I just recently bought a paint QH cross with double blue eyes and he is a darling. But his name does not fit him. At all.
The previous owner has been calling him Dozer, and his owner before that called him beast. I don't think that either one of them fit his personality or his looks.
He is not the biggest horse ever, so beast just doesn't fit and he doesn't act like a beast. He is very laid back and relaxed.
I was a little sceptical about changing the name because some people don't like to change the name if the horse already knows and responds to his name, but I don't believe he knows his name. The previous owner only owned the horse for a few months and she changed the name when she purchased him. So it seems like he has already had a few name changes and it didn't seem to phase him. So I don't think changing the name is a problem. The problem is finding a name that fits.
The names I like so far are Beaux (Bo, but cajun with an "x", because I live in south Louisiana), Blu, Chevy and Charlie.
Can any one think of a name that would be cute and fit his laid back personality?
