So. Many of you participated in our friendly “What should we name our neighborly horse” poll we had up for the last few weeks. You will notice to the right that the results are displayed in a dead tie. What I want to know is
WHO VOTED FOR NANCY???
Really people, cmon. This horse is neither a secretary nor a school teacher therefore it should not ever be named Nancy. This was Jazz’s choice and I’m sure some of you voted purely for that reason. Let’s just say I’m glad Jazz will not be naming our children by himself. (No Jazz, He-Man can not be considered)
Nelly is a beautiful horse name. It is soft and smooth. It can be used many different situations, such as: “Gmorning Nelly!” and “Cmere Nelly!” and “Whoa, Nelly” Nelly is a perfect horse name.
Here is a picture of our unnamed horse:
*editors note: this little mask on Horse’s face isn’t to punish her or be mean. Its a fly mask used to keep bugs and infections out. It is netted so she can see through it and get to her delicious grass and cool refreshing water.
Here are the reasons why I chose Nancy, for the most beautiful horse name ever! Nancy and I have had many conversations, and here are a few of her memorable quotes for reasons why her name is Nancy:
1. “My name is Nancy, Commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Mother to a murdered son, Wife to a murdered husband. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.”
2. “You bring the crowns and heads of conquered kings to my city steps. You insult my king. You threaten my horses with slavery and death! Oh, I’ve chosen my words carefully, Jazz. Perhaps you should have done the same! I am Nancy!
3. “Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of horsekind. “Horsekind.” That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it’s fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom… Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution… but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: “We will not go quietly into the night!” We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on! We’re going to survive! Today we celebrate Nancy Day!
I could go on and on, but these are 3 great reasons why Nancy should be named Nancy! I rest my case
