So, I have an 8 yo chestnut gelding, he’s registered in the JC as Sunny Note but I’m not a big fan of Sunny. I don’t know his exact height but I’d guess atleast 16.3 hands (his ears touch the top of the trailer 😬). I haven’t owned him for two long but the longer I wait to find him a name, the harder it will be to change it. I definitely want to name him something more on the badass side. I kind of like Zephyr or Keen but I’m still not sure.

How about something more unusual and spicy...

Vulcan - This name comes from Roman mythology. Vulcan was the Roman god of fire.

Pyralis - Greek for “of fire.

Zenzero - (ginger in Italian).

Phoenix. Also a goody for a chestnut.

He is beautiful btw.

Zephyr and Keen are cool too. But he looks like he has just a little bit more personality than the names you are a bit unsure of at this stage.

You are asking for suggestions for the horse's name, and a barn name? No Norse blood in me by I always fancied 'Valhalla' as a horse property name myself. Being a Terry Pratchett fan, dunno about a chestnut, but if I got a white one I'd have to call him Binky... & I'm sure a horse called Binky would be right at home at Valhalla!

@loosie, in the U.S. "barn name" means the shorter name you call a horse. It's also sometimes called a "call name." So a horse named Alexandrianopolis Dreaming Paradise might have the barn name of "Alex," "Dream," or "Dum Dum."

As trailers come in various heights and horses hold their heads differently so that isn't a reliable way to guesstimate height. If you know your fence height for sure then a picture with him next to it where the ground is level to the fence could give you a better idea or a picture of you next to the horse at the wither and knowing your height with shoes as a horse is measured at the withers.


Pretty horse. I like Zeus.
