Spyder is my horse's nickname. That is not his show name or registered name.

Well, I talk to the horses all the time as if we are having a conversation and they were replying to me. =P
I also have nicknames for most of them, although I didn't make all of them up. Here are some of them.
Griffin = Griffster, Griffy Bear
Gabby = Gabbygobble
Aslan = Azzy
Sherman = Sherms, Shermy
Gabriel = Gabe, Boogalou
DoDa = Doodles, Doodlemagoodle
TickTock = Tickers, Tick Man, TickyTock, Tockster

When I first got Miss Take, I tried a lot of different nicknames. The ones that have stuck are Miss T, pony, and love. In fact, I've started calling my dog "pony" as well. Whoops!

Chinga gets many nicknames, hehe they change all the time -- he comes to anything these days. Silly pony, you guys have really cute nick names. I guess his main nickname would be Dooy, Its just something cute I started calling him.

Caleb is big smelly, the smell, or smeller and his brother Calvin is big stinky, stinker, or stinkaroo. As a pair, we call them the Barn Odors since they are the cause of most anything we smell around the barn.

Gypsie is... Gyps, Gyppie, Guppie, Tippy, Tispy, and Baby Girl...

Dakota is... Kota, Cody Bay, Bay Boy, Buddy, Booby, Big Booby, Cody, Dakoy, and Tupid Man (Stupid Man)...

While I'm here, I gotta tell the story behind the 'Tupid Man' name... I was riding Gypsie in the pasture and we'd 'disappeared' according to Dakota (He couldn't find us and was running around the pasture hunting us). Me and Gypsie had stopped fr a break on top of one of the hill and I was watching Dakota look for us... He was going in the opposite direction, so I hollered for him and he stopped, looked around, looked right at us, then continued away from us still hollering. I yelled for him again and this time he saw us and ran up to us. I was thinking 'how stupid you are' and remembered my mum calling my stepdad 'Tupid Man' a few times, so it just came out and when he got to us I was like ''You Tupid Man, you!"
