A Horse With No Name? Check out our "Name The Filly Contest!"
Veronica's newest filly girl - a chocolate
and white paint horse, born May 19, 2004 and without a name! This horse was field-born, but she exhibits no shyness at 4
of age - you'd think she'd been imprinted at birth!
As much as I loved her from the
moment I saw her, I was stumped for a good filly name for her! We went to the
GoodByeCityLife readers for help and came up with a number of names (at left).
Even though the contest closed in 2004, we're leaving this page here for others
who may have a filly (or even a colt) that they may need help naming. I left a
full list of the names below...
Our filly was eventually named Puzzle and
it was a perfect fit! No pun intended. This paint horse always has the softest,
most questioning eyes - as if she's contemplating some great mystery. She's been nothing but a delight to
As a matter of fact, one day the horses were scratching on the old pole gate and it collapsed
under the Clydesdale's weight. Of course all the horses scrambled out
and into our other field, but our
Puzzle girl was right down at the house whinnying to me through my office window.
Now I'm not sure if she wanted me to come out and play with her or if she was being a
certified snitch, but I was happy for her alarm before there was any trouble!
This paint filly of ours, Puzzle, has grown past her mother now, a Welsh
Pony. The photo above she's still just 4 months old. For her first year here she always managed to keep
her whites spotlessly white!
The colts however did not fare so well as they loved to roll in the dirt. Lately, though,
when bug season hit, Miss Perfect here has
learned the virtues of rolling in dirt to keep bug bites down.
As soon as she cleans herself back up again, I'll take a more
recent photo...until then, here's what our chocolate Rocky Mountain Horse (a
yearling filly) thinks of poop rollers.
Names - Filly or Colt
- she looks like it! Yummy
I believe a 'human' name would fit
because she's one of the family already
a lovely name for a lovely girl.
name her Allison - I think it has
a nice ring to it! (from Allison)
because she seems so happy
markings look like the disney mouse ears logo turned 90 degrees toward
her head so call her Minnie Mouse
or Bella or Marble
WOULD BE A GOOD NAME FOR A
CHOCOLATE HORSE WITH CLASS
Jamala- Beauty (in Swahili)
spots look like spots of storm clouds
so call her Solar Spots
or Georgie Girl
see the image of an Indian head on her back call her Dawn
like vanilla ice cream with hot fudge, so Sundae or Choco.
My son says she looks like a milkshake
beauty "Cappuccino" - she looks like a delicious
blend of dark coffee and frothy milk
di maggio "Maggio" for short...:) It
means May birth in Italian
about "Swirly Girl" for that great chocolate swirl

son -in-law thinks that because of the
short tail; Stubby would be a good name
of these names are women of importance
in history... so if you want to choose an
uncommon name here are a few....
Mairead, Shirin, Ottilia, Gabriela, Eumachia, Hetairai,and Livy
You could always use Dakota
Dancer for the markings on her side, and her tail
is a good name. You can
add to it with other names like Cloud Dancer or Plains
Dancer. She has long legs
that fit the name
Usage: Celtic Mythology. Derived from Gaulish epos meaning
