Love it, Pearl! When we moved onto our little pruvate drive, I knew the names of our neighbors Appaloosa mules (Eco and Shyanne) waaaay before I could remember the names of their owners!
My husband is a big bronie (bronie=guy who likes My Little Pony) and while he was cleaning the table today he randomly said, "Mods are sleeping--Post Ponies!" It made me laugh so hard, and I said, "I should totally post that meme on permies!" He said, "You'll get that post taken down in like 10 minutes! Mods hate ponies." I think sometimes he forgets that I am a mod, and I don't hate ponies, LOL!
Thankfully, permies has a wonderful place for totally off topic things, like ponies! I love Meaningless Drivel!
I'm actually not a horse person. I AM a animal person, when I meet a pile of creatures, I'll remember the animal's names, but not the humans. I know the neighbor's dog's names here at this rental, but the neighbors? Hm, I'd have to check my phone for their names, I know I notated it...
Me and ponies do not get along: I had one and his name was Gluestick if that tells you anything.
Having four daughters, I know all the names of my the Little Pony's: Fluttershy, Applejack, Twighlight Sparkle, etc.
In going with the all-girl theme here, and having a wife, dog, cat, bunny, gold fish and duck that are also all female; I am the only sole male thing in this house or barn!
For that reason, I not only know My Little Ponies, I also know all the names of Barbies and her three sisters, and their whole back-story like where they came from (Wisconsin), and why they do not have a Mother, and never see their father Mr. Roberts. And having four daughters, I call them all by Barbie Names to tease them.
