I use "mum" a lot with the mares.

Bart (the school horse I ride) gets Freight Train as a show name cause last winter he was a jerk to stop and we pretty much went full steam ahead no matter what. I also call him DumDum, Old Man, Fatty, Fat Man, Bud, Guy, a bunch of swear words when appropriate and kids moms arent around

I call him Pony (he's an 18 hand Percheron) and Ponses. I'll through a 'Butthead' in there once in a while when he's being a bad pony.

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

I have been noticing our trainer calles him Sit-chree and we also call him Stars, from his registered name.... Swish makes it in there as well, short for swishy boy :)

Cricket has so many nick names. I'm surprised she learned her name through all the crap I call her.

Jiminy (As in Jiminy Cricket... Real original, I KNOW.) Scrooge, Scroogey-Face, Crickiteazer Scrooge, Fatty, Butt nugget, Fatty Mc. Fatterson, Speedy, Freak-face... The list goes on, and on... =D
