New horse needs New Name

Okay all- potential new horse is coming for trial on Monday. He will stay at my barn for 2 weeks so we can decide if we "fit" or not. Really, the trial period is just a time for me to get his PPE done. I absolutely love this boy and am really looking forward to owning him.

HOWEVER, his current name is Mudd and I just can't get around it. It doesnt fit him in my mind, and I just don't like saying it. I am going to have to create a folder for him when I bring him to my barn tomorrow, so I am starting to think of possible new names. But none of the ones I have thought of so far seem to fit him.

He is a 15.3 sorrel gelding. Pretty young looking in the face. Newly turned 4. And of course I will include some pics.

I am looking for a name less heard in the horse world. Possibly the name of a horse from literature or a movie. Or the name of some other character from literature or a movie. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If you would like to derive something from his parents names .. his sire is Strait Power and his dam is Obviously joe's Gypsy.

So far some names that have been suggested by friends that I like are Baloo (bear from the jungle book) and Whiskey. But neither one just seems like the "it" name haha

Brush Fire
Aires (as in the Greek god)

Maybe not in line with your theme but I am using color and what attitude/expression I can see in his face from the pic.

What a nice horse! If they were going for simple names I would have called him Big Red before calling him Mudd...

I kind of like Red. ;) You could always throw in part of a parent's name (Gypsy Red, Obviously Red, Strait Red, etc).

I think we have a winner!! Jager it is. And they never got around to registering him so when I take care of that I think I am going to name him strait red. So thank you for both of those suggestions existentialpony :)
