Pantaloons and Jodhpurs

Does our title have you totally confused?  If so, you have not been following the adventures of many of our pals:

Juno of Wild Dingo showing off her jodhpurs
Norwood, who shared this most excellent Siber-Monday Deal
Khyra of the serious pantyloons
Cousin Merdie and the Noodleloons
mango ft
And, of course, the ever scary Mangoloons

This would be the point where we carefully explain that each of the above pictures was carefully lifted from the noted blogs and we probably violated a bazillion copyright laws, but we are hoping that the owners have a great sense of humor – and a less than excellent attorney at claw.  They could sue us for all of the profits we receive from The Thundering Herd website, which means that if they sue us, they have to pay us.

Anyway, we thought that since we are already violating laws, we should go ahead and run a contest of skill (because a contest of chance is illegal in our great state, except for the officially sanctioned state lotteries that pull in frillions of dollars to make sure that we have better educated public school students.  I am sure you have all noticed the difference.  The grand prize of this contest – the bragging rights.  Wow, huh?  Anyway, the rules are simple.  Guess each member of The Herd in the following photographs:

    Thanks for my Wednesday morning laugh. Miss Ruby has what we call cargo shorts. Being a wooly who disdains brushing and bathing I am forced to trim her shorts twice a year. Just did her fall trim and gave her the waterless bath to make her smell and look pretty.

      Debbie and Miss Ruby-I too started my Wednesday off with a chuckle! Your girl sounds a little like Typhoon Phooey who hates the brush!!! I’m glad she smells pretty too-after all she is a girl.

  7. Mr Koda MD on December 12, 2009 at 10:33 pm

    #1 Kodiak
    #2 Natasha
    #3 Cheoah
    #4 Kiska
    #5 Rusty
    #6 Quannik

    1 = Cheoah 2 = Kiska 3 = Kodiak 4 = Her Royal Highness 5 = The Rooster 6 = Qannik

    I am definitely sure I got three of those right 🙂

    OM Dawgs… First, we’re honored. JBJ is honored to make it into a TTH post! Second, my people will be calling your people. Third, we’re filing a sibe and de-sibe sibe-action clawsuit!

    Ok, I don’t think i can guess the reds so i will not win the bragging rights. the black and whites are easy cheesy though. #2 is my favorite. all that long fur… i just want to snuggle it.
    Noodleloons rule!

    BTW: #6 a boy in pantyloons is just not right.

  20. Khyra on December 12, 2009 at 1:22 am

    I’m not sure Bricey will make it past #2!

    Merdie and I are soooo furry honoured woo have made us part of a N-o-T-T-H post!

    So not worthy!

    Khyra & Khousin Merdie By Proxy
    PeeEssWoo: I do hope Bricey did make it to #6!
