Drumroll Please…..

First, thank you to everyone who made suggestions. It was really nice of you to take the time to do so. I especially want to thank Saiph who went above and beyond in making suggestions.

I really wanted to love the name Eeyore. It is cute and silly but it doesn’t fit the gelding I’ve grown to love so much. His registered name isn’t very helpful for a barn name which would have made this process simpler.

My feet were really held to the fire when Wyatt declared he had a new name for him and started calling him by it on the regular. As cute as it is to let Wyatt name animals in the house (Waggy Tails and Gizmo are thanks to him) I could not wrap my head around Starstream. Though unfortunately the big guy is starting to recognize it coming from Wyatt. He was this close to being called Star.

The name choices were narrowed down to two names that I kept going back to:

Cisco

Sunangel/Sunny (suggested by Saiph)

I played around with both of them all week but for some reason while both sounded awesome in my head neither sounded right as I called out to him or patted him with a “Good boy Cisco”

Which is why I delayed announcing his new name on here. I wanted to make sure it was right.

It was back to the drawing board and I started running every word that came to mind as a potential new name. I googled some more. I wracked my brain and then bam! It hit me.

Skeptical horse is skeptical

But first I googled the definition to make sure I wasn’t naming him something ridiculous. My original intent was to use the Spanish word but it doesn’t mean the same thing as in English and really didn’t fit him.

He doesnโ€™t trust me in this

The word has two meanings and both fit us perfectly. I’m so excited!

1) sail about in an area without a precise destination, especially for pleasure.

Um…yeah. Pleasure is where it is all about and while I am working hard on learning and improving we have no set destination in mind

2) travel smoothly at a moderate or economical speed.

Heheheh…that pretty much sums up the big guy.

So what is this word???

Everyone….

Meet….

Cruise

(Cruz in Spanish, while pronounced the same, means cross)

  2. LOVE IT and think it is very apt for him. Just hit cruise button and go on your ride ๐Ÿ˜‰ MUCH better than Star (Though I might have thought it funny to call him Star Lord) HA….

    Also I do like Cisco too ๐Ÿ™‚ But Cruise or Cruz…..works for me. ๐Ÿ™‚
