Unexpected addition

This little guy was offered to me recently. After seeing him, I had to accept. I think I'm in love with him. His mama is a buckskin and his daddy's a grulla. Both gorgeous looking horses.

His sire:

Cool Shaded Garth (who goes back to Hancock horses.)

His dam is:

Dustys Fancy Babe (Who goes back to Zan Par Sun.)

Looking for some registered name ideas and some call names. Everytime I look at him a name pops to mind, but it's like it's just on the tip of my tongue and can't quite recall it. I want to say it starts with a G, but I can't think of anything at all. But if I just look at his photo..a name fades in and out so quick. Name help will be greatly appreciated!

Here he is about a month old:

Now at 3 1/2 months old

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

How in the world do you manage to just stumble onto such wonderful horses? I am jealous!! Gosh, his angles are perfect, he's broad across the forehead, and he is the definition of a dunskin. Beautiful!!!

Registered name Cool Dusty Shade? Shades of Dust? Garth's Fancy Dustbuster? LOL

I can't really guess on barn names without a feel for personality, though.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
