Jebediah McCants

by brae  

That's my horse's name - Jebediah McCants. Maybe I'm wrong, but I doubt anyone guessed it. :D

I looked up the meaning of Jebediah, and it means "beloved friend." McCants is some distant ancestral name, and I thought the names sounded good together. I'm figuring our RFD carrier is Mr. McCants, since the carriers were charged with supplying their own transportation, therefore caring for their own horses.

Jebediah looks eager to get on with things, no? I'm gearing up to gear him up, researching more in depth on harnesses and the like. More on that to come...

He does look as if he's bored and eager to get to work.

Beloved Friend is absolutely appropriate for a work horse.

Pepper - you know we're going to find a hidden stash of those books years from now once we no longer need it. |-|

Jebediah McCants is just glaringly obvious.
