Can/should I rename our new horse?
We're about to buy an 11-yr-old grade QH gelding. He's currently named "Balthazar" (or "Bali"), which is... well... not our first choice of names.
Since the horse isn't registered, is it common or acceptable to rename him? I'm not sure whether he knows or responds to that name or not. He will be our only horse (for now, anyway), so there shouldn't be any confusion in our pasture when we come calling.
Can we change his name, or would that be akin to renaming a foster child?
10 acres in the country.
Just settling in with our first two quarter horses.
