Of all the horses I've had...

Winefsa stayed Winefsa
Bob stayed Bob (I hate it but he was well known in our horse community when I bought him)
Ransom had no name when I got him.
Atta had no name when I got her.
Poco was already Poco.
Liberty had no name prior.
Aura was gypsy (and beauty before that).
Raiderr kept his name.
Zima was Willow until I got her.

When I got Dunlap I was so excited to think up a new name for him but for the life of me I just couldnt think or find anything that fit him as well as Dunlap! Lol

I have three, two of them retain their names or nicknames, Chey-Girl and Gypsy
but Yazi under went a name change with my daughter finally deciding on Sweetheart. It took her about two weeks to think of names and all that time since the horse had no official name she was calling her Sweetheart......finally it stuck.and she is anything but a sweetheart.

I haven't changed the names of my two mares, as they are fine with me - "Star" is registered as, "Ms Northern Star" (my first horse), and "Laney" is registered as, "Sugarlane Madonna" (was foaled @ Sugarlane Morgan Farm).... I've had Laney since Aug., and due to her reg. name and age, (19), I can't think of another fitting barn name - besides, she trots up so happily the moment she hears her name, who would ever want to change that? :)

I think it depends on the age. When I bought my gelding he was 8 and who knows how long he had his name. But it fits him his registered name is Tuff O' Gin and Tuff for short. When I moved him to his new barn they made fun of his name. And I would tell them the spelling is Tuff like Cowgirl Tuff, fitting for a barrel horse. Lol

I guess you could say I changed Stormy's name when I bought him. His name was originally Stormy when I sold him but when I found him 6 years later, his name had been changed to Dillon. Naturally I set it straight ;)
