The Naming Game

To the tune of Lady Gaga's Love Game:  Let's play a name game, name game, name game.  Or something like that anyhow!  Introducing ?????.  To date I've had horses with the following names (some I've picked and others that came with): Maggie, Jet, Pilot, Pepper, Haida, Smokey, Charro, Roo, Charger, Whiskey, Roxy, Buddy, Shorty, and add on some long term training horses with Yeller, Sweetie, and Doll.  I need a name.  Currently my animal family consists of Whiskey, Roxy, Bella, Tessa, Reba, Joe, and Moxie.  



Sorry for the bad pics.  I need someone to hold her while I take the pictures because she likes to come right up to me, making things challenging.  


She's quiet, quiet, quiet!  This is her fourth day of handling and I can walk up to her, pet her on either side, including her bum, as well as scratch her entire head.  She will lead forward and backward.  Her feet and resulting angles are a mess but Derek my fabulous farrier will straighten them out.  She also needs some serious deworming but I'm waiting until she's been worked with more.  (I'm also itching to get after her with a scrub brush and clean up her messy stains!)  She was born a palomino and is grey.  I do have a drag line on her but don't really need it - probably pull it off tomorrow.  This little girl is just that - little.  However, this line does have a history of late growth and are slow maturer's.


My little girl's pedigree.  One friend has suggested Hollywood Hic which is cute but more for a gelding.  Farm name ideas I'm leaning towards are more basic type name like Kate (but Kate doesn't "fit" her.)  Thoughts?
