Everything in the horse industry is full of challenges. Some are harder or annoying, some are fun. The one we are going to deal with in this article definitely one of the latter: finding the perfect name for a newborn foal. You want it to sound good, be creative or funny, bear meaning and – ideally – match the horse’s looks or personality. While some people tend to create a mix out of the sire’s and dam’s names, other breeders are more free and creative. We have talked to three breeders who have each told us how they choose show and barn names for the newborns.
Together they have won tons of medals and sashes, are some of the most renowned show horses in Europa – but each of them has their own personality and quirks. The Bartholatus sisters have given us an insight on the lives of their horses: A Krymsun Career aka Danny, Wonder Fritz aka Fritz, Rev Up The Romance aka Revi, Moments of Glory aka Glory, Marlanas Promotor aka MP, Cocky Tabuluga aka Cocky and Loping N The Shadows aka Brownie.
