Siglavy Ingrid, representing the number of offspring of that stallion. Mares from Lipica, Slovinia, are usually named after their mothers, such as Vista 35. In the U.S. Tempel Farms in Wadsworth, Illinois, traditionally puts a Roman numeral in the middle of a Lipizzan stallion’s name to represent the number of generations of the stallion line, as in, for example, Favory VI Brenna. No restrictions of any

Danish Warmblood Association.

It’s not unusual to see farm or breeder prefixes and suffixes connected with a name such as Blu Hors Matine who was bred at the Blu Hors Stud in Denmark. Oldenburg naming conventions

are required by Germany’s

Oldenburg Horse Breeders’ Society and

often are followed by members of the Oldenburg

Registry

NA and

International Sporthorse Registry,

however the latter registries have no specific requirements. The name of a filly depends on the status of the mother. For a non-Oldenburg registered mare approved for breeding, her filly’s name must

Top: There are many registries in Germany with no affiliated registry in North America. For example, this colt is a Wuerttemberger, and his name is “Cento’s Erbe” by Chinton out of Urlevan Pironniere. For most German registries, the first letter of the foal’s name matches that

follow the sire’s initial. If the mother is a true German Oldenburg that can be traced back to certain mare lines in Germany, i.e, Blankenese, then the filly’s name must start with the first letter of the dam’s, in this example with a “B.” A colt’s name must always start with the first

letter of the sire’s name. Once a horse is

registered with the

Swedish Warmblood Association of North America

the name can’t be changed. However, the

choice of that name, providing it is no longer than 25 characters, is wide open. No two approved stallions can carry the same name. Presently the Westfalen breed in the U.S. follows the leadership of the German Westfalisches

Pferdestammbuch e.V.

which allows owners to take their time naming the babies. A stallion isn’t named until he is licensed and taken into the Westfalen breeding program. A mare should be named when she begins

competing or when she

shows as three or older with the first foal. That

foal takes a name with the first letter of the father’s name.

Some breeders follow the name with the first letter of the breeder’s name or the place where the sire stands.

For example, the sire of Dinard L stands at the stallion station Ligges.
