Well, Hubby emailed me the other day and said that the military base where he works is thinking about having horse riding… It is not definite, they are just thinking about it.
Anyway, the proposal called for trail names based on War Horses.
Hubby asked me to offer a few and – of course – I had many suggestions:
Black Jack (caisson horse for JFK)
Comanche (sole survivor of Little Big Horn)
Little Sorrel (ridden by Stonewall Jackson)
Traveller (General Robert E Lee)
Blackie (Sitting Bull)
Jimson the mule – 2nd Battalion, The Duke of Cambridge’s Own (Middlesex Regiment), India and the Boer War.
Babieca: (horse of El Cid)
The list went on and on…
I also gave to Hubby this incredible website that listed so many War Horses that I was sure they would have ample suggestions in the ‘Trail Naming Meeting’.
I wanted to bring this awesome War Horse list to you that I originally found here.
THE AMAZING WAR HORSE LIST.
I noted that there were many names that started with “Old” and “Little”. Also, I hope “Plug Ugly” was an affectionate term…
Anyway, there is so much information here, I cannot wait to do some research!
