Yah reeeeaaaallyy wanna know? LOL - I get that a LOT! I used to ride a 4th level mare who was, well, let's say...interesting. Her barn name is Sybil, if that tells you ANYTHING. She loved people - and nothing else, hated other horses, other animals, you name it. If they were around, she got very territorial. But looooved people. And she was usually very laid back and unassuming and VERY intelligent. This mare was a mental GIANT among horses.
My trainer was riding her one day in the outdoor arena on a loose rein. All of a sudden, Sib takes off, ears pinned, galloping like mad towards a bunny that had wandered into the arena. She clamps on the bit, and CHARGES the fluffy-tailed sucker down. She narrowly missed squishing it. After the offending bunny hitailed it out of there, she perked her ears, slowed to a walk and went back to being her normal, laid-back self.
My trainer told me that story and I DIED laughing. After she moved, I decided to use that name as my SN and UN for all forums, so she would know it was me. So, there it is, the story behind my name. Yes, I am The Bunny Stomper riding her Stomping mare - bunnies beware!
Aaahhhh...I'm just weird.
it it were easy, we'd all be going to the olympics.

Ahhh, you rode with Liz? Syb's owner is on here occassionally as LizDQ. And Syb is an odd duck of a pal mare, LOL! She's a nightmare...like my mare. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif
I first thought Squishthebunny on here was possibly Liz, but was wrong.
I have my screen name from my late great other nutty alpha mare, Misty Blue. Now I have a different nutty alpha mare, Galopin. But Blue is #1 and thus my screen name.

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by Rocky: http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_cool.gif I had a pony in the late 60's early 70's affectionately named Rocky the Flying Squirrel.

My new barn mantra...has changed to when the h@!! is it going to warm up?<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
my name..well, lets just say i own 2 horses, one of which is arthritic, bowed tendon, problematic feet thus requiring corrective shoeing, hard keeper.....the other needs supplements, has thin soled feet, back problems, so acupuncture and chiro.....
and i wouldnt give either up for a gazillion dollars, even if i am as my name decribes
the name used to be horse_poor_and_loving_it but someone complained it was too long so i shortened it
Wow this brings back memories! (for me, at least) In the old days when I first started the hunters, my trainer and our crew would make up division names.. like Short Stripper (Short Stirrup) and Hopeless Hunter (Hopeful Hunter) and stuff like that. Well I didn't think that Short Stripper was appropriate for a PUBLIC place, lol, so I became hopeless hunter. I don't know if I am hopeless or not, I guess you will just have to ask my trainer about that!! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif

My SN used to be BostonGold, after two influential dogs in my life, a wise, gentle, Golden Retriever and a vivacious and irascible Boston Terrier, but I kept getting confused with the poster BostonBanker. I changed my name because she had the name long before I registered, and her name is after a specific horse, not a desperate attempt to be able to finally come out of lurkdom. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif
