All my horses have been named for a reason.....
My 9yr. appy gelding is Chips, he was 6 weeks old when him & his Mom came here and he was chewing the paint chips in the trailer...hence the name Chips. He can be registered, his Mom is Paint me Grand and I guess he could be Paint Chips if I did register him.
My mare is a 10yr. red roan, I got her at 3yr., at the time she had so many colors that my daughter wanted to name her Cinnamon (that's a mouthful for me LOL), so I decided on Spice.
Spice had a foal 3 1/2yrs. ago, his name is Street named after a young man who was engaged to my daughter but got killed in Afganistan......his last name was Street, so when Street is bad I call him Pte. Street LOL he loved my mare and was just learning to ride, he would play with her in the pasture and when he was killed I had been thinking of breeding her and then I did.
I now have another horse Sugar who is 18, she belonged to my best friend who passed away this past May.......she left her to me and we used to laugh because we would be riding Sugar and Spice and all we needed was something nice!!
My horses are the joy in my life.....
