"Common" horse names?

What are some semi-common horse names where you are?

In Serbia... it seems like every public stable has one horse that is named Sarac (Sharats). Both boys and girls. It means sweetie. *sigh*... I miss Sarac at my old barn... that was a BIG horse with a BIG heart. *sigh*

Anyways... are there any common horse names where you are? Like... brownie... tex... *shrugs* anything?

Comanche or Apache for pintos/paints, some of my students get quite excited when they find out Comanches name because there is a Comanche in the Saddle Club, hehe.
Sugar or Spice for cute fluffy grey ponies, I know quite a few Sugars that are grey and a few more called Spice!
Spider/Spyder seems to be pretty common too for some strange reason.
Honey, I know a few pally's and chestnuts called Honey.

Thats all I can think of for now.

I know of a few small ponies called 'Charlie' around here. lol its a cute name! Most of the others I've heard are fairly unique.

I've known lots of Charlie's, Tootsie's, and Buttercup's. They seem pretty popular. But most of the horse names at my barn are pretty unique.

Spyder is my horse's barn name not his registered name and lately yes I have bumped into a few with that name.
