I know this is quite off the topic of this board, but didn't know if anyone had any suggestions for me. I'm trying to come up with a clever and/or unique name for my farm. I'm breeding Iberian Warmbloods (Andalusian x's) and am in the process of getting a purebred Andalusian stud colt, so will be standing him in the future. After I name the farm, then I would like to correspond my future foals names with it. (Sounds like a good idea, but don't know how well it'll work!) Any ideas anyone? Thanks!

HI
Well the first thing that I would do is find a landmark close to where you live,(We live near a creek named "Cedar Creek") I know thats kinda easy and cheesy but it works! Hehe
But landmarks work, umm do you have any names that you like? You could work off the colt your getting name? IDK, There are sooo many options!

My barn name is named after a racehorse I met on a trip to Kentucky, his name was 'Secret Ambition', so my barn name is Secret Ambition Stables.

You could always do a color, then your favorite stone or something :D

Thanks for the ideas! The farm is located in the country (nothing but farmland surrounds us) and the land is mostly rolling hills. There is a small creek that runs through the property. I'm trying to come up with something that will work well with the spanish/iberian horses on the farm...

Ya Im not very good with spanish I found a name that I was gonna use when I was younger but I grew out of it, I like it still but IDK. It was Rise To Fame, I know its an arabs name but when I was little I had all my names planned and worked off of it lol. Youthfull exuberance! But even if you have a grove of trees, or I have found if you go through the color wheels at menards they have some good ones, hehe.

My husbands farm has been in his family for over 100 years and the Dutch Buffalo Creek runs right through our property, so of course our farm is called "Dutch Buffalo Creek Farm."
He wanted to put the farm name real big all the way across the front of my horse trailer, but I was not to keen on that so I told he he could put it on the spare tire cover.

We are equally "creative". We have a creek in our local area and the headwaters to it originate on the backside of our property. The creek's name is Warrior Creek so..... (drum roll)....

We named our farm.............(another drum roll)...........................................................
(I know the suspense is killing you!)

Just thought I would share where my farm name came from. I am always busy, got a million things going on at once. I also work a full time time job as the finance manager of a car dealership. The only time I have to ride is late at night. The people I used to barn with joked that I must band my horse's mane in the trailer because they would all come and get the horses ready for a show the day before and when they were all done and going home for the night, there would be my horse muddy and fuzzy. But the next day I would be at the show in the morning all ready to go, lol! Thats because I had to come out at like midnight to start bathing and clipping :-( I trained part time for a while and everyone joked because I would be out at the barn between 10 and 1am riding. Of course now that I have my own barn it is called Moonlit Paints :-) My slogan is a little raunchy so my hubby won't let me put it up on my website... "doin it in the dark since 1993" :-)

We lived in a valley that had 100 y/o plus Burr Oak trees everywhere when I began breeding. The wind blew across the tops of these huge trees and made the neatest soothing sound. We named it Whispering Oaks Arabians. We've since moved to another area of the county and unfortunately there are not many trees here. I haven't been able to decide to keep the name or change it. Now would be the time I guess before I register these babies.

I don't know how i never saw this thread before, but I thought it would be a fun one to bring back to life!
My farm's name is Mystic Rock Miniatures....we had just moved into a new house with a pond out back....every morning, I'd get coffee and head for the back porch to watch the ducks and herons on the pond. One morning, I walked outside and noticed a big flat rock sticking strait up out of the water. It was never there before...and only about 10 ft off the bank. It was sticking out of the water about 2 ft, so I'd have noticed....It was as if someone came in the middle of the night and stuck it there just to mess with the new neighbors. It just so happened, my husband and I had been trying all week to come up with a farm name.....and we both looked at each other and said, "MYSTIC ROCK"...haha!!! It was just meant to be!

My farm name is WATCHMAN P.R.E. horses....My married name is Waechter which is German for guardian or watchman and that is how I came up with the name....also with a rare breed it is important to take responsibility to preserve it.

Our farm is called Keystone Farm. We share the barn and some of the acreage with our friend and neighbor. They're last name is Koskey, our's is Lemke, so Key for the two Key sound in both names, and we met at Stony Farm where we both stabled our horses when we started out.

So there you go, Keystone farm...

Mine is Secret Ambition Stables, it was different, and but catchy :-)

When I was younger, I was visiting a Churchill Downs with my father, and we met a horse called "Secret Ambition" there. He had just won a race at Ellis Park (my last name happens to be Ellis), so I thought it was kind of cool. I always remembered that, and decided that Secret Ambition Stables would be what I would call my ranch :-)

Our Canadian base of operations that we started about 25 years ago was named "Deepwater Farm" because while in the process of buying the property, the water tests couldn't be done as the well had gone dry. Consequently in order to purchase the property we had to drill a well - and if we didn't get water, we wouldn't get the mortgage, and couldn't pay for the well drilling, so the drillers had directions to go as deep as they had to... which turned out to be over 300 feet... hence "Deepwater Farm" even though it was on the top of a mountain (albeit a small mountain)! :-)

Our names are Cathy and Randy. Our brand (yes we freeze brand our horses) is a C hanging R, so of course we are CR Fox Trotters. Nothing real original there.

Ours is JouryneyPointe Farm. Got it from the sale of our previous farm about 50 miles away. A church bought it to build on, called Journeypointe Church. They bought it RIGHT before the bottom fell out of the real estate market. I believe if they had not bought it, it would still be up for sale and hence, we would not be here.

Thought the least we could do is name the famr after them!

Terry wrote "we freeze brand also...how long do you leave the iron on to get a clear, complete brand?"
After a little expermentation we do about 15 seconds with liquid nitrogen.
It all depends on the size of the brand, what metal it is made of, and area you are branding.
