After my lesson I talked with Laurie for a while about horse names and renaming horses. Some horses have an odd name that I couldn’t imagine keeping (Hey Girlfriend, Strike a Pose, Special Forces, to name a few!) I wondered about how one could change a name, whether you have to do it officially or not. It was interesting. Laurie mentioned that most horses have a barn name anyways so I guess unless it was a terrible name the registry could keep whatever name the horse already had and you could "name" your horse whatever you desired. There is just something special about naming your own horse! After I groomed Divine and let her back out into the arena with the other mares I spent some time trying to give carrots to all of them.
