Just another day in the life of a quasi-famous blogger. I went online this morning to check my comments and what did I see but a rather intriguing request from Wood-Moore Manor in South Africa, a breeding farm for racehorses. Now usually I just ignore the notes – I mean how many children can one woman father right? But this note was different and so I responded.
Comment (as published on my Dear Stalkers page):
As registered thoroughbred racehorse breeders, we often look for names for our new foals. We were on the e-net today looking for a potential name for one of our foals, which is expected tonight. The mares name is Corn Syrup and your webpage is linked to a the word “Corn Syrup”. Perhaps you may have a fantastic name for a racehorse? Wood-Moore Manor
See what I mean? How could I resist? So I pondered the question and wrote back the following:
VT Fancy (it’s a kind of Vermont Maple Syrup)
So if anyone out there has any other names that might be good for Corn Syrup’s foal, please write in. I’ve requested a picture of the new baby so if they send me one, I’ll post it up.
