I recently imported a thoroughbred from Europe. She's 4 years old, 16h, and is a dark bay, almost black. I need a name for her, and a show name. Maybe catchy, but elegant? Clever? I dont know, impress me!(:
This is a litte off topic, but I'm curious as to why one would import a green thoroughbred. I'm not being snarky I am just honestly ignorant. I understand there are wild selections of WBs that people go to look at overseas or a TB with proven performance, but what is the advantage to importing a young TB from Europe versus buying an American one? Are they bred specifically to be sport horses?
Again, I'm asking out of ignorance and curiosity and not impudence.
I believe TBs from Europe, at least TBs bred for racing, are more sound. American TB racing has been breeding a lot more for speed than for soundness recently, and I think they use less drugs. I know German mares raced on drugs aren't permitted to be used for breeding. As for sporthorse TBs, I have no idea.
Here are my names, but you should post a pic!
Dark Chocolate Candy
Oscuro (means dark in spanish)
Talienta (a spin on talent/talented)
Of the heart-aching, hard-working, hope-having, horse-loving and horse-less variety. We are a sad species indeed.
How amazing! to import a horse from abroad. Wow, I am sooo jealous.
Emmm, now let me see names. Well why dont you go ahead and tell me a bit about him like where he comes from? his sires name, maybe his temperament and color? what are you competing in jumping? dressage?

According to the OP, the horse is a dark bay mare and seeing as this is the H/J forum, it'll likely be jumping.
Yes, same girl. I think she has a third username as well

If this is the case, why is she being allowed to continue with not two, but THREE usernames????
At this point the OP's posts are screaming "horse crazy teenage girl who does not actually have a horse, but concocts an online fantasy." Harmless, I suppose, in light of some of the other fakers who've visited before, but still.
