    Default equine vanity plates

    When driving in to work this AM I saw license plates that read "AUG UAA" - which would mean nothing to many, but those triplet letters stand for the start and stop codons in protein translation (Geek Speak).

    And it got me thinking...I don't recall ever seeing any equine vanity plates. Anyone care to chime in?

    Around here I've seen: EQUUS, WHOOOOA, ADD SCR (a show secretary!), GIDYUP 8, CHAPS

    I really want one, but I've never been able to think of something clever enough! HORSRDR seems kinda lame and it's probably taken anyway...

    Mine is TACKRPR

    Horse folks ...get it. Some Non horse folks... ask
    "what is TACKRPR ?"
    "I fix tacks-thumb tacks. push pins.. Weld the little heads back on,
    sharpen the pins.."
    "Really?!?!"

    No-I fix horse equipment"

    Please note-only jerks get the long convoluted explaination..

    I used to have plates that said GON AWAY, fox hunting term. I always wondered what non horses people thought it meant, that I wished I was on vacation??

    My trailer's plate is TIDYRBT


    It's not really. I've joked about putting it on there but have been afraid who I might meet at a road side rest stop! LOL

    There are tons here in VA. Mine is a horse enthusiast place with LOVNMY (and a horse head). I have also seen ADORMY (another HE plate), MYTACBX, ILVGLU (a bit of dry humor for you....it's a horse enthusiast plate as well), and FEI DIVA.

    Mine says rdngmic (riding Michele) and has a little bay horse on the side of it. My friend has of2rid (off to ride) I agree with the poster that said there are a lot in VA. I have seen some that I look at and say "I bet their horses name is ___" because it's on the plate with a horse head on it
