    So glad that you got him! Now, I can't wait to see the progress you can make with the big guy .

    I don't know why I thought "Hondo" when I saw him. Maybe it's the big blaze LOL.

    Or Dally

His current one is "Blaze," which I'm not a huge fan of.

    My top name ideas right now are Tucker and Maverick, but I'm open to all suggestions! I really don't want anything too popular or stereotypical, so please give me some unique, perhaps Western-y, suggestions for this big ol' goof.

    Thanks everyone!

    Just a note; these images are from his old owner and vary a TON in regards to age<3























    Okay let's first note that names are very subjective......here we go

    Russell.....named after one of the most famous "painters" of western art...Charles Russell.

    Wyatt......obviously western and I simply like the name.

    I have a few more, but digest these first. :)

    SeemsLegit, that is one handsome boy!

    *****

    Here's a story to tie into whether a name is recognized by a horse vs the person calling the horse being the key.

    So, we got our horse at a broker's. When we looked at him, we asked what his barn name was. The broker said he didn't know and said called all the horses at his place 'Horse'. I asked him to find out his barn name when we decided to take our trainer to look at him with us.

    On our return visit, the broker said the horse's name was Chuck. When I went out to his pasture to get him, I called his name and there was absolutely NO response. I happened to bring a treat with me and went up to Chuck calling his name and fed him the treat.

    Even after our ride with the trainer, and the subsequent vet check (since we decided to buy him pending the results), Chuck still didn't recognize his name.

    It really took about a week or so after we got him to the barn we boarded at for him to respond to Chuck.

    Maybe if I had known what his real barn name was, we would have kept it. Since that obviously wasn't an option, we went with Chuck... Over the last 6 years, we've had a good time playing with that name; Chucky Cheese, Chuck Roast, etc.

    I've never had a problem switching animal names, as long as you have something yummy/fun when you use the new one Not a big deal.

    He's simply gorgeous! Definitely not a "Tucker", but Definitely a "Maverick" or "Vince".... Anything that sounds masculine as he deserves :)

    Very handsome fellow! Congratulations on your new horse. Good luck on picking a name-I like Maverick & Dallas.

    I love all of you, thank you a ton! All these suggestions are absolutely fabulous. My step-dad is trying to sell me on "Dufus McTucker" ...I think not.(;

    Haha! It doesn't fit his appearance, but from what I've seen it sadly fits his personality! He's an absolute, immature goofball.(;
