Question Show name for my jumper...

...over the last month I've been trying to think of a show name for my new guy. Haven't come up with anything spectacular yet.

My criteria: Nothing frilly or girly. Nothing long and overdone (think QH names like Poco Little Mister Chex Brown Boy...no offense QHs...I own one...but the names are so long now.) I want it short, to the point and strong.

His info: He's black. TB X Fresian...although you can't really see much Fresian besides the black. 16.1. VERY laid back but forward to the jumps. Big sweepy trot and canter. TOTAL chow hound...loves his meals. Not dominant in the herd but not submissive...just kind of a cool "whatev" kind of guy. Scared of thunderstorms...because he was almost killed in Hurricane Gustav. His barn name is Parker.

I've thought of:

The Gentleman
Park Avenue
Valet (because he's a "parker" haha)

But after searching allpedigree...those names have already been used a bunch...

Any ideas?

what about The Admiral, its kind of statuesque presencelike and strong and makes me think of a big black horse!

Do you have any photo's of him to post?
Anhow here's what I came up with from your description from him...

Cool Hand Parker
Mr. Eats Alot
Whole Lotta Luv

Sound silly, yet original, right!

Good luck with your name search, I'm sure you'll come across something and then you'll be like "That's it!!"

Hmmm...The Admiral...I think its a little to salty sea man. My trainer has this whole seahorse navy theme going on (married to a navy man of 25+years)...so I don't think I want to go nautical.

Mr. Eats Alot...that will really strike fear in to the hearts of our competitiors

I'm liking Black Tie Affair...my other horse's show name is Sharp Dressed Man...so those kind of sound good together.

Keep them coming...

I've been thinking about Back in Black. My other horses show name is after an old rock song. Back in Black is by ACDC? I think? Plus I think it fits since I've been out of the horse world due to pregnancy leave and taking care of my baby girl.
