Auction Rescues / name help welcome!! picture heavy

Well long story short we went to the local auction and these poor babies were headed to a slaughter plant. ( I live right by the border so they would have been destined for Mexico.) Unfortunately there were some very stunning horses that slipped through the cracks. Including 2 very nice Arab stallions which went for 100 each. I'm going to keep the little chestnut colt and my friend is taking the black filly (will most likely grey out). Both are full QH not reg of course. They are in quarantine for the next few weeks both are snotty nose/eyes and coughing. The chestnut is about 8 mths and the black probably closer to 1yr. Neither one had been handled before so it has been fun....

If you have any name suggestions feel free to post them. I'm not very good with

That is a great thing you did!!!!!!!! People can be so cruel!!!!! For the stunning chesnut one maybe... Handsome, Artie, or King?

The black filly could be -Shadow

I'm really bad at horse names too!

Ask a mare, tell a gelding, and discuss it with a stallion.

Okay Im a huge Harry Potter fan and since you rescuing them was awsome and magical so here are my suggestions:

Luna (Lovegood) for the filly
Trevor for the colt

Bless you for caring enough to take them and give them a chance at life.

Well I am watching one of my favorite movies on TV right now and have the perfect names (in my opinion).

Ginger for the Chestnut and B.B. (Short for Black Beauty) for the colt. Can you guess what I am watching?!
