This is not a new Iron Man sport. Please, horse people, realize what your non-horsey friends/family are going to hear should you start using the term “Throwing” in horse lingo. If you say, for instance, that mare has frequently thrown chestnuts, no one is going to picture her giving birth. Non horse people will duck and cover around that mare, thinking they might get pelted with the nuts she just roasted over an open fire with Jack Frost.
And after you tell someone she threw a really nice foal, they will hate her for picking up and throwing a really nice foal. Remember to say: “That mare often gives birth to nice orange-colored foals.”
