Name That Cria

Name that Cria!
Winona Wildfire and IceBreaker

Okay - we're still trying to decide on a name for the black and white cria. Momma is Split Rock Winona Wildfire - Poppa is IceBreaker. Here are the names we're debating on:

Split Rock Wildfire's Hotshot
Split Rock Ashes in the Snow
Split Rock Fire Breaker
Here's the thought process: Wildfire (HOT) and IceBreaker (COLD) so Wildfire's Hotshot because the Hotshots come put out wildfires. But then hot ashes (the black) in the snow (white) is the same theme (I would still probably call him HotShot because he's such a precocious little man!) However, Jim doesn't think Ashes in the Snow sounds like a name for a male so he suggested Fire Breaker - kind of the same theme only we're taking the last part of Mom's name and the last part of Dad's name. Any comments, suggestions, etc.?! We don't have to decide for another 10 months, unless we decide to show him next spring, in which case I'll have to get his ILR paperwork filed before the show and then I MUST have a final name for him.

How about Magic Cape for that lovely black blanket he is wearing?

Did you finalize the name yet? I like all those choices, although I'm slightly partial to Firebreaker. I also like Ashes in the Snow but I agree that has a slightly feminine sound to it. I also like "Melt the Ice" or "Snowmelt" as names.

Our first ever cria is due in February. We are very excited about it. I'm sure naming will be a challenge.

It isn't official yet because we haven't registered him yet but I'm going to go with Split Rock Ashes in the Snow. However, we call him Hotshot - he's earned that name with his spunky, look at me aren't I something attitude. I need to get new pics taken because his little face and heady are very wooly and furry now.

I'm going to have to check out your blog - I'm sure you're very excited about your first cria coming in February! Be sure to post pics.
