    $100 Name That Foal Contest

    It's that time of year again! Pinehurst is holding its annual

    Name That Foal contest!

    The selected show name will be announced after the foal is born, and the winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to Pinehurst Saddlery!


    To enter the contest, fill out the entry form on the "Current Breeding" page of the Pinehurst Stables website with your suggested show names for the upcoming foal.

    ONLY entries made using the Official Entry Form on the Pinehurst site will be counted.

    The website will be updated regularly reflecting the names submitted. Repeat names will not be counted.

    Be creative! You may enter as many times as you would like!

    After an easy foaling on day 341 this past Tuesday morning, and the resulting beautiful, BIG bay colt, we have spent much time reviewing the many great name suggestions for Pinehurst's Name That Foal Contest.

    After much deliberation, the winning name was announced today: Pinehurst's Prodigy

    Congratulations to Jenny Moore of Canton, NY, who will recieve $100 to Pinehurst Saddlery for her winning name suggestion!

    A big thank you to all who entered!

    Seems great!

    Day 327 (i think?) now; we took her off regumate on day 325; milk thickened slightly since but we haven't backtracked to showing up on the calcium and pH tests. Blood tests were all normal, so we'll hope whatever scare we had around 283 was nothing.

    ...I still think she may go a little earlier this year. She's ENORMOUS!!! With huge edema, too. Seems to be starting to get a little more uncomfortable, and a little more apathetic/subdoed in her stall. (she's good at those "i need another handful of hay or treats or rubs" looks) Poor thing. She hardly fits through the stall door!!

    NOW, if I could somehow figure out a way to make our mare stare cameras work Fix one problem, causes another. Always something!!

    There have been some fantastic names already- so keep the entries flowing in!

    All submissions must be in PRIOR to foaling. We're at day 326...the countdown is on!!!

    It doesn't auto-update, so most likely you will see your suggestions on the next upload...I try to update every night when I get the chance.

    The DEFINITE no names don't go on the list, but if there's even a slight chance of considering it, we put them on there!

    Well, the form worked for me - but I don't see my names on the list...so maybe they were already rejected or maybe it didn't work.

    I dunno...

    It looks like my names made it on the list, so I guess the error message didn't make a difference.

    Hmmm...maybe just try again??

    Our inbox has been flooded with submissions already, so it seems to be working. I ran a test, and it went through OK. Perhaps it won't allow 2 to be sent at once, or the server was too busy when you tried.

    Here are my submissions - given that it starts with the farm name Pinehurst's...I like "P" words for the second part:

    Parishioner, Pension, Playwright, Preconception, Perogative, Palfrey, Pardoner, Parfay, Pendulum, Pinafore, Privity, Propinquity

    and my favorite is Perseity which means independent existance...

    I was able to fill out the form and submit my names with no problems.
