    Then a friend suggested calling it 2 Dogs - from a corny old joke DH used to tell that made him LOL.
    And thus it was named & so became my handle on this BB

    FYI:
    Joke is about an Indian (Native, not East) child who asks his grandfather, the Chief:
    "Grandfather, I know you pick all the names for the newborn babies. How do you do that?"
    Says Grandpa:
    "When a baby is born, I take the newborn out at daybreak, and the first thing I see gives me the name.
    When your brother was born, I took him out and a deer leapt from the bushes - so he is named Leaping Deer.
    When your sister was born, I took her out and it began to rain - so her name is Rain Falling.
    Why do you ask, Two Dogs F***king?"

    Cracked him up, Every.Single.Time.
    One of my favorite jokes ever!!! In fact at one point my nick name was 2 dogs because I told that joke all the time. So of course I love your coth name!!!

      I am a Mainer who landed on her feet in North Carolina. So I am a Displaced Yankee (I think Relocated Yankee was too long or already used).

      9 years later I still get "You're not from around here, are you?" No, sir, I am not. Heck, I still get that from my SO's *very* North Carolinian family (8 years with them).

        My horse’s name is Woodrow. When I signed up with a nice glass of wine....I ended up with Woodrwo. A good reminder to not drink and type.....

          I showed Hunters and no, never did find all eight. I saw it on a trainers license plate as find8 and poached it with slight modification,
          When opportunity knocks it's wearing overalls and looks like work.

            When I first got my horse, we weren’t sure we were going to keep the name he came with, so whenever we went to point him out to someone we’d say “the big grey”. We called him that for so long I was afraid he’d think it was his name!

              My late Arab was 14.2, technically a pony. Baloney just sort of went with it. Now I have a real pony, only 13.2. The brown part of his pinto coat is turning a bit roan, so he may be Roany Pony Baloney.

                PintoPony because that's what I had as a kid and what I still love today.

                  Mine is not that interesting - just my horse’s colour.

                    My username refers to the fact that I have...greys. (Shocking leap there, I know.)

                      When we found our ranch it was truly a super deal in a great area and I said a place like this at this price only comes along once in a blue moon! That became the name! Blue Moon Ranch

                        I was on COTH for a long time as 3Spots -- for which I had three appaloosa crosses. A small horseless gap in time and I am back with my first QH, a blue roan, with Driftwood in his pedigree. Little did I know the reputation of Driftwood and Hancock bred horses or else my username might have been "hesgotmynumber" or something.

                            An old trainer gave me the nickname. It stuck
                            Nine out of ten times, you'll get it wrong...but it's that tenth time that you get it right that makes all the difference.

                              I don't show hunters. What does "find 8" mean?

                                My name is a cat, not a horse. My ex hated cats (well anything that I cared about that might take one bit of attention from him truth be told).

                                So when we separated, and I knew for sure that it was for good, I got myself a kitten. She started out as Mathilda, then Tillie, then Tillie-Willie, and finally Ms Willie. MsWillie is the name that finally stuck. She lived to be about 20 years old and was a grouchy old girl when she got older. It fits.

                                  There is a place in front of the jump from which the horse leaves the ground to jump the jump. If you are too close (a chip) the jump is awkward, if you are too far away, the jump is scary, and if you are just right, the horse can clear the jump in good form. A typical hunter course has 8 jumps, so you want to "find" 8 good distances or spots and allow your horse to jump in good form.

                                  My username came from an advertisement on the sidebar. I've never been to Palm Beach and don't particularly care for Florida. I do love beaches, especially those tropical ones with palm trees.

                                    Oh, god, I remember that! Like you, it really struck me as funny for some adolescent reason and even right now, I'm cracking up over it once again.

                                      No fancy or funny story.... The first horse I bought as a 37 y/o adult was a Chocolate Varnish Appaloosa mare that I named Star Au' Chocolat.

                                        I love these! Even the "boring" ones are still good stories. And some of you guys have really great ones

                                          I am short, so I like smaller horses, my TB is actually 15 hand but he is compact so he looks smaller.
                                          I used to board at a jumper barn and one day I was jumping him ( he is a very stylish jumper)
                                          and a visiting trainer started say,"look at that pony jump"
                                          so my friends at the barn started chanting "jump pony jump"
                                          It stuck and everyone started calling my horse jump pony!
