She’s got a name!

Happy Saturday!

I do hope you have something fantastic planned for this beautiful September weekend. I am getting ready to head out the door to help my little big sister photograph a wedding for a family friend. They are getting married by the shore of Lake Sakakawea…it will be a fun night.

Anyway, I would like to extend a huge thank you to those of you who participated in helping to get my new favorite horse named. A name is an important thing. One of the most important. And you all took it as a serious challenge and ran with it! So many unique, funny, sweet and sassy ideas, you all are brilliant and it was so hard to narrow it down to one.

I spent the last few days riding the paint mare and bouncing the ideas off of my family, and last night, my friends at the rodeo. Oh, which reminds me, I just have to show you this shot I took during the wild ride where cowboys dress up in ridiculous costumes and try to stay on a bareback or saddle bronc horse for 8 seconds.

Look at this crazy guy dressed as Wonder Woman. Hilarious.

He didn’t make the whistle, but he made us laugh.

Anyway, I’ll get on with it since I am sure you are all holding your breath for the winner. But first, a few of my favorites:

  • Etta-because she’ll etta almost anything (Holly Mawby)
  • Sister -(Holly,  ceciliag and Cindy all had the same idea here)
  • Sister Song- (Holly)
  • Karma-What goes around comes around, you know!-(Susan Hanna)
  • Hopa–meaning beautiful in Lakota-(urbannight)

I got a few suggestions on my Meanwhile, back at the ranch Facebook Fan Page. My favorite from there came from some brilliant women

  • Girlfriend-(Susan Price Slehofter)
  • Piper-(Jenna Jenks)
  • Rush-(Veronica Garcia)
Ok, so you know how I appreciate creativity and humor, so in the end I have decided on Etta. Etta, because she does indeed Etta almost anything.
I love it. It’s classic with a splash of fun and personality, just like that paint mare.
So congrats Holly Mawby for your great idea! Please visit my Etsy Store, pick out a print and send me the details of what you chose at jessieveeder@gmail.com. I have one wildflower necklace left on there, and that could be all yours too, just say the word!
And Susan Price Slehofter, Holly,  ceciliag and Cindy, you get the bragging rights for her prefixes–Sister Girlfriend.
Sister Girlfriend Etta.  I will be calling that name in the pasture tomorrow evening!
Love you all. Happy weekend!
