    Default Just bought my first non-TB, now need a name...

    After having a couple of hundred TBs in the past 3 years, I have just bought (sight unseen...!) my first non TB.

    Ive scrolled through the fav name lists, and so far the one name that stood out is "Hush" ...does anyone else have any single word name suggestions?

    She is black, 2 hind stockings, and will do hunters and jumpers if she is good enough ;-)

    My trainer sold a mare several years ago who is now shown under the name, Witchcraft.

    Thought it was a cute name for a jumper.

    Cats can jump--and catwoman had a black suit.

    Might already be in use, but I think "Candlelit" is a lovely one word name.

    THanks all! I am in NZ, and down here we cant duplicate names, so if someone else's horse already has the name I want...I cant use it ;-( I think witchcraft is already taken, as is catwoman, and I think candlelit, though it might be candlelight thats used!

    I'll put her pic in my profile..

    I like Hush... I owned a mare whose show name was Hush Hush (which is slang for something that is done in secret.)

    There is a rather famous horse out there with the name of "Hush" already.

    How about "Bi Winning"...2 white socks and all.

    Sorry, sorry... could not resist.

    I really like Black Ice. As in "watch out, that's Black Ice, there!" (what you would say on the road if you suddenly saw black ice...)

    What breed is she?
    Airborne? Oh. Yes, he can take a joke. Once. After that, the joke's on you.

    Lol thanks guys!

    LOVE Nightmare..but for resale purposes...hmm..might be difficult!

    Im not worried how famous the name Hush is in the US, 'cause there is no horse down here with that name and I'd never heard of it until reading these threads!

    Dont really want to go with any of the occult names... and definitely prefer just one word.

    Yes, Im hopeless!

    But I still love Hush... ;-)

    Re her breeding, she is a real mixture...lets just say she is a NZ Warmblood lol. Pic is in my profile lol
