I had a neighbor stop by the house one day with a Pony. Unfortunately it did not follow him home. Knowing equines as I do, I appropriately named it GlueStick.
The Pony had this habit of whenever you approached it, it would wait until you got within an inch of its bridle, then twist its head and run. I said many, many bad words at that Pony, and I NEVER say bad words unless I am really mad. I also followed that up numerous times with "I'm gonna shoot you."
So one day we were at this restaurant eating with my 5 year old daughter and I was telling her how Gluestick ran off on me again. She looks up and says in a really loud voice, "Did you shoot my Pony Daddy". Everyone in the restaurant turns and looks at me as if I am the worst Dad in all the world, and I was like, "No I didn't shoot it." So then she says, "Well the last time you said if Gluestick did that again you were going to shoot it". I never did, but I did give the Pony away to someone else latter on that winter.
Man I hated that Pony, hence its name.
BTW: If you want to make a thousand dollars with horses, make sure you have two thousand to start with!
