    Default First Event -- I guess we need a show name!

    Moo and I had a successful day at yesterday's "UnDerby" and a great lesson this week, so now we're planning on making our eventing debut one week earlier, and at pre-entry the original plan was starter one week later, but things have been going so well, the weather is predicted to be dry, this event only goes down to PE, and we can always fix things at starter the following week if we don't get rained out.

    Do I just show him as "Moo"? I don't want some elegant or pretentious type name -- it does not suit either of our personalities. His previous rider did one jumper show as "over the moon".

    Moo is a 15.2h 11yo PMU bay tobiano gelding, and I have no aspirations of anything but participating at lower levels.

    And OMG my first event ever is a week away!!

    Eat More Chicken is clever, but I'm not sure everyone will 'get' it.

    How about

    I like "Eat More Chicken"...Once people knew his barn name theyd get it

    And Moove Along and Super Moo are cute too! I actually enter my running races as "Super Katie"

    Eat More Chicken is very clever, with a nice 'pop culture' vibe.

    I think it's "correctly" spelled EAT MOR CHIKIN.

    I wouldn't use the "eat more chikn" reference because its tied to chikfila. That kind of discrimination doesn't sit well with Canadians! That's my only hesitation about the name...

    Holstien (as in the spotted cow breed...I suppose everyone would probably get confused with the horse breed). Ayrshires also have similar markings but maybe that's getting to esoteric.

    Grade A Prime (or is it too soon after the EU horsemeat scandal?)
    Well Done

    But really, other than the fact I strongly disagree with the Chik fil a management, Eat Mor Chikin is really funny

    Thanks everyone! Other suggestions given by friends were "How Now Brown Cow" and 'Got Milk". I liked both of those, but the BF (who has been very supportive of the horse) preferred Grade A Prime, so I let him have his way!

    Now to just survive the event -- we haul out tomorrow and I'm SO excited!

    Over the Moon is along the lines of what I was thinking and probably more elegant (mine thoughts had both "cow" and "moon" in them).

    Haha Grade A Prime, I love it. I was kind of thinking Moove It Or Lose It. Lots of fun names in this thread. Good luck at your event!

    Everyone -- thanks for the feedback! We completed our first event it POURED day 1, and dressage warmup was great but it was like a switch flipped in the ring and we had a positively awful ride. However, stadium was a good confidence builder though we trotted most of it and had 7 time penalties.

    The weather cleared for Sunday, and xc went great! Moo was eager and seemed to really like the fences and I only felt the slightest hesitation once or twice, but a little leg and he was all "ok!". He felt like he wanted to go more, but given that this course was mostly trails and it was our first time, I trotted most of it for a whopping 85.2 time penalties

    We were the last place entry that was not E, but it was a great confidence booster! We finished with *drumroll* 162.7! i keep joking that the person ahead of us had 154 and change and that it was a tight race.

    We're headed back to the same venue tomorrow to school, and if the course is still set, I'll redo it at the end of our lesson and canter it.

    And yes fanfayre, we are headed to MREC! We'll be stabling and arriving Friday!

    dmj -- you'll have to let us know how it goes! I have the good fortune of getting to go to another event this weekend, where we're going to do a bit more cantering. I also got to ride at the park today and introduce a ditch (yay!) and canter a handful of jumps after our hack.

    This eventing thing is ADDICTIVE!
