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)

#2) LUNGE (not lounge?) ahahaha I still don't know which is right...

#3) Pastern (not pasturn)

This is a good topic!

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

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!

appylover31803 03-06-2008 01:01 PM

i admit i say horse feet sometimes :oops:

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
