The Slang thread....

For those of you having difficulty understanding or misunderstanding slang from different regions here's the thread to post your 'words' and your questions about words.....

I will start:

'Going to the knackers'
- means going to the slaughter house. Used like this: 'Our party went to the knackers last night when a riot broke out over the keg running out'

'Knackers' - another term for testicles, used like this 'John was really disappointed when that rugby ball hit him in the knackers'



(Southern Hemisphere - Australian OR Kiwi)

And here I thought this was going to be a thread about short hand and annoying slang words, such as "sup"

Nothing really to add, but the first time I read on here about someone having problems loading their horse in a "float" I had an immediate mental image of a horse on one of those flowery floats in a parade.

Oh my goodness! I just figured out like 2 min. Ago that a float was the same as a trailer.

I had the same mental picture, flowers and all, with a horse in the middle. LOL

Yup - hacking out, going on a hack, riding a hack, hunting hack etc.....English term, it can be used as to mean 'trail riding' or actually a term for exercising a hunter across the fields etc.

I am loving this thread!

So when someone says a horse is catty what does that mean?

There are a lot of words the QH people say that I don't know what they mean.

To me, to back a horse only meant to back it up not ride it. LOL

Catty - (as in cutting/cow horse) to be agile and quick like a cat. To be able to get down and work a cow......

Here's a good example of a catty horse: (I will never get tired of watching this....thanks COWCHICK!!!!)

Unless you get the people who like to say "hack around the ring a bit"

Backing a horse means starting it under saddle in the UK, there was a bit of confusion in one thread over this, lol.

Oooh can I play...

In the UK, horses wear rugs, sweat rugs, stable rugs, turnout rugs, of course they can also wear sheets, more lightweight, fly sheet, summer sheet etc.

Numnah, shaped pad to wear under an English saddle.

Head collar, the thing you put on your horses head to lead them, it has a buckle, if it is a one piece that slips over or ties in place it is a halter.

Injections can be shots or needles.

OH, and my horses work on the lunge, not the longe, and never ever lounge
COWCHICK77, jaydee and Roadyy like this.
