I know a gelding named "Knotty". Problem is, when people hear it said, they think it's "Naughty". And he is!

I'm with you for the most part. I've always thought it would be disturbing to hear my name (or a friend's name) used for an animal. Funny thing is, both my dogs and my horse have human names (they were all named when I got them). The dogs are alright, but the horse has the same name as three of my friends. It is a little weird, but at the same time, I wouldn't change Grace's name!

My horse's name is Baby Girl. *shiver* And my other is... Miss Kitty.

I named neither.

But the best/worst horse name ever... I was at a show once. A friend was riding a fat, old Percheron bloodmare everyone just called "Mama." So my friend and Mama enter the show ring, and the announcer calls out, "And here's Dave Blackburn riding Your Mom."

It's against forum etiquette policy for me to post the list of names I have gathered.........

Worst barn name I ever heard was Trashcan. The mare belongs to a friend of a friend, she's half clyde half paint.

Being horseless is the pits!!

Tell us!!
Tapeworm is correct!

Now, what could be a worse name than that?

I rarely ever name a horse until something falls into place, stable names that is.
Registering a racehorse is never easy as you cannot call it with a name already used or after a long dead famous horse.
I have had ponies named with human names, Tommy, Fred, Molly, Susan, Ben and so on. They all had either unpronounceable Welsh names or something that was not really 'them'.
One dun Welsh pony was Apple Dumpling which suited him well. I find some of the QH full names absolutely ridiculous

Grace isn't too bad, I'm talking about very conventional names. Ashley, Amanda, Justin etc

Quoting Wikipedia -
Quote:
Ursula is a female given name of Latin origin, meaning "little female bear"
A nice name for a pony, actually. :)
These are the ones I know...

A mare, named Deformation.
A sire in my gelding's line, named Furgon.
A stud, named Donor
Demagogue and Persona make me cringe, too.
Report and Vandal also are no names I'd give to a foal.


Maybe I'll remember some more later.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
