Help with names and colour... Please.

My turn for names and colour please?

I know from previous posts, that not everyone agrees with cross breeding, but I do. The majority of horses/ponies I had whilst growing up were a mixture of some kind and I loved them to pieces. Meg is a Dales x Thoroughbred, and I've put her to a British Warmblood! Hows that for a mixture? I'm not breeding for money, I'm breeding for keeps. Meg is my girl, and I felt the time was right to breed from her, I'm financially stable and have both the time and money to do this right.

These are pictures of Meg, sorry I haven't taken any recent ones, I keep forgetting to take my camera. She is due on 11th March, so just under 6 weeks to go. I cant wait.





And this is daddy.

I've put the link, as I dont want to be in trouble for pinching the pictures.

Megs baby's registered name has to begin with "Icon", so if you can think of some names that would be great and much appreciated. I need a stable name as well please. I noticed in some of the other threads, some of you came up with some fantastic names. I'm hopin you can help me too.
Also does anyone have any ideas as to what colour I may get?

Is your mare brown or faded black? And is the stallion heterozygous or homozygous for tobiano?

Depending on these factors, you have at least a 50% chance of a spotted baby, which could have a base color of black, bay, brown, or possibly chestnut.

That would be great, thanks. :( But sadly it has to begin with the name Icon. Thanks heaps for trying though.

lol. I'd say she's brown. But in the winter she does look black. She's a strange one.

Do you know if the stallion is homozygous? That would be cool if you had a painted baby!

Who will you be registering the baby with?

Does Meg have more to her name?

I am not really good at the name game (hence my post about my own baby :) ), but it is fun to try playing around with.

Icon's Reflection, Icon's best reflection
Icon's Ripple
Icon's Hope, Icon's only hope
Icon's Angel
Icon's first memory, Icon's best memory, Icon in memory
Icon's first Image, Icon's best image, Icon is an Image, Icon in an image
Icon in a look
Icon's pretty picture, Icon's faded picture
Icon's crystal image, Icon's clearest image, Icon's mirror image

Okay, that was fun, I am stumped for now :)

I'm not sure to be honest. I think he has only ever thrown one solid in colour.

Baby will be registered with the British Warmblood Society. Thats the papers I've received.

Meg is really Megan. I've only ever called meg, or Meggymoo. lol. Boring I know.

Everyone thanks so much for the names. They're all fantastic.

And Appylover31803, I dont think your name is poo at all. Its brilliant, quirky....... thankyou.
