Barn names that start with "D"

Hey Guys,

I was wondering if you had any good barn names that started with "D". I am getting a new mare and her barn name is Drew... yeah... I'm not changing my name so she is going to change hers . She is 6 and knows the sound of the "D" so it must be something that starts with that letter. Her show name is Nancy Drew. Which I don't mind so much.

She isn't registered because she was too small for the track. But I will post her dam and sire's pedigrees for reference

She's got pretty amazing bloodlines!

Dam: Ransom Note Horse Pedigree

Sire: Kiris Clown Horse Pedigree (it's a horrible pic of him but he really was a great sire)

Thanks!

Question

From the pedigree you have shown she is 100 % TB. I know of NO TB that cannot be registered even if they are only 14:2 hh. The Jockey club has no restrictions on height.

You aren't eventing your Draft X TB? You know, I haven't seen pictures of her yet now that I'm thinking about it. I know you've posted pictures, I have to go find them.

LOVE the name Nancy Drew! SO CUTE!!

Why not just Drew? If that's her barn name already. I think it's cute.

Spyder- I have absolutely no idea. Her breeder (race person) said that she wasn't going to register her because she is too small and it wouldn't be worth the effort. It's frustrating.

MIEventer- yeah look up the thread "i know her breeding, can you guess" and there will be pics of my girl. I am still going to event her as well as the new girl.

I don't want her barn name to be Drew because my name is Drew. That's weird to me. Haha. But I am definitely keeping her show name. Someone suggested that I juts call her "Nan" but I already have a cat with that name!

oh and Spyder- this is the horse that I asked about on the other forum when I asked about the unregistered OTTB mare still being a TB.

I will post pics of her when she is officially mine. I don't want to just in case I end up not getting her for some reason.

OOOOH! I see what you mean by not changing your name - I read that wrong.

What about

Diva
Dixie
Dallas

Eh...it's hard to pick a name for a horse one doesn't know. I remember when I got Nelson I really wanted a great show name for him and I asked friends to hep me come up with names - but in the end, it was my Husband who came up with it. It suited him perfectly.

I can try to help you, but you know your mare :)

If that was the reason her breeder gave you then he is hiding something.

ALL TB's are registered at birth and MUST be registered withing a specific time frame. How did her breeder know she was going to be too small when she was a foal unless she was born the size of a dog? Most reasons for not registering a TB (and she has decent bloodlines) is failure to pay the stud the full breeding fees, or problems that breeder may have with the jockey club (from previous dealings) or she actually was registered and the breeder is keeping the papers.

The other thing is there have been 14:2hh TB that have won major stakes races and MOST breeders don't worry about size. I personally would not use that excuse the breeder gave you for it make you out to sound ,lets say not being honest or foolish (and I don't believe you are). Just say the breeder never registered her...period.

She still can be registered........

I agree with Spyder Eventerdrew - this is something you should seriously look into if you are considering to buy her.

I think you are being fed a spoon of patootie by the breeder/owner of this TB you are eyeing.

if she were registered, would'nt her pedigree be on pedigreequery? If she is indeed registered and the breeder wasn't being honest, then I don't know her registered name. The woman who owns her now has been friends with the breeder since the mare was born. I think she would have known something was up if that was the case.

Is it possible that she was an AI baby and the COULDN'T register her? From what I understand all registered TB's must be live cover.
