Horsey dictionary!

There are some horse related words that I see misspelled over and over again all over the internet.

I thought it would be fun to start a list of correct spellings for horse terms. :)

#1) Conformation (not confirmation)

This is a good topic!

However, I can't spell so I'm not going to comment on anything

I can't think of anything off the top of my head, but i'll have to take a look around.

I do know before here I used to spell definitely with an 'a' (definiately)

Great idea! I honestly hate it when I see things spelled improperly. (watch me have misspelled that... or that!)

GaIT = how a horse moves, walk trot canter/walk jog lope/ whatever

GaTE = the thing that keeps your horses in the paddock, and swings open to let you and the horses you choose in/out.

HelmET = (not helmit) is a brain bucket

Breed = a horse's "race" if you will, or to breed a mare is to impregnate a mare. A mare is never bread, that's something you eat, she's bred.

Hooves, not hoofs = horses' feet.

More later, gotta go work.

Hahhhhahahahahha ^^^ I LOVE IT! A brain bucket lol made me crack up!

I admit I say horse feet sometimes

Another thing I don't really like is when people say da horse instead of the horse. Or replace "er" with an 'a'

But I did know a few people who talked like that. I bothered me, and I find it makes it a little hard to read
