Interesting horse names

I love horses with interesting/unusual/funny names, so i though people could share the names of their horses or names that they'd heard of.

my horse's name is Shea, it's irish (pronunced shay) and means hawk/noble.

and a few i read about in a magazine:
a horse with three socks called Lost My Sock
a dun called The Dun Thing
a showjumper called Totally Naked (imagine what it sounded like when they announced them?)

will add more later.

Some of the horses at the Olympics had interesting names. 'Butts Leon', for example. But my two favourite names were Call Again Cavalier (go Cavvy ) and Gorgeous George. Gorgeous George, how can you not love it?

If you believe everything you read, better not read.

My gelding is registered with AQHA as: Lintons Hangin Judge The Linton came from his dam but I can't figure out why the rest of it!

We call him "Judge" when we want to get his attention otherwise it's just "BOBO".

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

RedHawk, you wouldn't believe how many ponies in my area are dun and called "The Dun Thing" It's rediculous.

The Olympic horses had awesome names this year. =]
