TOABH: A Rose

I missed the last iteration of TOABH's hop on idiosyncrasies, but for those interested in Isabel's little quirks, they're all documented here haha.

Meanwhile, for this week's question, we get to dive into the world of pet names - both good and bad lol.


A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.
Every horse seems to have at least three names: the “real” one, the barn one, and that special one. What are some of your pony’s names?

First off, the most common appellations are Isabel and Izzy (and even just Iz).

Then her show name is Isabel's Charm, which I wrote about here (and included baby pictures!!!).

Then there are all the other names she gets called. In no particular order:

Princess
Ms Thing
Izamonster
Mare
Ms Iz (aka Missus)
Hey Girl (not really a nickname, but she gets called this pretty often anyway lol)
Snizzle or Snizzy


Surely there are more (and her owner likely has her own set too), but this'll do for now :)

    1. hahaha actually you might be seriously right about that!

      hilariously tho - that's one of the names that ppl figure out themselves. both the chiro and saddle fitter called her ms thing and princess without knowing those actually her nicknames... guess we know she comes by them naturally?
