As a precaution, I would advise you guys to stay awake or sleep alone with the door locked. :)

I have both. Chickens are definitely more dumb. Horses aren't super-intelligent, but they can be trained.

Chickens eat with their peckers which aint too smart.

I don't know about the front half, but the back half would be called "obama".

"Elway" for a stallion, "Sarah Jessica" for a mare. Or, just simplify it to "Dog Food".

I've always wanted to name a horse Wildfire after the song of the same name by Michael Martin Murphy. I loved that song as a kid and names just about every horse stuffed animal Wildfire.

I'd name the horse "Ed" and change my name to "Wilbur". Then I feed Ed peanut butter on video, dub in tracks making it look like he's talking and put the new sensational clips on Youtube so I could be famous on Tosh.0..

He Who Must Not Be Named Which Andini did and the comment was removed. Explanation for comment removal in my post below.

thank you. i understand now. the original post had been deleted before i read the following. me big stoopid for not recognizing name of the harry potter villain.

am i to understand the the original poster was named "andini"? (funny how andini and nagini are so similar)

It dates back to the "Marion Disappeareded" blog (♣Free the Blog♣). Even posting the meaning or origin of the name of HWMNBN was not allowed. The reason given by JK was that comments about a banned poster were not allowed since they could not defend themselves since they were banned. Thus his name cannot be used. Hope this helps.

If I had a Hammer, I'd hammer in the morning. If I had a horse, I'd horse around in the morning. And If I was horse, I'd try not to talk. I'll be quiet now.

My Dad, born in 1915, had a horse name Flip and then one named Lindy (yes after Lindberg). I like those names. I'd name my horse Curlin, a great thoroughbred which paid off at the track like an ATM on four legs.

I'd name my horse Francis, after Revolutionary War hero Francis M*.

I would be more interested in the question "If you had a house, what would you name it?" Or what kind of house would you like to live in?
