I really can't get a solid grasp of my horse's name. It's Sherwin and I find myself calling him Sherman all the time. We call him "Sher" a lot which to me sounds like a combo of "her" and "she" and well, he's a boy so it's just dumb.
Honestly I'm not if love with either version and have considered changing it. He's at least 18 (most people who've seen him think mid to late 20s) so would it be cruel to change it if he's had it all his life?
