This makes me sad.
First, that (after doing a little research) it's pretty obvious what the widely recognized meaning of the word is. It's hard not to judge intent, but it is almost obvious that this is done with no good intentions.
Secondly, IF it was done to 'send a message' or offend people of a certain ethnicity, it makes me sad that it has so negatively affected a personal friend of mine.
dba .. if you believe the intent was to enflame ... DON'T LET THEM.
Yes, I would petition AHA, but I doubt they will change the name .. especially if he's already been bred.
I would boycott that horse, any of his get, and possibly barns associated with them ... but DON"T LET THEM STEAL YOUR JOY!
You can't control the actions of other folks, my friend, only your reaction to them.
It would be a shame to lose you as an AHA supporter .. and, again, let them win ... IF this was done with the worse intentions, what would they like more than to run the Jews off?
Poor horse .. with a name like that ..
Don't let'em get to ya, my friend. YOU have more value than some stupid, idiot, anti-semitic word.
Love you, man... *hugs*
