I don't know her. Obviously you do and know she is a kid. If so, then I doubt she is truly starting a breeding operation, unless her parents are supporting it.

Chances are it's for an online game or maybe a story she's writing, or a game she's playing with her friends. There's no need to jump down anyone's throat.

It is for a school project in which I must state what I want to do when I am older, and I have to give the farm a name. FeatheredFeet, there was no need to be so unkind. I was only asking a question and the others were only answering. Thanks to everyone else who answered kindly.

And can I also say, it's always been my dream to work with horses, so please don't speak as if it is a bad thing that I know what I want to do.

What do you find 'unkind' about my post? You came here with a question and told us little else. I gave my advice. It would have been the same advice as hundreds of others would have given, if someone and stating nothing else, would have answered on this forum.

Nobody said it was a bad thing to work with horses. Nobody. However, many who have seriously wanted to suddenly open breeding farms and asked about it on this and other forums, giving nor more information than you did, have received much the same answer as I offered.

Remember, we can only go by what is written and answer accordlingly. From your question, I have no idea if you are ten or fifty years old. Now, on the other hand, if you had given all the information, you would have received a different answer.

She didn't ask for advice ..she asked for a name. Pretty simple really.

I don't know her, but I find it helpful to do a little research before climbing up on my soapbox. It helps lower the number of times I get knocked off of it.

And it would be ok to just say "I'm sorry, I ASSUMED incorrectly and climbed on my soapbox prematurely. I don't have a name suggestion for you, but good luck with your paper."

No one has been unkind to you. FF made an incorrect assumption, but it's not without background reasons. We prefer to know when we are talking imaginary verses reality.

Your dreams to work with horses sound very familiar. Probably 99% of folks here can relate to that.

FF's answer also isn't unprecedented, since the OP asked on another thread about how to go about breeding Clydesdales. So yes, there were some preconceived ideas going on, but not without reason.

The OP's young and keeps skipping around about what she wants to do with her life. Totally normal. Not highly likely she'll ever own a breeding farm or be a BNT, but it's fun to dream.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
