1. Name a horse after a location, store or street name.
2. Name a horse after his/her parents.
Real horse people do this a lot and I don't always do this when naming foals, but sometimes it creates a great name. This foal's dam is All Glory and his father is Leave No Shadow. The foal's name, Shadow Of Glory, barn name, Shady or Shad. (I have another Shadow somewhere else)
This is only a sampling of my herd named after songs. It's a really good technique.

This guy is Hollywood Mirror. He'll be getting his own post for lots of reasons, he has lots of story's to tell. However the story of his name is about the time my hobby/horse/best friend came to Chicago this October. We went to this funky costume shop called, Hollywood Mirror. We saw Blue Man Group, shopped at HM, shopped at Michael's for hobby stuff, had dinner and talked, and talked, and talked. It was awesome! It was also the first time we'd seen each other since Breyerfest, which was all the way in July! When I got home the next day I ended up buying this custom that I'd been watching for a while. I decided that he must be named Hollywood Mirror in honor of our fun day and our friendship. Long story but every time I look at him I remember that trip.
So this one's simple. The horse below is Delta Dawn. I don't know if there's a television show called that or a movie. It's actually about an episode of Friends, the episode "The One Where Monica Sings" for any one wondering. She sings "Delta Dawn" in it but other than that I've never even heard the song all the way through!
