[RC] horses living up to names - Karen Casemier

I've recently been making a concerted effort to only refer to my mare in positive terms. I used to, for example, call out "Hi there fatty" every morning when I went to let the horses out to pasture (believe me, she puts the "air" in air fern, and the "easy" in easy keeper).

A friend of mine, not a horseperson but truly one of the nicest people I know (I don't understand these nice people at all) asked me how I would feel if she said "Hi fatty" to me every morning.

Never thought of it that way - no wonder she was always such a bitch ;>)

Anyway, now it's "Hello beautiful" or "Hello gorgeous". Occasionally during a ride, the normal round of explative-laden nicknames pours out, but old habits die hard...
