Name ideas anyone?

We have yet to come up with a name for this little guy. We have all bounced names around, but none have stuck yet.  We're hoping to come up with one, so he can start getting used to hearing his name.  Do you have any ideas?

I absolutely love having him here to visit with everyday.  I will go out in the field where he is and he will come running up some days, where other days he will slowly and curiously come to check me out.

It is so funny to watch him playfully aggravate his mom.  I guess all kids like to push their parent's buttons from time to time just to see how far they can go ;)  In the this picture, he kept getting right in her way when she was coming to see me.  No matter how she tried to move around him, he kept getting in from of her and blocking her path.  

He is very curious about the goats that are located in the pasture that joins theirs with only a fence separating the two.  When they come up to get water, he can't resist going to watch them.  It's like he's trying to figure out why those creatures look so different.  

We try to put our hands on him everyday.  I think he isn't so wild because of that.  He will try to nip at us, and I just tap the tip of his nose with my hand and tell him no.  He will actually stop doing it after I have done that.  Every now and then he tries it again, but I definitely don't want him to think it's okay to bite.  I do understand that they are curious and trying things out, but I don't like the nipping.  He will just have to nip at his mom, not me. 


  1. I love his coloring....kind of Shady.

  2. Why does the name Festus pop into my head??? Too funny! Must be having a flashback to the Wild West and Marshall Dillon and Miss Kitty. hee hee!

  3. Hi there, found your blog through Lana. Your colt is a nice-lookin' lil' feller! How about Tonto? He seems to want to follow everyone else around.
