The name game

I've been trying to think of a name for the new guy... there have been a few contenders. It wasn't really a big deal except we'd been to two jackpots and a sorting. Of course everyone was asking about the new guy.

what do you mean 'hey buddy' isn't my name?!

There were names I liked that sounded too girly. Names I liked that didn't fit my horse life (for example some sounded too 'Englishy' for a little barrel/cow/trail horse).

hmmm... let's see if I can think of something

Then yesterday, at the Canada Day jackpot/fundraiser, I did it. I gave him a name!

I have a name now? What is it!?

To be honest its one that I had scribbled down on a scrap quite awhile ago. One of those 'maybe one day I'll own a horse I could name...' things. (I have quite a list actually) So when I entered I said "I have both horses here today, Raincloud and the new guy, Voodoo."

I'm hoping that he and I can work some magic to regain my confidence!


  1. Voodoo, huh? I'd have never guessed he'd end up with that name. lol!
    I'm just glad the handsome boy finally does have a name.

    Now go work your magic. Just no sharp pins being poked into the opponent's horse and rider dolls.



  2. VooDoo! So cute! I would never have guessed!
    He is a pretty boy! The more I see him, the more I like him! :0

  3. I like it - sounds fast, with a bit of mystique... Also reminds me of a fighter pilot code name - maybe from Top Gun???

  4. I like that name.Sounds like a perfect horse name.He's a very pretty horse,or should I say handsome?:0)Sherri

  5. OOOOOHHHH!!!! I LOVE IT!!!! Hope he works his magic!!!

  6. Awesome! VooDoo suits the little black horse. It sounds like he is working his magic on you already.:)

  7. Oh I love that name!! I think it's perfect!! Fits the black running barrel horse!! He is one chunk of a horse!! Good looking guy!!

  8. He's beautiful, love a black horse! I used to have a gorgeous black mare that I still miss to this day. :( Voodoo fits him nicely!

  9. Ok, just starting to get caught up on blogs and just NOW noticed you had a new horse. I kept seeing the name Voodoo in newer posts. I LOVE the name. He's gorgeous too!! I'm glad that Pie is now home and hopefully there isn't any risidual issues with the absesses. That would, I imagine, be very painful. So congrats on Voodoo and glad to hear your hubby is doing better :)
