Call me maybe

Today we walked by a neighbor who shouted out a greeting to me and “Shiller.” I get it. Shimmer doesn’t look like a “Shimmer.” He’s tall, elegant and graceful, yet masculine. Shimmer sounds like a stripper’s name or a word used to describe nail polish. Nevertheless, that was his racing name and Joan decided to keep it with him.

However, that doesn’t mean it’s easy for people to remember. Here’s a partial list of what Shimmer’s been called by his fans recently:

Shiller
Shindler
Shingles
Shivers
Shimmy
Shrimpers

Shimmer doesn’t care. He likes people even if they get his name wrong.
