Evasion and Motherhood

Instinct demands the mother be circuitous with her new foal.

Some foals simply name themselves. Because this filly is the result of a cross between a big black horse named Street Fighter and a black mare called Flower Child, her racehorse name will be War and Peace.

(Not that she will be a racehorse, it’s a naming game horse people play).

Also, she has a face marking that looks like a crescent moon and the planet Venus, so she could be called Venus and Mars. The violence vs gentle theme still applies. Shall we call her Peace or Venus?
