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".

You used a swear word, Tom. Feel free to repost w/out it. I'll message you the text if you need it.

Finally. Something worth commenting on! I would name my horse Jasper.

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.

Well now some of you guys have my horse so upset I'm going to have to get his massage therapist out early this week.

If I had a donkey, I'd name him Ho-Tee.

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)

LadyJ 4 years, 1 month ago

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 had a friend whose horse was named Horace. Horace the Horse. I always kind of liked that.

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?
