    Terms of Endearment

    What are your "pet names" for your horse?

    My horse's registered name is Sun Canyon Bluff.
    Barn Name: Sonny
    Pet Names: Son, Sonny Jack, Mr. Son, Mr. Man, Handsome Face, Handsome Man, and Surfer Dude. And of course, the ever popular Hey You!

    It's interesting because he actually responds to all of them. You can yell any of them across he pasture and he'll come walk up to you.

    Do you have any pet names?

    Aires' "official" name is Buenos Aires because his blaze is in the shape of South America.

    His pet names include, but are not limited to:
    -Buddy
    -Bubba
    -Baby boy
    -Schmuck
    -Stupid
    -Goober
    -Stinker butt

    Yes, the last four may seem mean, but I use them with all the love in the world.

    I also call my young gelding "handsome man", although I usually add "my" to it. I sometimes fondly call my horses "crazy" or "crazy pants". Our older mare is "The Queen", and I sometimes call our younger mare "Eva Diva" just because it rhymes (she's not actually much of a diva and her name is usually just Eva). I am also known to murmur sweet nothings to my horses, such as: "You're my most favorite mustang in the whole wide world" -- although lately I've had to add in additional qualifiers since we now have two mustangs whom I love dearly, so it goes more like: "You're my most favorite mustang mare/gelding in the whole wide world".

    I manage a barn and have pet names for several of the boarded horses that I care for. One of them is named Mickey and I frequently call him Mickey Man -- then sing my own version of the Spider Man theme song with "Mickey Man" in place of "Spider Man". ((It's a good thing I'm a solo barn manager and can get away with these sorts of shenanigans during early morning feeds and turnouts without having to worry about being caught in the act!!))

    My native language isn't English, so some of these will be direct translations. My boys' name is Snickers, and commonly I call him Snicks or Snickey, but he also responds to "Big Brown", "My dear boy" and "Mr.Moose".
