First Post....Help me name my "farm"
 
Hi,
This is my first post here....I own one Peruvian Paso, one Paso Fino, 2 Pit bulls and one Weimaraner.
My husband and I are trying to come up with names for our farm. Eventually I would like to board a few horses. I promote Natural Horsemanship and safe trail riding....
I'm trying to think of things I could incorporate into the name...it has a creek running thru it...but I don't like the creeks' name...{ Hog Creek }Yeah right??? { I am thinking I'll rename the portion that runs thru our property.
Then of course.....the Paso .....could be incorporated into the name. I sort of wanted something short and sweet and to the point.

I thought:
Sunset Ranch
Blessings Farm
Hidden Trails Farm/Ranch
Whispering Trails Farm
Copper Creek Ranch***

He came up with
Our last name in the title...then Pit Creek Pasos.

Our last name begins with an "S" ...so I thought...Circle S Ranch.
Or...my children's first names begin with T...so I thought
Double T Ranch????

Ummm....the address is 6665.....so that's out...
The name of the Road is nothing special.....
I do love my Pasos....but what if I "fell in love" with another breed. I've been researching Mangalarga Marchadors.....and the North American Single Foot Horse too...So including Paso into the Farm name would exclude the fact that I may own/breed Marchadors eventually.

Some people say incorporate one of your horses' names in the Title...
I've had a Topsy, Shane, Avante', OJ, Phoenix and Hija'......

The only one I really sway towards is Phoenix...and there is already and Phoenix Farm { for Peruvian Pasos } in New York!

All suggestions are greatly appreciated!!

I really REALLY like your idea for Copper Creek Ranch. It doesn't include a breed in there, which is good because as you said before, you may find a new breed that's totally unique and you may just "fall" for that. If you don't find Copper Creek Ranch very attractive, then I also like your idea for Circle S Ranch. It's catchy, and most people won't know that the 'S' stands for your last name.
If you are planning on branding your horses, Circle S Ranch would come in handy. You could either do an S in a circle, or an SR in a circle. Or whatever else you may come up with :P

Currently I live on a dairy farm, where I work full time in exchange for room and board for my animals.
Hope I helped, though my brain is somewhat mushy right now.

Thanks so much for dropping a note....I'm glad you like Copper Creek Ranch. I really liked it too. Hope I can convince my husband that it's a good one! "They say".....{who ever they is} with advertising it's better to be at the beginning of the Alphabet...instead of the end....so "C" is good!

I love it here, actually. It's a forty-five acre property and we've got about a thirty+ herd of goats right now. My job consists of milking mornings and evenings, feeding, and answering telephones, but I get to work with animals all day, every day which is what I've always dreamed of!

What do you do with your horses, currently? Do you show them?

Peruvian9, it sounds to me like your family consists of 4 people. How about 4S Creek Ranch? I'm not known for being a creative kind of guy but, it just popped in my head when I was reading your post. Good luck!

Are you religious? How bout Cross Creek Farm or Ranch? It could be a religious aspect or it could related to trail riding because you cross creeks when you ride?

"Gaited Creek Farm" since you like gaited horses in general. "Trail Creek Farm" "Gaited S Farms", "Lazy Trail Farm"...

I think Copper Creek is a great name! We call our place Sippo Park, because once when we were at my mother-in-law's lake home, there had been a big storm, and a sign washed up on her shore that had "Sippo Park" etched in the wood and painted in. My husband thought it was cool, so we kept it. I like it because it's kind of country sounding, and not something you'll hear everywhere. My hubby wanted to re-name my quarter/paint gelding Sippo---I said "What's his full name, Sippo' Beer?"----needless to say, I didn't change his name, it's still Sir Charles.

My farm is called Laural Lake Farm, we have two lakes, and are growing Moutian Laurals. What do you have on your property? The name could be "-- Creek Ranch" are there streams running out of the creek? I have an idea.... Maybe "Seven Streams Farm"? hmm just an idea :)
