Brilliant name!

Is she the colour of acacia wood?

Just don't be calling her "ACK!!"

I knew a horse named "Icky" for short once. His name was Icy (something or other..).

2 more sleeps.
Easy, now, eaaasy.

Very original and interesting. Hopefully you can develop a symbiotic relationship with her like the ants do with the tree in Africa.

Hmm, now that would be an interesting intro on a method of approaching training.
