    Well...my Paint's registered name is 'Spicy Ice', so Cutters Rebel Pride isn't so bad! Live with him for a little and test names out on him before you decide. RC isn't too bad..

    Maurice....some people call everybody Maurice

    (It's a joke. Read a really funny piece about 'The Joker' and the 'pompatuse of love')

    He's a cutie....RC ain't bad of a name, nor Snickers. He looks like a Snickers (and barn names are what pops into your head - or should be...)

    Damn you, Alagirl, for getting that song stuck in my head.

    Personally I love Snickers. But given the "good ol' boy" sound of his registered name, maybe "Redneck" fits?
    Also the top of his blaze looks like a wrench, so perhaps something with a Mechanic theme. Mr. Goodwrench? (this used to be a brand name of an auto repair shop). The Handyman?

    Once knew a TB named reg. name "Fish Lips" so Rebel Pride ain't so bad.

    Everytime I hear the country song "Red Dirt Road" I think that would be a good name for a chestnut/sorrel QH.

    I agree with you that the connotations of his registered name are rather horrid. The current US National Champion Arabian stallion is an import from Poland named -seriously- *Pogrom, so there's that.

    I detest my geldings registered name, Sir Quincey's Iceman, so honestly, I do not think Cutter's Rebel Pride is so bad. Just don't deck yourself out with Confederate flag gear and most people won't read too much into it or give it a second thought. The majority of us don't give our horses their registered names so most people understand.

    How 'bout "Flag"? Plays off the name without offensive connotations....

    QH names are meant to indicate heritage. The instant I read that name, I thought of Cutter Bill, who is in the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame. I looked him up on allbreedpedigree, and sure enough, your horse traces to Cutter Bill.

    Your horse looks a little bit like a Bill. If you wanted to call him that, I'm sure the great Cutter Bill wouldn't mind sharing his name.

    Here's a link to a little more info about Cutter Bill:

    Hmmm, I actually like his registered name! I'd suggest "Rebel" but you know what happens when you name horses things like Bucky, Diablo, etc.

    I like Rebel, too....if he's a ham, then it fits. If he's a good boy, well then it's just funny.

    I've always wanted to name a big red horse Clifford, if he had the right personality. Has nothing to do with Cutter's Rebel Pride, but you did say puppydog, didn't you?

    I kinda like his original name or some variation thereof. Once knew a horse, original name Snake Eyes. Now that was a horrible name! (Renamed Snowy.)

    I know a registered QH named Virtual Chicken so Cutters Rebel Pride should make you feel better. I like his name if my vote counts

    Well, if you use his initials in the proper order, it's CRP, or maybe CR#P?
