I am not big on changing names. It's part of our identity! But our students won!
Overture came to the ranch, and I simply could not remember her name. Her father's name was Triple Charm, so it made sense to call her Charm. But our students (Sophie and Sophia to name names) thought she looked more like an Oreo Cookie. And since she came with Shadowbrook (which I had shortened to Shadow), Shadow should be named Brownie.
I fought it for 3 months, but I give up. Oh big sigh from me (poor Patty!) ;) So, please meet Oreo and Brownie aka Charm and Shadow formerly Overture and Shadowbrook!
Mr. Jiggles real name is Lacrosse, another name I struggled remembering. I did ask his owner what his nickname was and Lilianna said that when he ws fat she would call him Jiggles. Well every time I said Jiggles, I smiled and so did everyone else. Some giggled though and I thought he needed a bit more refinement. He is a regal Arabian after all. So Mr Jiggles it became! Mr Jiggles, by the way is doing great! He is already in classes and gets along well with the herd now! He is a member of the family!
Now I think everyone else is keeping their names. And so, Avalon, Brownie, Cool Man, Dawn, Gwen, Holly, Honey, Mr. Jiggles, Okie, Oreo, Rocky, and Romney, want to say "Thank you" to our amazing volunteers that help care for them and keep their home safe and comfortable and for those who haven't met them yet, "Come and meet us! We LOVE getting scratches!".
