User name...How did you choose yours?

I have wondered about this. New member Wisewoman did some explanation and Tinyliny commented on what she was not. So, how did you come up with yours?

Mine came from a conversation I had with a coworker many years ago. We both had large dogs and she was talking about the dustbunnies he created. I had an English Setter. Wonderful dogs but lots of silky, fine, white hair. I commented that I constantly had dustbunnies so healthy that I could enter them in the county fair and win ribbons. So, being a trail rider, dust and all that, it seemed like a good name.

I had a job several years back working behind the gun counter of the local Sportsman's Warehouse.

I slung guns back and forth across the counter all day....

AKA "Gunslinger".

The name I use on another board, Topcat, was taken. So the first thing that popped in my mind was this. It is sometimes used as slang by Alabama fans. I suspect there are a few here but been nice. It can get pretty weird.

It was from another forum for artists. I used to do a lot more painting before I had horses, so when I found this forum, I just re-used the same username thinking I probably wouldn't post here a lot. LOL

I don't go to the art forum anymore.

One of the first movies I watched had a horse named saigold, I think it was called ‘primo baby’. Not actually sure how they spelled it. But that’s where mine is from.

I used my real name because I am naturally blonde and dumb. Lol. But it's okay, half of my country is called Jolien, it's a popular name here. :P It's like John in America. Which John?

The truth is I am really impulsive and I saw this forum and I was like OMG A HORSE FORUM IMMA SIGN UP and I immediately made an account and didn't think. As usual.

Y'all are so inventive! I've never been on a forum or online type of chat (are there still chat rooms?) so I didn't know about making up names, lol

If I was to begin again, I would be Chivas Mom
