Rosie and Bailey seem to be very popular, at the last yard there were a few Rosie's (I think JJ has a magnetic attraction to them LOL) The was Rosie Rosie, Rosie Mac, Rosie Foot and at one point another Rosie on it's way!!!!

Bert also seems quite common although I think it is a daft name for a horse and had I not been so superstitious Bert would be Thor or Merlin!

We have had so many Jacks and Jakes at the yard, in the end people had to change their names if they bought one called Jack or Jake.

Mr Smith
Mrs Smith
Winkle
Guiness
Wendover
Little Elf (huge 18hh shire!)

And typically, Rosie, always a Rosie about! Guess the common-est names (riding school ponies that is)

whenever I hear George, I expect to see Mildred, and Rosie should always be with Jim. (it's an age thing!)
