    Default Best dun puns?

    Need to name a dun pony, obviously.

    A bunch of dun puns are already registered, but not as many as I expected.

    Ideas, or links to databases where one can search by horse name (yes, I'm open to plagarising a cool name if it's not in use here)?

    Edited to add - best one I have found so far as a horse in the UK called "Another Dun Pun" .

    On the list so far (comments welcome):
    - Dun Dun Dun
    - Nicely Dun

    I knew a wonderful dun hony called Dunno. It was great. Someone would ask who his rider was hunting today - she'd answer "Dunno". Got some really odd looks because we were all standing round waiting for the master to say his bit before we mounted up.

    It inspired me to name a hony "Guess". That really suited him, but it bugged admin people at competitions when they were recording who I was riding or who had placings.

    Do you want a cutesy name, or something more elegant? Since you're in NZ, how about Dunedin? Or the original Scots Gaelic version: Dùn Èideann.
    Also:
    Duncastle Gold
    Dunbarton
    Dunsany Goldwing

    There used to be a dun eventer in the UK called "The Dun Thing" which was a play on the British expression "The Done Thing" as, in, the correct thing to do. Horse was owned by a woman who married Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber. None of which is helpful to you, but I could not resist posting
    I love cooking with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    Or if you're in the mood to cite Australia: Crocodile Dundee
