    Default New horse needs a barn name :)

    My sister bought a really sweet 6 year old Swedish Warmblood gelding and needs help coming up with a barn name! His registered name is Electric. He is by Elito (Electro), out of a mare by Good Future (Good Luck). He is bay with a star, stripe and snip. He's really green, his dressage trainer says she can"see his brain smoking" when he's trying to figure out what she wants.

    His old owner called him "Eli" but my sister doesn't like that. She has been calling him Buddy in the meantime.

    Help?

    I'll try to post a picture.

    I just got a new one too, and have decided to stick with his given name. I like Buddy, simple and cute

    Sven. DH is of Swedish descent and that was what we called DS in utero. It is a good Swedish name : )

    2nd vote for Sparky. (though I rather like Eli).
    How about Cap or Captain (as in Captain Electric)?

    I love Wattson. My nephew is named Watson and we have called him "Watt-Man" as a nickname for most of his life.

    I also like wattson as well. Buzz, sparky, Zapp, volt,..
    what about something along Benjamin Franklin lines- like Ben? Or Thomas Edison. Edison is pretty adorable for a barn name I think.

    I like Sparks, maybe that's what he throws off when his brain is smoking!
