    Since you're posting in the Endurance & Trail forum I'm assuming you're interested in a saddle for trail, not for show... If so, you might look at a Tucker Equitation Endurance, which is what I ride...

    In my case, Shug was from my Nana! Everyone called her that, for Sugar obviously. But I think you're right about The Color Purple; I think Shug may have been the saloon singer.

    I just suggested...

    A neighbor bought a "totally broke" TWH from them about 2 years ago. Turned out not to be the case - he's still pretty spooky and gets excited with other horses on the trail; not the relaxed ride she...

    She looks (and sounds) sweet so I'd probably start with "Shug" (short for sugar) until her personality shows through and something else strikes you. Shug also pics up the "Sh" sound from Shiver.

    There's a little irony in the references to George Morris. Anecdote: I got to interview GM for an article in 2013. Doing my advance research I wondered why he had only gotten to ride in one Olympics...

    Some of our favorites came from East Texas but may be common all over the South. Notably "deet," "jeet" and "squeet" used to plan a meal outing.

    One of my favorites is "moninem" - as in, "How's your mominem?"

    Well y'all are just wrong.

    Really though, why "hate" any phrases? They're just part of the unique charm and character of a particular region. Every region has them and IMO we should appreciate...

    With all respect, I believe if COTH forums wanted to make it impossible to post COTH articles they probably "have the technology," and would do that if it was was being abused.

    However, this is...

    I loved Phyllis Diller. My favorite line of hers was, "My surgeon said if I had one more face lift I'll have a goatee." Followed by that bawdy laugh, of course. Good times.

    As for Axl Rose, I...

    If I have towels that are getting too "gently used" for the house I put a few in my trailer, even cut them into quarters. Always seems to be something horse-related that needs cleaning up when you're...
