    Fella got his name from his previous owner....I guess it was easy for an old cowboy to call him in from the field, "Hey little fella!" I desperately wanted to change it but couldn't think of anything I felt was suitable. THEN the name just grew on me! He acts like a naughty little boy often, so it now seems appropriate!

    Mac's name has always been Mac, his registered name is Mactaceous but I was told it was Macalicious originally, and then was told it was Macadacious! I knew him for over a year before I figure out what it really was.

    Val's name used to be Super Coy when I got him, lol, I didn't want to call him Super or Coy so I named him Valentino because he had a heart-shaped star and it just seemed to fit.

    For those of you that renamed your horses, how did they adjust to it?

    Ours all come to a whistle so they don't care what their names are. As long as they know whoa, easy, back etc I really don't care if they know their name or not.
    The gal we bought our mares from didn't use any verbal cues at all so I'm just happy they learned the main ones. I think Vida sort of knows her name. Maybe I'm just imagining it too

    when we first got boo (then buster brown) we always called him buster boo as a sort of nickname, because he really took a liking to it and listened to it, so we ended up dropping the buster part and just naming him boo, but it was kinda his choice not ours because he didn't respond to buster brown at all. :roll:

    My horse came with no name, everyone called him Paint, then The Paint or Painter. When I finnally bought him, I just kept Painter and gave him the show name Paint By Number. Oh, and if you can't guess he's a paint

    Koda's reg name has always been Where's Da Whiskey but before I got him he was called Warrior and before that he had another name but I don't remember what it was. I don't know how many names/owners he's had but I know he's had atleast 3.

    My mare's name was Showy before which I couldn't stand. So I changed it to Jubilee (I thought it was a cute name). Her show name was To the Rhythm, which I liked, so I just kept that. She gets so many nicknames on top of Jubilee though...
    - Jubi
    - Jube
    - Jubifer
    - Boobilee
    - Boobs :roll: (I didn't start that)
    - Boots
    - and recently I started calling her Shoes (because of Boots)

    But mostly she's just Jubilee or Jubi.

    I purchased my gelding when he was 2 years old and his name was, "Zephyr" Well, to shorten the story, my daughter who at the time was 3, slaughtered that name beyond ??? So we came up with "Chip" since he was a chip off the ole block of my older gelding.

    As for our mare, her name is Dixie and has stayed that way, even though I call her Miss PRISS sometimes, she is just a southern belle.
