Never had any problems in the past. About 16 years ago, we had two expecting mares. The first to foal was owned by an older sister and she had two names picked out for her foal. One was for a girl, the other for a boy. She wanted a girl, planned to sell the foal if it was a boy. Well, she got a boy, fell in love with him and kept him. He had his registered name from the day he was found (missed the birth) in the stall next to his mom. For the other mare's foal, we had no names picked or a gender preference. She was named KT Elizabeth (K- her sire Kal-Niga, T-her grandmother Tequis, Elizabeth- my cousin whose birthday she was born on and because her dam is named Princess) and we always called her Katie. We discussed names, genders, even colors before baby was born. Last year my mom was wanting a black filly with four high whites and she got a filly with four low whites. If something bad happens, it is because it was going to happen and not because you managed to jinx it by talking about it. IMO
