What nicknames do you call your horse?

We call ours Swishy Boy because when he walks to us from out in his pasture with his head down and relaxed, his long tail and belly swish from side to side...

We also call him Sitch, because to my daughter, Sitch is short for Citrus....

What are the names you call your horse (other than barn and show names) and how did you come up with it or why do you call them that?

I used to have a horse named Flicka, and she was the same way...everything was all about her. We called her "Me Me Me" and I used to have a pony that I would call "Poopie" And the horse I ride now, I either call her "Girlie" or "Brat".

Tango is often affectionately called (by me) Tang-gay, The TanMan or the Tanginator.

I sometimes address Lily as Lili (pronounced Lee-Lee, and sometimes Lie-Lie). And, of course, Lil.
