ok- I'm giving you all one more chance to rename our new pony. He's a bqlck Dales with a star, a snip and a sock.

Currently he's called Louie, which we don't like, but which will stick if we haven't thought of something else by the time he arrives at 11.00 tomorrow.

Do you want something that sounds a bit like Louie or are you not bothered?

seeker Sat 22-Sep-12 20:34:23

We can't think of anything like Louie we like. We'd keep it on his passport anyway, so no, it doesn't have to be like Louie

So far the only RL suggestions we've sort of liked are Banner, Drummer or Pippin (hobbit not apple)

In homage to our fabulous Olympics, how about a nod to Mo Farah or Ursain Bolt?? I m trying to work Mo or Ursain into a horsey name.....

DorothyGherkins Sat 22-Sep-12 20:35:41

Ursain Bolting..??

DorothyGherkins Sat 22-Sep-12 20:36:48

Mo Farrier ?

Ds has a hobby horse called louie and he says it in such a cute way...loooooweeeee that I love the name!
I was going to suggest pippa when I read the title but for a boy I like pippin too.
I also like charlie and William as I had ponies with those names smile

I wish so much you could call him Black Boy (from the Jill books) am guessingyou would get hmm face a lot though.

FancyPuffin Sat 22-Sep-12 20:41:11

I had a Wilam...

I love Pippin, but I wonder whether it's a bit delicate sounding. He is very sturdy!

I doubt if Rapide would suit him either, Puffin.

Actually, I quite like Puffin........

Pixel Sat 22-Sep-12 20:46:20

If I had a black pony I would call it Raven. Probably not very original!

Pixel Sat 22-Sep-12 20:47:22

Or how about Merry instead of Pippin. Still a hobbit.

Puffin's nice smile


FancyPuffin Sat 22-Sep-12 20:53:39

Yes <excited>

Call him FancyPuffin

Sorry dn't know much about ponies but am presuming the term Dales means the breed originated from Yorkshire so have you thought of place names such as

Pixel Sat 22-Sep-12 21:13:30

Or Pudding grin

Angus (the big horse ridden by Merida in the film Brave)

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Sat 22-Sep-12 21:25:58

Or Hindley.

Or Heathcliff. I quite like this! Your horse is black, he had a black soul!

Or going with the LOTR feel, Bill?

Freddie. Bit boring maybe, but he sounds like a Freddie smile.

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Sat 22-Sep-12 21:39:47

Penn. Really like that too!

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Sat 22-Sep-12 21:43:43

Dubh. (black in welsh)
Seren. (star in welsh)
