The Name

Filed under: Uncategorized — iberianexperience @ 6:35 pm

Up to this point, I have yet to inform you of the name of “the filly”.  To give credit where credit is due, I did not name her, nor did I have anything to do with her name.  To be quite honest I did have some initial objections to the name, but have since come full circle. To me, a horses name needed to be equal parts eloquence and power; an attempt to assign a verbal expression of the animal’s essence.  

That said, a friend told me a few years ago, how interesting it truly is that people tend to live up to their given names. And that is the concept that changed my idea regarding the name of my filly.

Well without further ado, her name is DoubleShot.

A name that found its origin solely in the Java orientation of her mother’s name; but it has evolved into something so much more.  It became a definition for what we were trying to do; together tackle my second chance at an equestrian life, and perhaps, due to her own extraordinary nature, my shot at this life was doubled.
