$250.00/$275.00 for a registered name change isn't inexpensive, so unless you absolutely HATE the animal's registered name and have money to throw around, I wouldn't bother.
I was young when he was born so my parents had my sister name him even though he was going to be my horse, and she named him after a pop band that I hate xDDD it's a pretty silly story really, but I have been saving up quite a bit of money and my parents are going to let me change it for my birthday.
Wow I must sound like a really dumb teen girl right now lol sorry guys.
