New Addition



This is the newest addition to the family. She is a beautiful 10 year old dark bay quarter horse. I have been searching for a petite horse for about a year. This little beauty fits the bill perfectly. I don't have a name for her yet. I was hoping you all could help me out with some ideas.



After week of riding I must say she has the smoothest stride I've ever ridden. Hmmm, I wonder if I could knit and ride at the same time?! LOL!! After going for a ride my body doesn't feel as fatigued. Another positive quality is how short she is. I am much closer to the ground! A big plus as I get a little older.



This horse has quite the personality. She acts like such a lady. She is sweet and majestic. She is so interested and curious about what's going on around her. She is eager to please but not a pushover. She is quite sassy and independent. So, what do you think? Any ideas on the perfect name?

I am never very creative at naming things, but I'll give it some thought. :-)

She is a beauty! I like the idea of a shorter horse. The few times in my life that I had the opportunity to ride a horse, I was quite intimidated. I think I'd feel more at ease on a horse closer to the ground. ;-Þ

Hmmmm

how about Sassy for your horses name! LOL we had a cocker spaniel called Sassy years ago (named after Sarsparilla though)...



Lissa

I read your description and the first name that came to mind was Elizabeth, as in the Queen or our Elizabeth Taylor. Petite with attitude and charm.

She is beautiful!! I miss my horses terribly when I read about yours. :-)

Cashmere....Cassie for short. She is short, you said. ;-)

She's a beaut and a very lucky horse.

What a beautiful horse. I wish I knew how to ride.

She looks so regal and ladylike... What about Lady?

Gorgeous gal! Congrats on your new addition.

Knitting and riding made me laugh!

Hmm, I thought of Sassy too, like someone else said. Regal names are cool though too, especially since you said she's majestic.

I like Lady ____ like someone else said.

Nothing is coming to mind right now. I'm never very good at naming animals. I had a canary once, that I just called Bird. You're probably looking for something better than Horse, though.

Ayra (pronounced R E ah) Svit-kona

The Elf princess from Eragon & Eldest. She was wise, regal, beautiful, kind, and a warrior.

Congratulations on your new additon!

She is very beautiful! From your description of her personality I think you should name her Scarlett....as in Scarlett O'Hara from Gone with the Wind.

Kate/Massachusetts said...

Prairie Dawn. Lady Jane. Annabelle. :-) Harrah...except I'm not sure of the spelling - Harrah was the wind goddess.
