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. :)
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.
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! Posted via Mobile Device
