another one of those 'horse name' threads

okay so I need some ideas for a stable name for my new horse.

Quick stats -

15.2hh
Chestnut with flaxen mane and tail
Tb

She's pretty and gentle and bombproof but has a definite spunk to her. But she's pretty special to me already for one big reason. We have 3 horses right now but none of them are actually mine. Cougar is richards and as of last week because richard just loves jarred so much I gave him jarred as an early xmas present. He just had that 'thing' with jarred and I didnt. And then there is possum. She is my baby girl but she is only on lease and at any time her owner may take her back. So technically, I don't have a horse of my very own that no one can take away from me. Its been 5 years since I've owned my very own horse. But now I do have my own horse that's all mine and no one can take her away from me so she's very special in that way.

The names I have so far are

poppy - rich came up with that name and I love it but I have a polly and possum as pets names so far and I get confused enough with those. If I name her poppy im sure ill get too confused lol I really love the name though
gypsy - I wanted to call possum gypsy in the beginning but possum just stuck

That's all I have so far. Im thinking something simple, pretty but with strength would be good. If that makes any sense at all...it does in my head

I don't have any pics yet sorry. I know that often helps with names but long story short I don't have a camera or a memory at the moment lol

Why don't you call her Mine
If some one asks you can say "she's Mine"
Or call her Em's or if that would be confusing M&M's
I have a dog named Keeper because she is "a Keeper"
That would be a good horse name too.
I'll keep thinking

I always liked "Quinn" for a female.

Ooh, I think I really like Hermione! But I'm not sure what you could call her for short. Possum is really cute. I'd have to see a picture though!

^^^ I already have a possum. The horse in my avatar is my lease mare possum

Hermione is cute but I don't know what I would call her for short.

There are lots of nice suggestions but nothing that really suits her. It would be so much easier if I had a camera and could take some photos. We have another camera around somewhere but I have no idea where :roll: just like me lol
