    after seeing the name "TheBunnyStomper" on a post in off course, how did you all come up with your COTH names?

    Mine, of course, is because I breed coloured SPOTted Thoroughbreds, and is also a tribute to "Spot" - the lovely Spot Pocket who passed on WAY too early in 2003.

    Bunny Stomper - how in GOD'S name did you come up with your name?

    I'd love to hear the story behind the other not-obvious-at-all names!

    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.

    Ahh, the great Sybil! I went to college with her Mom, & every time I see your sn, my first thought is that it's her! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_razz.gif

    As for me, I'm a riding instructor, so Teach is a no-brainer (also easy for me to remember)!

    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.

    Your rotten mare REALLY did try and squish poor innocent fluffy little bunny rabbits?! Did she never watch Bambi and fall in love with Thumper?

    the name used to be horse_poor_and_loving_it but someone complained it was too long so i shortened it

    Phaxxton is my forever-horse's barn name.

    He came with the name and the spelling... It's actually pronounced "paxton" - go figure. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    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

    Mine is GatoGordo because of my opinionated, upper-middle-aged, http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif affectionate, vocal, d@mm cat. She is 14 lbs, and, no, she is not a Maine Coon type, she is just fat, probably should be 12 lbs or so. My dad is very good friends with a couple who are both originally from Spain (came here for graduate school), and I remember, when I was a lot younger, trying to impress them with my gato, who is, I quote, "muy gordo". http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/lol.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

    Nikita was just the best foal in the whole world. She was the type that would have come in the house and watched TV with you if you'd let her. Unfortunately, although she foaled out and lived at my place, she belonged to Spot. Spot may seem like a nice person http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_rolleyes.gif but she's really evil and nasty and mean. She sold the precious Nikita and sent her far far away. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/cry.gif I miss my Nikita.

    Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get.
