:DHI All! I was just wondering why some of us chose our unique user name and the story behind them. Sometimes it is personnal and some are just for humor, as is mine! I thought it would be interesting to put this out there and see what responses I get. It would be amazing and quite impressive if everyone who is registered answered this but lets see how many we get!

I chose mine as I stumbled in from the freezing weather one morning. I had just finished barn chores and my face was numb from the cold. I forced my thawing feet to climb the stairs all the while grumbling about the cold and muttering something about feeling like a slave to the horses. I grew up all my life on a farm of some sort so the animals and the responsiblity were always there. I just wonder sometimes if keeping them is worth the hassle. It's like a bought marriage!:) We can't travel too far, animals to feed at the 8am and 5pm. Finding someone to do the chores for us is like pulling teeth and then the constant worry about their care while we are away -Jheeze! I don't even want to go there! All that time, effort and large amounts of money!!! An entire lifestyle revolving around them! No wonder my non horsey friends think I am nuts!!

Then I think back as what my life would have been without them. A possible canidate for teenage pregnancy (no time for boys if I was on a horse!). Maybe a druggie wasting money on substances that poison our bodies. The "High" I get from trail riding with good friends would top anything I could buy on a shady end of town! Of all the possible situations I imagine I can't imagine my life any other way. I am so fortunate to be able to have such great, caring and dependable four legged friends. So What if I'm numb from head to toe mucking stalls or sweating bullets while putting square bales of hay in the hot loft- I'm happy to be their slave and wouldn't trade it for the world!

Mine is easy and boring. I'm from Minnesota and the first horse I've ever actually owned (all mine!) is a dun with very pronounced striping on his legs. So... MN Tigerstripes!

Weird story, I had a dream my mom and I went out to MN and somehow my horse appeared there. My mom had us kick a horse out of this stall at a boarding barn so we could keep my mare there. My mom let the other horse run wild. It was soo weird, I think because I saw your username before I went to bed LOL.

You know that silly bunny on tshirts with the rude remarks? I live him. and my bday is jan 14 1986.

I had two loves as a wee girl child; horses and Speed Racer. :wink:

Some of y'all are obviously too young to remember the original Speed Racer animation series, but I adored it.

It's hokey, outdated, and the anime isn't anywhere close to being as good as the stuff they have nowadays, but I still have soft spot in my heart for Speed. Le sigh....

I rediscovered my addiction when I found out that Hulu has ALL the original series available to watch.

So yeah, I'm a little weird taking Speed Racer as my user name, but reliving my childhood is fun! :D

Heehee! :lol:


i got my name from a Hobbit Name generator (which isn't online any more) several years ago when Lord Of The Rings was in cinemas - I wasn't a huge fan of the fillums, but I put my name into the thing and it said my Hobbit name was Lobelia Overhill of Nobottle which I thought was funny, and I've been using it ever since.

Can't you guess? :D

It's a name I've used for over 15 years so it was a natural to use it when I joined the forum.
