A horse of a dilemma…

So. Many of you participated in our friendly “What should we name our neighborly horse” poll we had up for the last few weeks. You will notice to the right that the results are displayed in a dead tie. What I want to know is

WHO VOTED FOR NANCY???

Really people, cmon. This horse is neither a secretary nor a school teacher therefore it should not ever be named Nancy. This was Jazz’s choice and I’m sure some of you voted purely for that reason. Let’s just say I’m glad Jazz will not be naming our children by himself. (No Jazz, He-Man can not be considered)

Nelly is a beautiful horse name. It is soft and smooth. It can be used many different situations, such as: “Gmorning Nelly!” and “Cmere Nelly!” and “Whoa, Nelly” Nelly is a perfect horse name.

Here is a picture of our unnamed horse:


*editors note: this little mask on Horse’s face isn’t to punish her or be mean. Its a fly mask used to keep bugs and infections out. It is netted so she can see through it and get to her delicious grass and cool refreshing water.

Now, doesn’t this beautiful horse deserve a beautiful name? SUCH AS NELLY!

How are we going to settle this silly, drawn out debate? If you would be so kind as to leave a comment stating what name you prefer, and a legitimate reason why you prefer it, we would greatly appreciate it.

Here are some pictures from our neck of the woods aka our driveway. No, we don’t live on a farm. Just NEXT to one.



Jazz’s Side:

Whoa Nancy!

Here are the reasons why I chose Nancy, for the most beautiful horse name ever! Nancy and I have had many conversations, and here are a few of her memorable quotes for reasons why her name is Nancy:

1. “My name is Nancy, Commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Mother to a murdered son, Wife to a murdered husband. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.”

2. “You bring the crowns and heads of conquered kings to my city steps. You insult my king. You threaten my horses with slavery and death! Oh, I’ve chosen my words carefully, Jazz. Perhaps you should have done the same! I am Nancy!

3. “Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of horsekind. “Horsekind.” That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it’s fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom… Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution… but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: “We will not go quietly into the night!” We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on! We’re going to survive! Today we celebrate Nancy Day!

I could go on and on, but these are 3 great reasons why Nancy should be named Nancy! I rest my case

  2. Some names just fit. And some other names are way too typical. Nelly, for instance, is waaayy too typical. It’s like people who name their fishes Nemo. (who hasn’t done that??) Nancy, on the other hand, just fits. It has character. If Craig and I ever get a cat, we’ll name it Bruce. It just fits! And it has way more character than “Fluffy” or something else overly used. Sorry, Micci!

  3. Nancy is clearly the superior of the two, Nelly is simply out of the question, but have you considered:Fortinbras? The Toastmaster General?Ol Black Eye?Lil’ Al Jolson? what about Barack Obama?

  4. Why don’t you just go across the street, knock on the door and ask whose ever it belongs to what her name is?No?Ok fine. Nelly. I hear Nancy and think of Nancy Reagan. Not there’s anything wrong with that, but I’m not a Republican so I’m opting for the latter. This is an election year, after all.

  5. I am with Adrienne… I am fond of neither Nancy or Nelly… I vote for The Toastmaster General. If opens doors you don’t want to enter, I vote for Astird. If the polls are REALLY closed and we are down to the chad-debates… I guess I’ll say Nancy too, as I agree with Callie’s point. That probably was less than helpful. 😉 And, by the way… on my blog you said you were a little comment happy… you act like that’s a bad thing!? Get happier, is what I say!

  6. Dur! Nancy is just lame. Sounds like my grandma (though neither of my grandmas were named Nancy). Plus Micci brings me donuts some times so I have to side with her. Though Jazz did get me front row seats to the Greatest Show on Earth. Hmmm…dilema…I still say Nelly. It’s just funner! Ok, so that’s not a word..but whatever.

  7. Seriously who did vote for Nancy that was a joke right? What did you end up naming the horse? I was telling Morgan that we should have a girl’s night one time what do ya think? I am glad you guys are doing good!

  8. For your sake I voted for Nelly, but I agree with Callie and I agree even more with Adrienne. Neighbor horses, of the variety that you haven’t actually met, need to have really fun names!

  9. I think I am going to have to go with Nancy, Sorry Micci, but Nancy is a pretty good name for a horse. Take ours for instance, his name is Pocket and Emma has decided that he is not a he but a she and her name is to be Polly Pocket. Actually… I think my 3 year old is onto something. Name her after a toy!:)

  10. Just to confirm, you know for sure this horse is a girl, yes?

  11. Nancy wins. I voted for Nancy and I stand by it. It just fits… “Whoa Nancy,” “Hi Nancy, how are you today?” (she would reply with, “Neeeeeaaayyyy! – yes I speak Horse.). No, I don’t quite get Jazz’s reasoning and the masters and kings, but I enjoy the name Nancy and when I see her on December 4th, I will say, “Hi Nancers!!! What a great name you have!”
