I think some registrys charge $$ for a name change. But just a barn name you can change to whatever you want. I've never had bad luck after changing a name I think Vidas barn name was Midnight or something like that I liked Vida because its spanish for life and she is so much a part of my life I thought it fit better.

I think it is perfectly acceptable to rename a horse. Some names are just stupid and I simply hate them. I don't want to have to live with a name I truely dislike when I could simply change their name.

I know when you change a horse from a stallion to a gelding on the papers you can change its name.

Man, good thing horses can't read their papers! One day they're fully intact as "Gallant Starstruck" and the next day they lose their family jewels and turn into "Giggly Gumdrop."


I agree that it's probably just an old wives's tale about changing a name=bad luck. Although, I wasn't creative enough to change my horse's name when I bought him. So I guess I'm safe from the bad ju-ju.

I did change my cats' names after I adopted them. The shelter gave them really generic names like Bob and Spot. They were kittens, so they didn't seem to notice. If we changed them now, they'd probably get confused though.

Yes.
My mare came with a really stupid name that I hated
So I changed it to Dásemd, wich I really like.

I don't belive in any ***** that changing your hrose name is bad.

Heard that one too but have changed 2 of my horses names from cino to pedro (he looked too manly to be named after a warm drink) and the other from locky (thought it was uber random how bout you guys?) to lucky :P

Now that I think about it, within the first week of getting pedro he stood on a nail, made his back bleed and ran away one night, dragging my mom with him (this is a mini x shetland btw) and poor lucky ended up getting sold a year after I bought him as we just didn't bond and I was way too inexperienced for a skittish arab.

I kept my horses name the same and got bad luck. :roll:

He comes by it at least, if he's in the pasture and I holler "Solomon," he will come trotting up from the creek so I don't have to walk.

Its not like I taught him that coming to his name means treats or anything... I taught him to come to a whistle once too but I could never whistle loud enough.

Do what cha gotta do!

I only rename horses if they either have a DREADFUL name or if they are young (like 6 or under)
