Population boom

Say what you want about gentrification in Northeast Portland -- what about equification?

Had dinner on Friday night at a new restaurant in the Pearl called "Graze". Nice place, sort of a small-plates tapas kind of concept.

Anyway, they've got a massive (like 8 ft by 10 ft) mural photograph of one of these Portland plastic horsies.


I was on NW 23rd today and had to walk with my head down because my niece was DESPERATE to see as many of these little horses as she could find. Stragely we only saw 1.

So where do they display their Ring Rental receipt?

Why, under their tails, of course.

Shouldn't that be equinification?

Did I miss something? Whats the big deal with these?


The Latin word for horse is equus.

This is art? Gimme a break.


Ah, but in English we have equine.

"Equine" is the adjective. The verb would be "equify"; it would not have the "-ine" in it, because that's an adjectival form.

Give the guy a break. He's undoubtedly an equinestrian.

Unless, of course, she's an equinestrienne.

"Equine" is the adjective.

It is also the noun.


- equine adjective
- equine noun
- equine·ly adverb

Swell. You do it your way, I'll do it mine.

Looks like it's about time for a roundup.
