    Default I have a special new Welsh colt, and need some name help!

    He is a Section B Welsh, palomino with LOTS of chrome (actually, a litttttle more than we were expecting!!), but I'm SO thrilled with him.

    He needs a very special name. At this time I consider him a stallion prospect.

    His sire is *Wedderlie Mardi Gras, his dam is *Holyoake Fantasia. I don't think I am interested in a "Mardi Gras" themed name, but that is pretty much the only limitation. He will be named with our "Clanfair" prefix.

    He is a very special looking guy! I have been following his photos on Facebook. What about just naming him Mardi Gras?

    With that face, "Night on Bald Mountain" might be more appropriate! (Though I don't actually like it as a name.)

    Yes I thought that, lol.

    Dance of the hours could be appropriate though, as I know I spend hours stood watching my own little time wasters

    I did not mean for this to be Mardi Gras themed, but he looks like he has so much personality-

    how about

    Clanfair Life of the Party?

    Clanfair Cinematique (french for kinematics- Kinematics is the branch of classical mechanics that describes the motion of points, bodies (objects) and systems of bodies (groups of objects) without consideration of the causes of motion.[1][2][3] The term is the English version of A.M. Ampère's cinématique,[4] which he constructed from the Greek κίνημα, kinema (movement, motion), derived from κινεῖν, kinein (to move). Kinematics is used in astrophysics to describe the motion of celestial bodies and systems, and in mechanical engineering, robotics and biomechanics[8] to describe the motion of systems composed of joined parts (multi-link systems) such as an engine, a robotic arm or the skeleton of the human body.)

    I think the "movement of celestial bodies" works well for this colt. =)

    With that mask, I'd be calling him Clanfair Masquerade!
