  • Foal is almost here - need a name.*L* herbs

    Baby is nearly here - momma is bagged up and ready to pop.

    Breeder is naming all foals this year after herbs.

    My foal's name must start with an "L"

    The obvious ones we have listed and like;

    Lavender
    Licorice Sticks
    Lycii (ok, its a berry/nut - but close enough)

    Lippa Dulcis (Latin names are good)

    Other languages would be great too....

    Ineed a small but decent list for when we meet this new critter - so that we can find him or her a suitable name.

    Thanks

      I always liked the German word for lavender: lavendel.

              you guys are wonderful.

              Lavendel is very pretty.

              Lola is still hanging onto that foal (pony mares are sent to drive us crazy)...

              I will post once the little one has arrived.

                not sure if we are thinkign the same thing, but isn't Lychee? either way, that's a cool name. though I always wanted to name foals after albums...

                let us know what it ends up being, eh?

                  A foal? "Little Shit" would be appropriate. Oh wait you said herb...

                      Actually, we had a "little shit" ... went by LS - pony and a half... I adored him and his saucyness.

                      Sorry for the very late update.... Thought we were going to lose himand I was pretty upset....
                      He is now fine, healthy, huge (for a pony) and his name has nothing to do with this years theme.
                      He is a large Bay pony foal, 2 socks, star and a snip and 2 dark saphire blue eyes. So logically his name is Frankie (Frank Sinatra).
                      Silly animals always seem to name themselves.

                      As long as all goes well, he will be coming home with us in November.

                        Wow! He's beautiful!

                        listen to your elders and the wisdom they bring
                        but wisdom and age aren't the same in my eyes
                        and trust is not based upon wrinkles
