I'm thinking about changing Drifter's name. I've never much liked his name - I tried calling him Drift for a while, but that didn't stick. His name comes from his registered name - Driftin' to the Money (yuck . . . you can tell what his breeders were thinking about) which comes from Driftwood Ike, who is in his pedigree.
I don't usually change horse's names - both Pie and Dawn came to me with those names and the names suit them. But there's something about Drifter which doesn't sit right, and I think a name change might be just the thing - he's working hard on becoming a better, softer horse and might even appreciate a change himself!
Here's Drifter's pedigree for reference. I didn't see much that inspired me in there, and his name doesn't have to connect to his pedigree - Pie's doesn't. Drifter is very masculine, somewhat fiery and strong-minded, although he's also very friendly. I have a preference for one or two syllable names. Here are a few photos that capture his "feel" - let me know any and all suggestions . . .
Hope one of you comes up with something good!
