I would be more interested in the question "If you had a house, what would you name it?" Or what kind of house would you like to live in?

I had a friend whose horse was named Horace. Horace the Horse. I always kind of liked that.

I'd name my horse Francis, after Revolutionary War hero Francis M*.

My Dad, born in 1915, had a horse name Flip and then one named Lindy (yes after Lindberg). I like those names. I'd name my horse Curlin, a great thoroughbred which paid off at the track like an ATM on four legs.

If I had a Hammer, I'd hammer in the morning. If I had a horse, I'd horse around in the morning. And If I was horse, I'd try not to talk. I'll be quiet now.

Tom Shewmon must be absolutely giddy about now since Nancy Pelosi is just a lowly minority Congress woman.

My dad is Ed. We called him Mr. Ed. My mom is Francis. As in the talking mule. So doesn't that make me a jack@ss?

I'd name the horse "Ed" and change my name to "Wilbur". Then I feed Ed peanut butter on video, dub in tracks making it look like he's talking and put the new sensational clips on Youtube so I could be famous on Tosh.0..

I've always wanted to name a horse Wildfire after the song of the same name by Michael Martin Murphy. I loved that song as a kid and names just about every horse stuffed animal Wildfire.

"Elway" for a stallion, "Sarah Jessica" for a mare. Or, just simplify it to "Dog Food".

I don't know about the front half, but the back half would be called "obama".

As the joke goes, "Which one is dumber, a horse or a chicken?" While they are beautiful animals, horses are extremely stupid. And don't trust them. When I was 16, I was helping an old guy at his farm. One morning , after I fed the horses, I turned my back and one of them bit into my shoulder and lifted me off the ground. When I got loose, I bit him on the nose until he bled. He didn't mess with me after that, probably sensing that I'm King of the Badasses.

Apparently, the 6th and 7th of January are the best days for castration.

When I got my horse, he already had a name. But since it was a gelding, I referred to him as "it"

I wouldn't name it anything.

You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name, It felt good to be out of the rain. In the desert you can remember your name, 'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain. La la, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la La la, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la

"First"...as in "First Grade" perhaps?

Anyway, if the horse was fast, I'd name it Firmus If it was slow, I'd name it Glue.

Fat A$$. That way, when someone wants me to do something I'd rather not do, I can say, "No, thanks, I'd rather go sit on my Fat A$$."
