What's the Worst Horse Name You've Ever Heard?

So, what's the stupidest horse name you've ever heard? Y'know, the ones that actually make you feel bad for the horse and wonder what the devil the owner was thinking.

One time, I saw a mare for sale who's registered name was Dry Soap. I also came across a QH gelding called Little Gay Bar King. Can't you just hear those being announced at shows?

My first pony was called Spooky. Not liking it, I was quick to change it to Ponto - he seemed to pick up on it rather quickly. It was silly to me. It would be bad in my opinion to name a horse "Spooky," then try to sell it. I knew the horse a bit before I got him, though. The only thing he shied from was water hoses and fly spray.

The worse name I can think of is Paddy's mom's name. Her name is Gerdy, rhymes with dirty. I can't stand her name, I hate saying it. I don't know why either, just don't like it. So I always just refer to her as Momma. :)

I've heard lots of terrible racehorse names...I guess that's what happens with that many horses to name. Tiny Pink Panties, Hoof Hearted, and Viagra River were among the worst :(

My first horse's show name was Kissing Wind. His sire's name was The North Wind and his granddam was Kiss This so his breeders decided to combine them...I guess? LOL but don't worry, I called him Merlin. The poor guy needed a sensible barn name.

There is a line of quarter horse by a stallion named Asset. One of his daughters was named, "Kiss My Asset"

One time a lady at the barn was trying to name her qh foal and put up a suggestion sheet at the barn. Her mares name was butter n smoke and the stallion was private something.. someone wrote on the sheet "butter my privates". To say the least it was not the winner!
