Barack, Muhammad's horse
Deseret News ^ | 07/28/08 | Carlton T. Sumison

Sen. Barack Obama's middle name -- Hussein -- should not be associated with a few unpopular characters. The late King Hussein of Jordan was a friend of this country. Sen. Obama's first name -- Barack -- is more interesting. Barack (Lightning) was the name of the Prophet Muhammad's horse, which giving a tremendous leap, carried the Prophet Muhammad up to heaven. It would be interesting to have a president named for the Prophet Muhammad's horse.

A few years ago I had an Arabian horse to train, and I tried to name him al-Barak, after the flying horse of Mo. Funny thing was, he refused to answer to it. Most horses learn a new name in a matter of a few days, and Arabians are exceptionally intelligent so one wouldn’t think it would take very long. But he resolutely refused to come when he was called by that name.

Horses’ names can be famous for who they carried....especially during the Civil War.

General Sheridan’s horse was named “Rienzi”, (Wagner’s only really bad opera, BTW.)

General Lee’s horse was “Traveller”

General Forrest probably never had time to name any of his horses because he had 30 shot out from underneath him.

;-)

Albuquerque New Mexico is named after Mohammed’s horse, as well (al-buquerk, or al-barak).

(Actually, after a place in Spain that was named for his horse.)

I think that in the interests of separation of church and state, the ACLU should demand it be renamed...

The horse probably answered to "Billy-bob", though...

OTOH, Wikipedia says :

“Thus, the word Alburquerque may be rooted in the Arabic (Moorish) ‘Abu al-Qurq’, which means “father of the cork oak”, or “land of the cork oak” (the land as father - fatherland). Alternately, it may be Latin (Roman) in origin and from ‘albus quercus’ or “white oak” (the wood of the cork oak is white after the bark has been removed). The seal of the Spanish village of Alburquerque is a white oak tree, framed by a shield, topped by a crown.”

He answered to “Samuel” or “Sammy.” We used to joke that he wasn’t an Arab horse, he was Jewish.

Why, Obama, of course. (It's at the back end of Barack, isn't it?)

Cheers!

Barak means “lightning” in Hebrew, but he doesn’t have a Hebrew name. In Arabic, which I don’t know and am guessing, I think it means “blessed.”

Hmmm, Mohammed's horse was white...

Revelation 6:2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

On a related note:

When the persimmons or acorns start falling, some horses will congregate under the trees to eat them. It appears the attraction to acorns is individual, but once started these individuals will spend much of their time waiting for the next acorn to fall! Since this obsession is to the exclusion of other activities, such as grazing, the horse eats a tremendous volume of acorns.

All of a sudden, the digestive tract is loaded with the high protein meal of nuts. The combination of high fat and high protein is a sudden change. The intestines’ natural response to such a strange feed is to purge it from the body. Fluids rush into the intestine to dilute out the new feed and form bulk which stimulates bowel activity. The protein of the nut meat inflames the lining, stimulating even more activity. The result of all this is a hyperactive bowel and...

The problem with acorns
