    I was wonder how this thread could possibly be 3 pages long. Apparently we went a little off topic!

    =)

    My 2 cents; if it uses slices of bread, then it's a "sandwich."
    If it's on (in?) a long tubular type roll, it's a "sub" (or possibly a hoggie - no wait, I think a "hoggie" is the kind of bread that a "sub" is made with... oh never mind, I don't know what I'm talking about.)

    Lol

    Going back the OP's question.

    I can understand the confusion. A lot of older American books refer to foals of both gender as 'colt', with then clarification such as 'horse colt'. Off the top of my head, I can clearly remember Flicka being referred to as Rocket's colt, and also a reference to a 'colt' in Misty that was a filly too.

    Exactly ... I followed my memory south from PA. And speaking of bread, you can't get a good Keiser roll down here.

    Omg ditto here, I also thought that all flea bitten grey's were arabians because the horse I was riding was a flea bitten arabian. The workings of a 6 year old mind *shakes head*

    I know some adults that still think that! Before my foal was born, people kept asking if my mare had her "pony" yet. All I could think of was "I sure hope not, I'm hoping for a horse!"
