I gave mine show names for fun, well, just my gelding, Nelly already has a registered name. But some horse's have long show names, I guess it's just easier to use a shortened, informal name for them in the barn. I'll use my gelding as an example. His show name is Sweet Candy Many, his barn name is Licorice. I would find it kind of painful and a little annoying to open the barn door and yell "Sweet Candy Man, come here Sweet Candy Man!" It's like with people's names. My full name is Jennifer, but most people shorten it to Jen, Jenny, or even Jenna.
