Bailey Baroo

I am known for, among other things, giving multiple nicknames to every member of my family, and every animal we've ever had. Each of my three daughter has no less than 5402 nicknames, and I can trace the origin of each. Just ask them, they'll tell you.

DN3's favorite horse is our mare Bailey. They have that bond that most riders only dream about.

I have always called that horse Bailey Baroo. And for years, my movie line deficient family has had no clue regarding the origin of said nickname. Tonight I finally let them in on the secret.

We have a host of nicknames around here, too. Billy Baroo is great!

Heh. One ventures a guess that you MIGHT have been given eye-rolls in response, but **I** think it's cool! ;-)

I can come up with all kinds of nick names here too. You just never know what the mood might dictate.

As for the free horse, I think free horse in these times can mean different things than "normal" times. That can be good and bad, I guess. Just depends on how astute you are in the selection process.

I did get a free horse one time that worked out just great for me. You just never know.

Buck: You nailed it! Especially from DN3, who is already convinced that I am unhinged.

RR: If the horse in question is still available the weekend of the 5th, I may go have a look.

Dave, all 723 of our children and pets have had nicknames.

But, I do not. I am referred to as "Sir."
