I have "Captain Lard-arse". He is fat "quite chunky". I also have "Dimbo" - he is quite dopey and is just like Dylan off the magic roundabout laid back. Grin

Sometimes I call mine "Mr Horse" Blush. Oh and "Mr Numpty" (often appropriate). Grin

My mumsnet nickname (minus numbers) is my horse's show name. Grin At home she is Snotface, Snottybot, Fatty or Cowface, depending on how she's behaving.

Dirtygit normally. DS calls him donnydonnydondon

DD's pony is sometimes called Pinky (he has a very pink nose).

One of the pointers is nicknamed Big Willie, and one of the racehorses is known as Native Bitch (she is one). We also have Tommy Titmunch, Tricky Bear, Chump and Sneezy. All the horses on the yard have a proper name, a stable name and at least one nickname.

I love fuzzy felts for Shetlands, Saggy.

My friend calls her horse "meat" because she is built and marked like a hereford.

My TB is known as handsome ('cause he is) or grumpy arse depending on his mood. One of the ponies gets called posh pony ('cause he is). He is a very pretty and mannered show pony in the making. The other pony is called bad pony-gues what, 'cause he is. He's a bit of an escape artist and would happily run his own dam over for a blade of grass. There all lovely as they are and very different
