Smile Naming the Nameless

So I'll have a new horse soon. Just waiting for the coggins test to come back to make sure it's negative. She literally has no name. When the vet came out to do the PPE and pull the coggins he asked me what her name was and I said "Errr she doesn't have one." Vet: "Well what should I put on the papers?" Me: "uhh just put mare."

I have a few names that I like but I can't seem to choose one.

About her:
She is a 2 year old QH mare. She is going to be a bright red chestnut come spring, right now she's got a winter coat so it looks like she's covered in a reddish soot haha. She has a gorgeously thick flaxen tail and a pulled flaxen mane(can't wait for it to grow out) She's the sweetest thing. Has TONS of spunk and is very intelligent. She's very, very curious(she played with a leaf in a puddle for about 15 mins straight, just pushing it around and watching it float then pushing it again.) When asked to focus it took her a little bit but she figured it out. Nice big stride, works really well off her hind end already and looks to be incredibly smooth. Also the ONLY white she has on her is a tiny white star.

I don't have any pictures of her yet but when I get some I'll definately post them! Well actually I have 2 but they're not the best one is just a head shot the other is one and she started to try and walk away.

**Before you say anything about it not working out, both parties(me and them) + a witness on each side signed a paper stating that I give them half the asking amount and that she stays on their property while the coggins test is performed. If it comes back negative I can pay the other half and take her asap, if it comes back positive they give me back the half that I already paid.**

Here is my list of names, feel free to add any that aren't listed as I'm still looking for ideas. Which one's do you like best?

Caligo (mother of chaos)
Aurora (rory)
Kammi (Cammi)
(Harry potter kick begins)
(Harry potter kick ends)

Here are those pics I mentioned. She looks cowhocked in the one but believe me she's not (i've been out there to see her 3 times, once alone, once with my trainer, and once with the vet; vet says she's a nicely built little mare and should fill out nicely) she was trying to walk away and shifted her feet....again I'll get better pics once I move her to my place.

I personally love the name Calypso. It sounds very unique and eloquent and calming. Just my opinion!!

The art of riding is to keep the horse between the ground and the rider

I know, I know! I knew it even before looking at your list, or at her picture. Just your description of her. It should be "Penny" . I know, maybe cliched, maybe old, but it's easy to remember and say, charming and evokes the color and curiousity and shine.

And by the way, big congratulations to you!

Thanks guys.....for those of you who mentioned Penny, I thought about it too but I know someone else with a horse named Penny and let's just day the horse doesn't have the best riding manners. So I wouldn't want all of my friends thinking of that horse when I tell them my girl's name.

Keep the idea and opinions coming I have so many names on that list that I love I don't think I'll be able to pick! Maybe I should narrow if down to like 10 and do a poll?

Also thank you for the conrats Tiny! I'm very excited!

OOH! She is soo cute! Congrats! I love the sweet & lil bit sassy look to her!

Karma is my new cat's name, so of course I like that. But I don't know if I would name a horse that. Superstitious?? Lol.

I LOVE Calypso & Pandora. Pandora makes me think a little naughty and a little sassy, so it looks like it would fit her.

Reba is super cute too. Any other redheads you like? Lucy? Or red things? Gingersnap? Or red in another language? Italian = rosso, Russian = krasnyee, hmmm, maybe no.

Good luck & let us know what you decide!

Hey guys,

OKey due to voting from my friends and whatnot I've narrowed it down to ten names.


I'm going to go visit her again tomorrow so I'll just call out all the names and see what seems to fit haha.
