What is it with Men and naming their animals some really like powerful name? (your husband likes the name Sergeant, my fiance named our dog Chief.

But you gotta love them

For names, hmm.

Jeremy?
Colonel? (in keeping with your husband's Sergeant name)
Mister Chievous(instead of mischievous)

Thats all i can think of for right now.

What a coinky-dink. My friend just bought a supposed Haflinger last week at an auction. I haven't seen him yet, but he is quite tall.

This guy here definitely looks Haflinger to me. Good and stocky, right colour, right height and right temperament.

Somehow "Happy" as in "Happy-go-lucky" stuck to me when I read about him. I'm not one for "-y" names though, so I would go for "Hap".

Appy, I ssssoooo agree with you about the male way of thinking about names. I think my husband feels sorry for him because he's so short. Trying to beef him up a bit with the name Maybe? He needs no beefing up though! He is STOUT!! When are men ever going to realize size doesn't matter? hehehe!

I'm adding all of these to the list. I like the Mister Chievious idea!

I also like Hap. Kind -of like I just "happened to find him".

I think my fiance was trying to make our dog seem bigger and fiercer than he really is. Not to mention having a german shepherd named Chief, is not the best of ideas.

Hopefully one day they will realize, and just be happy with things :)

Glad you liked my Mister Chievous :)

I dunno...brain no work this morning. Anyway, he's a cute guy (especially once his hair grows out). Let us know when you decide on a name:P I like Hap too!

Hey Ahern!

I think he is absolutly stunning! I just love his face, he has such a kind eye! He looks like a haflinger to me as well, I don't see even a bit of Quarter in him.

I'm absolutly terrible with names but for some reason when I saw him I instantly thought of the name Caleb.

Can't wait to hear what you choose for a name and see more pictuers of you guys riding/driving him!

Thanks Fehr!! I just adore him. I'll have to get better pics of him. He was a little distraught from the beating he took all day from my "boys". He stuck up for himself though. Every one of them has war wounds! TTTTTTOOOOO much testosterone going on in my barn! Maybe I should have gotten a mare!

Adding Caleb to the list as well!

Haha I agree, with mares you have less fights. LOL!! He's so adorable, though.

Ride more, worry less.
