On /pony/, we were calling him either Sora (after his supposed biological father), Greased Lightning or Cruisin' Hoofbeat.
A bunch of us were pushing for Hoofbeat as a last name, though, because he looked like a greaser, as Galvaknight said.
Since the folks on mlp wikia were calling him Shady Daze, I changed the name in my art to Shady Hoofbeat
(sadly I hadn't uploaded it to ponibooru at the time but I suppose Shady Daze is sufficiently neutral that it could refer to any colt, and there's no canon about him beyond this episode)
Sadly this canon probably destroys the Hoofbeat comic I was working on which continues to portray him as an insecure, rebellious greaser and not a squeaky studious kid (like I was), but I will continue. Alternate continuity fanon commence!
WAIT A MINUTE... Looks like a greaser... covered in ink at the end of the episode... mid-season /pony/ fanservice? or did we read their minds? **My mind is full of buck**
So I take it he wasn't named? Then I'ma still call him Shady Hoofbeat in my art. I missed the first part of the episode -- been super busy this week.>pic related.
