    Okay, not to long ago, my friend gave me her QH mare. And she's a wonderful horse. But her name...Philomena doesn't fit her personality. She's tall, strong, very pretty, laid back and doesn't like other horses to much. And I just can't think of another name for her. She's a chestnut, has a blaze and 2 socks on her right front and back legs.

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    I've learned to never, ever change the barn name of a horse. It's bad luck.

    Quote:Really!? I didn't know that.....Well, bad luck or not. I'm changing it. Does she look like a Phil-O-me-na to you? I was thinking of Selena? Maybe?

    I'd shorten it...

    "Phila" sounds like "Phillah" or you could even go "Ome" pronounced "Oh-mee"

    Or even "Mena". That way you're not changing the name, just using part of her full name.
