No matter what kind of show im running... I use my horses registered names. So... (the LA in my horses names stands for Lynns Appaloosas.)
LA Storm (Ty)
L A Malibu Maui (Roxy)
ImHeirrisistibleToo (Thor)

Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses. ~C.W. Anderson

So, since we haven't, aren't and don't have plans to show in any AQHA shows, I've been riding him in shows as My Beau for the past 6 years.
I get it now. Thank you for helping me out :)

I only had 1 registered horse, but these are all my boys:

Poco H. Cutter--Cutter was his barn name. He passed away June 18, 2005 :[.
Toby Keith--I call him Toby for short most of the time, though I call him Toby Keith a lot also.
Jack--I just called him Jack. I only had him for two weeks before he died :[. Didn't get a vet exam before I got him. Advice to all, GET A VET EXAM BEFORE YOU BUY!! Haha.
Snickers--I just call him Snickers. Sometimes I like to call him Snickerdoodles :].
Bud--Not much of a nickname you can get out of that. I refer to him as "big ole boy" a lot though.

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail...

it is fun to see all the types of names- people do get creative :)
Many times a person doesn't really like their horse's registered name, so they decide to show them under a different name. You have to show a horse under their registered name if it is a breed show or anything that needs to be tracked.
