimate seen recently was 58% of the top 100 cutting stallions currently standing are carriers). Afflicted horses (ones with a gene from each parent so homozygous for this) will have a variety of problems ranging from what appears to be a chronic skin infection (sometimes thought to be fungal) to skin that bubbles, blisters, shears, tears and heals very poorly with lots of scar tissue.....lighter colored horses seem to have worse symptoms and to react more to sunlight exposure. You can see her extended pedigree on allbreedpedigree.com if you don't have a copy of it. May very well not be a carrier or an afflicted (these are frequently discovered as foals now that we know what to look for) and I don't want to cause worry but it is devastating to discover this in a horse for which you have great dreams and plans.

    Thanks for the info coloredcowhorse. Yes, my sister is very familiar with HERDA (though she has never had a case of it) she was line breeding Poco Bueno horses for a while prior to it coming out in the open and so learned a lot. She did have all of her linebred mares tested though and I imagine will probably have her tested as well. She is mainly into reining but does some cutting and cattle penning as well so she will probably have a performance career.
