SmartPak Announces Top Ten Horse Names for 2012

SmartPak is on a first-name basis with every one of the tens of thousands of horses using SmartPaks and each year it enjoys compiling a list of America’s favorite horse names.

Continuing a tradition started in 2001, SmartPak draws the Top 10 List from the horses that receive their supplements in SmartPaks each day. Custom packed to meet the needs of each individual horse, every daily dose SmartPak is labeled with that horse’s name – not only making feeding mistakes virtually impossible, but also giving SmartPak unique insight into naming trends among well-cared for horses.

The top two names on last year’s list flip flopped this year with “Jack” replacing “Buddy” as the number one most popular. “Bella” moved up from number six to number three, dropping “Max” from three to four.

Two names not included in last year’s Top 10 moved on to the List this year as “Charlie” and “Annie” knocked “Blue” and “Teddy” off the list. “Rocky” and “Cody” remain perennial favorites with each making its eighth appearance on the list since 2001, the first year that supplements became available in daily dose SmartPaks.

SmartPak’s Top Ten Most Popular Horse Names for 2012 are:

1. Jack                 6. Charlie

2. Buddy             7. Chance

3. Bella                8. Cody

4. Max                 9. Annie

5. Rocky            10. Beau

“We custom pack every SmartPak with your horse’s name printed on top,” said Colby C. Balazs, SmartPak Vice President, Marketing. “We do this because we’re riders too and we want to help make sure your horse gets fed right every time. We also love thinking about the horses whose names are on each SmartPak. What are their favorite things? Do they love peppermints, trail rides, galloping cross-country, hunter derbies, reining spins or doing a piaffe down the centerline? Your horse is a member of our family and we want to help you take the best possible care of him or her – that is what inspires everything we do.”

Tightly sealed to protect 100% potency, SmartPaks ensure that your horse always has the freshest supplements available. Best of all, they are delivered free automatically every month, so you never have to worry about running out.

“If your horse isn’t on our list, all you have to do is start him on SmartPaks today,” added Balazs.

“SmartSupplements in SmartPaks are guaranteed to work, so why not give SmartPaks a try? It’s a great feeling to know that your horse is getting the exact right dosage of what’s best for him every day, and it’ll be fun to see if your horse’s name makes it onto our list!”
