    My mare's registered name is Impressive Raquel, her barn name is Ricci [pronounced Ricky]. I call her all sorts of things, most often, I call her "Ricci love," hence my username. =] It's common for me to add "love" after everyone's name, it started with Ricci, but it's grown into everyone's nickname. I also call her "Ricci loser" and "Ricadick" becomes it rhymes. I try not to say that last one because I think it's embarrassing to call my mare "dick" when she already has a masculine name, haha. When she makes me mad, I call her a cow. Plus, she's black and white. And then there's the "my hunny," "my baby," "my love," "my pony," etc. Also, "mare" when she's in trouble.

    My yearling doesn't technically have a registered name yet, because I haven't taken care of it yet. I'm hoping for Goodness Gracious, or Murphy's Law, lol. But her barn name is Gracie. Most often, she is called Gracie, or Little One, sometimes Gracie Lou. She usually only gets called Grace when she's in trouble.

    My cats end up with a lot more nicknames. I have Boots, my house cat. I call her my Love Bug, or Bootsie. There's Sassy, the [male] house cat, that is almost always called Sassafrass because it sounds more masculine. The barn cats are Dora, or Dora the Explorer, or Dumb Dora when she doesn't something stupid. Emma is Emma. Isabella is Bells, or Bella. Mickey is Mickey Mouse, or Mr. Mick.

    Then there's my man, who calls Ricci simply "horse" and he calls Gracie "1/3 horse." Eventually, she'll be "1/2 horse," and then "horse 2." Then Boots is Bootsin McGrutsin. Dora is Cats Meowington. Isabella is Fluffs or Fluffs McGruffs. Mickey is Tom Felix. Emma doesn't have one because she isn't always around. He also has a song for Boots and Bella each, haha.

    Ricky has a few nicknames. I've only had him for 2 weeks and he already has a few.
    His registered name is Depostion, his full barn name is Maverick, so sometimes he's Mav.
    I call him Mav Pav, Pavlova, Ricky, Rickstar, Boof, Boofa, BoofaBoy, Baby Boy, Boo, and if he's being naughty he's "Oi, put your front feet back on the ground!".
    And the two horses I used to look after and ride and were practically my own, had lots.
    Nessie was mare mare, ma'am, finesse, lady finesse, Nessa-May, scratch, sweety and bush-rat cause she was feral but so loving.
    And Gidji was boofhead, boofa, sniffa, kissa, Gidji-Boy, Lala (cause he's a lala horse, he just has his own little world.) Idgi Gidji, Oompy, Moofah Loofah, Oomp, Willy. There was way too many nicknames.

    Aw! Funny nicknames guys! I think people who don't talk to their horses are the losers! I have always been taught to talk to the horses you are around. They know where you are, they bond with you, your voice becomes soothing as it is always a familiar sound.

    Nicknames for my horses? Well, Magic, I never really bonded with and my freind is taking her back. But she didn't really have any nicknames. My little 'mini' Roscoe, was a stud when we got him (he is now gelded) but I call him my 'little stud-muffin' and his show name is Roscoe P. Coltrene xD But when he is in trouble, it's Roscoe. My freind's call him 'the cranky old man' he HAS to be in his late 20s.

    My mom's paint is named Warrior. When he is in trouble I usually call him 'mister'. She has soo many nicknames for him...

    Lastly, Bo =] People always ask me what his name is short for. Haha, I'm like, nothing. That's his name. Well, my BO calls him Moon, as he was born on a full moon. But when I get personal, I call him 'bub' or 'bubba' and if I'm trying to calm him I always say 'shh brother' in a low soothing tone. But the two words 'bub' and 'bubba' have the most meaning meaning to me. Becuase no one else calls him that. You know? I don't know, it's weird.
