Beautiful foals, Lewis! I'm impressed by all the names - I have a hard enough time with the small handful I have! Looking forward to the rest of your crop :)

Thanks. I try and make sure the name is something related to both the Sires and the Dams names (or at least parts of their names). With some of them, it is pretty easy e.g. Super(docious) Mirac(u)l(ous Lov)e. However, sometimes I have to really stretch the imagination to come up with a suitable name. Every once in a while, nothing comes readily to mind and I’ll have to think of something from my past that had special meaning to me (e.g. an old girlfriend’s nickname or a favorite song or book from when I was younger). I also usually start planning the name from as soon as the breeding takes place so, if nothing comes to mind right away, I have about a year to figure out a name. The danger is that somebody might end up taking a name I had thought up or used a name that was very close to one I had thought up and I’ll have to rethink that name.
