Name for small horse barn?

I am moving soon. And want to give my barn a name. I only have 2 horses, 2 stall barn, and a few acres. I am moving to a very horse friendly town. Don't ask why I want to give it a name, because I feel like giving it a name will make it feel more homey. I ride All-Around Western. Show, and compete in high levels. And am a TOTAL hick and cowgirl! Any thoughts?

When we named ours, it came from the surroundings. Sometimes it comes from a family name, a horses name, be creative, but I really don't think it is something someone can do for you. We went through a lot of ideas before one stuck. Indigo Farms (house and barn were blue )

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

Yes, FranknBeans is right. Took me a long time to come up with a name, and the one that finally came was from my hubby's fav saying....

And that is how "Good Nuff" Farm came to be!

I wanted to do the same thing but could never figure out a good name. The one that makes me smile is "empty nest farm" because our kids are gone but the nest is very full.

Other ideas (not good, I know, but maybe they'll trigger a thought) -
Horse Haven; Haven Ranch; Corner of Heaven (our property is on a corner); RSB Ranch (our initials); just "The Farm"; Hackberry Hollow (for our 2 hackberry trees); Last Stop Ranch (because this, we hope, is our final home).

Good luck!

I was thinking like C&B Barn, if I can't find anything. Because my horses' names are Charm and Boston.

Good luck!! Our last name rhymes with 'Ranch,' So that is how our farm name came to be :p " The _______ Ranch!"

I have a small property and two horses.
I named my property

Brokenwheel ranch

There is a broken wagon wheel but callin it a ranch is stretching it a little. Nah calling it a ranch is stretching it a lot. But who cares.
